Weatherproof Running Jacket/Pullover Suggestions? (Read 932 times)

    Looking for a fall jacket or pullover to run in during fall's cold, rainy days. Something that will keep me mostly dry and warm, but breathe a bit as well. Anyone have a recommendation? Or even a recommendation against something that didn't work out for you? Thanks!


    Needs more cowbell!

      I have an older version of this jacket...it is excellent--breathes, but water beads off of it: Mizuno Rebel

        I have a neon yellow nike pullover that works pretty well, and is VERY visible to cars. Not sure exactly what it is called, though.

            May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your SPF30, may the rains fall soft upon your sweat-wicking hat, and until you hit the finish line may The Flying Spaghetti Monster hold you in the hollow of His Noodly Appendage.

              Nothing will really keep you dry while running in the rain. I have a DryRoad jacket that I bought from Road Runner about 5 years ago on the clearance rack for like $50. It's pretty bullet proof and I've used it down to sub-zero temps and in cold, hard rain (like 34F and raining/sleeting). That's pretty good and keeps me warm. You still get soaked though, both from sweat not really avaporating in the rain, and from water dripping down the neck hole etc. If it's fall temps (40-50F) and raining I usually just wear a yellow brooks vest to keep my core warm, and a hat with visor to keep the rain out of my eyes.

              Runners run.

                Any nylon jacket, even a hand-me-down or one from a thrift store, works good if you spray it with Camp Dry.
                  I've seen these - only jacket I've seen with an all mesh back - but water resistant in the front craft
