Fast & Free Jacket
This jacket was my first Lulu product, and so far, I really like it a lot! I wanted to write a review because I felt like all the reviews helped me decide that I should just go for it and buy the jacket.
Lots of pockets
Very slimming cut/style
The only gripe I have about the jacket is that fabric feels somewhat "plasticy," as another poster mentioned. Otherwise, the jacket is easy to wear.
I bought the black jacket and really like that it's not very see-through. I liked the jacket so much that I also bought the white one. However, as much as I like the detailing of the white jacket, I feel that it is too transparent, so I plan to return it.
As for size, I think the jacket is true to size.

Nice, but not perfect
I really like the detailing on this jacket, the ruffle on the back is cute and it's great to have a hood. I also really like the sheer details on the pocket and other portions of the jacket. I wanted to love the jacket, but was sadly disappointed with the fit and fabric. The jacket is cut longer than others (nice) but seemed to be cut disproportionately wider on the bottom in comparison to the shoulders/armpits. I'm a slim build and don't have muscular shoulders or arms, but the armpits felt like they were cut too small and pulling under the armpit area. Not sure if this is a shoulder or armhole fit issue. The fabric is also plastic-y feeling, not breathable and feels like it would cause sweating, especially with tight fitting arms. Couldn't see comfortably running with this if you're going to move your arms a lot. Sizing up to a 6 the arms were more comfortable, but the sleeves and entire fit of the jacket was too big and looked like wearing someone else's clothes. Really wanted to love this jacket and was so excited when I saw it, but having the "Run: Nothing to Hide" jacket and the other one very similar to it from last summer or the summer before, think I expected too much. The fabric, fit and styling from past iterations was far superior. I really do like the styling details though, and hope lulu will continue to incorporate those details, just with better fabrics/fit. I would still recommend the jacket if the fit works for you, it is cute.

Functional and cute
This jacket is an excellent warm weather throw on when the wind comes up or it's cool in mornings. I'm 5'9, 130 lbs and wear a size 4 or 6 in lulu everything. To my surprise because this never happens with lulu (hence my closet FULL of lulu), I found the sleeves were short! Ugh. Hate short sleeves. Bought a size 6 anyway, and sure enough the short sleeves irritate me a bit. Oh well, jacket is cute & goes with all my lulu tanks and crops so will deal with it.

Lightweight Fabric - Heavyweight Style/Detail
I wasn't sure if I would get good use of a jacket with such lightweight material and the big price tag really made me think hard about it before I bought it. I am very glad I did!!! I took it with me (rolled up in my purse) to an outdoor event where the weather was warm but later on it started to rain and got very windy. The jacket was perfect keeping me dry and warm. It reallyh helped having the longer scallopped coverage over the butt, love that detail. There is enough stretchyness in the mesh panels that give movement to the jacket. The placement of reflective fabric is great plus it also adds a touch of another color to make it stand out.
What really makes me happy with a LLL purchase is when I get great function along with great style and detail plus something that is just a little bit different. That's when I don't mind spending more for that product.
I only wish you would do the same with running shorts. Give me good function i.e. (4way stretch, good length, supportive waistband) then add some cute detail. When I say detail I don't mean darts/pockets in front I mean detail such as adding reflective fabric to a seam or adding flat-pleated panels along the sides. Those little details are the reason I got hooked on LLL but you just don't make them like you used to...

I bought this the other day with the idea in mind that it could be used for a light rain jacket or windbreaker (and it can totally be worn like that!) but I've also found that its great for runs when you want a little coverage but it's not really chilly out! I bought it in white, in my usual size, it fits TTS.
I just have one question! In store the guy casually mentioned the usual washing instructions but I was buying a lot of other items at the time, so I was just wondering how to wash this jacket? I'm leaning towards spot or hand washing it when it becomes necessary.

High quality beautiful detailing (stretchy mesh inserts, reflective tape, ruffle, zip pocket.
Sometimes I order a size up for shoulders, arms and length. I didn't need to for this jacket because it fits in all the right places. You can customize the fit with the back cinch.
At 5'6", the size 8 clears my hips in the back.
It is lightweight. I wear it over a thin long sleeve top.

Great Jacket, FINALLY GREAT FIT
I love Lululemon, but some of the stuff that they have brought out in the last few years fits odd, either too tight in the chest, arms or body, and for a while there everything was too short in the body. This jacket fits great, no problems zipping, arms fit nice and the body of the jacket fit nice. I have a normal build. I am not bigger in the shoulders, avg height (5'6") and a normal size 8 in jackets and pants. This jacket is awesome!!! Thanks!

Beautiful and functional jacket!
I LOVE this jacket! It is very lightweight and perfect for walking or running during hot muggy nights or days. I dislike using sunscreen and bug sprays and choose to use light coverups / jackets instead. This jacket is light enough to be comfortable even in the hottest of weather.
Construction wise, the cut is very flattering and the cinch in the back is a great detail. I am 5 ft 4 in, around 120 lbs, and the size 4 offers a fit that allows for a bit more than a tank underneath if necessary. I have not worn the jacket in rain yet, but look forward to giving it a test drive in wetter conditions.
BEST JACKET FOR SUMMER! Thank you for such a well thought out product for those of us who want a light, but pretty, jacket for our summer activities.
