I am trying very hard to sit on my hands and not buy the ladies version of one of these:

I have a lovely Inov-8 like Sharkie's, which is lovely to run in and the wored hood works really well - but it's a bit small for me at the moment

For cheap end, Mountain Warehouse zips always break for me, but I heart Decathlon esp as they do large sizes.

Thanks for the input everyone.

I ordered a shakedry but the shape was all wrong for me.. Incredible how light it was though! That's being returned.

After the suggestions of the other waterproof (pertex) I have ordered (and absolutely love) a Montane Minimus. There's plenty of room underneath for a base layer or two, the hood has a wire and tucks away into itself, all the pockets are watertight and it's a nice colour. I'm not a speed demon so although a bit heavier it's fine.

I can't vouch for its complete waterproofness as, typically, it hasn't rained on a running shift since I bloody received it! It's comfortable though so fingers crossed!

Got something to say?
