In today’s article we are introducing you to some nice KTM soft shell jackets for both men and women that can be used when practicing your favorite outdoor sport, also during this summer season, in the cooler days, why not.
Summer is the season of short sleeves and sunny days. Most people relate summer with the beach and short dresses and no one even considers jackets as an item to be worn during the season. Summer this year, though, is being a bit fussy, at least here in Italy, and for some of us, jackets have to be worn for a bit longer than previous years.
Maybe when we think of jackets, usually what comes to mind are those heavy winter jackets, with the fur lined hoods and down feather lining. They are most definitely not wearable during autumn, let alone summer.
Luckily, though, there are options available, and those that are most popular and suitable for breezy nights are softshell jackets. Lightweight, comfortable and highly breathable, they are a must-have for everyone, whether you are an active sporty person, or are simply planning on going out when it’s a bit cooler outside.
With so many brands out there and hundreds, if not thousands, of designs, patterns and colors, good softshell jackets are not hard to find. But they are tedious, however, because you need to look for the one that suits you best, whether it is in style, functionality or purpose.
The KTM jackets we’re presenting today are high quality jackets, with interesting designs and suitable for those who take exercising seriously. Some of the designs can even be worn casually, so look for the one that serves you best.
We will begin with the ladies’ selection and then head on to the jackets for men.
KTM Soft Shell Jackets for Women:
KTM Factory Team Jacket
The first one is this casual softshell, which comes in a color combination of dark grey, on the outside, and orange on the inside and main zipper.

KTM Two 4 Ride Jacket
This next jacket is a typical sport softshell jacket. Lightweight, waterproof and windproof, with a high collar and Velcro on the cuffs, you can wear it when practicing your favorite sport. It is suitable to be worn at night as well, due to the reflective patches on the shoulders for your safety.
The collar is high and it comes with an integrated hood that can be adjusted with drawstrings. There are two side pockets and one left chest pocket. This is a bit of a loose fit jacket that comes only in a color combination of dark grey and orange.
KTM Factory Team Jacket
Another dark grey and orange jacket, this is a jacket fit for biking. It comes with a high collar and integrated, adjustable hood as well as three pockets. The two side pockets are a bit high, and the chest zipper pocket is a bit centered and nicely sized.
The cuffs are long, with Velcro closures for adjustment and there is mesh lining on the inside that allows for high breathability, which is essential when biking for long hours. It is a windproof and waterproof jacket, that comes in a slim fit design.
KTM MTB Factory Team Jacket
This next jacket is a windbreaker jacket. It is mildly see-through, in the color black. It comes with elastic bands around the cuffs and hem, so when zippered it fits tightly around the hips for maximum insulation. The collar is quite high, but there is no hood accompanying it.
This is a very suitable jacket for biking or running, since it’s waterproof, windproof and very light.
KTM Factory Team Short Sleeved Jacket
For ending this selection now it comes a short sleeved jacket. It is made of polyester, with a mesh lining. It is a highly breathable jacket, resistant against both water and wind. There is elastic band around the waist as well, making this jacket a slim fit design. It is suitable for most sports, but due to it being very lightweight and breathable, it’s good for outdoor sports during warm weather.
The color available is a combination of black and orange, with the brand’s logo on both sleeves and left side of the chest. There are two side pockets, which are placed more towards the sides rather than front, and there is no hood attached.
This is the most suitable KTM soft shell jacket to end this article with, since it’s versatile and can be worn even during summer time without running the risk of overheating.
