    Lightweight, yet tough

    Now you can turn back the clock, or show just how long you've stuck by your team! Lightweight, yet tough enough to take what gamers can dish out, this 100% Nylon Pittsburgh Pirates pullover jacket with 3/4 side zipper offers both style and substance. Features full or left chest team name application in popular tailsweep design.

    Can I say "but" in place of yet?

    Re: Lightweight, yet tough

    You can say "but" instead of "yet", but the shade of meanuing will be different: "yet" is used to emphasize that the jacket described possesses both characteristics: it is light and also tough. "But" just contrasts adjectives
