    I got this for Christmas this year, and it's great. I had been borrowing a cycling high-visibility jacket for running in cool weather and low light, but this one is much better. The fabric is very flexible, and although it is thin water beads up on it. It's not the warmest thing in winter (it's really cold here) but with under armor underneath it's good. It is extremely visible to cars, and also has extra visible lines on parts of it. I really like how it looks and feels. It's a great idea to have a high-vis jacket like this for road running; it definitely seems to help the cars see me.

    The only con is that the sleeves seem a little short compared to the torso fit. I have the medium, and while there's plenty of room in the torso, when I hook the sleeves over my thumbs they feel a little short. Nothing crazy or really uncomfortable, but something to note. I run all the time, most often between 3 and 5 miles but up to 13.5, and pretty much always out on the roads so visibility is important to me. If you feel the same way, this jacket's probably a good buy for you.

    I bought this for my sister at the San Antonio Rock N Roll Marathon and didn't realize until I got home that the sleeves had thumb holes. I love that feature, but unfortunately the sleeves are too short before I pull them out that far and they are way too short if I try to use the thumbholes. Now I'm stuck trying to figure out what to do with the jacket.

        I purchased this for safety when I run early in the morning or during dusk. I had anticipated it being a bit thicker and warmer. It is more of a windbreaker, and for the price, I expected more insulation.

        Comments about Nightlife Jacket II:

        I've only worn this jacket once so far, but I really liked it a lot. The only thing I didn't like was the sizing initially. I ordered a small first and it was way too tight around the chest and the sleeves were really short. The sleeves wouldn't have bothered me if they didn't have the spot for your thumb. Once I ordered a size up, it was much better, but still seemed a bit small when I tried it on. However, when I wore it on my run, it was really comfortbale. I would recommend ordering a size up especially if you have "a lot to work with in the chest area" ;)

          I love this jacket. It's great to layer over cold weather shirts and it's great on milder days to just wear over my running bra. Especially good for damp morning runs in low lights and night time runs. Best thing I've every bought.

              I bought this jacket for running in adverse conditions and none too soon. It has been freezing every morning when I run. but my jacket keeps me at a good temperature without being too heavy. Love the weight and the color that can be seen as I run. Keeps me dry too.

                  I love how bright the jacket is, I call it nuclear. It has good ventilation and wasn't too constrictive during my run. However, it felt a little snug in the sleeves around my forearm and also around my chest when I had to bend to tie my shoes. I bought a small but wonder if I should have gotten a medium. It would be nice if the sleeves would allow me to put my gps watch under a flap and not in a pocket. For reference I am 5'2" and 110 lbs and a 32D on top. Hope this helps.

                  I bought this jacket for running in the dark in the winter. The reflectivity is good and the bright color helps too in the typical dingy Michigan winter.
                  The fit is REALLY small. I bought a Medium and am 5'1" and weigh 100 pounds. Rarely can I wear a medium in anything. Sleeves run short as well.
                  The waterproof media pocket is too narrow to hold an iPhone and probably won't work for anything other than a small iPod or Mp3 player.
