Valuable in horrible weather,
This review is from: Ronhill Men's Vizion Windlite Jacket (Sports Apparel)The key feature of this jacket is wind resistance. It is light weight and (after one run) seems very effective. The weather today was variable, with some strong wind and some heavy showers, and the jacket made the run much more comfortable. I would still have enjoyed the run without the jacket, but not as much. The water resistance probably mattered less today as the layers under the jacket were saturated with sweat, though keeping rain away from the torso means keeping heat loss down.
There is a parallel between this type of jacket and running gloves. I ran for many years without gloves, buying a pair only last year: they make going out in cold weather much easier, and I wish I had bought some earlier.
I feel this jacket will pay for itself this winter because it will make me more willing to go out in the wind and rain: I wish I had bought one years ago.
