As a runner in Portland, I have lots of experience running in the rain (or praying to the clouds that they will take a pause for me this one time). With the temperatures starting to rise, it gets more challenging to decide the right layers to stay dry-er in the rain without melting from the heat. I’m happy to share that I have my new favorite outer layer for the rain thanks to Outdoor Research. And I have already ordered a second shirt because the forecast looks cloudy for a while.
The Women’s Echo Hoodie is a comfortable and simple long-sleeve hoodie with a minimal logo and the much loved thumb holes. I’ve already worn and washed my Classic Blue one with no visible changes to the color. I loved that the blue color was dark enough to not feel see through. Running in the rain I felt the extra layer kept me dry for the first couple of miles, and by then I’m just all soaked and not worrying about it.
Here’s some more details I learned thanks to the folks at Outdoor Research.
The fabric was designed to be “ultralight, quick trying, wicking, breathable” and provide some protection from the sun. The soft and simple design works as a single layer for warmer weather or (like me) an outer layer for chillier (or wetter) outings.
