Spring Forward Jacket
I just got this jacket today - it is fabulous!! Definitely my favourite Lulu item that I have ordered in awhile. I live in the Pacific Northwest and this jacket is the perfect weight/ warmth for Fall and Winter...I can actually see it being a bit too warm in the Spring.
I was debating what size to order, but based on the other reviews I went with a 6 (I'm 5'8, 128lbs...usually a 4 or 6 in Lulu) - glad that I did. I find it to be quite fitted thru the shoulders and bust, but in a flattering (not restrictive) way.
If you are debating this - go for it!! It's a great buy at the WMTM price and is an awesome staple piece for winter workouts.

Spring forward jacket
I love this jacket. The hidden hood, the beautiful detail on the shoulders, the wrist covers, the adjustability of the back. It's flattering, comfortable and perfect for gym wear, shopping everywhere!

Love love love!
This jacket is awesome. It fits true to size and really well! It feels and looks great on and drawstring makes it even more flattering allowing you to customize the fit. I love the option of folding in the hood or unzipping it. Sometimes a hood can get in the way during a run so it's nice to be able to tuck it away, or have it out if you get caught in the rain. The thumb holes and cuffing are E greatest and should be on every jacket! I would definitely recommend snatching this jacket up while it's on sale!
For reference I am 5'5" and 128lbs with an athletic build

Outstanding Quality and Style
The quality, functionality and fit of this running jacket are impeccable. Tired of the shapeless bags that most brands put off as running 'jackets' these days, I spotted this one online. The fit is perfectly true to size, sleek and flattering. The material is sturdy but light. What you cannot see from the pictures online is that the jacket has a fabulous warm lining, almost like a long sleeved shirt built into the jacket. Even on very cold days this can be worn with just a CRB and you are kept toasty warm. The Cuffins are another great feature which I've used many times if it is not cold enough for mittens. Despite its warmth this jacket is it breathable and not heavy. I cannot think of anything not to love about it. The hood is great as well for if it is very windy. Worth every cent.

Head-turning and functional
I had a good feeling when I saw this jacket online and I wasn't disappointed. It's great! I've gained some weight after injuring myself and have been feeling insecure as I get back in shape. This jacket is so flattering, from the lovely lilac color to the comfortably fitted cut. I haven't tested it in any really wet weather, but it held up in drizzle and doesn't seem to pull or chafe with movement.

Wait till you try it on!!!!
To me this was the type of jacket I did not care at all when I saw it online... but then last week I decided to try it on in my local LLL store... and guess what, oh yes, it came home with me! Got it in kanoko twist inkwell ghost/inkwell, TTS my usual size 4. Super cute and a lot warmer than I thought!!!

Cute and Functional
Every time I order something from Lulu, that ends up being a home-run, I just have to leave a review. It's sort of silly that with all the money I spend here, I haven't gotten the chance to write MORE 5-star reviews.... but thats a story for another day.
This jacket is perfect. I've worn it running a few times since purchasing, and the fit and function is impeccable. I think it will be even more awesome for winter running, as it is on the denser side. Misty, cold, fall running- this is my go-to. Purple fog is MORE gorgeous in person- def a lil darker and more purpley (vs mauveish as it appears here). I sized up one size because my arms and back are athletic and I want to wear long sleeve layers underneath in the winter. The adjustable waist and general cut of this allow it to remain flattering w/o ever looking sloppy. Good job, Lulu!

Fell in love with this jacket
I saw this online and even with all the good reviews, I went to a nearby lulu store at the mall to try it on myself two days ago. The moment I tried it on, I fell in love with it.
I got the jacket in the purple fog color. The color is exactly like it is in the picture. Everything about this jacket is perfect. The inside of the jacket is warm. It's warm enough to be able to go on a run on a cold day without getting all sweaty. The details are just absolutely cute too. It's not just a plain rain jacket. I love the details of it and how you can have the hood of the jacket out of tucked in and zipped. This jacket goes with everything. From workout outfit to a casual outfit.
For reference, I'm 5'4" and weigh 100. All of my jackets from lululemon are all size 4. They all fit perfectly. And what I mean by that is it's just a perfect fit, not too tight and not too loose.

Love this jacket!
This jacket is fantastic. Fits TTS, bought in my usual Lulu size 8, and with the drawstring it's very flattering. This is my go to jacket this fall for runs and to and from, and I love the inkwell pattern. I've worn it on a few runs and it really does block out the wind. It's kept me warm on 40 degree runs with a LS swiftly underneath, and I can probably wear this into the mid 30s with another layer underneath. Fantastic deep pockets to hold essentials, though I still keep my phone in my pants pocket as I found it tends to bounce a bit in the jacket pocket during a run.

love this jacket!
Love, love this jacket. Bought it in black with the reflective stripes to use for running and for a to and from jacket. I've been wearing it almost everyday since fall started here in Canada, and the only complain I have is that it's a little tight in the shoulders with a sweater underneath, even though it fits perfectly everywhere else. Huge pockets, love the cinching elastic waist cause I'm on the small side. I walk or run almost everywhere and this jacket is perfect for it. I'm about 5'5" and 115lbs and the size 4 fit me perfectly. Looks cute with jeans for walking around, or sweats or leggings to and from the gym.
