LOVE this jacket. Living in the Pacific Northwest, I frequently find myself running through rain, putting on mileage through wet snow, or skate skiing through dry but cold temps. A girl has got to weather the elements for cardio around here! This jacket is versatile, but protects the core for those heart pounding activities. It blocks the wind and slush, but still feels flexible and light, not stiff.
At 5'8, the sleeves are long enough to comfortably hit my wrists, and it falls at a flattering length at my hips. The cuffs are of a soft material, which stay in place under gloves, and the pockets are perfect for a trail map and a phone. On super cold days, I need to pair this with a neck warmer or a buff, since collar doesn't come up very high, but that also leads to more comfort most of the time. Looking forward to the ski season with this one!
