Hi All,
What can I wear to run in the rain? Is there some kind of coat/top that repels water but doesn't make you extra sweaty/like you are wrapped in clingfilm?

In milder weather I just wear close fitting clothes that don't get uncomfortable.

I have a light shower resistant hoodie type top that I wear in cooler conditions. The more the water is kept out, the more the sweat is kept in.

A cap is useful for keeping rain out of your eyes.

I will set off out in a light showerproof running jacket- but end up taking it off halfway round.

Am going to get wet anyway so don't much care by then.

But yes to a baseball cap. It keeps the rain from hurting your eyes.

If it's warm then just normal non waterproof clothes, breathable stuff so it dries off if the rain stops.

If it's cooler then a windproof is good, you get wet, but not sweaty and dry off quicker if it fairs up

If it's cold the I have a buffalo techlite which is mint. I wear a light breathable t shirt under it
