Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Runner Karen from Arkansas on Wednesday, December 31, 2014I am so happy with this vest. It is long enough and the pockets are nice. I really love the plaid patter.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Katherine from Pittsburgh on Thursday, November 13, 2014Great vest for layering, with big pockets hold lots of gels, gloves, neat inside pocket for phones. Size medium fits 34 b or c with room for layering shirts. Some folks have issue with the waist and hips being too tight, but medium fits size 4 with room to move. These also wash well and don't hold on to odor. Perfect for running in 30-40 degree weather. This plaid color is much more subdued; my others are hi-viz pink and green. Can't beat the price with coupon--thanks STP!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mary The Tennis Player from New Jersey on Wednesday, October 1, 2014I was looking for a light vest to wear when I play tennis outdoors; we usually play all winter. This is a beautiful jacket, it is light weight yet breathable, and also rain resistant for that passing shower.
I am 5'1' and weigh 140. Unfortunately, the jacket was too tight around the hips, I like a little space for movement, it fit too snug for a medium. A Large would have been too big around the shoulders. Sadly I had to return it. Some sports jackets have a zipper that can pull up and give a little extra space for running, this did not. I would recommend it to someone who is not 'pear' shaped, very cute.
Reviewed by Mississippi girl from Alabama on Monday, December 16, 2013Perfect amount of warmth for 30-40 degrees when fleece is too much.
Reviewed by Jayme the nomadic do-gooder from Kansas City on Monday, August 12, 2013I bought this to wear daily bike commuting and training for a marathon. I wore it just about every day for several months.Though it's definitely not water proof, it does help a ton with keeping me dry in snow/rain and cutting down the wind. The zippered pockets are quite roomy, which is amazing for long runs (I normally carry keys, a snack or two, ID, phone, head band and gloves).
Since this is classic cut, the overall fit is quite roomy too. I'm 5'2 with 34A and 29 waist, and there's room to spare in the small size vest. Great for if you plan to layer a thicker fleece underneath, not so great if you're someone who wants all your workout clothes to be super form fitting for better aerodynamics and/or showing off your body.
I'd give this 5 stars except for 2 things. The length is too long (why can't there be more petite outdoor/workout clothes options?) and the color is BRIGHT. The picture showed a fairly tame green color, but out of the box it is neon green. This is good for visibility, but not what I was expecting.
