Gents. I know there is a wealth of info on google, and I am looking, plus visiting shops. But I would be grateful for any comments/opinions on wet-weather running kit by people who have used the stuff. What they tell you in the shop isn't always 100% as I have found out in the past. I have used a light top, made from a parachute for many years now but it is a bit battered. No it doesn't keep the rain out, but it keeps the wind off and me warm(ish) and has proved practical, especially as I can just tie it round me waist and it is really light. In really inclement weather I do have heavier jackets, but I find that I don't get the sensation of being able to breathe, I sweat a lot and in short run less and not as well as usual. What I would like to find is a light-weight top that allows me the sensation of breathing and doesn't asphixiate. Trousers as well as I dislike lycra, though I do wear it. I am lucky here as when the sun is out I can use shorts, but it can get quite parky at times necesitating leggings. What's good and on the market? Thanks for any advice.
