Spring Forward Jacket
LOVE LOVE LOVE
I was ecstatic when this jacket went on sale in WMTM, and was able to buy it in the purple colour that I coveted. Not only is the jacket beautiful, but it has every feature I could want in a running jacket, as well as so many extra details that seriously enhance my runs.
The headphone cord management negates my need to wear an armband (which threw off my gait). There is a tight pocket inside the pocket that holds my cell phone and stops it from bouncing around in my pocket. Some have complained that the hood is too bulky when rolled up, and although it is slightly bulky it does not bother me. I prefer to have the hood out, and it is the first jacket I've had where the hood didn't bother me on windy runs. I wear the jacket in -25 weather and it has been warm enough as long as I layer properly (there is plenty of room to layer up, and the waist cinch prevents it from looking frumpy).The cuffins have come in handy many times. The jacket is tighter fitting in the chest as many have said, but if you order the appropriate size it should not be a problem. I ordered my usual size 6 and with a 32 E chest it is still comfortable. I wear this jacket every day to run, as well as to-and-from.
The only thing I would add is more reflective detailing for more visibility at night. Other than that I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful jacket.

Fits perfect for jogging and cycling
I love the fit, not too snug, fits great, I am on the short side under 5 feet. I'm not slim, but not chubby, I have a few extra pounds.
"The jacket is warm, but breathable, and I am wearing it for cycling, jogging and errands. As you can tell I love this jacket, I wish I had purchased at least 2!

This coat looks awesome. Very flattering and pretty. It is decently thick too. It could be worn in spring and fall definitely, and in winter on a warmer day. It would be a great jacket for running or running around town. Good work LLL !

So happy, I finally own this. Waited for this to go on WMTM. At $99 I waited some more. Finally down to $79 (I knew it). Luckily my size still available. Love everything about this jacket except when you unzip to expose hood looks funny with 3 zipper tabs on one side and 1 on the other. Am I missing something? Don't think I will use the hood because of this. Still happy. Love love love. True to size, I am 5'2 and 109 pounds. The blue is lovely.

Love this jacket
I got this jacket on WMTM and it's really worth the price. It has a great shape and I love the pattern (I have inkwell), the length is right, and it has some really nice features. I like that it has a hood for very cold days as well as the cuffins. This is a very warm jacket but it's breathable so you can wear it for a real big range of temperatures. I've worn it to run from +5C to -30C with just one shirt under and it keeps me warm without overheating. Since I wear it running I wash it often and it holds up well. There is only one improvement that could be made which would be to make the neck go up higher in the front for cold days.

My new favorite jacket
I put this on my Christmas wish list back a couple months ago but was convinced I was not going to get it so I went to the local store to try on sizes when it was sold out in the black/white print color I loved. I went home disappointed. Here I am a few days after Christmas and now a jacket owner! My sister had grabbed one for me. I have worn it several times thus far. It is definitely a warmer jacket. I went on a run in 50 degree weather in the south with a tank top underneath and wanted to peel away the jacket. I will mainly use it for walking the dog in Idaho. It will make a good wind breaker - especially the way the cuffs lay and work as mittens. I think it is best for cold weather (but not bitter cold). I cannot wait to live in this for the rest of the season!

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.
