The Fortify is for the pavement-pounders who aren’t afraid of a little rain - or a lot of rain. Granting full waterproof and windproof protection, this functional piece is the ultimate elemental shield. This high spec Japanese fabric uses a very lightweight 15 denier polyamide face with stretch combined with a high performance hydrophilic laminate which ensures excellent breathability.
Reflective strips on the front and back of the jacket ensure that drivers know where you are, and the fully adjustable hood gives an unobstructed view whilst keeping rain out. The front chest pocket is the place to stash a pair of merino gloves for when your hands turn icy, and an additional internal fob pocket features a hook to keep your door key safe.
More about this brand
Ronhill are named after Dr Ron Hill MBE - scientist, world record breaker and runner. But not just any runner; Ron was a serious runner. And when you’re clocking the kind of mileage he was (in excess of 100 miles a week) you start to notice where your gear is letting you down - and for Ron it was clothing. In the 1960s there was nothing. Just cotton shorts that weighed a tonne when wet.
No waterproofs, no lightweight shoes, no vents. So Ron took matter into his own hands and founded Ronhill. Drawing on years of experience, Ron pioneered simple but revolutionary new innovations in sports apparel – like the shorts with a side split and the development of new, moisture wicking textiles. Today’s industry standards in performance apparel were Ronhill world firsts. And that’s why they’re more than just a sports fashion brand; they’re a running institution.
