One of the essentials for wet and cold weather is a waterproof running jacket. If you look after it, this piece of kit should last you a few years, so it's worth a bit of extra thought. That's why we've selected 3 best buys from our latest range.

Men's OMM Kamleika Waterproof Running Jacket

OMM Kamleika Jacket

The newest version of the legendary OMM jacket has landed! This extremely light outer layer has improved durability & waterproofing and less flapping in the wind.

OMM jackets are well-known for their stretchy materials. It is their moisture-wicking four-way stretch Gelanots Fabric that moulds to your body in a way that other materials would not. The new version introduces a nylon outer layer, which immensely improves durability without sacrificing breathability.

The Kamleika Jacket feels much softer compared to other jackets on the market. It’s like a fully waterproof softshell with rating 20,000 HH and a breathability level of 20,000 g/m2. You can easily forget that you are wearing it, as it is so light. 

  • It is also because of this stretch fit that the air volume inside the jacket can be reduced, making it an even better and virtually noiseless fit.
  • It would be also great for longer races in winter, as you can ventilate with the YKK zip and avoid overheating.
  • You can store gloves or other essentials in two huge hand pockets.
  • The hood is adjustable and has a peak.
  • Reflectivity features on the front back and the sleeves.

All these features make it a great option for running basically any distance on any terrain, while needing protection against rain and wind.

Men's Pressio Ecotect 3L Jacket

Pressio Ecotect 3L Jacket

This jacket is the very first fully wateproof jacket made from recycled fabric in the Pressio apparel range.

Pressio make their high-tech products with sustainability and ethical trading in mind. They apply their ecological principles from the start of the supply chain (yarn), to knitting mills, production houses and also in packing and shipping. This piece is made 100% from recycled materials. 

The hood shape fits perfectly as it is, even without any adjustment. But if you need to change the shape slightly, you can pull the elasticated band on the hood and secure it. It has two side pockets which are fully taped and waterproof. In the right pocket, there is a lining to keep your keys and cards in place, preventing from causing any damage to the fabric.

The overall fit is close to the body in order to keep you warm. The fabric has a super soft and flexible feel without creating a swooshing noise. The waterproofing is 20K with 15K moisture permeability, keeping it breathable. It comes up small so you might need to size up. 

What we especially love about this jacket is its durability; it lasts for years and still provides full protection. The fabric is strong and doesn't wear down easily in off-road conditions. It's just a very well-made garment.
