Discontinued: As of June 2017, the Sonic is No Longer AvailableOur Best Buy Award winner, the Saucony Sonic offers a welcome relief from the elements. It's an awesome full-zip running jacket that features great breathability, and it can hold its own in both wind and water resistance. Additionally, this piece comes with enough pockets to store anything you could want to bring with you on a run. And if that wasn't enough, Saucony included a USB LED rechargeable light perfect for maximizing low-light visibility. It's almost unbelievable that such a high-performing product would only set you back $100, which is why we've given it our Best Buy award.
We took this piece out on multiple five-mile runs and tested it in the rain, snow, and on windy days. The only downside to this running jacket is that it turns out to be one of the heaviest pieces we tested, which makes it less than ideal for long distance running. If you're looking for something for those long runs, check out the Arc'teryx Incendo, or Montane Featherlite 7. And despite the plethora of pockets, it doesn't have a specifically designed pouch for your media device, like the Brooks Infiniti Jacket.
