Love this

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

This is definitely a running "nice to have" fashion running piece, but one I indulged in anyways. Does a good job of keeping my core warm when I need a little bit more insulation there - including wind resistance. I run hot, so the lighter fabric works really well for me. I love the pockets - since I often run with my dog the ability to store dog related items away is a huge bonus. The most pleasant surprise with this was the style factor. I love the cut - the racerback is dramatic and looks fantastic on an athletic build and there's a tapering up in the front line that allows more coverage over my bum and is the right length to prevent annoying fabric bunches above my thigh. This is also obviously cut for a athletic build, which I appreciate! I have the black tie-dye which is slightly asymmetrical (more pattern on one side of the zipper than the other) but not in a way that I dont think looks good. I'm 5'5 and ordered a small (even thought in some clothing items I can be a medium). For this reason, I'd recommend going one size down - fit is loose. All in all, very happy with this purchase.
