Complete the Look
First Mile Jacket is rated out of 5 by 44.
Rated 1 out of 5 by runamuck from Zipper needs tweaking I love the look of this jacket as it is super slimming and stylish. The drawback is the quality of the zipper is not up to par with other Lulu jackets I have owned. It keeps jamming part way up. A better quality zipper is in order here, especially considering the price tag of the jacket. With no Lulu store in my city ( I purchased the jacket while on holidays), returning the jacket is logistically tricky. If I could, I definitely would as I am not a satisfied consumer in this case. I will reconsider another jacket purchase from Lululemon in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laura877520 from thumbs up I am currently training to run a 30k in the next three months, and it's the middle of winter right now. I am running 5-10k 4 times a week, and this coat has been what is keeping me going! I love the built in gloves and vents in the chest. Whenever I feel like I am over heating I open the vents and pull back the gloves for a bit to cool off. I wear 2-3 long sleeve shirts underneath on REALLY cold days. The only downside is the hood. Its really round and bounces around on your head while you run. The slightest gust of wind will blow it off. No drawstring to make it tight sadly. Seems strange they missed such a standard feature of a hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by loveitall13 from LOVE this jacket!! I bought this jacket in store in the plum colour and I absolutely love it. The fit is very flattering and warm enough for what I need. Sometimes I wear it with a sweater underneath for heading to the arena or a light shirt is fine if I'm using it to run around. I've had no issue with the hood detaching....I normally wear a hat, so I don't have a need for the hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Coldcanadian from Best Running Jacket I absolutely love this jacket. It is a running jacket so it's not as warm as some other transitional winter pieces. However, it kept me warm during all my runs and the removable hood made it a nice piece to wear from the gym to class. It is a little tight in the shoulders, but I sized up to help with this. The price tag is pretty steep which made me wait this long to get it. This is definitely a splurge item but it is a beautiful piece!

Rated 5 out of 5 by vwlover from Great for extreme cold weather I bought this jacket for outside running in one of the coldest cities in the world; WInnipeg, MB!! Other reviews say that it's not meant for colder temperatures, but it was -32 yesterday when I went for my 4.5 mile run and the jacket was perfect! I wore my long sleeve Swiftly Tech and my Define jacket underneath and I was not cold at all! I love the fact that it's breathable and the zip up collar is just the right height to allow for a neck warmer. And to top it off, it's a great color and looks good too. What a great fit! I'm 5'8" and 160 lbs and I fit a size 8 perfectly. Thanks for a great jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by speedy from LOVE LOVE IT! I absolutely love this jacket. Yes the price was the only thing that I was hesitant about. However it is perfect. The size is true to your lulu size as well. I am 5.5 and 140 and took an 8 and its still has room.. Don't size up! I highly recommend!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by trtyoself2011 from Not worth it For the money, this jacket is not worth it. The hood continuously tries to detach from the jacket, no matter which way I try to "lock" the zipper head. I kept having to worry and check (and double-check, and triple check) to make sure that it wasn't detached completely while I was walking around town. Each time, I would find it at least halfway, if not almost completely detached! Not worth it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ames14 from Worst Jacket Ever, NOT FOR RUNNING I bought this jacket at the beginning of the winter season to use as a running jacket. Turns out... its not made for running!! The hood is completely unpractical, it is way too big so when its on you cant see a thing side to side. You can't tighten the hood either so the first gust of wind blows it right off. The other BIG problem is that it is wayyyyy to tight in the shoulders and I have a very small frame! I'm 5'3" and 105lbs and small shoulders. Got my typical size 4 but still way too tight across the shoulders (couldn't move around at all) and if i sized up it would be way to big everywhere else. It also didn't even have thumb holes!!! Like come on lulu!!! We're spending $250 on a "running" jacket and you can't even add thumb holes?? And finally this jacket was not warm at all. The second it dropped below -5 Celsius (which is a very warm winters day in Alberta) it was no good. I wanted to love so much because its cute but it went back and I've never been so confident with my decision. I ended up buying the "Run For Cold" jacket instead and its perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PaulaM from My Favorite Lulu Jacket!! I am not one to write reviews, but I love this jacket so much that I had to! I received this jacket for Christmas and have worn it almost everyday since! Its perfect to throw on for my 6am spin classes and its also nice enough that I can wear it to work after. I like how it is not too bulky so you can easily move in it, yet its thick enough to keep you warm. If you live in a super cold climate you may want more of a down jacket to run in outdoors, but I am from NC and this jacket it just right for my winter runs in the mountains! I will definitely be purchasing more in different colors! Highly recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Blee from Not a Winter running jacket I really wanted to love this jacket since it was so pretty in the purple and looked like the What the Fluff jackets.....however, beware....this jacket looks like a warm jacket from the front.....but it has almost no insulation on the back of the jacket...the wind goes right thru it! I wore it twice, once in 28 degrees and froze and once in 35 degrees it was ok, but not warm....both times running 15+ miles. It is not an endurance jacket! The title is correct...if you are running 1 mile in the it should work...if you are looking for a long run winter running jacket.....leave this one in the store....so disappointing and way overpriced.....I hate that I spent so much money on a jacket that should be worn in high 30's, low 40's temps.....I have many Lulu jackets and this one is the worst for the money!
