    I can find absolutely nothing negative to say about this well-made and well-designed running vest; it is light, however feels very sturdy; it is also very functional and I really enjoy wearing the green and black colors. I wear a Large size and this vest fits me perfectly. I don't just wear it for running, either; I have found that vests are the perfect garment for men for carrying keys and wallets, so I wear this vest when I go shopping or running errands, as well. This is a super, well-made vest.

    A little too long but I like it... Haven't tried it yet but I'm sure it will be fine...

    Lightweight & reflective, this vest gives just enough cover without being heavy or distracting during along run.

    This is a good visibility running vest. It's light weight and has lots of pockets. My husband was happy to get it, and wore it the very next time he ran after getting it.

    Nice quality vest but the black one is not what is shown. All the colored vest, except for the gray, show them as having reflective front pockets, but the black I got did not. I sent it back and STP customer service was great about it and reordered an exchange with a note to have the shipping department verify that the new one would have the right features. As it turned out, I received an email telling me that all the black ones left did not have the reflective front pockets. I just reordered the same vest again since it is nice quality, light weight, and excellent for those chilly days when the wind is blowing. I also have a florescent green one too for visibility on dark days and busy trail, but I like the black one because nice enough to use as a regular vest for a quick run to the store, etc.

    Brooks got it right. Fabrics that flex with my body, pockets for the running essentials, and smooth zippers suit me fine.

    Fits true to size men's Medium just right on my 150 pound 5' 9" frame.

    This item is an athletic size item. Very nice quality but I gave it to my wife. The item is about three sizes smaller then normal sizing. Would of been nice to know.

    This is my first lightweight vest. I wear it while warming up before a soccer match or going on a run when the temperature is cooler, in the 50-60 degree range. I normally wear size medium, but I ordered the size small and it fits well without restricting any movement. (I'm 5'6" with a stocky build and weigh 165 lbs.) I wear vests one size down since there is never any shoulder restriction. I found myself wearing this so often that I bought another one.

    I have a very similar Brooks Jacket and love it on very cold windy days (less than 40 degrees). However, there are days that a vest is more than enough, especially when the sun comes up and it starts getting warmer. I like to wear it on fairly cold days with a long sleeve technical shirt underneath. This jacket has zippered outer pockets, which I use to hold chapstick, gloves and my cap. There is an interior pocket suited for an iPod or the like. The shell is the Lightning Dry(TM) fabric and does a great job as a windbreaker. The collar will also zip up and provides some extra insulation for your neck. I bought the black vest and found it functional and very good looking overall.
