Ronhill Men's Vizion Windlite Jacket is a key item in any runners kit, that wants a breathable outer layer for changing weather conditions. Thanks to Ronhill it now features a new and improved water resistant finish, along with Activelite fabric to ensure you're in comfort during your run. A small chest pocket is great for securely holding your keys or some loose change whilst the reflective tape and L.E.D compatible points ensure that you're seen on low light condition runs, through the park and on the paths.
Ronhill are named after Dr Ron Hill MBE - Accrington lad, 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.
