When your alarm clock goes off at 6 a.m. during the early parts of spring, the last thing you want to do is drag yourself out of bed for a run. The chill-filled weather makes it much easier to slam the snooze button and rollover for 8 more minutes of awakened sleep.
GoLite has introduced the Black Mountain Thermal Wind Jacket which is touted as a solution for these cooler spring mornings.
The GoLite Black Mountain Thermal Wind Jacket is a new release for the Spring 2010 season. The jacket features a windproof chest and shoulders with a back consisting of GoLie's patented Minerale fabric. Minerale utilizes Cocona which is a smoothly-textured material known for its superior wicking ability. The exterior of the jacket has 2 zippered-pockets and there are 2 roomy mesh pockets on the jacket's interior.
The jacket has a streamlined athletic fit but is not restricting. It doesn't interfere the piston-like movements of your arms on your half-asleep run before you start your work day. Stiff headwinds did not penetrate the front of the Black Mountain Thermal Wind Jacket. And a drizzle or a light rain rolled right off the jacket.
The silky texture of the interior of the jacket felt comfortable and did not irritate the little bit of exposed skin that it was covering. Combine the Black Mountain Thermal Wind Jacket with a light non-cotton tee and it makes the right duo for runs in temperatures in the low to mid 40's (Fahrenheit).
If you have to wear a jacket for a chilly morning run, the GoLite Black Mountain Thermal Wind Jacket is a good choice. GoLite lists the Black Mountain Thermal Wind Jacket at $150, and it's available in 4 color schemes – red, blue, black and green.
