Running gillet?

I currently run wearing a fleece gillet over my long sleeved running top. It's a little on the warm side but i like the zipped up pockets as it's somewhere to stash my iphone and hanky. I thought about buying a running jacket but having tried a few on i didn't like the sleeves so i'm now wondering if there's sucha thin as a running gillet. If anyone nows of where to find one (that's not really expensive) good you point my in the right direction?

Thanks, Allie

I got a Ronhill hi-viz gillet for £15 from ebay (new). I don't see it on the Ronhill website now, so may be last year's stock, but if your search on ebay there are several sellers with them still for sale.

Search for "Ronhill Vizion Running windlite Gilet body warmer"

I got yellow, but I think they are in pink hi-viz too. It's very thin, and I almost used it today, but since it was below zero it was just a little too cold. I think it will be fine down to about 2 or 3 degrees above freezing.


Hi - I've got a pink karrimor hi vis gilet which is great - thin enough so that I don't get overheated but enough to be an extra layer, and with handy pockets too.

Sports direct have a selection from about £10 at sportsdirect.com/SearchResu...


They sound great thank you Perhaps another item to add to my Christmas list


Perhaps Christmas might arrive early? Just placed an order. Thank you both. Allie


Amazon do a few running gilet jackets which I have looked at a few times, the sleeves can be unzipped to wear as a Gilet. I'm sure other outlets will do similar too. Might be of interest to you.


I got one from TK Maxx. It's a bit hit and miss what they have but might be worth a look.
