I skipped the second version of the All Weather Jacket because I was still more than satisfied with the first version – and, strictly speaking, still am. The leap to the current third version is nevertheless clearly noticeable!

Soar All Weather Jacket 3.0
The Soar All Weather Jacket 3.0 is the ultimate winter jacket. It simply does everything you need: it protects you from cold, rain and wind.
The special feature of the material is that it does not have a membrane for rain protection. In the unique manufacturing process of the fabric, the yarn is first given a DWR protection, then woven, shrunk and the result is given another DWR protection.
This creates a very, very dense fabric that has an extremely high level of protection against rain and wind without a membrane. At the same time, the fabric remains breathable, so that you could also do the most sweaty training sessions in winter with it.
Similar to the Windbreaker 2.0, the innovations in the All Weather Jacket 3.0 are not that big, but still make a big difference. Tim Soar’s team has integrated a drawstring and extended and “stiffened” the back section. This has significantly improved the fit on the lower back.
In addition to a generous chest pocket for a mobile phone, the Soar jacket also has a back pocket for gloves or food. Thanks to the perfect fit of the sporty cut All Weather, you can also carry heavier items in the back if you need to.
Die Innenseite des Stoffes ist übrigens leicht rau, so daß er sich sehr gut auch direkt auf der Haut tragen lässt. Das erweitert das Einsatzspektrum der Jacke enorm, denn sie kann schon bei milderen Temperaturen direkt auf der Haut getragen werden – später ergänzt um ein T-Shirt, Longsleeve oder wärmenden Baselayer.
I actually take the Soar All Weather Jacket with me on every autumn or winter holiday. No weather can surprise me. Whether it’s rain, hail or snow, with this jacket I’m always suitably dressed. It is very versatile.
Although the jacket is not particularly thick, you should not underestimate its warmth. You certainly don’t need to wear more than one layer underneath – depending on your personal preferences, of course. For me, it is used from around 5°C and in any case throughout the winter. Only on extremely cold days or on very long runs do I wear a gilet as an additional layer.
