We’ve just reviewed the excellent Arc’teryx Incendo Hoody lightweight running jacket, but what if you want something better suited to cold weather mountain running? The answer could be the brand’s Trino ‘mountain training jacket’.
We got one in for our trail running round-up, it simply hasn’t been cold enough to use it yet, so you’ll have to wait for a full review.
What we can tell you already is that it’s a sleekly cut, slickly designed top that should work for cycling as well as trail running. At a real-life 410g for a medium-sized Trino, it’s very definitely a jacket that you’ll be wearing all run rather than stashing away in a bum-bag or pack.
The jacket’s main fabric is Gore’s completely windproof and highly water-resistant Windstopper, but in a tacit acknowledgement that runners run hot and needed added breathability, there are strategic panels of an air-permeable stretch fabric called Atreus.
The front of the jacket is completely windproof as are the shoulders and outer sleeves, but the central back panel, insides of the arms and rear of the collar use the more breathable stuff.
The idea is that you get decent weather protection where you need it, but enough breathability to shed heat as you run.
The fabric also gets a DWR – water resistant – treatment to help deal with light showers and snow, this is a deep winter running jacket after all.
