Run: Get Up And Glow Jacket
One of the best jacket ever - really!
I kept thinking about this jacket for a while even after it initially popped up on WMT. I finally decided to get it as I noticed that the only available size was (still is) my size (6). I am 5'7", 132Lb lean body-type with wide swimmer's shoulders. This jacket is the BOMB! It is so soft inside-out (it is fully lined, including the sleeves), and the fabric stretches too, so my shoulders never feel restricted. The floral pattern is really pretty; it doesn't look like floral patterns on some generic bedding or curtains. I am not sure if I would wear it when running, but I think it is pretty enough to wear it around in town. The jacket is really flattering. It looks better in person definitely.

I could use this almost every day.
I bought this to use as a to/from jacket and was very pleased when I received it. The first couple days I wore this I got about 5 compliments on it.
It looks much better in person and the 6 fits me comfortably (5'-3", 125 lbs, 34B). The body is slim but not tight. The arms are a tad too long for me and I asked the shop if they could hem this and keep the elastic ends and they said they would need to check with the seamstress so we shall see.
I like the underarm ventilation, the well-fitting hood, the reflecting stripes, and longer back that covers my rear.

Spring has sprung jacket
This is my first review, but since I received four compliments (one from my 16 year old son) in the first hour I wore this jacket, I had to write a positive review. It looks much better on than in the picture and is very comfortable.

Functional and cute!
I normally get a size 12 in the Define and In stride, and I got a 10 in this one. Keeps me dry and warm, blocks the freezing wind. I love the inside pocket for ipod of metro card and I really like how the zipper goes all the way up on the hood to keep the wind off my neck.

Beautiful Jacket, great quality
I am in love with that jacket. The fabric is much more impressive in person (and I thought it was beautiful online!). The cut is very flattering, the hood does not slip off of your head. The only thing I don't love... I am a size 6 in most lululemon gear and other reviews said the jacket ran larger or right on target. I find it to be a little bit tight: fits perfect with a tank top and stretchy pants, less perfect this morning when I threw it on over my scrubs enroute to work. Still worth every cent though, but slightly less versatile than I was hoping.

Great run jacket
I have taken this jacket out on several long runs and love the fact that it has a longer back than front, elastic cuffs rather than cuffins and the off center zipper. The extra length keeps my butt warm, the elastic cuffs allow me to push them up easily and the off center zipper keeps the zipper from scratching. The only thing I find a bit annoying is there is an ipod pocket but no way for the cord to get from the pocket to the "port" hole...

love this jacket
I couldn't love this jacket more. Great fit, easy to move in and super cute. I guess I would love it more if I had gotten it on sale, but totally worth the full price. Snap this one up, ladies!

Best running jacket EVER!
Sersiously! You will not find a better running jacket than this. I have no idea how anyone could have a negative thing to say about it. I shopped around after purchasing it as I did pay the full price of $150, and was hoping to find something a little cheaper but nothing even comes close to this jacket. I bought the flowery one even though it's not totally my style but for some reason it felt softer than the other colours. I have actually grown to love the flowerly look, but even if I didn't, I wouldn't care because this jacket is totally the bomb! Fits great, great quality, great pockets, great airpit/back vents. PERFECT!! Do yourself a favour and buy this jacket.

Received the jacket in the mail. Pretty color, and I ordered my usual size 8. It runs little big. I Mean going to order the reflective one in black. Funny thing, why is there a sensor tag inside the pocket?? Can I take it into the store to have it removed?? Very inconvenient... I have been orderering from on line store for long time and this is the first time this has happened

I bought the floral print which looks way better on and in person than on-line. It is a really pretty print.
I am large chested and go between a 10 and a 12. Based upon the reviews, I was going to by a size 10 as it said they run large. For a large chest the 10 was tight. I needed to go with the 12 and am glad I tried it on first as it was a final sale.
The jacket is like a nylon rain coat with a hoodie and soft lining. Very nice quality. It is not too long which is also good.
