Best Jacket Ever
I came across this jacket while browsing in the store and passed on it as I don't need another running jacket. After much thinking, I decided to purchase it and took it out for a run yesterday and it turned out to be the best running jacket ever. I wear a Swiftly short sleeve and the jacket and that keeps me warm in my early morning run in Vancouver. I own the jacket in "corn" (blue) colour and it is bright for running in the early morning and at night.

Just what I wanted!
I was looking for a light-weight rain jacket, and I had been looking for months. I almost walked out of the store 3 days ago again disappointed that I didn't find what I wanted, but I took one last look and found this jacket in the back of store on final sale. I couldn't believe it. I normally wear a size 2 but the 2 was a perfect fit and I was concerned I couldn't wear many layers with it, I bought the 4 to be safe. I got to wear the jacket last night it was in the lower 40s and I actually stayed very warm wearing just the jacket and a razorback. Overall I love this jacket so far!

I bought this jacket because I really needed a new rain jacket and something warmer for my runs. I love this jacket. It's so warm and soft. I got it in white and I am so happy with my purchase. It keeps me warm on my runs and I also love wearing it running errands.
I am 5'7" 140lbs and a retired college swimmer so I have a broad back and shoulders. I stuck with my usual lululemon top size which is an 8. I do have a small bust so if you have a bigger bust you probably want to size up. The only thing I don't like about it is the zipper. It zips but it catches easy on the fabric. You have to zip it up slow. Other than that LOVE IT.

brilliant running jacket
Awesome jacket great online purchase read other reviews and decided to go for it. Had been looking at a new running jacket from other stores for a while and then I read the reviews for this one. I bought the jacket in the blue! Lovely colour, its super soft, breathable, feels great around the neck and the arm length fits perfect. One of my reasons for loving lulu products is arm lenght. I am only 5 ft 7 but have very long arms and long legs so I am always disappointed with other stores as the thumb holes are useless. This coat is perfect. Yes the zip is sleek narrow and it has to be zipped up slowly but its smooth and doesn't seem to posea problem. The size is TTS I would say. I always buy an 8 and its the same as the rest of my lulu collection. Its not a tight fit but roomy indeed.

Perfect fall jacket
I stalked Lulu for months waiting for the perfect fall jacket; one that would keep me warm to/from the gym and at the start of my runs in the fall months, but had venting to get me through my runs without overheating. A waterproof exterior was a must, as was a hood (love that this one can be hidden), thumbholes, and cuffins. I gave it 4 stars because of the price (although clearly I was willing to pay it). This is the perfect all-around fall jacket.

Perfect jacket for running!!
I bought this in a size 4 (my usual Lulu jacket size) in cornflower last week, and took it out for a double run today. The temperature in Boston where I live, was in the low 40s Fahrenheit. I wore just a cool racerback tank under it. I honestly thought that I was going to roast running in this jacket in this temperature, but I wanted to try it out because I knew that I would want the cuffins and hood to keep in the heat after my two runs (I run to and from as my transportation). This jacket maintained PERFECT temperature during my runs!! And with the rulu cuffins and stowable hood, I was able to keep in enough warmth for the 2 mile cool down walk back home. I would consider buying this jacket in black as well. It's an amazing jacket for running!! In colder weather, I will wear the Star Runner pullover under it.

Dry and Breathable, but Zipper Issues.
I finally got to try the rain aspect of this coat out the other night when I went for my night time run. It kept me dry and warm, but was quite breathable, so I didn't feel too hot. I enjoyed the Cuffins since I do mostly run at night when it is colder. I bought the coat in angel wing, so it's pretty visible at night and I liked the added lace detail inside. The zipper is a bit hard to do up and almost split the second time zipping up the coat , I've been pretty careful about zipping it up after that since it is not a cheap coat. Maybe a metal zipper would work a little better? Overall it is a very comfortable coat to run in and fit very well. I am 5'4" and 125 lbs, I usually order a size 4 which fit perfectly and still had enough room to wear a Scuba Hoodie underneath for wearing to-and-from on colder days.

Love this jacket. It is MUCH better looking in person than in the pictures. I haven't worn it for running (yet) as it has not rained since I bought it. But, I've worn it for to & from and it feels great. I ordered a 6 and it felt perfect, and actually fit me in the shoulders (a rare occurrence for jackets). The only things I disliked were 1) the price, seemed a little steep for a rain jacket, but oh well I suppose. and 2) the zipper is sort of hard to pull up.. not like it's going to break or something, but it's just "stiff".
For reference I'm 5'6" & 135 and I got a 6.

Soft and comfortable
Let me start by saying this looks better in person than online. I ordered my regular size and found the fit perfect. I've worn this twice now and it's been great! The only thing I would change is the cuffs, but that's a very minor thing.
