Lightweight and comfortable

Really happy with this jacket. I have another heavier running jacket (The Solomon one with the zip off sleeves) that's fantastic, but wanted something a bit more lightweight for when it gets down into the high 40s/50s. This fit the bill!

First, it looks great. Second, it packs really small into its own pocket. The final packed size is about 3/4 the size of my hand. And Brooks though to include a clip so when it's packed up you can clip it to things like your backpack. Really great idea!

Regarding performance, I find it works well in its intended weather category (cold-ish, windy). It really shines. Unfortunately the fabric is not too breathable, but there is a big vent in the back that does the job surprisingly well.

I like that it has dual elastic adjustment points around the waist and an elastic adjustment on the head. I can basically tailor it to fit. Wouldn't have minded a little velco adjustment on the wrist cuffs, but that's no big deal as the elastic cuffs do the job well.

Regarding the hood adjustment, it basically hugs your head when adjusted properly. Whether I'm wearing a ball cap, a beanie, or nothing, the hood stays tight. It's really nice to not have to worry about it coming off at all. Adjust it and forget it.

The front pocket is fine for small things like credit cards and could hold a phone if you wanted. The lack of side pockets is unsurprising in this as it's a very lightweight jacket and side zippered pockets would really add a substantial percentage to the weight. I'm glad they're not there, especially because I really just grab a credit card and some cash on my runs, so no need for excess storage space personally.

The hood DOES catch the wind though, when you're not wearing it. A gust front he front ensures the hood balloons up like a parachute and a gust from the rear ensures that the hood annoyingly flaps in your face. Unlike side pockets, some sort of hood stay would have been worth the extra weight. However, rather than letting the hood fall behind you, you can fold it inward. As long as your jacket is zipped up, folding the hood so it sits between the jacket and your back will keep it in place and the way the collar looks, you would almost mistake this for a hood-less jacket. That's a good enough solution for me for now.

Regardless, this is the best lightweight windbreaker I've ever owned.

Great jacket

Hood fits great. I did not experience any ballooning in wind, either with the hood up or down. Had never run with a hood before, but it works well. Stays in place well. Also, at the waist, on the sides there are two elastic straps you can pull to draw the jacket tight to your waist to help retain heat. That was one selling point with me. The vent across the back at shoulders is generous and works well. The jacket dries very quickly, which is a plus for me. The way the pocket works is you flip the coat inside out, and start stuffing it in its pocket. Zipper is designed to work from both sides. Storing my gloves or keys in the chest pocket while running also works well. Was worried that contents would bounce or bother me, but it works well. I wanted a lightweight jack to help with wind and rain protection. I'm very pleased with it. I think the label says its good for use down to 40 deg F. This is about right. I bought it for runs or back pack trips where I might need a lightweight layer of protection. If I wanted more protection, I would bring a heavier jacket designed for more inclimate weather. It looks better than the photos too. Am pleased with it.

Light Minimalist Jacket

I use the jacket for runs when the weather dips down into the 40's-70's. I also use the jacket as a very light shell for UL backpacking.

Polyester is not the most breathable fabric, but it has a vent on the back which is a good design. The jacket packs into it's own pocket and will fit into your pants pocket, glovebox, backpack, ect. It will pack to the size of your palm. I am very pleased with the hood as it is large(enough to fit my big head and big dreadlocks).

REI did not carry the black jacket in store when I visited, so I chose the blue which seems less flashy than the orange/red. Both catch the eye.

Overall a great jacket in classic Jardine style design.

Great Jacket, minor drawbacks

I run 25 miles a week, mostly at night; wind or rain. Absolutely wind proof and although not advertised as waterproof, it's very good in the rain. Technically, the seams aren't sealed, but after 8 miles I was still dry. Super lightweight and comfortable-I love this jacket! Another big plus for me is that it's not a noisy fabric. Only two minor negatives: (1) no hood pocket (it balloons in the wind; (2) need to wear long sleeves underneath because moisture builds up in the sleeves and can be uncomfortable (the sleeves can stick to your arms).

Fabulous jacket!

I love this jacket. I actually have two. I wear it above 20 degrees with various layers underneath. It cuts the wind, helps keep in body heat, and dries fast. It also packs well. I stow the jacket in my fanny pack when cycling and the air turns cool on the ride. I recommend this jacket for someone wanting a lightweight outer running jacket. It has lacks hand pockets, but if you put anything in the breast pocket, it might tear the fabric, since it is thin.

Buy it!! Great price.

Saved My Bacon!

I picked this up last minute because I started to get worried that it might rain on my run the following morning. Sure enough, it was a downpour! The Lite Jacket kept me from freezing! The parts of skin that were exposed (hands and thighs), were bitter cold. The Lite Jacket kept the rain and wind out - worth every penny!

Definitely worth it.

This jacket is paper thin. It's really meant for running and maybe light hiking. It's not waterproof but it does keep the wind out. It does have a big vent in the back, but can get steamy if you're really exerting yourself. It looks good and for the price it was worth it.

Good companion

Handy water resistant layer that I carry in my pack when running, city exploring or hiking. Easy to keep in a cargo pocket or pack just in case of light rain or unexpected wind. I bought it last year and loved it so much I bought another color this year.

Stylish but not super helpful

I've used this as a VERY thin shell, and beyond that you'd likely be disappointed and cold or wet. I bought this originally because the tag from Brooks described it as wind and water resistant. Living in Northern Illinois, we rarely get wind that is less than 10 mph. Anything that is greater than this or more than a spit drizzle and this jacket doesn't cut it. I've run in Seattle and Upper Michigan as well and don't see it fitting these climates either. Maybe more of a Southern CA or FL runner would get to use this more than a month out of the year.

On a few shorter test runs of 4 miles, I used it in a steady ran, and water soaked through to my skin within 15 minutes. I then used it on a drizzle and it faired much better. It proved to be a good shell for water resistance without having to wear something heavier when the day didn't call for it.

This is a second jacket, not the one you'll grab if the temp is lower than 50, or the wind and rain constant. On the positive side, unlike many shell jackets, this one is built specifically for running and functions comfortably for this.
