Womens Running Gilets

Without doubt, one of the most underated pieces in the runners' armoury of running clothing has to be the sleeveless running gilet.

Living in a mixed climate like that found in the UK, on a year round basis we are often faced with the dilemma of running in a jacket or risking the weather and running in a tech t or thermal mid layer. Thankfully, lightweight running gilets offer the perfect solution, as we discuss in more detail here:

As the garment is, as it's name suggests, sleeveless, it's possible to be a little more creative with the fabric. In most cases, our collection of ladies running gilets use windproof or a highly resistant wind resistant fabrics. This allows the garment to protect the torso from the elements and prevents the body from cooling too rapidly. This, in addition to the sleeveless styling, allows the garment to offer high levels of ventilation so giving the right balance of protection from the wind, elements and breathability. In addition to the use of lightweight breath able fabrics, some garments benefit from the use of punched out fabric which again assists breathabilty and accordingly, a more comfortable work out.Lockdown zips. May sound trivial but small details such as the use of lockdown zippers helps you to focus on your training session. The simple design prevents the zippers from moving whilst working out. Likewise, secure, zippered pockets are extremely useful-whether using them to stash an energy bar in, a mobile phone, or maybe a key or two.

Another big benefit of using a sleeveleess design, is that the reduced importance of garment breathability, (think lack of sleeves,) allows us to increase the amount of reflective fabric on the garment. We offer three options, each with a different slant on the quest for the best reflective running gilet. First and foremost, we have the Pace Lightweight Running Gilet that uses windproof fabric throughout, and to compensate for this, the garment only sports a reflective trim. For those looking for the ultimate in reflective running gilets, the Pace Spirit Ladies Reflective Running Gilet just does that. With extensive panels of high visibility reflective fabric over the front and rear of the shoulders, the garment uses a fully windproof fabric to the front and punched out fabric to the rear-so making the garment ideal for three season running. For those looking for an even lighter weight option, the Unisex Lightweight Reflective Running Gilet us perfect for spring, summer and autumn evenings.

To finish the garments off, lockdown zips are used on the pocket(s). May sound trivial but small details such as the use of lockdown zippers helps you to focus on your training session. The simple design prevents the zippers from moving whilst working out. Likewise, secure, zippered pockets are extremely useful-whether using them to stash an energy bar in, a mobile phone, or maybe a key or two.
