DRY JAN – TECHNICAL GEAR FOR RUNNING IN THE RAIN

Whatever your take on dry jan and whether it’s worth it, we know it’s worth staying dry when you’re out running! The Sports Room specialises in running and technical run gear for all seasons. Take a look at what’s in our window this Jan 21..

ADIDAS AGRAVIC RAIN JACKET

Ideal for trail running, or any running, this is a lightweight, waterproof, packable jacket designed to keep you dry on the move, without weighing you. Pack this jacket away into its own pocket and take it with you so you’re always prepared for that downpour. Inevitable in Ireland! This jacket is windproof, water vapour permeable (so nice and breathable) and waterproof. The four way stretchy material moves with you as you run. The fitted hood, cuffs and hem also work well to keep the rain out.

Tips
This jacket is a little on the small side, so we’d recommend you go a size up. Don’t use fabric softener when you wash it but a spin in the tumble dryer will help reactivate the water-proofness.

The adidas Agravic Rain Jacket is available at The Sports Room for both men and women.

INOV-8 STORMSHELL FULL ZIP JACKET

The Inov-8 Stormshell men’s running jacket is designed for lightweight racing and intense training runs in wet conditions. It is lightweight and waterproof with a rating of 20,000 HH – this means it is rainproof and waterproof under high pressure. (More info on waterproof ratings). With taped seams and a full length zip this hooded waterproof running jacket now boasts a super-soft Pertex Shield fabric for increased comfort. It packs away small into its own pocket, making it easy and lightweight to carry. This jacket is perfect for those trail races where a jacket is an essential part of your kit.
