      Comments about Utopia Soft Shell:

      I love this jacket! Found myself wearing it more and more as the winter went along. Didn't even feel like I was running in cold weather.

      Definitely lives up to its billing as windproof and waterproof. I wouldn't recommend wearing this above 35 degrees. Usually wore a thin base layer underneath and still broke a decent sweat every time.

        I bought this jacket for my father, because I love mine so much, I wanted him to enjoy the benefits of it too. Since I gave it to him, he runs with it all the time. He loves it as much as I do!

          Comments about Utopia Soft Shell:

          I simply love this jacket. I own two (had to get the orange one on clearance, just because it was a good investment). My black one is just over a year old...I wear these ALL THE TIME in sub 30 degree F weather. Above that, it's almost too warm.

          This jacket is plain great - only usually requires one layer (warm) underneath vs. two. Ran Happy in 9 degree F weather yesterday. This jacket is semi-fitted, so it's not too bulky. Everyone compliments me that it's "slimming" even though I carry some extra weight. I highly recommend it for the fan of winter running!

          Only drawback is the telescoping "half mitten" things up the sleeve. I rarely use them, and find that they just get in the way usually.

            This is the perfect jacket for cold runs below 30 degrees. Since I received my jacket a week ago, I have used it for a run where the temp was 18 degrees and another at 25. On both runs I just wore a long sleeve dri fit type shirt underneath the jacket. The jacket kept me warm without sweating too much. Overall, I have been very impressed with the jacket. It fits great! I am 5'6" 150lbs and the medium fits perfect. The jacket is very comfortable and works great for cold windy runs! I would recommend this jacket to anyone looking for something to keep them warm on cold windy winter runs!

                  I've been using this jacket as I train for my second marathon. It's amazing. I've been running in 35-40 degree weather and it's almost too warm for that. It's really warm. But it couldn't be any more comfortable.

                    In addition to the pros listed above, this jacket has a nice inner sleeve with thumb holes that can also be turned into gloves. Moreover, strings on the inside let you adjust the fit around the waist. One con is that it feels large around the chest/mid section for a medium. I am 5'10" 150 lbs and had hoped for a snugger fit.
