There is no need to walk on the treadmill during running weather. If you have the right kit for the weather, running outdoors in the wind and rain can still be enjoyable, even refreshing, when the heat wave has left your run and tracks behind. A good running jacket is an essential part of any kit, and if you find one that you really love, it can even be a great incentive to go out and walk in bad weather.
What You Should Look For in a Running Jacket  Ideally, you want to keep out wind and rain without getting too hot and bothering in your jacket. Waterproof (shower-proof) jackets keep a bit of drizzle at bay, while a fully waterproof jacket keeps you dry but less breathable.
When you buy a jacket, you pay more for the latest technical fabrics that keep you dry and avoid overheating. Top quality jackets include flat, sealed seams, breathable panels, waterproof zippers, etc.
A hood can be useful ̵
When talking about roads, one should stay visible in low light conditions. Decide for something with reflective elements, and even eye-catching colors and patterns will help you to be seen from afar by traffic.
We also consider zip pockets essential – nobody wants to leave their cell phones at home, right? – So make sure the jacket of your choice is big enough.
After all, it's important to choose a running jacket to avoid unnecessary rustling and give you maximum freedom of movement. Start your search with our top offers.
