I'm a runner. I run ultras and the only thing I will not run in is lightning. I have been on the quest for the perfect jacket. Jackets sold in running stores just don't cut it for me. They don't hold off the wind, water or cold long enough for me with the miles I put in.
That said, I have found the perfect jacket. I have run in low 20s (I'm in Arkansas, yet to hit the teens) with bone chilling winds and I have stayed very comfortable. I sweat heavy and don't notice it. THe jacket breathes very well and does a great job of blocking the wind.
I HATE the cold and this jacket has kept me very warm. I wear a baselayer underneath it and I'm fine.
I do wish it had pit zips but this jacket wasn't made for runners so I can't complain there. However, I have found by leaving the pockets open my body breathes a little better.
