running 'and' cycling jacket?
If it isn’t raining when I go out, I take a Pertex Montane Featherlight Marathon jacket in my pack, or back pocket. Also works for running (which is what it’s designed for).
For proper deluges it’s a Gore Fusion GoreTex jacket on the bike. Way too hot for running though.Posted 4 years agogavtheoldskaterMember
narrowly avoiding running in the torrential rain yesterday, i’m thinking its time to pick up a showerproof breathable shell and also maybe a jersey.
thing is all my cycling kit needs renewing too, so would anyone have any recomendations for someting suitable for running and the bike?
up to about 50 on the jacket.Posted 4 years agoBadlyWiredDogSubscriber
TNF call it the Summit series, btw.
No they don’t, that’s their top-end mountaineering kit. The lightweight TNF stuff is called Flight.

What about a Howies Dyfi?
Am considering just such a thing for similar use although I’m guessing you may be thinking of something more waterproof.
Good price at Wiggle at the moment:Posted 4 years agoMary HingeMember
Pertex type stuff as above.
I picked up a Montaine Featherlight on sale somewhere for £30 and use that mainly on the bike, but occasionally for running.
I also picked up a Ronhill running jacket in a sale, similar Pertex windproof type thing. Great for running, but I also use it on Duathlons for the run/bike/run if it’s cold or wet.
They will both keep a bit of drizzle/light rain off, but do keep you warm when the water gets through.Posted 4 years agoajcMember
I find a gilet is all you need for running in the rain, maybe over a polyprop long sleeve if its cold. I have a montane jacket and that is too hot if its above freezing. The gilet just keeps the wind off your chest but allows plenty of air movement. This may not be the case if you like to run slowly, so never really warming up. Roadies arm warmers also work quite well as they are easy to take off so you don’t overheat and they still work when wet.Posted 4 years ago
