Thermoshell Pro Full Zip Women’s Running Jacket – Reviewed

 

#inov8month

With the winter getting colder and the wind picking up out in the hills it’s time to reach for a warm jacket and get outside.  The Inov8 Thermoshell Pro has quickly become a favourite of mine and is ideally suited to cold outings whether you’re just out walking in the hills or competing in a mountain marathon. It is also my go-to pre/post-race cover up as it delivers warmth without being too bulky.

The Thermoshell uses PrimaLoft Black Insulation ThermoPlume which means it is as soft and compressible as natural goose down but its water-resistant finish means that you stay warm even in wet conditions. This technology gives the coat thermal properties equivalent to 550 fill power down – which is a lot! The outer fabrics are also water-resistant and wind proof which further protects you from harsher conditions.

When moving the jacket fits easily to your form allowing a full range of movement, this means you can hop, skip and jump your way across the mountains. The hood can also be adjusted so that it stays in place whilst you’re moving – keeping your face protected from the elements and the soft inner cuff prevents drafts from sneaking up your sleeves.

The jacket can be packed easily away into an internal pocket and weighs under 400g which makes it the perfect coat for anyone who wants to save on weight but not on warmth.

(the inov-8 Thermoshell Pro is available at the Accelerate Store)
