My cheapo Karrimor one managed to destroy its zip yesterday, and now I have nothing rain repellant/waterproof to run in.
Any recommendations before I buy a new jacket? Something light and breathable, and that won't be too hot as I get vvvv hot running. Doesn't need to be uber waterproof, but deal with days like yesterday when I was 3km from home and the heavens opened.
I have a Ronhill one which was cheap n cheerful. It's not the most attractive in the world - high viz stripes going through it - but it keeps you dry ish and best of all dries in a flash so I always bung it in the washing machine and then it comes out and is dry really quick. I don't really wear it for real warmth more to keep the wind out and the rain a bit and it ties light as feather round my waist if i don't want it.
I have the ronhill vision storm one...really windproof and keeps me dry too. Don't get too hot/sweaty either. I also love that it comes with a flashing light that attaches to the back [ smile] Also love that it is very fitted so that if I'm racing on freezing days I can wear my vest and number over it! Bit more pricy than some others but I love it.
