The new Zero Jacket from On is light as a feather - and yet offers protection from the wind and wet while running. The jury of the ISPO Award 2022 liked the minimalist running jacket, which convinces with breathability, easy packability and an almost imperceptible feel.
When developing the Zero Jacket, the Swiss sports brand aimed to reduce every detail to a minimum for maximum performance. The jacket should give the wearer an effortless feeling while running. The result is one of the lightest running jackets on the market. The Zero Jacket is made from 100 percent recycled polyamide mini-ripstop fabric and has been treated with a water-repellent DWR coating that is PFOS-free. The thin yet durable material appears almost transparent and makes the jacket very easy to stow.
The technologies used strike a balance between windproofness and breathability. The fabric has a weight of just 29 grams per square meter. Thanks to other extremely lightweight details such as the zipper tape, the Women Zero Jacket in size Small comes in at just 51.8 grams and the men's version in size Medium at 60.6 grams. On offers the Zero Jacket for men and women in the colors Twilight and White/Meadow.
With its minimalist look, the Zero Jacket also scores style points. On's design inspiration was the motto "Speed of Light" combined with influences from nature. "The Zero Jacket is an ultra-light running jacket whose appearance is reminiscent of the wings of a dragonfly. The color gradient also symbolizes the speed of movement," says Daniel Hanssler, Apparel Product Management Lead at On, summarizing the benefits of the jacket.
The Zero Jacket is designed for ambitious runners with high goals and a minimalist attitude. It is best suited for light, fast running and training in unpredictable weather. Then it protects against cold wind and rain and keeps the body warm in motion without burdening the runner with its weight.

Due to the recycled materials used, the Zero Jacket scored points with the ISPO Award jury in the areas of sustainability and material selection. The low weight and good stowability brought advantages in the weight/package size segment. The minimalist appearance also appealed and was rated as very practical by the jurors*. According to their verdict, the functional jacket is very suitable for running especially in spring and fall, when the weather is unstable and cool, and thus fulfills its intended use - a clear case for an ISPO Award 2022!
