I don't think there's any such thing as fully waterproof clothing [though I do have waterproof boots]. I agree with Pilotlight, as long as I'm warm it doesn't matter how wet I get. Windproof is key :-)

Well, it was pouring down yesterday until about 5 minutes before I stepped out the door. Decided not to take off the jacket as I expected some rain within the next 2 and a half hours. It stayed bone dry, but windy! Towards the end of my run, water (sweat) was dripping out from inside my sleeves, having accumulated by my elbows ! Not pleasant, but warm at least.

As for fully waterproof clothing, I have Berghaus Paclite jacket and bottoms for walking... never let the rain in yet, but not ideal for running in...

Muddle, I couldn't be bothered to keep taking it off and putting it back on to tell the truth. Was fairly windy, even when the sun did come out, and I figured I would get slightly cold as the wind whipped across the sweat on my back! Can't win either way

Update - having just completed the Trans Britain Ultra in some very wet weather (70mph driving rain atop Pen-y-Ghent one day) I can categorically state that the Montane Minimus is fully waterproof and, as someone who hates wearing too much clothing due to overheating, it is a joy to run in.

I'm after a running top, light in weight, waterproof, that can be folded up and take next to no spa...
