Great, lightweight jacket

I live in (mostly) sunny Southern California, so it doesn't rain here a lot, but when it does, it REALLY rains. I was tired of coming home from my runs completely soaked to the skin, even when wearing other "water resistant" running jackets.

I live in (mostly) sunny Southern California, so it doesn't rain here a lot, but when it does, it REALLY rains. I was tired of coming home from my runs completely soaked to the skin, even when wearing other "water resistant" running jackets. I debated buying this jacket for a really long time because of the price and because the only color available at the time was solid black (I run very early and need reflective outerwear), but then I saw the stories about Desi Linden and Boston and this jacket, so I finally made the purchase; I wish I'd done it sooner. It's lightweight enough that I can wear it with shorts and a tee shirt if we get warm rainy day, but it's also great to block wind/chill with a long sleeve shirt underneath on colder days. It's a little smaller/tighter across my stomach than I'd like, but it has a little bit of stretch to it, so I can live with that because of all of its other great qualities. Read More

My go-to winter jacket

I dig this jacket!! I bought it on the Black Friday Sale and even then I cringed at the price but it is amazing! I got it as a rain jacket but with a heavier base layer on it works fabulous for winter running down to the teens and below. I even caught the lip on a sidewalk and had a pretty major fall with stitches involved and the jacket didn't have a scratch on it!! I was shocked since it…

Buy this jacket!

I bought this after suffering through Boston 2018 and saw this was the jacket that kept Desi dry(ish!) It doesn't get cold enough in South Texas to wear jackets frequently, but this morning was super cold and windy! I stayed comfortable but didn't get too warm. The jacket is light and breathable. I hope I don't need it for Boston 2019, though!

Wish I had this for Boston

After the Boston Marathon, I read that this was the jacket Desi Linden wore. I promptly bought it and the day after it arrived, it rained so I gave it a try. I stayed warm and dry - the rain pilled up nicely. It wasn't raining nearly as hard as in Boston so I'm still waiting for the true test. So far, so good though! I hope I don't need it next year...
