Stride Jacket II
Much better jacket than nice asana and other longer jackets. Running more loose than the latter and sleeves are shorter- the thumbholes are fantastic. Quality is great, just didn't fit my shorter frame and I already have too many nice asanas from numerous sales. Coco pique fabric is thinner than my WUP from last year, but definitely great fabric- soft, textured, and getting better and better as it fluffs up after washes. Highly recommend!

Cozy and high quality
I got this in the burgundy colour with spots. I love the length and the jacket is quite heavy but at the same time the material is not overly thick. It is nice and warm but not overly so. It is very comfortable and flattering and I love the colour and detail. I also like the thumbholes. If you like things fitted, I would size down but I liked it in my usual size. The band at the bottom is the tightest part.

LOVVVE FOR US Tall ladies
This is a must have for us tall ladies who would like to cover a bit more of our assets. Most jackets hit me really high and I have to wear a long shirt under them to hide. This one is perfect and super soft and flattering. I have it in black and i want to grab more colors.
I'm 6'0 and it just covers most of the tush area. LOVE

Great Jacket! Horrible Zipper!!!
I love this jacket! It's nice and soft. I got the mojave tan. The fit is not too snug and not to loose either. The jacket is a keeper for me, BUT what is the deal with the horrid, horrid zipper? You have to keep on fiddling with it, just to open the darn thing! For the price, I'd expect that I would be able to zip it up or open it, without worrying whether I'd break it! My old define jackets zippers are in a much better condition. Just for this, I am still on the fence if I'd send it back.

With cold weather approaching fast the Stride Jacket II became the first thing I've grabbed heading out the door.
Has been an absolute treasure for taking to the stable with me and bringing in horses! Keeps the wind out of my face, my cheeks from freezing and doesn't roll up from around the hips! - Yes, it does fit snug around the hips and I love it!
True to size, I did not find it skin-tight.
LOVE the fit, feel and design!! Definitely my favourite jacket in the closet!

A return to quality!!!
I recently picked up this sweater in store in the heathered black colour and I am very pleased to see that my new Stride Jacket looks and feels the same as my Stride Jackets from a few years ago. If you are missing the old quality of Lululemon products, you should definitely go for this sweater! The material of the heathered colours is so soft! The jacket is a perfect weight and the hood is heavy but doesn't weigh it down. Also, the colour I picked up has a goldish colour zipper that makes for a nice contrast from the rest of the jacket. I normally wear a size 8 in Lululemon clothing and the size 8 fits perfectly in this. However, if you prefer a tighter look, I would recommend sizing down.

DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM
To be honest, I struggle a bit with paying a large amount of money for cloths that I work out in- why not just get the cheaper stuff from target?! I went out on a limb and shopped at lulu to see what all the fuss was about. Truth be told, I liked my expirience- staff was helpful and friendly, and all the clothing seemed to be great quality and fit. I ended up spending a few hundred on an outfit I really loved (despite it being more than 2/3rd what I'd like to spend!). I figured with the look and feel of the items it was well worth it. Unfortunately I was wrong. I had enjoyed this hoodie for a little over a month (meaning 3 or 4 wears out of it) when the zipper broke at the bottom! Of course I no longer had a receipt and was forced to throw it out. What a waste of $118. Had the zipper not broke it would be great- soft, stretchy and easy wearing. But for the cooler temperature area that I live in a broken zipper makes it useless. I had only washed it once, and I'm not sure if that's the cause of the zipper breaking but if so that is also disappointing. Workout cloths/clothing to layer over workout cloths clearly needs to be washed and a zipper should with stand that! Save your money, don't buy this item.

Mojave tan is so so soft
I recently bought this stride jacket for a long plane ride. Its so cozy and soft. Some of the other luon colors are not as soft, just as a warning. I tried the heathered black and it wasn't as soft.
I got this in a size 8. I am a 32E, 140 lb, and 5'9". I could fit in the 6 but I prefer a looser fit for my hips and shoulders since I wear this jacket casually and not with a sports bra. I love the hoodie and style of this jacket. Really happy I bought it.

I have quite a few Daily Yoga and Contempo jackets and had not had a Stride before this Jacket. I love the length and the material and find it to be a great weight for multiple climates.
I will say that I had purchased the lighter gray Stride when it first came out and when the heathered gray Stride came out I had to have it as well, my only complaint was that the light gray had draw strings on the hood and the heathered gray did not have draw strings? What gives?

YAY! the stride is back!!!!!!
The stride jacket was my favourite - still wear my old one from years ago and still love it. So obviously was very happy to see it back.
Material is thinner than the original, however I find the fit to be very similar. Fits TTS in my opinion.
Got it in grey - hoping for more colours!
