    I order a 10 which is my usual size and all fit well except at the bottom of the jacket. It fanned out at the hips making it look like a skirt. Granted I am a little narrow at the hips, but this wouldn't work well without full figure hips or a drawstring. The color was great! The material was soft. The reflective detailing a real plus, but unfortunately I sent it back as it just didn't look good with the flared bottom.

    The jacket is great. It's light weight and easy to carry with you.

    This is a very nice light weight jacket. I just wore it today for a walk along the beach. It kept out the wind and fog. It is well made with a polyester fabric that has a soft feel. I love the two zipper pockets, and on one a tag said "packable pocket". I guess that the jacket could fold up into it, though I haven't tried. The neck/collar has a dark charcoal colored fabric on the peachy color jacket that I selected. I think that it will be great for travel. I usually wear a 10 or 12 and have broad shoulders. I bought the large, and it fits well. I'm sure that the medium would have been too small for me.

    The fabric is soft on my skin, lightweight, feels like nothing and provides a nice amount of warmth. In weather in the 60s I will toasty warm with only a tank top underneath. The reflective strips make it safe to bike, walk and run at night.

    The description says the jacket packs down into its own pocket. It doesn't.

    I wish it had pull tabs at the bottom to close the bottom to wind.

    I love the color.

    I ordered the jacket to go with the tights and capris, and I wasn't disappointed. The fit and quality are good. The jacket completed the outfits,
    so I'm ready for the summer and fall.

    Bottom flares out like skirt.

    I liked the first one I bought so much I bought a second one in another color. I'm 5'-7", 150 lbs and a 38D. The large size fits very well. It's slightly fitted, but roomy enough for layering and movement. I have worn this jacket while XC skiing and snowboarding at 25°, and while biking at 60°. It's pretty darn windproof, reasonably waterproof (stands up to a heavy mist or light sprinkle, but I wouldn't depend on it for a downpour), yet it breaths so you don't drown in your own sweat. I have the Blue Jewel and the Cayenne, and like them very much - I feel pretty visible in them on the road.

    I am a student and I cannot always get my runs in in daylight. I was looking for something that we would help me be visible at night and ordered this jacket in "Cayenne". I wasn't sure what to expect in a jacket this inexpensive. I can really only describe it as a neon, salmon color. It is great, and I am contemplating ordering another one. It's very lightweight and sleek. The reflective accents are powerful, and the jacket color itself adds to the visibility. I am 5'4", but I have a long torso and long arms, so I bought a medium so I could layer. Yesterday, I ran in 0F weather, with a -20 windchill. I wore a thermal shirt underneath for warmth but this jacket (while not designed for warmth) helped block the wind. It is great! Buy it!

    I bought this for my 40 degree am runs in the winter. I can wear this with a sleeveless tech tee underneath and be warm without overheating. I love this jacket and will be buying another. I wore this on a evening trail walk at the beach as well and was not disappointed. I do wish it had a hood but that doesn't detract from the jacket.

    I needed a lightweight jacket that would cut down on the wind but not be so heavily waterproof that it blocked the sweat from escaping. This jacket fills the bill perfectly. My only complaint is the fastener at the top of the collar that rubs on my chin if I zip it up all the way. I like the zip pockets for holding keys and tissues as well.
