Amazing jacket. Haven't worn it out yet but looks great quality. I'm a UK 12 and bought a small as I'll be using it as a running jacket so no layers underneath- perfect fit. If I was going to wear layers id want a bigger size. Feels really comfy on and packs down nice and small so great for carrying. Very pleased!!

Cool Elastic Band Around The Waist

price from

Our Opinion:

If you are looking for a rain jacket with great elasticity around the waist, we recommend getting this one for you. There is a roomy pocket to store your lovely items tidy and neat. Made of nice and thick material, works well to shush away the rain and wind. It will prevent your body from getting shiver.

Promising Review:

Really smart running jacket. Fits snugly with an elasticated band around the waist which I wondered whether would be comfy or feel restrictive, but actually feels like it holds everything in place. Top pocket big enough for my phone and keys. Soft fabric, a bit like scuba fabric on the outside and slightly brushed on the inside which promises cosiness on cold morning runs. Nice reflective detail on the back. Very happy with this jacket and looking forward to using it when the autumn and winter arrive. Good quality for a reasonable price.

Looks Great and Perform Perfectly Well

price from
£25.00
Our Opinion:

It is quite and won't make an annoying sound when you run. It is breathable and waterproof, so you won't feel like being hot by the heat trapped within your jacket. This jacket quite shiny, suitable for you who loves something with a bright and shining thing. Perfect for cycling, biking, and running.

Promising Review:

Bought this to run in as I was previously using a heavier/thicker hoody which was too bulky and too warm. This jacket protects excellently against wind-chill and adds a comfortable layer of heat without being too much. The ample vents allow plenty of breathing and it all packs away into an easy to carry bag with an attached clip if you need to take it off. Looks great and performs perfectly.

Our Opinion:

This has a highly reflective fabric to make you more visible in the dark. When you go running around at night, sometimes it hard to be seen. By wearing this jacket, it will prevent any harm coming to your way. You can be seen by others instantly and happy running.

Promising Review:

It's a good jacket but I am not convinced it's is breathable. It does have some vents that allow airflow and is definitely wind and water proof. I am pleased with the fit and comfort when running and it certainly helps cars see you when running at night.

Our Opinion:

You will never expect the lightness of this jacket. This is an ultrathin jacket. Very easy to pack. You can fold it to your tiny little pouch and put it on your backpack. There are two roomy pockets for your convenience to bring along your stuff such as your fancy mp3 player, etc.

Promising Review:

Light weight however it does the job well, fitting is great and the zipper quality is fantastic. I wanted this as we get alot of rain here in the north west but I didn't want anything heavier as I'm ok with body heat. Comes with a large hood not just to cover the head but also bring it to the front of the face. Nice material and the cuffs have a good quality elastic arount it to keep the inside dry.

price from

Our Opinion:

Thin and feel as if you are not wearing a jacket is the goal of this Nike jacket. You can enjoy your trail without being occupied by a wet jacket. This is waterproof, powerful enough to block the wind coming in your way. It is also breathable, prevents getting soak inside.

Promising Review:

I bought this when it was priced £14.99. I was going to buy another because I liked it so much, but now it has doubled to £29.99. It’s been a great top on windy days and through the odd shower whilst running and cycling. Highly recommended it as a throw-on for training in suspect weather. Obviously great value for money at £15, but now it’s more expensive.

Running is the art of against the wind. Your rain jacket must have decent work to block wind from ruining your running routine. As for this jacket, it does a good job, super windproof. Light in weight, easy to pack, and easy to clean are the other promising features of this rain jacket.

Promising Review:

I was dubious, but this thing is amazing!! It’s ridiculously wind and rain proof!!! Just wore it for a 100km ultra marathon and it’s really protected me from 40mph winds and storm showers. Was dry as a bone underneath. Don’t know how they’ve done it, but fair play! Would highly recommend.
