Fitness Friday: Weather Proof Running Jacket by Karrimor


Recently, I was introduced to a Karrimor outdoor recreation gear. As a newbie runner, novice hiker and an avid speed walking enthusiast I jumped on the opportunity to get some weather proof jackets from Sports Direct and review the products from Karrimor. Sports Direct offers something that other online fitness apparel companies do not, and that is plus size workout clothes. They have a range of different brands and styles ranging up to a size 22!  I got my running jackets in a size 16 just to be safe.

Being from Washington exercising outdoors has always been way more exciting than boring ol’ gym equipment. Working out in San Diego is so much different it’s hard to adapt. I am constantly looking for gear that will protect me from heat, cold, rain and sun but also not encourage sweat or trap heat. Especially when I am hiking, it is nice to have a light jacket made for exercising and working out.

My Karrimor Sierra weatherproof shell and weather proof soft shell jacket are my latest fitness fashion obsession. While in Seattle for the holidays, I got to test the weather proof abilities of the brand. From fog to frost, sun and rain I’ve been able to workout while traveling.When it was really cold outside, I layered my soft shell jacket under the waterproof jacket and was snug as a bug in a rug. It was about 37 degrees when I took my walk and by layering the jackets it kept me warm but not hot.

**If you are planning on buying the waterproof shell, I would get it in a size smaller than you usually would. The soft shell is pretty true to size.**
