Hi,

Can anyone suggest a good jacket for winter marathon training. Ideally waterproof, windproof and breathable.

Plenty out there but just wondering if anyone has a particular one they swear by.

 Thanks

You can't buy such a wondrous garment. Breathable and waterproof cant be had for running.

What Rick says... they haven't invented a fabric that is breathable enough to stop a runner ending up soggy inside their jacket. I wear a long sleeve thermal top and a windproof gillet. If it rains I get wet.

Totaly agree - you can not stay dry so the important thing is to stay warm. I usually just go for a thermal HH top and a windproof over the top to keep the chill off.

I thought I was being to demanding. Nevermind, thanks for the suggestions. Thermals and windproof it is then.
