Light weight jacket

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

This jacket is lighter weight than I expected. I can wear it under my North Face Rain jacket with out it feeling bulky. I bought an XL just a little big in some areas but it does have a weird bunching in the chest area. It almost rises up on you when wearing it. I was surprised how much the regular price was for this jacket because of how light weight it is. Not even sure I would consider this a jacket. You defiantly have to layer it if you want to stay warm. Wearing it alone is good only over 55+ degrees weather outside.


  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I originally bought the jacket in XS but it was too tight in the arms and chest (I am 5'2" and 108 lbs); I exchanged it for a S, and it fits perfectly. It is a pretty fitted jacket. I use it for hiking and find it provides good wind and rain protection in mild/moderate conditions. It is very lightweight. I love the look and the purple color.

really wanted to like it

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

but it had some strange bunching in the chest area. I am always ont he lookout for running jackets with a chest pocket (that way my phone doesnt' freeze on the cold days) I sized up (Im 5'3 120, but I have bigger shoulders) and I think it is made for someone with much bigger boobs than I have. It looked really strange.
