Daniel Neilson tests a host of breathable jackets that will stand up against the wind. On test Inov-8 Race Elite Windshell HZ Jacket

This is easily one of the lightest jackets in the test, and very minimalist (Inov-8of course make more substantial jackets). There’s no hood, something I’d prefer but such is its weight, I’ve found myself picking it regularly up for spring runs. There’s a small chest pocket big enough for a phone and that’s about it. It’s a pullover style with a two-way zip. The Pertex Quantum is light, durable and breathable – and probably one of the most water resistant here. It stuffs into a tiny bag. It’s good value at £65 too.
