Miss Misty Pullover
Love this Jacket!
This jacket is great. It's not waterproof, so it won't keep you completely dry, but it's water resistant, and holds off drizzle for quite some time. I ran a marathon in this with steady rain, and it kept me dry until about mile 20.
The pocket within the pocket on the right side perfectly fits my iphone, it also holds my race day fuel in place without jiggling. I LOVE the cinch bottom and cinch hood - really a great jacket!
I sized down (am usually a 4 in tops), but mostly because I liked it a little shorter.

Pullover is a bit baggy in the stomach area in my true to size, but a size down was too tight in the shoulders. It was comfortable to run in, the hood actually stayed place, but its NOT water-resistant. I was told by an educator in the store that this pullover would be good for running in the rain, so I bought it and used it for a rainy 5k this weekend. I had my iPhone 5 in the zipped pocket for emergency (I was there alone) and my phone was ruined. If I can't use a "water-resistant" pullover in the rain, what good is it really? So disappointed, $128 spent on the pullover and $200 to replace my phone! I wish I could return this because I won't be using it in the rain anymore.

Make this cut in an absorbent material please!
I love the cut of this! Longer, not too tight (room to layer a swiftly under) BUT the material is not absorbent and not water repellent. Make in a fabric like Swift Ultra and it will be perfect!

Adorable, not entirely functional
I think this jacket is very cute, and has some great features. I like all the pockets, how lightweight it is, and how small it can become to fit into a backpack easily and quickly. That said, I bought it to wear while bike commuting, and it does little to block out the wind or rain. I have ridden with it in light rain as well as heavy rain, and it doesn't hold up too well against either. And while the panels in the sleeves are very breathable (great when on my bike in a humid light rain situation), they let all the wind through. So while the pattern is cute, I will be purchasing another jacket for this purpose in the not-too-distance future.

Perfect Light Weight Rain Jacket
Ordered this back in August for a lightweight rain/hiking/camping jacket and have used it tons since. LOVE the fit of this jacket. It's NOT 100% waterproof but has really held up on both runs and rainy hikes for me. It's breathable which is nice since sometimes the mist is a warm one. I'm 6'0 143 and my TTS 6 fit like a glove. That said I have very narrow shoulders so I could see how someone with broader shoulders may find this a bit snug. Great jacket - have gotten lots of wear out of it already!

I was SSSSSOOOOOOO excited when I heard this pullover was coming out. I stocked the website and my local stores. I FINALLY got to pick up a couple in two different colours. I did try it on in the store and I was tossed. I WANTED to love it, but I just couldn't. The material feels and looks super cheap and so do the zippers. If you ever encountered a tree branch, I am sure the jacket would tear.
I was hoping this pullover was going to replace the Pack & Go, but no go! :( SUPER SAD FACE!!!!!!

I really wanted to like this, but....
I really liked this jacket until I wore it in the rain. I ran with this jacket in what started as a light rain and developed into a more moderate rain. It was not raining hard or heavy, and yet, my shoulders, chest, and upper back were completely soaked in under 1 mile. I bought this to run in the rain, and as a rain jacket it is a complete failure unless you only plan on running in a very light mist for a short run. Needless to say, I am not pleased and this jacket is an utter disappointment. I have plenty of non-rain jackets and don't need another. Do NOT buy this jacket if you plan on using it in the rain. Go buy a rain jacket from Brooks, Nike, or Under Armor because at least you'll be able to return it if it turns out not being water resistant.
I typically am a 4 in Lulu shirts and an occasional 6. I bought this in a 6 because I have broad shoulders and am glad I sized up. The jacket is not tight around my hips at all. I'm 5'4 and it falls a few inches below my hip bone. I like the fit of it. It's roomy and can be used as a top layer. If you need a light weight jacket this jacket is fine, but don't expect to remain dry at all in the rain. Of course, if you just need a light half zip jacket or a top layer, there are plenty of cheaper options like the race your pace half zip jacket.

the only thing i loved about this was the pattern (exploded star) and the fact that its lightweight with a hood. the fit is odd. i tried 3 different sizes and in order to get it comfortable through my armpits i had to have a bunch of excessive fabric and bulk in the midsection. i am 5'10 126lbs with a flat belly and my husband told me i looked pregnant in it. the cinch does not help, it creates a ruffle around your hips. put the cinch around the bottom like a standard wind breaker and you might have something here. please make this better or make a different jacket in the exploded star pattern... i'm begging!

Not so great for my body type
I ordered this for running in the Seattle rain. I really like the fabric and colors, but the fit doesn't quite work for my body type. It is fitted in the shoulders, a little too tight around the hips, but too baggy and puffy around the waist. The draw string doesn't help since it is around the hips where it is already snug. I wish I could tighten it at the waist instead of the hips. It was also hard to take off since it was tight around the shoulders and upper back. I wouldn't be able to stretch in it before or after my run. I also wouldn't be able to size up because then it would be huge around the waist. It'd love to see this redesigned so it would be more fitted for curvy body types, or just move the drawstring up to the waist. Why do I need a drawstring around the hips?? I did give this 4 stars because it would probably be great for girls with more straight body types.

awesome and adorable
I love this pullover so much! I wear it everywhere and get compliments on it all the time. I love how it can fold up into its pocket so it's easy to carry around. Not only does it keep me warm and dry, it is also stylish at the same time. The only problem is that its hard to take off because the arm pit area has no give to it.
