Waterproof Jackets to Brave the Outdoor Fitness Trend | TQS Magazine

If the buzz around Prince Charles’ Countryfile wardrobe has taught us anything in recent weeks is that a dependable waterproof jacket ain’t to be sniffed at! But before you take to butchering garden jackets in the pursuit of our royal heir’s outdoorsy look I want to broach on a more practical trend for you urban dwellers!

With outdoor gyms, boot camp training and even outdoor fitness sessions for singletons exploding all over London it seems that confining your half-baked attempts at a six pack to the walls of the local leisure centre isn’t going to cut it anymore. No people want proof.

If you’re not pounding the pavements in the pouring rain or attempting press ups in a conspicuous park area then you might as well admit that your gym membership was nothing more than a feckless attempt to fool yourself and others of your fitness prowess.

With 2013 offering us nothing but cold winds and drizzle so far I’ve picked out my top three waterproof jackets from Blacks for those looking to brave this new fitness trend:

PETER STORM Men’s Techlite Jacket

PETER STORM Men’s Jack-in-a-Pack Short Length
