    Comments about Womens Brooks Essential Run Outerwear Jacket:

    Out of all the jackets to choose from, I'm glad I purchased this one! It's lightweight and perfect for any runner. I purchased the yellow one, which is really fluorescent! I wanted a jacket that would stand out so that I could be seen while running. This jacket cannot be missed.

    Comments about Womens Brooks Essential Run Outerwear Jacket:

    I bought this in 2011. I just tried it again for a rainy run this morning and got totally soaked. I was hoping I was not remembering correctly from the last time I wore it in the rain, but I was wrong. It may be okay for drizzle, but not good in Oregon rain!!!

    I would recommend if you aren't wearing in the rain.

      Comments about Womens Brooks Essential Run Outerwear Jacket:

      Love this jacket.

      I've worn it running outside all winter as an outer layer over short & long sleeve tees, and it's perfect for about 30-50 degrees, wet or dry. I'm 5'9" and a size 4-6, and the medium fits perfectly. Detailing is great too. Breathable, light, warm, water resistant.

      The only surprise was that the bright green is really a bright lime, not a leaf green as shown online. But for safety's sake, I kept it, and I'm glad I did! Friends/family have commented on how reflective it is, so it's great for after-dark winter runs.

        Comments about Womens Brooks Essential Run Outerwear Jacket:

        This jacket is great for drizzly, long run days when you need a little something to keep you dry. I like that the sleeves and length of the coat are nice and long - the last thing you want is to have ill-fitting sleeves on a rainy run. Just wish I could have gotten the purple color[...]

          Bought this jacket for rainy cool spring days. I love that it's bright for running at dawn/dusk. It was a little more snug than I was used to, but after running in it the first time I was happy. It's fitted but not restrictive.

            I love the the comfort of this jacket for running. The bright colors and reflective designs are great for running in the dark and still stylish at the same time. I've gotten a lot of compliments on the look but my favorite part is how lightweight but still effective this jacket is!

              Great purchase! I was concerned that it would not be warm enough, since it is so light weight, but it has proven to be super warm. My only complaint would be for an interior zipper pocket.

              Great jacket when you need a little more than your base layer. It's lightweight, water and windproof and very stylish. Not the jacket for you if you need warmth, but great for 40's and 50's weather!!
