Product Review: Ronhill Tech Gore-Tex Running Jacket.


The ultimate waterproof and breathable running jacket. GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ is a game-changer.


Running solo is great, but truly amazing things can happen when we run with others. For 50 years Ronhill have been pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in running gear, and their friends at Mountain Equipment have been obsessively crafting protective clothing for the world’s most extreme environments.


Matt has been testing out the Tech Gore-Tex Running Jacket for a while now. Here's what he thinks:



Everything Ronhill know about running, and all Mountain Equipment know about protection, has been carefully and collaboratively designed into their latest Tech GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ jacket – the ultimate waterproof and breathable running outer layer, with new linen look finish.


GORE-TEX SHAKEDRY™ is a game-changer. It’s incredibly lightweight, quick-drying and breathable, but this doesn’t come at the expense of protection. Crucially – the membrane sits on the outside of the fabric, so even the heaviest of rain simply beads off. So no face fabric to ‘wet out’, add bulk and decrease breathability.


Serious innovation providing serious mile-after-mile comfort, even in serious weather. Dr. Ron Hill, helped pioneer the use of GORE-TEX in running jackets in the 80s, and this is the latest version. When the storm really comes in, the adjustable hood will help to keep you going, and one simple, secure pocket will keep your essentials safe.
