    Serves it’s purpose

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Got this for a good friend as a gift and she loves it! Great colorway and definitely serves its purpose!

    Wanted to Love it

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: X-Small

    I wanted to keep it but the fit just wasn't right for me. The jacket was just too big and baggy. Even with something under it was a big. I feel like it wouldn't perform as well being so big. I really liked the colors and look of it so I wish it fit better!

    Great against wind and sunrays

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    My girlfriend got one of these for herself and another for her sister. Completely recommended. This jacket is great for protecting yourself not only against the cold but also against the sun

    Nice, lightweight wind jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small

    This jacket gets the job done. It's definitely lightweight and protects you against the wind. For running and vigorous activity, it's not very breathable so you get pretty hot pretty quick but for hiking and casual wear it's great. In the picture I was out hiking on Antelope Island in Salt Lake City where the wind is pretty strong and it was perfect. Let me know if you have any questions!

    Nice, lightweight wind jacket

    Hi Jordan! I was just wondering if this is truly waterproof or just water resistant? (If there were a little puddle of water on it, would it ever leak through or no?)

    Bush Wacking in Denali, AK

      8 hour hike, up the tundra terrain to overlook Otto Lake in Healy, Alaska. Picked and ate a few wild blueberries on my way! Mmm...

      Love it!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small

      I use this jacket while I jog for that added wind protection. extremely lightweight, almost sheer. The fit is nice and loosely fitted. Cinched hand openings, cinched hood and waist option. I like how light and easy it is to run in this, rather than being weighed down. I also use these jacket on light hikes and sometimes just casually around town because I like it ;) I'm a size 6 and ordered a small and it fits perfectly!
