I have recently been caught in a few downpours (who would think that in January in Scotland?) and my currently "windcheaters" are clearly not up to the job.
Can anyone recommend a decent mens jacket that will keep me dry from the weather?
I started using my new Nike Vapor jacket this week.
Its good. Keeps the water out enough, has a hood (Though I haven't used it) though there isn't much reflectivity.
I've not tried it on a quick run yet where I'm likely to sweat more to really test the ventilation, but on the Easy and Steady run I've done this week I didn't overheat.
cheers - not bothered about branding rather it works and not keen on hoods (run in a baseball cap if raining). I'm quite sweaty so the ventilation is an issue (dont mind getting wet from hard work but not so much the cold rain!)
You can't go wrong with the Mountain Hardwear Effusion jacket or OMM Kamleika. Both come with hoods but have excellent breathability so you don't get sweaty inside. I've worn the Effusion for hours in a storm and didn't get wet underneath.
