Raidlight Activ Windproof Jacket
The Activ Windproof jacket gives full protection from the wind with high level breathability. Weighing only 95g and a small pack size makes this jacket perfect to carry in changeable conditions.
Designed to provide protection whilst remaining completely lightweight, the Raidlight Activ Windproof Jacket is the perfect addition to your running wardrobe. Constructed using a completely windproof fabrication, the Activ Jacket blocks out cold winds to keep you comfortable and warm when temperatures drop. The jacket keeps the chill away and also shields you from light rain. The thin barrier also works to increase ventilation to keep you comfortable within the jacket when your training session heats up. The fabrication allows cool air to flow throughout the garment whilst, at the same time allowing hot, humid air to escape; this creates a perfect microclimate for your skin to thrive in. To ensure added protection from the elements the Activ jacket features an attached hood with a stiffened peak that can be used to shield the face from harsh winds and rain. The hood also features elastic in the seam which allows you to stretch the hood for an optimum fit. As well as this, elasticated cuffs and hem offer a comfortable fit that helps to seal in escaping heat. A full zip exists to provide ultimate temperature control; in colder climates, it can be worn up to seal in heat or when the temperature begins to rise it can be worn down to release an intolerable heat build-up. As well as this, vents across the back and shoulder increase airflow to keep you cool when temperatures rise. Completing the jacket are reflective details which increase your visibility to passing vehicles on late night adventures.
In 1999, international level runner Benoit Laval established RaidLight, a brand for trail running and adventure racing, born from his passion for the mountains and running, combined with his expertise as a textile engineer (working as a sub contractor to many large sportswear brands). With design and manufacturing skills in one hand and knowledge and experience of the sport in the other, he had a desire to make his own prototypes. So, RaidLight began in a garage, with 10 products and 2 trestle tables at races.
'Raid' is a wink to the origins of trail running and adventure/expedition racing (this is a 'raid' in French). 'Light' is underlining the brands main area of innovation; designing and developing lightweight equipment for increased comfort of the participants. The logo is in the style of a compass, the 4 arrows in 4 directions are the cardinal points, symbolising the taste for adventure around the world.
