Editor’s Review Old Navy Waterproof Hooded Zip Jacket I
Now that it’s fall, I’ve been obsessed with curating the perfect collection of cold-weather basics: high quality denim, cozy flannelsand my latest find: a lightweight nylon jacket, especially Old Navy Waterproof Performance Hooded Zip Jacket ($60). I personally have one ton jackets are suitable for really cold temperatures but are considerably less light to wear when the weather changes erratically. (My cotton Lululemon Define jacket definitely won’t withstand an autumn rain.) Before that, I break down everything you need to know about autumn wardrobe silhouette.
What I love about this old navy jacket
I ordered the navy blue option called “In the Navy” in the medium size and was really pleased with its quality and extremely functional details. It has it all: a built-in snorkel hood with stand-up collar, adjustable drawstring, zippered pockets and mesh hood lining. There’s a ventilation hole in the front and back of the waistband, which helps keep water out of the jacket and gives it some character at the same time. I styled it over a white tank top and high-waisted jeans, which evoke the vibe I wanted: low-key but chic. It was exactly what I was looking for, it reminded me of a vintage gem I found (and stole) from my dad’s closet – and for that reason I’m obsessed.
Something worth noting
Over 100 shoppers have reviewed this jacket, and the majority have rated it 5 stars. There’s one consistent complaint among those who give it less than four stars: it runs big – and I agree, although I like the oversized fit. If you want the jacket to be a more true-to-size fit, you may want to downsize at least one full size.
Who Is This Old Navy Jacket Best For?
This jacket is best suited for those who are looking for a lightweight jacket that is ideal for transitioning from summer to fall. Those who prefer a comfortable, plus-size fit will appreciate this style as well as those looking for protection from seasonal elements like rain or wind.
