To make a truly brilliant waterproof running jacket you need a perfect storm. Firstly, Dr Ron Hill MBE. A record-breaking trailblazer, not just on the track but in the design of running clothing. Secondly, Manchester. The centrepiece of textile innovation and expertise that became known as Cottonopolis. Finally, rain. This is to Manchester like the sun is to California; making Manchester the perfect place to design and test waterproof jackets. The Fortify is for the pavement-pounders who aren’t afraid of a little rain – or a lot of rain. Granting full waterproof and windproof protection, this functional piece is the ultimate elemental shield. This high spec Japanese fabric uses a very lightweight 15 denier polyamide face with stretch combined with a high performance hydrophilic laminate which ensures excellent breathability. Reflective strips on the front and back of the jacket ensure that drivers know where you are, and the fully adjustable hood gives an unobstructed view whilst keeping rain out. The front chest pocket is the place to stash a pair of merino gloves for when your hands turn icy, and an additional internal fob pocket features a hook to keep your door key safe.
