Aw, this is my beautiful little sister Becca, she got a bit chilly filming me running in my @recorefitness bump support last weekend ? so I pulled the new, wonderfully light and warm @the_omm Core Fleece Jacket ? out of my @harrier_trail_running Curbar 5L Running vest for her. It’s SOOOO LIGHT! ??? 175g women’s size M! 20g more in men’s.

It’s made from Primaloft’s new Next fabric that mimics animal fur ? with different length fibres to maximise air flow on the move but trap more when you’ve stopped. ? It’s very breathable so when combined with a Windproof or waterproof in high winds it is super toasty I love it! I think my sister wants mine for Christmas now too! ? ? 

What’s even better about this jacket is that it’s 58% recycled fabric & @bluesigntechnologies & Oeke-Tex approved (both environmental biggies). ? ? ? Nice one OMM & Primaloft! We like! 

? Gotta pay a bit for that kind of whizzy new tec tho – £110 and available in sizes XS-XL. My sister is probs a size 10 and is wearing a women’s M. It even stretches over my 32wk baby bump! ? 

Nope, no one paid me to write this. I just got sent it to test out and really rate it so thought I’d share the joy. ?
