Changing seasons means a chillier commute (not more time on the couch). We designed this jacket to help keep out the cold when we're going from home to work to workout. We finished it with Durable Water Repellant (DWR) and added a stowable, adjustable hood for extra protection when we're out in the elements.

Too much going on
I live in San Diego. It is currently 61 degrees and I was actually cold while wearing this jacket. Since when does breathability mean 4 giant vent pockets and a fifth taking up half the jacket, the vent pockets are hidden beneath the fabric. I can't believe I spent $170 on a jacket that doesn't keep you warm in 60 degree weather with wind. Have to stop with thumb hole loops on mens products. It is feminine, strange, and not functional. It also rained the other day and this jacket will not do you any good in anything except an extremely light drizzle. I wish could return it. Very close to finally giving up on this company. oh yea, there are also random vent pockets on the side of the chest that open the jacket and expose you to the elements... pointless. Apparently "Breathability" has gone to a whole new level where they barley make a jacket out of fabric.

Great first impressions, fits bit small
I've been very happy with the first impressions with this jacket. Very comfortable, light and breathes well. I like how the hood isn't small and unusable, and the jacket is well proportioned in its fit. Looks great as always.
My only downside is that it seems to fit smaller than other Lululemon tops. I have many other medium tops that fit great so I didn't hesitate to order a medium in this jacket online, but in hindsight would have preferred a large. Maybe its just the intended fit of the jacket, and maybe I should have been more vigilant before buying, but I'd recommend to double check sizing first.

Awesome Jacket.. bad quality
I bought this for my boyfriend for his birthday last week he loves it and has worn it several times in the last week. The problem is it is already pilling by the pockets and at the neck. Very mad I spent a lot of money for poor quality!

Jacket started to pill after 2-3 weeks
I got this jacket in houndstooth swift black for to-and-from as it?s advertised, and that?s how I?ve been using it.
The jacket looks great and I?ve got a few compliments on it. Love the houndstooth pattern.
However, the fabric is pilling on the outside, back, of the jacket and it?s quite unsightly. This happened after about 2-3 weeks of wear. The pilling would be annoying enough on a sweater, but I?ve never seen the back of a jacket pill.
Very disappointed, especially considering the price tag.

No delay, buy the Relay!
This lightweight jacket is beautiful! Let's start with the build, the stitching is excellent, probably my favorite attribute of LL's products.
More than enough vents allow your body to breath.
Pockets are spacious and hidden, maintaining a sleek profile.
The hood is the best part! Draping just over the head, not too little or too much fabric, cut just enough to make you feel like the character from Assassin's Creed when you rock the jacket!
