GORE-TEX Running Jackets
Running solo is great, but truly amazing things can happen when we run with others. For 50 years we’ve been pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in running gear, and our friends at Mountain Equipment have been obsessively crafting protective clothing for the world’s most extreme environments. Everything we know about running, and all Mountain Equipment know about protection, has been carefully and collaboratively designed into our new Tech GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ jacket – the ultimate waterproof and breathable running outer layer. ...

GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ is a game-changer. It’s incredibly lightweight, quick-drying and breathable, but this doesn’t come at the expense of protection. Crucially – the membrane sits on the outside of the fabric, so even the heaviest of rain simply beads off. So no face fabric to ‘wet out’, add bulk and decrease breathability. Serious innovation providing serious mile-after-mile comfort, even in serious weather.
Our founder, Dr. Ron Hill, helped pioneer the use of GORE-TEX in running jackets in the 80s, so we’re more than happy to be continuing to work at the cutting-edge to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Feedback from our unstoppable tester team has helped to get the fit of our GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ jacket just right – allowing optimum freedom of movement. When the storm really comes in, the adjustable hood will help to keep you going, and one simple, secure pocket will keep your essentials safe.Read less

“Get going. Get up and walk if you have to, but finish the damned race.”
Words spoken by our inspirational founder and one of Britain’s world class athletes Dr. Ron Hill M.B.E. Ron was a runner, an innovator and a pioneer and strived to not only compete at the elite end of sport but create new apparel and improve clothing for all runners.
Ron’s dedication to the sport is epitomised in his world record run streak of 19,032 days. That’s running every day for 52 years and 39 days. A feat that is unlikely to ever be matched
