Was looking for a lightweight, breathable waterproof/resistant rain jacket, for exercise and morning runs when it's too wet to go without one. This one is a bit heavier and less breathable than I anticipated -- but it's triple layered (outer shell, water resistant coating, inner lining [mostly mesh] thoughout). Coating isn't Gore-tex (of course not at this price) -- water resistance it very good, breathability so-so. Nice features include four zipped pocket; removable hood (adjustable opening around face, but not adjustable for length). Some reflective elements but not exactly high-vis (blue/black version is on the dark side). Happy with my purchase (a steal at sale price!), but I'll probably use more as my casual rain jacket for light to medium rain conditions, probably not so much for severe weather or for strenous activities where's I'd prefer a lighter more breathable alternative

Did the job in rain and snow
I live in LA, spent Xmas in snowy Upstate NY - but needed to keep training. This jacket kept me dry and warm in heavy snow and heavy not-quite-freezing rain on several 6-16 mile runs.
Pockets are big and useful. Chest iPod pocket is great. The hood kept riding either too low or too high, but eventually I managed to get it to stay put.
Sleeve, neck and waist cinches mean you can start warm and cool off as you go, but I found that sweat pooled in the elbows and would pour out of my sleeves when I stopped for traffic. I may poke some holes in the elbows to vent sweat.

It's a champ
This jacket fits the slot between windbreaker and cold weather top. I wore it the next day in 38 degrees, rainy and windy, and was toasty warm and dry. This jacket does everything I had hoped it would do. The only downside was that I could not really figure out the hood storage on the outside. A diagram would have been helpful.
My salesperson was superb in helping me find the sale price on this item. She was great! If only all sales people were as courteous and helpful as she was!

Great buy and performance
I bought this jacket as I was going to be running in wet weather in the UK for quite some time. This fit the bill perfectly except for one thing...wet elblows. As mentioned by previous reviewers sweat accumulates in the sleaves. It presented an issue when I ran out with the wind and turned around to face very high and cold wind. The idea of drain holes is great and should be incorporated into version 2.
Great jacket so far-
I used this replace a much older Road Runner rain jacket. I had run the pants to death previously, and was shopping for a new ensemble when I found this. It's a great replacement for my old gear. It's sized better, fits better, better materials, more comfortable overall. I tend to layer up on the colder days and it as well as the pants I bought with it are working out very well.
Nice wind protection
I just purchased this jacket this weekend to handle the cold in Chiberia, it worked! I wore the jacket this morning in 0 degree weather with a good base layer and I was very warm. It kept the wind out and the hood is a nice plus. Like one other reviewer commented I did find that sweat gathered in the elbows, it was not a big deal. I highly recommend for cold weather over a good base layer.
Looks great but did not breath
I experienced the same as Kyle. This jacket fits well, looks good, and kept the wind out but for most workouts was not breathable. By the end of the run I'm soaked with perspiration whether in rain or no rain. The ventilation vent at the back was not sufficient for me. I ended up upgrading to the R-Gear Best Defense GORE-TEX Jacket, Item #RRM1092.

a really great jacket
i like this jacket to use in windy cold days
it keeps me warm and when i sweat on the inside the fabric is not wet on the outside so the wind doent hit my wet layers.'the wrists have velcro for a tight fit so wind doesnt get up the sleeve.
its also waterproof for the rain

Waterproof as advertised
Have worn this jacket once for a two hour run. Snowed two inches while I was running. It kept me from getting wet from the outside in but my long sleeved shirt was still quite wet from perspiration even though the temperature was about 25 F. Perhaps I should have worn a thinner shirt but I'm not sure it would have helped.

Hubby Loves His New Rain Jacket
This was a gift for my husband who is getting back into the workout scene and needs sturdy rain gear while working out in overcast and rainy Belgium. So far so good. He seems to like to warmth, wind/waterproof quality of the jacket and all its pockets! Great quality for a fair price!

Awesome cold weather jacket
I love this coat for cold weather. It is warm and light. My only disappointment is I didn't buy more then one color. Prior to this coat I was wearing many layers ,now I apcan wear much less and not be bogged down and be warmer..

Incompatible with apple products
Causes significant interference with the iPhone and watches BT stack on iOS 10.2 (not in the way you'd think). Other than that, it's a great coat. If you don't use an apple watch you're probably ok - hence the 4 stars.
Watch in the woods
Love long distance triathlons...this jacket allows me to run in the cold/rain. Hood can be detached (snaps in/out of place). You won't go wrong w/ this jacket.

This jacket fits well and looks good, but for most workouts, it's too warm and not breathable. By the end of the run I'm soaked with perspiration.
Quality Product .
I would buy this jacket again and I would recommend it . This jacket provides a great outer layer. I layer appropriately for the temperature underneath and this jacket takes care of the rain and wind . I use this jacket primarily for bike riding and paddle tennis . It works well for both. One small concern for the paddle tennis is that the arms are a bit tight .
Great Outer Layer. Very protective in windy and wet conditions. Loved the jacket so much that I bought a second one for casual wear.
Rain and Cold Gear that works!
I use this gear when I walk and for casual wear. it feels great. It is perfect for windy, cold or wet weather.
