Shooting photos can be a great way to get outside, explore new neighborhoods and get a much-needed breath of fresh air. And while all you really need to do that is a smartphone these days, the experience is much improved and elevated with the right combination of gear. Take for instance Goldwin's Rip-stop Light Jacket, the perfect packable layer for use in the event of a sudden rainstorm. Or Fuji's X-E4 camera, which will put your mediocre smartphone photos to shame. The point is, the right gear makes taking photos a more enjoyable endeavor, and in some cases, can even yield better results.

No matter what activity you're undertaking this spring, if it involves being outdoors, you should have Goldwin's Rip-stop Light Jacket in your kit. Spring weather is unpredictable, and there is nothing worse than being caught out when a thunderstorm rolls through. This jacket is not only lightweight, but it easily packs down into its own hood for easy storage in a pack or camera bag. It's made from a water-repellent 20-denier recycled polyester, which makes it perfect for sudden weather changes while still being lightweight and durable. And if you're worried about getting hot while wearing it, don't be. The zippered front mesh pockets function as vents, and are made from a silver blended material that's naturally antibacterial and cuts down on odor. But beyond just technical prowess, the Rip-stop Light Jacket also offers a sleek and streamlined look that's just as at home in the city as it is in the mountains.
