We have recently teamed up with Ultra168, a leading online resource for ultra marathon and trail running. We are offering a special discount on all RaidLight and RaidLight Vertical products to their supporter club members.
Ultra168 says they're born on the trails. We love their name, which is based on their ethos - no excuses in life, just choices. The team at Ultra168 talk about the fact that there are 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week and that makes 168 hours to do the stuff you enjoy doing. There's always time to run, you decide when and how much.
Part of our partnership means we are giving random members a chance to try out our products in exchange for a review and write up on the Ultra168 Blog and the first product reviewed was our RaidLight Extreme Men's Jacket. This is a high-tech, lightweight, waterproof and breathable jacket that uses membrane technology to ensure extreme comfort while you run.
Ultra168 Supporter, Jeremy Gordon was selected to review the item, and now has a new jacket in his kit. Here is some of Jeremy had to say.
"Firstly, the jacket folds up nicely into one of the pockets. This pocket is way smaller than I can get my North Face jacket in, even with rubber bands and vacuum bags trying to get it as small as I can. This pocket is a big tick for me when you’re trying to pack as small and as light as possible."
"The Raidlight has a clear panel on the left wrist, perfect for being able to view your watch without having to try to pull-up the elastic cuff over a chunky GPS unit. I haven’t seen this before and it’s simple, and very effective. Top marks for innovation."
"For those who love technical details, the jacket is waterproof and breathable to 15,000 g/m/24. This is at the higher end of the scale and it was noticeably more breathable than any other jacket I’ve used. There are no vents under the arms but it doesn’t really need them."
Thanks Jeremy for such an honest, unbiased opinion and thanks Ultra168 to work with your and your Supporters Club.
