Why a new running jacket?
Well, having signed up for my first ever mountain marathon (Glencoe Marathon), later this year, it was stated in the race regulations that I’d need a ‘McDaddy’ of a jacket to tick all the boxes – that of the regulations and what I’d be after as well – mainly water/windproof, lightweight, large map pockets, breathable, – ‘pit zips a must’ AAAAAAAAND look good! 🙂
After a lot of research and erring ‘n’ umming – this was the one for me…
As you can see with some rather ‘fortunate’ gale force weather that we had encountered of late, my running partner and I have tested it to the max ! ;o)
