Perhaps it’s not until you experience this week on week that you fully prize how much-needed a waterproof running jacket is. Rest assured; it will become omnipresent in much of your training. So when do you need a waterproof jacket over a wind resistant jacket?
Many running jackets are “water resistant” but this often gets confused as being fully waterproof, when in fact, a water-resistant fabric is tightly woven but can only withstand a certain level of rain protection.
If you are out running for a short time and the rain is light, a water-resistant jacket is totally adequate. But if you run longer distances when the weather is changeable or live in places that experience heavy rain and want to stay completely dry, inside, and out, then a waterproof jacket is required.
A fully waterproof fabric provides a complete, impregnable block to repeated downpours of rain and snow, keeping you dry from the outside of the jacket.
To prevent the “bin-bag” effect from occurring (protection from the outside but overheating from the inside) Ronhill waterproof running jackets use materials with a membrane that balance waterproof and breathability to ensure both needs are met.
Ronhill waterproof running jackets feature an adjustable hood that can be made to fit securely with no bounce or excess movement, keeping your head protected and your vision clear when you are going at different speeds, directions, and over mixed terrain.
An added benefit of owning a waterproof jacket is that its fully windproof, so it can double up on the wet or windy days.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
