Waterproof, windproof, incredibly durable and surprisingly light. Expensive, but an excellent piece of kit.
Patagonia Nano Air Vest
A smart, soft and well-insulated number. If you choose one of the less vibrant colours you could wear this one in the pub.
Every Second Counts Sprint Jacket
A solid entry from this new sportswear brand. Wind-resistant, breathable and it wicks well.
£219, Every Second Counts (available from December 15th)
Montane Fireball Verso Pull-on
Good weatherproofing, thermal and breathable. Handy details include anti-odour material and thumbholes.
Pearl Izumi Fly Softshell Run Hoody
A slim fit, but the fabric is stretchy and windproof. There are also internal mitts and a hood that doesn’t block your view.
Asics Running Jacket
Durable, extremely weatherproof, reflective and rip-resistant, this is a good investment. A little heavy so keep it for the worst weather.
Fast-wicking, quick-drying, thermal, ventilated, reflective, warm and it moves nicely with your body – this jacket has the lot.
Nike Shield Flash Max Jacket
Formidably weather-resistant, while the hundreds of coloured dots that make up the design are reflective. Its peaked hood works well too.
Berghaus Hypertherm Race Smock
A reversible jacket providing wind protection on one side and better cooling and breathability on the other. Feels light and airy.
