Whether you are new to running or have been obsessed with running for years you will appreciate the benefits of a wind resistant jacket. Perfect for most days, when it’s not raining, a wind resistant jacket will be the most comfortable option for some protection from wind chills and a light drizzle.
This is because the breathability is not impeded by a waterproof laminate found on waterproof jackets which need to be more robust to keep the rain out. Through experience and research Ronhill know that the ideal wind resistant jacket has an air permeability of around 5.
Air permeability measures how wind resistant any fabric is with a score of 0 being totally windproof, whilst a result of around 5 means that the trade-off between wind resistance and breathability is at the ideal level for runners. The Windspeed Jacket has charcoal reflectivity front and back, and graphics to sleeve hem.
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.
