Indie running company Tracksmith has officially unveiled its new 'Rain Collection,' a concise ensemble of high-performance running apparel designed especially for rainy-day runs.
The collection's two standout pieces include the Rain Jacket and Rain Shorts, both of which feature a super-lightweight material that is made from fluorocarbon-free Japanese fabric. In addition, the Rain Jacket comes equipped with back and front ventilation, which has been designed to increase airflow mid-run to help athletes stay dry and comfortable. Meanwhile, the Rain Shorts boast a nonrestrictive fit and feature laser-cut and bonded hemwork, meaning they will not chafe or irritate the skin.
For those interested, the entire Tracksmith 'Rain Collection' is now available to purchase on the brand's website.
