Run: Rise And Shine Jacket
Love this Jacket!!
I bought this jacket to take on an Alaskan cruise a few weeks back and it worked beautifully for the cool damp weather. Since then I have worn it running, walking my dogs and everywhere else. It is warm but breathable and has a super soft lining. I am 5'4" and about 125lbs, 34B with wide shoulders and bought a size 6. I was a little worried it would be too tight based on other reviews but it is perfect.

Best rainy day run motivator!!!
I ordered this online in the Pop Orange/Bleached Coral in a size 4, taking the chance after an educator in one of my local stores said she had it and loved it (I live very close to two stores, so I'm *really* lucky especially if I need to return an online purchase). I LOVE IT!! The size 4 fits me perfectly. It isn't baggy or boxy at all on me. It has a body skimming shape that is just roomy enough. For layering I can see why some would size up, but I'm THRILLED with the 4!! It fits me exactly the way I was praying that it would, and the drawcords work great for customizing the fit/drape. I love the big hood that can be adjusted to stay in place. This jacket will definitely keep me motivated to run in the chilly rain!!

Orange/Coral combo -- favorite!
I love this jacket. I love the orange/coral combination, the colors really pop and are bright. I have received tons of compliments. I wear it running and also casually. I think it fits well -- in regards to other bad reviews, it doesn't seem "boxy" to me, it's just not a tight-fitting jacket but it's not really meant to be. It is also water-proof, which is a bonus. The size 4 fit well, not too tight or too big. Fits true to other Lulu size 4s. 5'5", 120 lbs, busty.

I needed a wind breaker to get me to and from during the muggy months. At first glance I thought the jacket would be perfect, when it finally arrived in the mail, the fit was way too boxy, and the zipper looked extremely cheap. I was able to deal with the boxiness, because I figured I could use it during the transition months with the layering. After my first wash, the inner coral lining leaked through to the sleeve of the outer fabric. Now it just looks like I have stains of pink patches.
hopefully lulu fixes this and comes up with a wider selection of spring jackets.

Love this Jacket!
What sold me on this jacket was the hood. I have several Lulu rain jackets and none had hoods. When I saw this one, I just had to get it. I do not agree with some of the reviews. The material is not cheap looking. And the zippers are large and easy to maneuver. The pockets are really large so you can fit your keys, tissues and gloves. There is an iPhone pocket with a cord opening (very useful!) It is a loose fit but looks really nice on. I do not find it short at all. I'm 5'6" and it falls below my hips. Also, it has a nice pleat in the back with gives a very pretty look.
The hood is large but stays on (terrific!) and the collar zips up high so wind and rain doesn't get in. (Great design) I got the jacket in black (very versatile -- goes with everything). And, the jacket is surprisingly warm. I wore it on an damp, rainy, windy 50 degree day and was super comfortable and dry. It is lined in a nice, stretchy fabric which is soft and very comfortable to the skin.
My only complaint is that Lulu doesn't include the hair tie on the zipper pull anymore. That was the Lulu signature, I loved it and am missing it a lot!!

Pretty nice jacket
I bought this jacket about a week ago and I've been wearing it ever since. I'm usually a four in lulu and purchased the eight--not because the jacket runs small, but because I wanted adequate layering room. It's a great jacket! I got the dune color, which is lovely. The vents are nice, and are certainly very useful as this is actually a really warm jacket. I went for a walk in the rain the other day and not only did I stay dry, I got pretty toasty, and this was 40 degree weather!
As much as I like the jacket, I'd just like to put in my two cents about the lower quality we've been seeing in recent lulu products. Yes, this is a nice jacket. The zippers, however, seem pretty flimsy--I believe they're made out of some sort of plasticy material, and they aren't what I would expect to see on a $150 jacket. Flimsy zippers might seem like a pretty silly thing to be disappointed about, but I am.
This is a great jacket, but I'm missing the old lulu touches that would have made it an incredible jacket. Lulu would do well to listen to these consistent customer complaints (woo, alliteration!) and take our opinions into account when designing future products. I know there have been many other customers with complaints similar to my own.

Not just a morning run jacket
I wore this jacket last night on my after work run. I had a tank top and dri fit long sleeve top underneath and I was a bit warm. The jacket is perfect for cooler weather runs, but don't need to wear so much underneath. I liked how the collar came up high to keep my neck warm. The jacket was a perfect fit and moved very comfortably with me as I ran.

This jacket is amazing for moderate temperature running! I recently ran a half marathon in -8 weather and actually got hot because the lining worked so well! And my family had a very easy time seeing me on the course (thank you pop orange!).

A nice Spring jacket :)
I had no intention of buying a spring jacket, but saw this in the Frond green colour, and had to try it on. I love the material, and actually like the fit as well. Its a roomy true to size fit. I love the fact that it has a hood, as it seems to me that the last few light running jackets that Lululemon has released have been hoodless. I also like the fact that there are no thumbholes, because I find it uncomfortable having to layer a top and a jacket both with thumbholes.
I am overall really happy with this purchase. The green colour is really nice and makes me smile.
