Ronhill's Men's Stride Rainfall Jacket is a stripped-back, lightweight 2.5-layer waterproof running jacket. Aqualite fabric technology ensures breathability as well as waterproofing, with a simplified stretch panel hood providing optimal coverage and fit. A front chest pocket provides space for a key or phone, and reflective detailing helps keep you safe when you're road running from dusk till dark.
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.
