I've been wearing mine for a couple weeks now and I really like it. It's amazingly lightweight for such a "beefy" (waterproof/windproof/warm) jacket.

It's warm, so I would recommend it as a running jacket only for cold climates (30's and below). Great for casual wear on cooler days (40's-50's).

Did I mention how lightweight it is? The first time out you'll probably feel the need to put on an extra (mid) layer underneath it because it is so lightweight, but a base layer and the jacket is probably all you'll need. (It's hasn't hit single digits yet where I am yet, so I may change my mind about this deeper into winter).

Great winter running jacket.

I really have tried to like this product. It is bright/highly visible and lightweight, but as others have said it is very cool at the start and then clammy once I work up a sweat no matter what the outside temp or base layer I use. Permanent front and back panel vents allow cool air in at all times with movement causing a chill. If there is any wind, this effect seems to worsen. Ran in light snow and repelled moisture well. Also, thumb holes are awkward when putting on and don't stretch well. I have longish arms (35-36) and I can't use the thumb holes because they pull and are uncomfortable at the base of my thumb. I use for visibility only, and am overall disappointed in fit and cold weather functioning of this product.

    Comments about Silver Bullet Jacket:

    I was going to wait until winter was done to write my review, but here it is April in Michigan and I still have opportunity to use this jacket.

    I use this jacket with a base layer and sometimes a second layer. The breathability was very good. Whether a 5K or Half Marathon, I was quite comfortable. I also like the visibility features. And since I don't use an iPod when running, the iPod pocket is a nice protected pocket for keys.

    The only negative I find is the wrist area is tight when using gloves and makes it a bit difficult to engage the built in hand covers—guite a nice feature for some additional wind protection—or to view and start/stop watch.

    Comments about Silver Bullet Jacket:

    I took up running later in life for health reasons. I am not an athlete and run only a 12 to 14 min mile. I love running outside but the winter months in Chicago are challenging to say the least. I tried the Brooks Silver Bullet jacket and really like it. As others said it takes a while to warm up but once it gets going it's toasty. I'm sure it warms up faster if you run faster, but for me at my speed it still works great. I layer underneath for the really cold temps but add only an Under Armour 3.0 and compression crew. Cuts the wind no prob even running right by the lake. I don't worry about the temps anymore. I chose the yellow nightlife version which adds more visibility. Could stand to have more reflective accents but next season's version promises to do just that. Awesome technology. Highly recommend!

      Comments about Silver Bullet Jacket:

      I bough this jacket to give me an option on the worst weather days in Northeast Ohio. I've used it several times and have been very impressed. The heat reflective fabric does work, but when the shell hits your body (even through a couple of layers) it feels clammy. There is no perfect solution to running in temperatures below 20 degrees, but this jacket is about the best option I have found. It keeps me warm enough and is very easy to layer. As some other reviewers have said, this is NOT a jacket to use when it's not sub-freezing. It will roast you in no time if worn on milder days. It's made for the coldest weather and can be made warmer (or not) depending on how you layer underneath. I've never needed more than 2 lightweight layers.

      It's very lightweight with great pockets and ventilation. I love the fit. Snug in the right places, but not too tight anywhere. It has some flex to it making it somewhat customized to your shape. The thumb holes in the sleeve lining are a nice touch, but they are somewhat challenging to use with gloves / mittens.

      Overall, a great jacket.

      Comments about Silver Bullet Jacket:

      Wanted this coat to be able to layer on really cold days even though I am a warm runner to begin with.

      I have worn it twice, once at 14 degrees and today at 22 degrees for 60 minutes each time with only a Brooks Podium 1/2 zip shirt underneath and found the coat to be quite warm, almost too warm. The arm length on an XL is perfect for a 34/35 arm length. The arm width is a little tighter than I would like, I have fairly thin forearms so any gorillas out there be warned even the XL I found tight.

      I wish Brooks and others would strategically place zippers on the arms to be able to vent/dump heat quickly then be able to close once cooled down enough.

      Other than that I am impressed how warm this is, be warned it is a bit chilly for the first few minutes but is fine once you get going.

          Comments about Silver Bullet Jacket:

          Jacket is very light, and has nice venting. If you run in a cold area, and also encounter windy/rainy weather - this jacket will protect you from the elements like no other jacket I've owned.
          HOWEVER, I'm returning the product for a couple of reasons:
          1. Even though it has nice venting, it heats up quickly, and I get VERY hot. That alumi-lining almost works too well. I've ran in rain/sleet in sub 20 degree weather and still get too hot in nothing but a short sleeve tech tee and this jacket.
          2. The media pocket is extremely small. It's built for an iPod nano or something similar. If you use your phone for GPS and music, you'll have to find an alternate carry method. A phone simply won't come close to fitting this tiny pouch.
          3. I'm no body builder, but the bicep area in the sleeves is a bit tight - otherwise the fit is nice.
          I really wanted to love this jacket - but the heating up and the media pocket is just too much. If the media pocket were the appropriate size, I'd keep it for that 1-2 months a year I could use it around here.

          This jacket met all my expectations for cold, wet days running, biking, walking. The color was exactly like the picture. I got one large bigger for under layers and I was warm and comfortable. The pocket on the inside of the jacket for the smart phone, iPod, etc is way too narrow. I would have liked to seen a wider pocket that would protect the electronics, and maybe even place it chest high for easier access.

            I was a member of a 24 hour relay team recently. It was a one mile loop & we were all prepared to sleep in the tent between our running shift. THANKS to my Silver Bullett Jacket, I was the only team member who stayed the whole night. It got down to about 28 during the night, but I was WARM cause I wore my jacket when I got into my sleeping bag. The other team members went home & had to set their alarm clocks. One of the BEST investments that I have made.

              Definitely for cold weather. It's so lightweight you won't believe it can keep you so warm. I made the mistake of wearing it when it was in the mid-40's one day. It's got to be low-30's or lower to use this jacket. Even then, this is the only layer you'll need. Just what I was looking for.
