but creating this kind of euphoria can't be healthy or sustainable. I run up in the frozen tundra and usually take a winter running hiatus. Not just on Sundays when the packers play, but because it was so darn cold. The Utopia Thermal Hoodie II is warm enough for me to run in a stiff wind sub-30 degrees (and colder). I ran with it on for a Valentine's Day 5K and it kept me toasty on top through the race (it was 10degrees at the starting line). I could hear runners behind me complimenting my jacket (ponytail hole in the hood!). The pockets are deep and in a great spot angled a little more towards the front (not so far on your side that you have to twist to get something out).

The jacket seems very warm, but I ordered it on sale and expected it to be fully heathered (I got the purple). Instead, it has solid insets on the side and around the hood, at sort of ear-level. I'll keep it because it's what I need for an upcoming trip, but it's not NEARLY as pretty as the plain heather that's shown in the photo!

      Comments about Utopia Thermal Hoodie II:

      I needed a jacket for running in cold weather (20-40 degrees) so I ordered this hoodie. When I opened the package, I wasn't too sure it would work. I almost returned it, but Brooks has never failed me before so I gave it a try, and I am glad I did.

      The hoodie was comfortable and kept me warm on my run today in 30 degree weather. All I had underneath was a compression shirt. I might need a windproof jacket over this if the windchill is below 20 degrees. Otherwise, this hoodie gets the job done!

        Perfect running jacket for cold Bend, OR mornings. I was fine 1 morning in an Under Armour cold gear shirt and this coat. It was less than 10 degrees. It is also great for a 50 degree run. I'm tall and like the length. The pink color was better in person. Great reflective embellishments.

          This has become my favorite jacket. I love the thumbholes, they really help keep my hands warm. This jacket is stylish- I get a lot of compliments on it. It is light, has bit of stretch to the material, and is perfect for fall training runs.

            I'm 5'0" and the XS fits nice in length, shoulder and chest area with the exception for the arm length, extendeds about 2" pass my wrist. However, it warms my hands nicely in cold and windy weather runs.

                    I have the Utopia Thermal tights and wanted to invest in an upper body equivalent for outdoor cold weather running. I love everything about this hoodie except the ponytail hole which I find to never quite work with the way I put my hair up.

                      I use this to and from the gym, and during outdoor running. This is warm enough to just wear a small layer underneath while running in 30-40 degree temps. I love the cell phone pocket. I bought my regular size in this jacket and it fits like a glove. love love love

                          This is a warm, comfortable, highly versitle running top.
                          Pockets, thumb holes, hood, and zipper are all excellent.
                          I can wear it for a morning run and then work all day with it on.
                          Or I can wear it all day at work and head out the door for an afternoon run.
                          The fabric is thick and plush. It does tend to hold my body odor. I have this problem with most polyester type fabrics. I am 5"6, 130 lbs, small upper body (32 A). I was in between sizes and ended up getting the medium. Not as form fitting in my torso, but I like the way it lays on my hips better than the small. No cold air gets in while running b/c of looser fit.
