Autumn is here and the temperature is already decidedly chilly, so we've compiled a great selection of apparel to suit your needs. Fold away jackets will keep you dry, lightweight layers protect against the wind and there's cosy softshell creations for when conditions get more severe. Buying a running jacket created specifically for women means the design will be tailored to your shape, with a closer fit and far more flattering shape.

Before buying a jacket consider what you need. If you run at night look out for reflective strips, branding or LED compatibility to help keep you safe. If rain is your nemesis go for a jacket with waterproof protection and if you're fashion-conscious, opt for the plum and merlot shades dominant this winter. With the jackets we've chosen, you can tick all your functionality boxes without compromising on style.

I can find the Salomon Fast III jacket but not in the cool colour in the gallery. I guess that colour is only direct from the manufacturer.
