The latest fabric innovation from Under Armour is called Storm Cotton. In theory, it’s a fantastic material: looks and feels exactly like cotton but has been treated to make it water resistant.
Like everyone else, we were very sceptical… so we put it to the test!
Watch this video in full screen to really appreciate how the water rolls off the material.
Some might argue we took it a bit too far, but my feeling is you’ve got to take these things to the limit before you really know how good they are!
In all seriousness though, it’s brilliant, perfect for UK weather. All the usual benefits of a hoody, but when it rains, bang the hood up and you’re away. Spot on.
