I wore my Lite Jacket III for the duration of a full marathon in the pouring rain this past weekend. While it didn't keep me completely dry -- nothing could have! -- I was comfortable, and it was perfect for keeping the chill off.

It packs down so compactly and is so lightweight, I will probably run with it for any long distance runs when the chance of rain is over 50%.

I have two minor quibbles about the jacket. First, the plastic zipper looks a little flimsy. I fear it won't hold up for long. Secondly, there are no side pockets. This would be very useful for holding gels, gloves, waterlogged socks that you can't bear to run in any longer, etc.

Apart from that, I absolutely love this jacket and I'm pondering buying a second one!

This jacket was a bit surprising. Very lightweight--which is fine, but it made me wonder how it'll hold up in the rain. I'm near Portland, OR, and I run in the rain, so time will tell. That's why only 3 stars--all the data aren't in yet. Also, I wish the hood was removable--it gets a bit annoying when running on a windy day. Seems like the jacket does keep the wind off, though.

    Comments about LSD Lite Jacket III:

    This is super lightweight, but I ran in 15ºF weather and was perfectly warm. It has flexible cords to pull it tight, but the rear flap means its breathes as well. The hoodie fits snuggly around your face, unlike any I've tried, and really blocks out wind.

            Great for damp mornings at the lake and walking/running/hiking in light rain when it's cool or warm. Featherweight. Good that hood's adjustable or it would cover my eyes.

              first time I wore this I ran a 15k in the rain, 34 degrees F and windy. When I finished, I was wet, but it did a dang good job all things considering. I did not overheat in it and the wind did not chill me. Best used in light rain or wind but I will wear it in a downpour again.

                  Comments about LSD Lite Jacket III:

                  I was looking for a jacket that could hold its own on cool, windy, rainy runs (or any combination of the three). I also wanted a jacket to go as my outer layer on cold days to keep the wind and moisture out. When I first tried on this jacket I knew that it wouldn't work. It's just too thin and light to do any good, right? I went home and read some reviews and decided to give it a try and I'm so that that I did! The fit is great and I really like that you can tighten the bottom of the jacket and the hood and the sleeves are nice and tight to keep all of the weather out. This jacket does an amazing job at keeping cold wind at bay. I've worn it in rain, ice, and snow, and always end up warm and dry underneath which is great. I haven't ever wore a running jacket with a hood and when it's not on it is slightly annoying, especially in a lot of wind. It seems to flap around quite a bit. But, when it's on it makes it all worth it. It really does a great job keeping my head and ears dry and warm. With the hood cinched up all the way (which can be done easily with one hand on the run) it doesn't block your vision or peripheral vision at all. I am very pleased with this jacket and so glad I gave it a try. I am 6'2" and about 170 pounds and went with a size medium and it seems to fit just about perfectly.

                        Ultra-light jackets like this one are great for conditions like "temp would be OK if it wasn't windy", or "cold but not below freezing". And they're ideal for times when you want a jacket until you've warmed-up. Then you can take it off, twirl it and tie it around your waist.. unlike bulkier/heavier jackets, these are so light and thin you won't know they're there.

                        I have several brands of ultra-light jackets, and I like the Brooks version for it's back ventilation design. I don't like the hood... I feel it's unnecessary because I prefer hats, and it just adds unneeded bulk.

                          I bought this jacket from Brooks, because of their high quality products, that continue to come through for me. The price was right, the fit is good, and the most important part, is that is does what I need - keeps me warm and keeps the wind off of me. It also looks good! Lol! I use this jacket for running in colder weather, and haven't found anything about it, that I don't like. One really nice feature is that it folds up into its own pocket, and comes out nice and small, for easy carrying. Keep up the good work, Brooks!!
