With wind and water resistance the Stride Windspeed Jacket for men will see you through every mile, of every day, of every season. It's also constructed with Ronhill's Activelite highly breathable woven fabric so sweat will pass through the jacket as opposed to sitting between layers.
The Windspeed has been thoughtfully designed as the lock down front zip has a chin guard, so when the weather is cold enough to pull the collar over your face, you'll stay comfy. Any runner knows that winter training involves running in the dark.. to combat this the jacket is L.E.D. compatible and also has reflective detailing. So when you're running along the pavement other people as well as cars should see you coming.
A zipped chest pocket has ample space for a phone or your bank card in case of emergencies. The jacket also features ergonomic micro elasticated cuffs and hem, which makes it even more amazing that the jacket weighs in at just 150g!
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.
