Cold Weather Running Jacket


Posted by Edward A.

I am looking for recommendations on a cold weather jacket for running.

I normally don't run with a jacket and so I'm not sure what to look for.  Water resistant?  Light weight?  reflectors? 

Any assistance on brands or quality would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Most runners use layers during cold weather instead of a single jacket. I use a thin nylon shell to break the wind and provide protection against rain or snow. Under the shell I wear layers of old shirts. By wearing several layers of shirts, I can adjust the number of layers to be appropriate for the temperature during my runs.
