Perfect Jacket for Golf
I received the "Off the Court" jacket in my normal define size 4. Perfect fit. It fits like it should - loose. Lulu jackets are always so stylish and modern...this one is no exception. Highly recommend for golf or tennis. I love love love all of my yoga and running jackets and now I have a golf jacket! Can't wait to wear it on the golf course.

Great look, great fit!
I purchased this jacket with the Rise and Shine jacket as they were both on sale. Second jacket I've bought from Lululemon. I'm 5'7" and 150 lbs, so I usually purchase a size 8. Reading the reviews, I'm glad I didn't size down as some ladies suggested. I do agree that it feels a little large in certain areas. For example, the sleeves are a tad too long. Personally, I'm not bothered by it at all and can easily roll them up. However, I can understand this can be a frustration to golf and tennis enthusiasts who have to keep hiking the sleeves up.
The zipper on this jacket is fabulous. Great grip when pull up and down and no snags. I love the "garage" at the top and how well the neckline blends in with it, beautifully framing any woman's neck. Indeed, lots of detail was put into this jacket. I purchased the light blue/white one, because it stood out from the black one and the white one.
I absolutely appreciate how well this jacket falls to the hip. In the back, the band is sown within the jacket and the material, rather than scrunching, flows beautifully over it.
The only reason I'm giving this jacket 4 stars is the mesh. After my Rise and Shine jacket spoiled me rotten with it's buttery Circle Mesh, I tried this one on (with regular mesh as it says in the materials), and noticed it was much...well...scratchier. I still love it, and it doesn't bother me, but I'd love this feedback to be forwarded to the Off The court team for improvement. I think it would feel like a second skin if the mesh was a tad smoother.
Other than that, I love it!

I am usually a 4 in all of my Lululemon clothes, so I ordered this one in that size as well. When I received it, it was HUGE. So, I contacted Lululemon to see if there was anything I could do and they rudely turned me away. Now I am stuck with a jacket that I probably won't be wearing.
I guess I'd recommend ordering a size down in this item and don't ever expect any help from their "educators" as they are useless anyway.

Beautiful color, cute details, and comfortable.
I wear this over the Run to Make it Count tank on the way to the track or gym. The DWR is great to combat the constant rainy weather we have been having in the southeast this year and the zip pockets are perfect for stowing away items I want to be extra careful with.
Love the way the bottom is finished to be very slightly rounded.
I don't think I would wear this running, but I love it as a jacket over the coordinating clothing. I also own the Aqua/Pow Purple Sunbeam and Run Pace and appreciate how the items coordinate.
It is a little boxy on my skinny shoulders. That is the only reason for going 4 star at the WMTM price. I would only go 3.5 stars at the full price.
I am 34B, 126 pounds, 5'5" and the size 4 worked for me. I wear anywhere from a 2-6 in LLL tops, but mostly 6, so I think this runs a tiny bit large.

Close but No Cigar
I am writing to request the return of the "Invisible Cloak" Jacket! Though the name makes it sound wizardly and flowy, it was actually a super smart commuter jacket from many years past. It was similar to this jacket here in that it had DWR and was ventilated under the arms. But some crucial elements of the Invisible Cloak are lacking here, specifically, the stow-away hood, a higher collar and a fun detail of rusching (sp?) at the shoulder which makes the "Cloak" waaay better for the fashion/design conscious to blend into the urban streets. I STILL use my black Invisible Cloak daily for my 20 min. bike ride to work. Bear in mind I live in San Francisco and therefore this jacket is a perfect layering weight for this climate. The Clock can also be tucked into very inconspicuous crevasses of my purse, another plus for the urban yogini on the go! I only wish another line would be produced so that I can replace mine now (going on 4 years now!). If you DO bring back the amazing, incredible, nearly perfect Invisible Cloak, I would greatly appreciate it. Maybe this time around, try making the tops of the shoulders and the lower, lower back completely water proof? Thanks lululemon!

Looks good but...
I bought this jacket because i loved the look & the comfort when i tried it on in store. I wore it outside for the first time while i was speed walking & i found it extremely uncomfortable. The inside mesh clung to my skin & i didnt find the overall fit very breathable.

Beautiful jacket with great finishing touches!
Because there was one very negative review, I had to write my review. I purchased this jacket in both the black and white/nimbus colors and wear them with the LLL golf shorts, yoga pants, and studio pants. Though I do not wear them while playing golf, they are great jackets to throw on for dining at the country club or wearing out-and-about. Fits TTS.

looks good but...
I love the look of this jacket and the fabrics used are great, but don't try and play golf or tennis in it (which is what it was supposedly made for)! The jacket is too short and rides up with each swing making an uncomfortable and unslightly bulge at your waistline. Hiking it back down constantly is distracting and annoying. Too bad because I do like this jacket.
