I bought this jacket for the pockets, color & weather protection. The first time I wore it there was a January breeze. My arms get cold easily. I wore a short sleeve Brooks tech shirt underneath & my arms stayed warm. I really like the dedicated waterproof phone pocket on the inside. The pocket holds my iphone perfectly. The 2 outside zipper pockets are big enough to hold a real set of car keys, cash and nutrition. The jacket is definitely a good investment, it's lightweight but warm. I haven't had the chance to test in the rain yet.

I love the jacket. I needed something "waterproof/resistant" for running in WA state. It's REALLY wet here and thought I'd give this a try. I wore it to my half marathon where it RAINED. It was comfortable, breathable, and reflected well. It blocked most of the wind but the rain went right through it. It would work better if it were a mere drizzle but wasn't helpful during true rain season here. I'm holding on to it but will still search for a more true "water resistant/water proof" jacket.

    I love my new jacket! First running jacket I have ever purchased and I am very happy with it. It has kept me dry even in a down pour. Works best in temps less than 40. A bit tight through the shoulders, but able to move my arms without issue. Highly recommend this jacket.

      Love this jacket!!! I have it in 7 different colors. Great for running and for casual wear. Blocks the wind. It is water resistant but not waterproof so you'd be fine in a light mist with it on. Great fall jacket or in winter with another layer underneath. Great colors this fall too!

            I wear a Medium in Brook's long sleeve jerseys. This jacket fit well in the body but the sleeve length and shoulder width was too narrow / short in the jacket. I do have broad shoulders and long arms so the fit was not unusual. I moved up to a large. Great jacket however.

              I love my jacket, it's light enough to wear without having too much on--looks cute so if I have it on to go out for errands it doesn't look like a big neon sign screaming "RUNNER" wherever I go (I have a couple of cycing jackets that I could never wear for anything but sports for that reason) The color is cute and it seems to be just the right weight.
              It does fit a bit small so I have to be careful to not swing the arms too much or I could rip out a few seams.

                  I use this product for runnning in the Midwest, where it is frequently cold, drizzly, or windy. This jacket is great at keeping the wind out and the rain off. I use it for winter running with a layer underneath and have stayed warm. I am also rather tall (5'10") and the sleeves are long enough, which I really appreciate.

                    I was looking for a lightweight yet warm coat to wear over under-layers for running in the winter. It's a little thin so spring and late fall wear is probably best for this coat but I will use it anyways this winter. The only flaw is when I got warm and unzipped the collar and folded it over I kept getting hit in the face with the one side of the collar - other than that I like the coat and would recommend it!
