Not for endurance athletes

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tobor the 8th Man from Smoky Mountains, TN on Thursday, December 13, 2012
I'm 5'11" 155lbs; Med jacket fit perfect. I'm an avid marathoner/ultra-runner and know my gear. I purchased this jacket because it was initially described as being designed for COLD weather. It is a light weight jacket. It is water/wind resistant; contrary to the description, the jacket does not ventilate well at all. I took it for a 12 mile run in 35F weather and returned completely soaked. The jacket does look nice and can probably be used comfortably under specific circumstances, however do not purchase it and expect it to be a true cold-weather jacket. And remember that the downside to any garment being water & windproof is that it also holds stuff in. If you only train for a few miles at a time--probably not a problem. Endurance athletes should look elsewhere.
