Spring Forward Jacket
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.

This is an AWESOME jacket! It is pricey, but its worth it. I find it to fit TTS. I tried on one size down in store and found it to fit well everywhere except for under the arms. My TTS was MUCH more comfortable and I can easily fit a rulu base layer underneath. I would not recommend sizing up. Even though this jacket is quite thin, its surprisingly warm. The hood rolls up into the collar which does feel kind of thick then, but I actually thought it was nice that it was thick because it kept my neck warm. Love the drawstring along the back which adds a little shape to the jacket. Very happy with my purchase! I purchased the purple fog color and found it to be a little darker than in the photo, but very pretty.

The best light jacket ever!
Love the design, fabric and details of this spring jacket - prob the best I have ever have! I normally get size 8 for Lulu and there is no exception for this one as well - it fits true to size. It is now my everyday jacket (until the weather starts getting colder). I have also tried to wear this jacket to the office - with nice top and trouser, no one can tell I was wearing a gym jacket! Very happy with the purchase!

Pretty but not for running
This jacket is flattering and comfortable. I purchased this to use as a running/work out jacket as well as to wear it as a to-and-from jacket.
It isn't ideal for running/work outs. It's not breathable and the moisture remains in the jacket. With the hoodie rolled up and the collar upright, it feels gross when it's damp from your run.
I really really wanted to like this jacket, but realizing it's not really a performance jacket was disheartening. I had to double check the site to see if it was designed for run or to-and-from!

My go to jacket.
I love this jacket for chilly runs. It's light weight but keeps me warm. It's perfect for 40-60 degree weather. I like that it's loose, but it's just a little to tight under the arm pit. I strongly dislike the zipper, looks cheap. Other than that this jackets super cute! I love to pair it with my full on luons :). Worth the investment!

Great outer layer jacket, keeps the wind out and sits down at top of the thigh level on me (5'1") I sized up in this because I found the arms a bit tight with another layer underneath. I like the way it's adjustable around the waist to give it more or less shape if you want to.
