Al­though the most ex­pen­sive on test, vis­ually the Weather Jacket from On Run­ning in­stantly im­presses the most. The grey and white colour scheme gives it a stylish and min­i­mal­ist fin­ish, while the light weight and added ven­ti­la­tion pro­vides a sec­ond-skin feeling. But the pay­off is that there are ar­eas of the jacket that are thicker, like the panel lead­ing up to the neck, which rubbed dur­ing our runs and seemed re­dun­dant to the over­all per­for­mance of the jacket. The size small felt a lit­tle on the snug side and pulled across the back for us, so we’d sug­gest go­ing a size up. The hood is easy to ad­just but did loosen dur­ing the test, yet the flex­i­ble peak does im­prove vis­i­bil­ity on wet runs. We were pro­tected in a light shower but did no­tice some wa­ter ingress in heav­ier show­ers. The jacket folds neatly and stores eas­ily within the only pocket, again cut­ting down on bulk in the kit bag.
