Running Jackets
…..More jackets, this week looking specifically at running jackets. Like the other two posts in this series, I’ve selected pieces that pull away from the pack, cleverly designed to be highly fit for purpose, incorporating the best technical fabrics whilst also paying attention to style. I particularly like Aether’s Nomad Jacket for it’s understated simplicity and versatility and also favour ashmei’s tailored design and use of merino.

Of course, you could use the jackets already featured in the previous posts, great investment pieces for 3in1 general active wear, cycling and running. The Rapha Classic Softshell and Mission Workshop’s Orion Jacket plus Outlier’s OG FreeShell Jacket would work well.
