Our versatile all-rounder, the Ultimate Softshell Jacket is the one jacket you should own. Waterproof, windproof front and shoulder fabric protects you from the elements, while the blended Merino rear provides the thermo-regulation required.
Anyone who runs from Autumn through to Spring understands this means a fine balance of protection from the elements without overheating and running in a sweat soaked jacket because it can’t cope with the heat generated by typical runners.
The Ultimate Softshell Jacket tackles this balance head on by using super breathable, lightweight fabrics that protect you from the worst of the weather combined with a rear merino wool blend that keeps you warm but allows enough heat to escape to stop you overheating and therefore sweating.
Every detail of this jacket has been considered in length by our design team from the stretch, weight and performance of the materials through to the hidden hand mitts built into the cuffs incase the temperatures change and you forget your gloves.
A word from founder, Stuart: “My go to jacket. If it’s jacket weather and you know you may be in for a light dowsing of rain – but not a downpour – then this is it for me. The Merino panels on the back of the jacket and sleeves ensure optimal interior climate regulation to keep me cool while the softshell elements keep my core warm and comfortable. The hidden mitts are perfect for mid winter long runs, especially running along the ridgeway in the Chilterns where temperatures and exposure to the elements can be changeable.
