Style Pick of the Week: Wellen Wind Shell

This is the lightweight, dependable jacket to carry you through breezy summer nights.

If you’ve kept up with the happenings here at The Style Guide in the way of summer style essentials, you’ll probably recognize Wellen — and if you’ve dug into this stylish and sustainable brand, perhaps you even recognize the Wellen Wind Shell. We’ve previously covered the Wellen Hemp Polo, and the Wellen Wind Shell delivers on that same blend of eco-conscious style. It’s one of the best men’s jackets for your money’s worth, and although it’s July, that’s no time to scoff at this handsome piece of outerwear (especially considering it’s Fourth of July weekend and all). For breezy summer nights, rainy day hikes or chilly nights around the bonfire, the Wellen Wind Shell is what it’s all about when it comes to a versatile, stylish piece of lightweight outerwear.
The Best Basics. Summer Ready.

So, the specs of this durable rain jacket? We’re talking a lightweight stretch fabric that moves with you (not against you), the kind of jacket that should be quite easy to throw on as you head out the door, and even easier to pack in your go-to weekender bag before you hit the road. It’s equally parts functional and fashionable, and that’s something I always support.

A no-frills rain jacket that’s going to go anywhere you go this season.

Crucially, the Wellen Wind Shell is a water-resistant jacket to shed light rain and splashes — the perfect jacket to throw on if the weather takes a turn after a day at the beach or an evening BBQ. But this isn’t just a rain jacket — it’s also something of a handy travel jacket, made with YKK zippers for added durability and featuring bar tacks at stress points for an even more rugged design. Mesh lining also provides critical breathability, so this isn’t simply a rain jacket that’s suffocating. Seriously, the Wellen Wind Shell defies all expectations of what a lightweight summer jacket should be, and that’s not a bad thing to have in your wardrobe. Cinchable hems provide additional protection from the elements, too. And perhaps the best additional feature? The two distinct, versatile, easily wearable colorways — the Deep Sea color shown in this post might just be the prime option to buy, but you can’t go wrong with the dark black-blue Carbon Wind Shell. Either would pair nicely with the kind of casual summer style picks you’ve hopefully got on hand, from slim light wash denim and a classic Oxford shirt to a rugged short-sleeve henley and the perfect pair of summer shorts. Add in the Wellen Wind Shell, and you’re truly all set for whatever the season throws your way.
