      Comments about Utopia Softshell II:

      Purchased running gear online for the first time. Have a Brooks lighter weight jacket in the same line in a large so I ordered the same size. Way too tight. Based on what I saw it would have been the right jacket for me however it looked like an ex-large would have been too long in the sleeve.I returned it immediately.

        I needed a jacket for winter running. This jacket is lightweight but warm, even in sub-zero wind chills. I got an XL because the L was too tight, even though all of my other shirts and jackets are L.

          I like to use this product when it's cold out for running. This product works so well that I got a second one (one for my DC apartment, another for my DE house). It's a snug fit, which I like. I typically wear a breathable lycra layer underneath, and it keeps me warm and insulated against the chill. I love the extra hand protection as well. Spares me from wearing gloves. Jacket has a well-positioned phone pocket on the chest which allows me to listen to tunes while running. Haven't tried it for cycling yet, but it's on my to-do list.

          This is a pretty good jacket for winter running. I use it in 25 degrees and below. It keeps me warm, but it's not quite as breathable as I'd like. The fit is great and it's very comfortable. It'll keep you warm with just a t-shirt underneath down to 0-5 degrees.

          The sleeve is a bit long if you wear gloves with it and the two get bunched up a bit.

            I bought this jacket hoping that it would be a nice addition to my arsenal of running wardrobe. I have not seen it in stores, so it was a blind purchase. When I got it, I was pleasantly surprised. It fits really well and looks amazing. I found myself wearing it for everyday purposes. It does keep you warm, yet still breathes well. The cuffs have mittens that fold out for cold weather, which is a nice benefit. The cut of the jacket is "fitted" and holds close to the body. The front pockets are small but usable. The outer material is weather (wind and rain) resistant (could be weather proof...have not tested it yet).

            Overall, I could not be happier with this jacket.

              Comments about Utopia Softshell II:

              After a few seasons of searching for the perfect winter running jacket, Brooks has produced exactly what I've been looking for. This jacket integrates everything one would want in a reliable cold weather coat.

              The jacket looks and feels to be as light as typical windbreaker, but the hidden insulation is a welcomed surprise the first time you go out in the cold air. The seams of the soft shell material intricately wrap the upper body, allowing the runner to maintain perfect mobility and range of motion for intervals, long runs, and everything in-between.

              The built in fleece mittens are an unexpected, but nevertheless helpful addition for the days where gloves aren't quite in order, but some protection from the cold is necessary. Four large, yet discrete pockets, including one for an electronic music player also allow you to take any important items on any cold run.

              The zipper is also noteworthy, as purchasing any piece of apparel with a zipper can raise some concern with the lifespan of a product. This zipper should raise no cause for alarm, as the metal and high quality plastic components perform without flaw in any temperature.

              In short, this is a fantastic jacket for any runner who wants to stay comfortably warm, no matter the temperature outside. The coldest run I have personally undertaken with this jacket was a balmy -7 (F) and with only one base layer, I felt toasty the whole time. My years of searching for a perfect outdoor running jacket for the winter seasons has finally come to a close. Thank you Brooks!
