    I run with a Pertex shell rather than a water proof shell. Don’t mind getting wet, but it keeps the wind off. Never found a waterproof which could breath enough to cope with running.

    Most of my cycling kit is from the fast nd light ranges of outdoor gear manufacturers, cos it’s what gets discounted. It’s good kit usually.

    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.

    What footflaps says really. If its not cold I would just wear maybe a helly which doesnt go baggy when its soaking wet.

    If its raining you will get wet right through. staying warm is the trick.

    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.

    TNF call it the Summit series, btw. They make some great tops out of Apex fabric, or at least they did.

    Just bought a running jacket this weekend, and there’s no way I’d use it on the bike – it’s much too flimsy.

    No they don’t, that’s their top-end mountaineering kit. The lightweight TNF stuff is called Flight.

    Edit: please don’t take this as an invitation to one of your endless discussions. It’s just intended as a friendly factual correction for those who might find it useful. Honest.

    Would recommend the lightweight Vulpine cotton harrington. (Edit, just re-read your post and realise it’s above the price range)

    Ah yes you are right, sorry.

    Oh come off it, that’s hardly debatable!

    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:

    Get Montane Velo or similar (pertex material). There are plenty of places doing them cheap. Note: while they are windproof expect to get wet, as the rain goes straight through, but I’ve still remained warm as they keep the wind out in all but the strongest gales.

    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.

    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.

    went with a montane singletrack jacet and montane oryx layer, both hugely reduced on sportsshoes.com with another 15% off voucher and 10% cashbak (yeah right, like they ever pay on that) on topcashback.
