Windproof Running Jackets

If you are not going to run in the rain, and with the first drops you usually head home, then you could even go for a cheaper option. A windproof running jacket is not as costly as a waterproof one. So you will save some money and still be protected from wind, and light rain will get repelled from the fabric.
