Need direction for Santa...
I am hoping that Santa might be kind enough to bring me a windprrof lightweight running jacket for the winter. At the moment I am wearing an old cycling one but it is not breathable and makes me sweat. A lot...
Can anyone recommend any in particular. I am looking to spend between 50 and 100 quid and would like something that is breathable but warm enough for the winter with a base layer underneath.
Montane Featherlight Marathon Jacket
My personal favourite
£50 - £100 is expensive for a windproof jacket. With a baselayer underneath I've found this to be great for winter - I live in the mountains so winter means snow, wind, horizontal rain/hail and any combination of these! The thing is, once you cut out the windchill you are not cold. Any windproof jacket will cut out the wind (obviously!) but I like this one because it's so lightweight, breathes brilliantly (it's made of pertex), and dries very quickly. Even for the most extreme winter fell runs, combined with a lightweight thermal bselayer, tights, gloves annd a buff I'm always warm enough. There are other colours available other than the purple shown......!
I love smartwool baselayers - can be pricey but I think "go outdoors" have them on offer at the moment .......... Smartwool
They have a great warmth to weight ratio, dry quick - though also hold their warmth when wet and don't get smelly after a winters hard running!! They're not the cheapest but I have some that are on their 3rd winter now.
