I've used this jacket twice so far, 30 degrees & 25 mph wind, and 30 degrees with heavy snow. I've run for 40 years so I'm not easily impressed by the "newest fad" but I have to say this is the best winter jacket I have ever had (and I have had a few!). It's the only one that I have used that is BOTH waterproof and wind proof. It is very comfortable but a tad on the small side especially in the shoulders. I would order up a size to make sure you have enough room for your inner layers but with this jacket you can get away with one or two fewer layers!
Jury is Still out
I purchased this jacket for evening running in the midwest. I have worn it twice, on a 23 degree day and a 34 degree day, both times with a long sleeved tech top underneath and was still cold. Somehow, the jacket I got does not seem to match the descriptions that others have left. I sized up to large based on other reviews. I am 5'11, 135. The shoulders and bust are roomy and it is huge at the hip (maybe this is why I'm cold). The sleeve length is ok, but I can't use the thumb holes because they are not quite long enough. I run with mittens, so this doesn't really bother me. However, for the price, I exoected more. If I can find something better, this may go back:(
-the green is NEON, so I am highly visible
-super light-weight, you will forget it is there
-zipper doesn't rub
-it's really not very warm. I need as many layers as I do with other less techy jackets.
-the waterproof inner pocket does not fit my iPhone 4. I have to force it in and it still sticks out by an inch. You can't see through the material, so I have to start my running app before forcing it in. The position of the pocket is low and my phone flaps against me. I have to use an arm band with this jacket, which is disappointing.
-it's not wind-proof, maybe just wind resistant
-after 1 run, it was a little smelly (5 miles on a 23 degree day) which seemed odd
-there's no way to cinch the waist
I bought this jacket so that I can keep up my running during the rainy season. I love the look of the jacket and feel that its very well constructed. I especially love the sleeve cutout at the bottom for my cold hands. On the not so great side, it is a little snug around my hips and I'm not that "hippy". I can zip the jacket but its snug. I typically wear a size M in a jacket and occasionally will wear a small. I have decided to return the M and get a Large. I just hope its not too big everywhere else. Other than that its an awesome jacket and I hope that the Large works out for me!

I got this jacket in the bright green. It looks great. I am between a small and a medium, so I got this jacket in a M. It was very snug in the shoulders and around the bust area. I am in the process of exchanging it for a L. So I have not used it yet, but I will write my opinion after I try it out in the future.
