Miss Misty Pullover
I never write reviews- ever... I wanted to share my experience with the Miss Misty pullover and tell everyone that if you are considering this pullover you need to buy it now! So stunning. In fact, I purchased it in both the inky soot and inkwell colors. I have received hundreds of compliments on both. I'm not a huge lululemon purchaser but this purchase made a loyal fan out of me. Thanks lulu!

My best Lulu purchase ever!
When I saw this online, I knew I had to have it. I went to the local store to try it on, and I fell in love. I purchased it, wore it out of the store, and I have been wearing it pretty much every day since. I did have to size up because it is narrow in the shoulders. It doesn't have any give, but it is not hard to get on and off (it would be easier if the fabric gave just a little). I love that the hat can be stored until you have to use it. I also love that the jacket can be stowed in the pocket so you can put it in your purse or backpack. I could go on all day about how much I love this pullover. The features are really fabulous, and I think that it was excellent value for the money I paid (I did purchase on sale).
As an improvement, it would be better if the drawstring was not at the hip. But I don't use that feature.

Happy I Bought It
Great jacket for the purpose it is intended for, I wore this yesterday for a 20 mile training run. The weather was light rain, mid 40's and windy. It was an awesome outer layer both with some rain and wind protection. I loved the lightweight feel over a warmer shirt underneath. It was worth every penny!

Love this Jacket!
This jacket is great. It's not waterproof, so it won't keep you completely dry, but it's water resistant, and holds off drizzle for quite some time. I ran a marathon in this with steady rain, and it kept me dry until about mile 20.
The pocket within the pocket on the right side perfectly fits my iphone, it also holds my race day fuel in place without jiggling. I LOVE the cinch bottom and cinch hood - really a great jacket!
I sized down (am usually a 4 in tops), but mostly because I liked it a little shorter.

Pullover is a bit baggy in the stomach area in my true to size, but a size down was too tight in the shoulders. It was comfortable to run in, the hood actually stayed place, but its NOT water-resistant. I was told by an educator in the store that this pullover would be good for running in the rain, so I bought it and used it for a rainy 5k this weekend. I had my iPhone 5 in the zipped pocket for emergency (I was there alone) and my phone was ruined. If I can't use a "water-resistant" pullover in the rain, what good is it really? So disappointed, $128 spent on the pullover and $200 to replace my phone! I wish I could return this because I won't be using it in the rain anymore.

Make this cut in an absorbent material please!
I love the cut of this! Longer, not too tight (room to layer a swiftly under) BUT the material is not absorbent and not water repellent. Make in a fabric like Swift Ultra and it will be perfect!

Adorable, not entirely functional
I think this jacket is very cute, and has some great features. I like all the pockets, how lightweight it is, and how small it can become to fit into a backpack easily and quickly. That said, I bought it to wear while bike commuting, and it does little to block out the wind or rain. I have ridden with it in light rain as well as heavy rain, and it doesn't hold up too well against either. And while the panels in the sleeves are very breathable (great when on my bike in a humid light rain situation), they let all the wind through. So while the pattern is cute, I will be purchasing another jacket for this purpose in the not-too-distance future.

Perfect Light Weight Rain Jacket
Ordered this back in August for a lightweight rain/hiking/camping jacket and have used it tons since. LOVE the fit of this jacket. It's NOT 100% waterproof but has really held up on both runs and rainy hikes for me. It's breathable which is nice since sometimes the mist is a warm one. I'm 6'0 143 and my TTS 6 fit like a glove. That said I have very narrow shoulders so I could see how someone with broader shoulders may find this a bit snug. Great jacket - have gotten lots of wear out of it already!

I was SSSSSOOOOOOO excited when I heard this pullover was coming out. I stocked the website and my local stores. I FINALLY got to pick up a couple in two different colours. I did try it on in the store and I was tossed. I WANTED to love it, but I just couldn't. The material feels and looks super cheap and so do the zippers. If you ever encountered a tree branch, I am sure the jacket would tear.
I was hoping this pullover was going to replace the Pack & Go, but no go! :( SUPER SAD FACE!!!!!!

I really wanted to like this, but....
I really liked this jacket until I wore it in the rain. I ran with this jacket in what started as a light rain and developed into a more moderate rain. It was not raining hard or heavy, and yet, my shoulders, chest, and upper back were completely soaked in under 1 mile. I bought this to run in the rain, and as a rain jacket it is a complete failure unless you only plan on running in a very light mist for a short run. Needless to say, I am not pleased and this jacket is an utter disappointment. I have plenty of non-rain jackets and don't need another. Do NOT buy this jacket if you plan on using it in the rain. Go buy a rain jacket from Brooks, Nike, or Under Armor because at least you'll be able to return it if it turns out not being water resistant.
I typically am a 4 in Lulu shirts and an occasional 6. I bought this in a 6 because I have broad shoulders and am glad I sized up. The jacket is not tight around my hips at all. I'm 5'4 and it falls a few inches below my hip bone. I like the fit of it. It's roomy and can be used as a top layer. If you need a light weight jacket this jacket is fine, but don't expect to remain dry at all in the rain. Of course, if you just need a light half zip jacket or a top layer, there are plenty of cheaper options like the race your pace half zip jacket.
