I bought one last week from Decathlon for the massive sum of £12. I didn't want to spend too much cos I only wanted something very light weight for days like today when it's a bit on the cool side but doesn't warrant anything too thick. Anyway I wore it for the first time on a run this afternoon and it was perfect.........and has a zipped pocket on both sides.
Great thanks Saffy. I'm like you, don't want to spend too much. I used to have a nike zip up jacket that was lycra and so comfy but you just don't seem to be able to get them anymore.
Will have a look at Decathlon thanks,
Thanks Bikermouse, I'll have a look now!
Lidl?! Well I'd never think of looking there, will take a look next week thanks!
I bought a running jacket from Lidl last year, and found it just made me totally sweaty . I ended up just wearing it when out running in the icy snowy depths of this winter!
On recommendation I got this jacket from Wiggle nice & light weight, but even on cold days it kept my body warm without being sweaty.
I bought one last year from Pro-Direct Running. Nice and lightweight plus the arms zip off. Not a bad price either at £20 and available in a few colours. (although the large "Do Running" on the back is a bit off putting)
Thanks Black and Tabby, I was ideally looking for a breathable one but I suppose for £9 i couldn't expect perfection! The link is a gilet, is that what you got?
Hi CK44, i was looking at those on pro-direct actually, are they comfortable? Also, how did you find the sizing of them, I'm kind of in between sizes so wouldn't know whether to go for smaller or larger!
I know what you mean about the rustling, a bit annoying!
The pro-direct running one that CK44 suggested looks good actually as it has rip off sleeves, just typical they don't have my size in the colour I liked though...the search continues!
Elizabeth - I have got size M and I would say I am a typical size 12.
In reply to your message they are comofrtable (and don't make a rustly sound !!). Just to warn you I wore it last night in very heavy rain, and my t-shirt (& bra) ended up damp - but I didn't feel cold.
So I think they are more showerproof than rainproof !! but again for the price good value !
Thanks CK44, I've signed up for an email when the colour I like comes back in stock in my size!
