The challenge of this race was clearly the wet, wild, cold weather, with only one chance to pick up dry kit at Hebden.

The outstanding piece of kit for me was my Prismatic Jacket – I put it on under my Spine Jacket when I was cold at 30 miles and it was instance warmth. It then kept me warm and dry for the rest of the race.

The Spine has since been updated by the Fleet Jacket.
AVAILABLE IN MEN’S AND WOMEN’S

Last year I used the Fireball Verso Pull On but unlike the jacket it didn’t have the hood or the women’s fit that the Prismatic has for me.
AVAILABLE IN MEN’S ONLY
