Raidlight Ultralight 20MP+ Waterproof Jacket Review
This waterproof jacket has just arrived and proving a huge hit with our customers and staff. Matthew who works here at myRaceKit runs in this jacket and raves about it.
Matt took on the Billericay 10K at the weekend and the heavens opened. It was the perfect place to test the NEW Raidlight Ultralight Waterproof and it did not disappoint. Matt tested the Raidlight waterproof when our rep came into the store. (You may remember him walking about the store in it on our socials) He claims he always sweats when wearing a waterproof as breathability is always an issue. Some jackets can feel a bit like plastic and not comfortable. This jacket breaks the mould. It is not hot and extremely breathable. With a lot of waterproof jackets you end up tying them around your waist when you get hotter but this jacket keeps you at a constant temperature.
The jacket doesn’t have any pockets however it will compact down to a small size in your pack or side leg pocket. You can easily use this jacket as a windproof as it is so light and breathable. The sleeves have thumb loops to keep the jacket in place and includes the reflective logos to make sure you are seen at night. The pack grips on the shoulders are also a great feature and not something you see on a lot of jackets.
Matt was able to keep the hood up for the race due to the snug fit. He said that it moves with you as well so that you don’t turn and face the inside of your hood! A great peak to stop the rain pouring in your eyes too. Overall this waterproof ticks all the boxes. It is the Rolls Royce of waterproofs and you will not have to buy another one anytime soon. Happy Shopping!
