The coaches jacket has long been a staple on the cross country course, but hasn’t been upgraded since Adams State perfect scored Nationals in 1992. Ours utilizes a water-repellent and breathable Schoeller fabric that protects without overheating. And the classic styling harkens back to the original style, while looking and feeling thoroughly modern.

Better Than Ever

Fans of cross country will remember the swish-swish of spectators jogging between the best viewpoints on the course. Many will also remember - with less nostalgia - the cling of nylon to skin, of poor breathability and poor construction.

That’s why we’ve updated the beloved coaches jacket with breathable, lightweight, water-repellent fabrics and high-quality construction. It’s a versatile companion for warm-up, travel and spectating packed into a silhouette that’s reminiscent of classic American athletic style.

Winning Details

Gold buttons allude to the most sought after color in sport. And - in a nod to a time of more considered detailing - we finished the hem with white drawstrings and leather stops.

For Cold Hands

Few things are more comforting than balling up the hands, gloves and all, into a set of spacious jacket pockets. Ours are roomy, secure and thoughtfully placed.

Material Selection

We selected a premium 4-way stretch woven from Schoeller that is water repellant and wind-proof, thanks to an innovative combination of warp yarns - Breeze® - that create a cooling effect and weft yarns - Meryl® Nexten - that create a microclimate within the fabric to insulate against the elements. We lined the jacket with our anti-microbial and lightweight 2:09 mesh for added breathability.

Anything But

Just before this year’s camp, Rafa Oliveira came down with the kind of nagging injury that plagues any physical-limit-pushing sport. Playing it smart, he took a few weeks off, recording splits and providing support for the other athletes at camp. But there’s much to be gained from witnessing the efforts of others. In speaking with him a week after camp, with a new sparkle in his eye, he had three words for his friends— tough as nails.

Rafa is 6'2" and wears a size Large.
