startfitness.co.uk or sweatshop.co.uk are great usually get some good deals too.

Most brands are pretty good, nike, asics, ron hill, adidas...

What kind of jacket are you after? I've got just a windproof top from ronhill which I find keeps me nice and warm... anything else and I reckon I'd overheat!

I've got a concurve goretex running jacket ,it cost an inordinate amount of money but i have to say it's a superb running jacket you stay bone dry if its lashing down and it doesn't make you sweat at all .

I only use it in foul weather though!

I can't run in a jacket. Last week I ran and the rain was really hammering it down, then I just had my vest on. I just can't be doing with jackets I'm the same in Winter.

One of my best buys is a flo jacket from JJB £8 I believe they still sell them, not waterproof but certainly showerproof, I re-spray mine with waterproofing every so often, not too heavy and you dont get run over bonus!

Which one do you have? I'm looking at either the Magnitude or the Air. Would be interested in your experience with yours.
