OMM Waterproof running jacket review: soft shell Kamleika race jacket

Reviewers say:

Good: Soft shell material reduces running rustle + good stretchable material. Excellent waterproofing, wind resistance and breathability; taped seams and waterproof zips. Light weight material enables easy layering: can be used in very cold conditions with just a base layer. Equally, breathability performs well in warmer conditions. Hood and fastening perfect for most directions of driving winds and rain – even with peak underneath. When rolled-down, provides good neck insulation when zipped to top. Effective wrist and waistband fasteners/ drawcords. Overall slimmer fitting good for race conditions (although take care with sizing if you’re a larger runner). Good reflectives.

Bad: Pocket zips on latest season version a bit difficult to handle when tired. Multiple pockets on earlier versions reduced to two, although now external so improved waterproofing for main body. Concerns about rubbing of outer face of material if carrying heavier pack over longer distances.

Price from: £129
