      Comments about Utopia Soft Shell:

      This jacket is very versatile. I bought a size up from what I normally wear. I wear it in 40 degree weather with a T shirt or 15 degrees with some layers. It offers the warmth of parka with the weight and bulk of a tissue! Amazing! Best running jacket ever!

        Comments about Utopia Soft Shell:

        I purchased the Utopia Soft Shell so I could run in NC, the weather has been insane, ice storms one week and then 70+ another. The Utopia is great for those below 40 days when it's semi-windy. It was sunny when I wore the jacket but 38, since it is pretty sturdy I was concerned about being overheated. I was wrong, it was perfect, kept me warm but not too warm so I did not feel like I was wearing a plastic bag and just pouring sweat.
        The jacket did the job, kept me warm but I did not die from heat exhaustion.
        Great jacket for running.

          Comments about Utopia Soft Shell:

          As I pulled this jacket out of the box I saw the cute flowers on the inside of the zipper and thought they were so cute. Then I discovered the the thumb slits. Best of all when I put it on it looked very cute. I bought this to have a jacket to wear when I am training clients in the gym and the the air conditioning is too cold. I don't know if I will use it for that,as it might be too heavy for that. But I will defiantly be using it as a jacket to wear to and from the gym and running errands.

            Very stylish jacket. Perfect for running. 20 degrees and all I need is a t-shirt underneath (with My Utopia Thermal Pants) and I am more than warm enough. Love the cut and the draw strings. I also love the extra material on the cuffs. Haven't tried out the handy glove, but I love the extra length on the sleeve. It is also a little longer, which is great for staying warm. Quick drying, so I don't need to wash it that often.

              Comments about Utopia Soft Shell:

              This jacket is great for weather below 40- with long sleeved base layer and running tights I was able to head out for my long run in 30 weather and run comfortable! I prefer running cool- so it kept me warm but not too warm. It stretches and the arms are the perfect length. I have broad shoulders and an athletic build- so usually jackets are too big through the chest if they fit through the shoulders. But this jacket fits perfect! It is also stylish enough to wear out casual and not look like you are wearing a "running" jacket.

                This jacket is terrific. Breathable , lightweight and super comfy. The collar is soft, does not irritate your face. Best if temp below 35F. Tremendous in the wind. Ran today 28F with 25mph sustained winds I was absolutely comfortable. Couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.

                  I get so many compliments on this jacket. I love the way it fits. I bought mine in black and it's high style, for sure. The jacket is light & trim. Does a great job of keeping me warm. I wear the Infiniti 1/2 zip under the jacket on really cold days of under 10 degrees. This jacket is also low maintenance - cold water wash & hang dry, comes out perfect every single time.

                  I love this jacket so much I bought one for my Husband. It's a great jacket for running & casual wear.

                    Excellent jacket, I love the features at the cuff for your thumbs and the ability to flip over for extra warmth. It's a great feature for the beginning of runs to keep my hands warm at the start. Best for low 30 degree days. Can't wait for snow for the extra protection from the elements.

                      So glad I took the plunge and decided to get this jacket. i had been going back and forth between 2 and I'm really glad this one is the winner!

                      Not only is it absolutely fabulous to run in (wind, rain or sleet? Not a problem with this jacket, and I run pretty cold, so that's saying something!), it's also great to wear as a casual jacket because of the craftsmanship, feminine profile and just overall design.

                      Plus, you can turn the thumbholes into mittens! I've been waiting AGES for this!

                        Ok so everytime I throw this jacket on, I find something new to love about it. The handy iPod pocket-really nice. The little loop for my headphones--awesome since I walk and jog with a partner I want music but also still want to be able to talk & hear. I adored the thuimbholes--until I found the nifty little flap that turned them into mittens-YAY!
                        This morning was 30 degrees and paired with the Versatile EZ long sleeve top, it was perfect.
