    Great jacket for light to moderarate rain. Have had it out in typical Seattle weather and it's kept me quite dry. It's a little warm above 60 degrees, but in the 40-60 degree light rain, it's perfect. True to fit, very visable, comfortable collar and sleeves.

      Comments about Nightlife Ess. Run Jacket II:

      I was interested in a good running jacket for cool and wet mornings here in Portland, so I ordered both a The North Face "Torpedo" and this Brooks jacket to compare the two. They happened to arrive on the day, so I literally compared them side-by-side. The decision was easy. The Brooks jacket had a sturdier zipper, nicer features, better and more refined sewing, better fit, and thicker/more substantial fabric.

          I have a different Brooks running jacket that is a couple of years old and fantastic. I ordered this jacket in the nightlife color to run and bike in the dark of winter. The material and styling were nice, but the fit is way off. The armholes and shoulders are way too 'fitted' and tight. Apparently, Brooks has updated their fit - and not for the better. The updated Infiniti jacket also has the same problem, so it seems to be their new 'fit'. Sadly, I had to return this jacket.

            I run ultra marathons. I have to get up early and run in the dark. Where I live it is very flat and no trails. I have to do most of my training on the streets. I want to be very visible when I am running at 3 and 4 am.

            Need to return it. Medium is too small. Would normally take this size.

              Jacket arrived just in time for my run on a rainy, windy day. The jacket is all that it was advertsed to be. I stayed dry & comfortable (upper body at least). I'm an old fart, so I was suspicious of such a lightweight fabric keeping me dry. It did. Thanks from a satisfied customer.

                Comments about Nightlife Ess. Run Jacket II:

                This jacket is great. The wind protection is superb. I regularly use it on runs below 30 degrees; as long as I have a base layer, this jacket keeps me warm by blocking out the elements while never making me too warm. I originally bought a medium, which fit my body, but the sleeves were too short, so I went with a large and am quite happy. And the color is so much brighter than in the picture (I have the orange one). Highly recommended.

                    I wear these jackets often, then machine wash and air dry. I have found that previous iterations of this Brooks jacket fray early, particularly the piping. I am hoping this wears better.
