Best Surf, Skate & Street Windbreakers in 2020



Rip Curl Men's Elite Anti Series Hooded Wind Breaker Review:


This is the best jacket in the world. Anybody looking for something lightweight but it can also take a little bit of wind in a little bit of cold this is the jacket for you. It goes well with a lot of outfits and you can wear it on a summer night or a winter night. Might want to put another layer if it's 55 or below. Rip Curl nailed it with this anti-series. Recommend this to any dude or friend of mine.



Alpha Industries Men's NASA MA-1 Bomber Flight Jacket Review:


So I've always wanted this jacket both as a souvenir & for fashion of course, Recently Logic released an Album which most definitely rekindled my interest in sporting this jacket as Logic has a bunch of these that he swags in almost always & I'm proper into astronomy & science so it was only right to get it as it portrays me perfectly.

Initially I loitered on Alpha Industries website considering to buy it or not but they didn't have my size, so alternatively I went to the most trustworthy & reliable source I have previously dealt with, Amazon. they also didn't have my size but I figured that an XL would have to do the trick as it's most likely to be one of those type of jackets you need to get a size up for. I was right the XL fits me perfectly so make sure to get a size up when you order this. I was expecting it to arrive in a week or so but it arrived in 3 days!!!! so sick. The quality is impeccable and as expected, the comfort is unreal, it's nice and warm & the patches are top notch, I'm British so I'll be adding the union jack patch in due time ;), but yeah if you love space & science or your just a fashionable, urban or expressive person, THIS IS A MUST BUY!!! - @KennethMoneyman



Alpha Industries Men's MA-1 Flight Bomber Jacket Review:


So the jacket is high quality nylon with strong thread as well. The cut and fit are spot on military. With all that being said I was looking closer at the fit between this and the slim fit. One thing must be understood about the original, it’s made to work with other military clothing and equipment. As an example, if you’re wearing a flight suit and other equipment you need a jacket that fits over this and allows your arms to move freely. This jacket as a result has generous room in the upper arm area and a pocket attached to the left arm. It looks great! I can even wear a hoodie underneath without a problem. If you’re looking for a less functional but more fitted look go for the slim fit. The arms on the slim fit are less roomy but look better for sure. Either style looks great. The only down side to this jacket is all the loose threads. They really aren’t an issue. Just take some sciccors and trim away. I use a lighter after I trim the thread low. If you do that be careful not to burn anything you don’t want burned. So, maybe don’t use the lighter. Lol. The fit also reminds me of a tanker jacket I used to wear in the Army. So now that you know remember that, “knowing is half the battle.”



Southpole Men's Windbreaker Review:


For the price I was not expecting a lot, but I was surprised at the Quality and the Design. The nylon outer and the inner mesh lining do a good job keeping me dry and warm in a mild cool rain, while staying comfortable from sweat and great freedom of movement. Be aware this version only partly unzips while can be a deal breaker for some. Though good, if the jacket was self packing it would be even better. The center pocket should be much smaller and have a Velcro zipper so it self packs. For me having 2 side pockets are not needed, since the jackets has a center pocket.



Southpole Men's Water Resistance Hooded Windbreaker Jacket Review:


I probably should have given this coat a 4 star rating, given that it is certainly cut on the small side. It deserves 5 stars, though, in all other ways. It's well-constructed with features you'd see on more expensive windbreakers. I particularly like the zippered pockets, full lining (mesh for breathing), and the well-constructed zipper pocket at the neck. Since I'll use this for running on chilly or threatening rain mornings, I won't be heavily dressed and the snug fit won't be a problem. Still, know that I usually wear a medium and a large was a snug fit. In my case, an x-large wouldn't have been out of the question.



Champion LIFE Men's Anorak Windbreaker Review:


Its a nice jacket. Fitted fit. Got 3X. So not stretchy. Still nice. Expensive for what it is but i mean thats what you Pay for brand. Pretty nice overall though.



Alpha Industries Men's MA-1 Flight Bomber Jacket Review:


Sizing:
Tall sizing could be longer but I am 6'6. The jacket sits just below my belt at the back and a little lower than that at the front. Sleeves are great length wise. I also think the sleeves are great in terms of fit with just the right amount of room. To those used to buying MA-1s from the likes of H&M/Uniqlo/other fashion retailers, going true to size on this will result in a slightly oversized fit (which is good for a bomber of this type). The body is perhaps slightly too generous as fabric tends to fold on the back considerably, but this is a matter of taste I suppose. It's a classic fit MA-1 true to the original worn by pilots and doesn't feature a modern, slim fit.

Quality:
The nylon is fantastic, dense, water repellent and has a nice satin sheen to it. Zips are all beefy and feel like they'll last years. Stitching looks and feels sturdy. Cuffs are all a fairly heavy weave which makes them feel durable too. To be honest the only letdown is the remove before flight tag, these are very thin material which frays very quickly (experience from a previous Alpha MA-1 I owned). If you want one that will last you'll probably have to go to eBay!

Hopefully this helps someone with a similar build to me looking for an MA-1.
