It is safe to say, that I am a sucker for anything running related, whether it be clothing or otherwise, and just before Christmas last year, my lovely friends at Jordan Joseph very kindly sent me their ladies running jacket.
Now, it has to be said, that when you receive this piece of sports kit, it is a decadent experience from the very start.
It comes in a beautifully presented box, cushioned on JJ tissue paper, wrapped in trademark Jordan Joseph ribbon, which encapsulates your purchase. It almost feels a little Hollywood as you unwrap it; a very nice touch indeed.
What struck me as I lifted it from its luxurious travel box was the weight of the garment; but in stark contrast, the lightness of the fabric.
I am a ladies UK size 10-12, and the small in their range fits effortlessly. The sleeves are perfectly long enough, with the welcome thumb holes. It zips up comfortably to the neck without indentation to the skin, and the hood, for days when it is particularly windy or wet, will shield you very nicely indeed from the elements.
As someone who has a fluctuating body temperature, I found the jacket cleverly regulated this, and I didn’t have to take it off mid run; it stayed the course comfortably.
There are no seams to rub here either, a sophisticated piece of running kit which has been expertly crafted.
Overall, I would give the Jordan Joseph Running Jacket 10/10. Well worth its purchase price, and will see you time and time again on many runs to come.
