Weatherproof running jacket (Read 185 times)

    You are an ass.

     

    Not related to jackets, but there was no 30s weather with constant rain during Boston 2015 - I ran it, so, I know. There was an occasional rain, there was some very strong wind at some parts of the course, it felt pretty cold at the finish because of runners' shirts were wet and it was relatively windy, but the temps were still in the mid 40s...

              Back to jackets:

               

              I typically don't like how stifling truly waterproof garments are, BUT check out Irish or UK shops and brands for waterproof jackets.  They are often mandated gear in IRL/UK open mountain races.

              Craghoppers, helly hansen, RAB come to mind.

                    Salomon Bonatti Pro here.  Recent purchase.  Absolutely love it. Bit pricey though.

                        I saw an excellent rain jacket at Decathlon Sports last week (Emeryville CA). Like this one, but had white-ish translucent fabric.

                        If you're not familiar with Decathlon sports, they are like Trader Joe's  REI but for almost all activities. They have in-house designers for products, and sell very few things not things that are not their brand (I saw some Coleman thing in the camping section). I'm impressed with the materials and features, rivaling or exceeding the "high end" products available from "high end" companies, but for half the price or less.

                          original link I posted is no longer available. It's now the New Venture TWO. Unsure what they changed. I'd still buy it. Everything int he description sounds like it's the same as the one I own. Still $100. Still uninsulated.

                          Many of us aren't sure what the hell point you are trying to make and no matter how we guess, it always seems to be something else. Which usually means a person is doing it on purpose.
