      I don't make a point of running in rainy weather, but every so often will be in it. We had record rainfall this year in Northern Kentucky. I love this jacket because it is the most like my old RRS "Activent" jacket I have been wearing for a long time. It is water resistant and has worked very well for me. I like the velcro closures at the wrist and in front, also the zipped vents on the inside of the arms. I can tell alot of thought went into the design of this jacket, and at sixty three years old feel like I deserve a "Cadillac" jacket at this time.

        Comments about R-Gear Mens Road Runner Sports Best Defense GORE-TEX Outerwear Jackets:

        I bought this jacket because I wanted Gore Tex for breathable protection in wind and rain, but with the specialized fit and ventilation needed for running. It delivered on all fronts. I didn't think it looked very stylish in the photo, but I was pleasantly surprise to see that it looks much more stylish in person. In fact, it looks so good I wear it around town too, which I hadn't planned to do when I ordered it. I'm bigger than many runners - 6'3 200 - and it fit me nicely, with enough room for a fleece layer underneath, but not too baggy when not wearing an underlayer. I wouldn't mind having slightly longer sleeves to cover my hands when cold, but the sleeves are perfect for normal purposes, and gloves make more sense anyway. I don't love paying this much for a jacket, but it's the best one of it's type that I've ever owned.

          This jacket was easy to layer underneath. It didn't restrict my motion when running, even during fast intervals on the track. In weather like we've seen this winter, you need an amazing running jacket that will withstand the rain, snow, wind, and bitter cold. This jacket is the best i have ever tried.

            Gave this to my husband, and he rain in pouring rain and stayed totally dry. Somone commented that pockets were too small, but we don't see anything wrong with pockets. Sleeves are too long for my husband, but can be adjusted with velcro, although having an elastic band at wrist might be easier.

            Used the product on wet / snowy runs for past two seasons. Zipper no longer functions at all. RRS says two years is too long for any remediation. Bottom line: a lot of money for a jacket that lasts two seasons.

              Previous model had an inside "Big" zippered pocket for IPod / IPhone , it is now gone---Bad Idea! Current jacket now only has a small outside pocket with zipper for your cell phone. The pocket is too small to easily get your phone in & out, try that with gloves.on--forget about it! On the inside there is a hole to run a cord for ear phones, but try finding the hole in the outside pocket to run your cord through, so the cord goes to the inside ear phone well mark hole. It is next to impossible to find it. RR marketing & manufacturing did a horrible job of eliminating the inside big pocket and made it so hard to use the out side pocket . I love the jacket overall, but I am a big music listener, if you don't listen to music or need a cell phone, this jacket is great.

                This is a great jacket for cold weather. I ran with it on Christmas Day in 5 degrees in the Minneapolis area with a polypropylene top, a hoodie sweatshirt and this jacket, and was very comfortable for 4 miles. It is windproof in strong winds and the large was large enough for the other aforementioned layers. Even though it costs more, I am happy with this purchase.
