Imagine yourself hitting the meticulously maintained trail networks of Vancouver Island in summer, with the North Pacific whistling at your ear and the faintest smell of rain in the air. Feels like you will need our beautifully crafted Lite Jacket for such chilly, blustery days. The water-repellent, highly windproof front fabric panel will see you good for any light showers, while the high-stretch, perforated rear fabric panel will regulate your body temperature to ensure you do not overheat.
We have taken an awful lot of care in the design and construction of the Lite Jacket and it pays off in some style. As Runner’s World UK wrote: “This is a genuine running jacket, not just a jacket you can run in.” The fit is designed for performance, so expect no flapping. On the move, the fabric adjusts to your body contours, thanks to the ultra-stretch rear panel. Elasticated cuffs and silicon grip blocks on the inside of the hem keep everything in place. To ensure you stay safe and seen, the outside of the hem is reflective.
Weighing in at just 158g, the Lite Jacket comes into its own on warmer runs. Should you need to take it off and stow, it packs down to next to nothing into its own bag and will either slip into a back-pack or into a short or jersey pocket.
ashmei Ambassador Owain Williams adds: “The Lite Jacket is what I call a “what if” jacket. What if it’s going to rain, what if it doesn’t? This piece covers every eventuality. If you do feel like you want to take it off while running, you can either tie it around your waist – or my favourite option – pack it down into its own bag and carry it. It is so small and light you won’t even notice it!”
