Run: Get Up And Glow Jacket *Reflective 360
EXCELLENT Jacket for Rain & Wind!!!
This is one of the BEST Loo purchases I have ever made!! I was hesitant to get this because of the "crooked" zipper! Its nice when zipped up, but if your hot and want to unzip, the jacket looks weird open with alot of material hanging on one side and barely any on the other. So if its warm out I wouldn't wear this jacket. Loo needs to stop making these off center zippers, they aren't very useful as an every day jacket.
But, yesterday I went to an Autism walk and it was so windy out we were all freezing. I had Astros on, and a Swiftly, cashmere sweater, and a lightweight down jacket and I was so cold! Luckily I had thrown some extra items in my car, one of which was this jacket. Once I put this coat on I was absolutely perfectly warm!! This jacket cut out all the wind, I was so shocked at how well it worked. The hood also saved me from a headache as it kept my head nice and warm too! The hood stayed on my head nicely without covering my eyes or falling back down. I was skeptical since there were no fasteners to tighten it, but there is no need. Hood fits perfect, and was very comfortable for 3 hours.
I had the jacket on when I was doing dishes and ran my arm under the faucet by accident and the whole stream of water beaded right off my sleeve! Amazing! I then had to do it again because I was surprised at how well it worked LOL!
Also jacket has 2 exterior side ZIPPERED pockets. They are nice and roomy! Loo needs to have zippered pockets on all their jackets so when we are walking/running our stuff doesn't fall out! Pockets without zippers are useless! Jacket also has an inside zip pocket and the little hole for headphone cord.
If you find this coat, and are on the fence, just go get it!! You will not be disappointed! I keep telling my friend OMG I am so glad I bought this jacket, LOL!!!

Great jacket for all the little details
I bought the jacket specifically for the asymmetrical zipper because I hate having the zipper hit my chin on winter long runs (12+ miles). When zipped, it falls perfectly away from my face. The jacket is unexpectedly heavier than anticipated, which is good. I've always layered up under windbreakers but I'm glad I now have a jacket with a little more weight than the typical windbreaker to keep me drier and warmer. The other nice feature is how the hood fits when zipped, it's tight enough around the face as to not blow open. Finally, the jacket is longer than my other windbreakers. Granted, I'm fairly short at 5'4" I love that this jacket falls past my bum. I'm really looking forward to running in this next winter.
I'm increasingly becoming a fan of Lululemon run gear. I'm a serious runner and avid marathoner so finding clothes that stand up to brutal Chicago weather is essential, from 90º+F runs (did 8 miles in 100ºF temps last summer) to bitter windy winter lakefront runs (running so long the water in my bottle starts to freeze).
I think this jacket will be perfect for next winter. It's weighty enough to stand on its own in 30º-40ºF runs, but (and I ordered up a size) can easily be warmer by layering for much colder 10º-20º runs.

Perfect Winter Jacket
If you are looking for a great winter running jacket this is perfect. I have worn it all winter long while training for a marathon in the cold, windy, plains of North Dakota. Depending on the temperature I will wear a winter thermal, t shirt, or tank underneath. Great pockets for storage on long runs. Also super cute, I have gotten a lot of compliments on it.

I saw this jacket on sale so I carefully read all of the reviews before purchasing it. To all of the reviewers, thank you!! I bought it based on the reviews and I am so happy I did. It's adorable and very flattering. I bought the black in a size 6 and it is TTS. I am 5'4" and ~130lbs. I thought about getting the 4 since I am smaller on top but I am glad I settled on the 6 (the 4 would have been too tight around my hips). Ladies, get it while you can!

My new fav jacket
I was skeptical looking at this jacket online, but found it on sale in a lulu store. Much better in person. Very comfortable. Love the off set zip which makes it more stylish. This is my go to jacket to throw over my running clothes. Soft on the inside. Wish the sleeves had the hand inserts, but I wear with shirts that have them, so it doesn't really matter. This jacket has regular sleeves. Cut below the butt which we ladies love-no tushy hanging out here! True to size. I took my usual size 6. Loved that I got it on sale!!

Love the offset zipper and mesh zones!
I bought this jacket in the store a few weeks ago, in the flare (safety cone orange, really). My husband calls it my Bears jacket. The primary appeal is that the jacket is highly visible and will make street running/biking safer. I also liked that it is a close cousin, style-wise, to the Run:Bundle Up jacket, which I have used all winter. It's been too cold to wear it in Chicago, but I wore it for the first time during my first half marathon recently. The functionality was great. I layered it with a long sleeve Swiftly, and at no time did I overheat or shiver in the varied weather conditions (from 30F and windy to 45F and very sunny). As for the sizing, I felt like the jacket might have been 1/2 size roomier in the abdomen than I would like, with the present design. I am 5'8", 32B, 26" waist, 38" hips. I put my iPhone in the large pocket, so that I could use the headphone cord outlet. The phone ended up hitting me in the lower abdomen for most of the race, until my gloves ended up in my pocket too. I think this could've been solved by making the smaller pocket be the iPhone pocket. In the future I will just keep my phone in the smaller pocket and not use the cord management system. I was disappointed to notice there was (orange) pilling under the arms once I took it off. I wore the jacket for half of a morning, and the fabric didn't withstand the use. Bummer! I noticed that, unlike the Bundle Up jacket, the arm mesh doesn't run down the torso as far, so that with this jacket, the mesh was rubbing against the orange fabric. Hence, orange pilling. This might be solved by making the mesh area a little larger. Finally, I think this jacket could be improved by adding a magnet to hold the collar open when it is half-zipped, like during a warm run. I liked this element on the down vest I bought last fall, and I think it would be a great update to this style in the future. All in all, I would purchase this jacket again (if the mint stripe hadn't already sold out!). It will be good for early spring/late fall running and cycling and will double as a summer wind breaker.

I love this jacket. I am a 10 in define and forme jackets and wear an 8 very comfortably. For reference, I am 5'9" and 140 lbs athletically built. The material is soft and comfortable, and I think the offset zipper is flattering

Great Lightweight Jacket for To and From the Gym!
I bought this jacket as a rain jacket after the Make It Rain Jacket sold out in my size. I am 5'4", ~115 lbs, 32B and I bought a size 4. I was lucky enough to find it at my local store so I could try it on since it was on final markdown. I can fit a tank, thin base layer and a light fleece or pullover under the size 4 and it's still comfortable. I bought it in black with the reflective pin stripes. I haven't used it in the rain yet.
It's very fitted on me and the bum covering is just enough. I've gotten several compliments on it. It will come in handy with nightime dog walks since it is reflective. I will also wear it to and from the gym when the weather warms up a bit. The only thing I find a little awkward is the off center zipper which is why I took off one star. It makes the flaps not lay quite right when it is not zipped all the way up but it's not a deal breaker. I also would not pay full price for this - I paid $99.
Note to other reviewers - its super helpful when you include your height and weight and what size you bought. I have used this information on items that are final sale on WMTM to figure out what size to order!

Might just run in the rain!
Bought this jacket yesterday at the Burlington outlet. It is nice and warm but wish I had looked online first I paid $129 at the outlet and its only $99 online what's with that?
