So the weather has been pretty darn awful at the moment, we are all wishing the cold weather away as soon as possible, but in the meantime the Asics Lite-Show Winter Jacket is here to keep us snug on our long cold runs and protect us from the wind and hail.
This jacket seems heavy when you first pick it up, but thats not the case when you pop it on. It feels snug with the soft shell material and the quality is excellent.
Living in N.Ireland I have faced wind, hail, rain and snow this winter and this jacket has delivered in all the conditions. It has repelled the cold and wet conditions while keeping me warm but not sweaty at all.
I would be fussy about wearing jackets on long runs as they tend to get sweaty inside, but this jacket does what it say on the tin! "the thermal properties in the side panels regulate your body temperature " - It really does, I've stayed dry and comfortable wearing the jacket, so much so that I can wear the jacket on multiple runs before I need to wash it.
This jacket is great for evening runs as the lite-show print is reflective when light hits it keeping you visible.
