The Raidlight Ultra MP+ Jacket is a lightweight, waterproof and highly breathable jacket designed specifically for races when there's a mandatory kit list required.
The full stretch Ultra MP+ Jacket uses our 2 layer Stretchlight MP+ membrane. Highly waterproof and extremely breathable with a lightweight and small pack size it is perfect to carry for regulation races, but at the same time very usable if the weather turns against you.
This updated version of the Raidlight Top Ultralight Jacket is even lighter than before but even more breathable with a MVTR of 20,000. The main body is made from a lightweight full stretch fabric which doesn't feel to clammy next to your skin compared to some other running jackets. The shoulder panels are made from slightly heavier fabric, which doesn't have as much stretch but is more durable.
It's important to note that the jacket has a waterproof membrane, not coating, meaning it's more breathable than waterproof in certain areas and vice versa in the areas needed.
The hood doesn't feature a peak but I find just wearing a peak cap underneath works just as well. A unique feature is the watch window on the left sleeve - only useful if your a lefty though. The jacket packs down small into it's own pocket so it doesn't take up much space in your running pack/vest.
