In today’s selection we will be taking a look at 7 affordable 3-in-1 jackets for both men and women.
In some of our past selections and reviews we have looked at several 3-in-1 jackets, but today’s picks are in general cheaper than any other 3-in-1 design we have included in the previous pieces.
For those who are unfamiliar with what a 3-in-1 jacket is, it usually consists of a waterproof or highly water-resistant outer shell and a fleece inner jacket.
Both of these, according to what type of weather you will be dealing with, can be worn separately, as jackets on their own, or put together as the “third” jacket for when it’s really cold out.
With that out of the way, let’s get started with the jackets we have selected.
* Note: The availability of the products in this page (including colors and sizes) might change at any time. Also please check the products materials and features on the various shops before buying. We do our best to assure the accuracy of our articles, but sometimes they might contain errors. The product images shown are for illustration purposes only.
New Balance Men’s Softshell 3-In-1 Jacket
We will be starting things off with the men’s selection and the first jacket is by New Balance, which comes with a 92% Polyester and 8% Spandex shell.
This outer shell is similar to that of a soft shell jacket, which is one of the best sports options due to breathability and comfort in wear. It is water and wind resistant, with a detachable hood, which is lined for added warmth.
There are two side pockets and one chest pocket, all with zipper closures. The inside of this outer jacket is also lined with fleece, which is not very common with 3-in-1 systems, as they are usually lined with mesh fabric. For this reason, this jacket is quite warm on its own and even more so when put together with the inner fleece jacket.
Speaking of which, it is made of 100% soft Polyester fleece, which provides great insulation and comfort. There are three colors to choose from: Black, Orca and Lead.
Wantdo Men’s Interchange 3 in 1 Ski Jacket
The second design for men is by Wantdo, a brand that has appeared a few other times on our site. This is the Interchange 3 in 1 Ski Jacket, which resembles a short parka in how it performs.
It is a heavy winter jacket. The upper jacket is wind and waterproof, with a detachable hood and three outer pockets, two on the sides and one on the chest, as well as one inner security pocket. It comes with adjustable sleeve cuffs and the main zipper is covered by a storm flap. Its shell has also been treated with water-repellent coating in order to minimize water contact.
The inner jacket is also not one you’d find in a typical 3-in-1 jacket system, as this one is a puffer jacket, with 2400 g cotton padding for insulation. It comes with two side pockets and a sturdy medium-height collar.
This is a design most suitable for very unstable and cold conditions, where rain and wind are to be expected. There are four colors available: Army green, Dark blue, Black and Grey.
