What She Said! - by , Dec 02, 2017
4/ 5 Stars
I agree with the previous reviewers: if you're looking for a wind-resistant, water-resistant jacket for high-intensity outdoor activities -- running, cross-country skiing, cycling -- the Vitarun is a great choice. If you're looking for an all-purpose jacket for doing errands, walking the dog, going to the gym, and working out, the Vitarun won't do, as it's too snug to accommodate heavy-duty layering. For temperatures in the 40s or 50s, the jacket is warm enough to run with just a tank or a fitted t-shirt as a base layer; for frigid temperatures, you may need to wear an additional layer on the outside (e.g. a fleece vest or light-weight jacket). Fit-wise, I took a size small (I'm 5'8" and 130 lbs.), and was able to layer two fitted, long-sleeve shirts underneath the jacket without feeling too constrained. If I were bustier or more muscular, however, I would have definitely sized up to a medium for a roomier fit.

Looks sharp, feels cozy - by , Nov 29, 2017
5/ 5 Stars
I am in love with this jacket. I got it in black. It is the perfect thickness. Love the pattern on the inner fleece lining. The right pocket has an elastic band for keys and a credit card pocket. My iPhone won’t fit in the chest pocket but that’s what the left pocket is for :) The only thing is that the jacket is narrow in the shoulders. Also, as other reviewers have said, the thumb holes are a little high up. Still I’m going to stick with this size because it looks really sharp and is super cozy. Love this jacket.

Hmm...Looking sharp, feeling cozy. There's a song there somewhere.. :) Thanks for the awesome review!

Awesome winter layer - by , Apr 12, 2017
5/ 5 Stars
I love this jacket! It's warm and roomy enough to easily accommodate a thicker base layer underneath, but form fitting enough to add a sweatshirt on top. It stops wind in its tracks and is soft and cozy, but very moisture resistant. The pockets are awesome too, though I wish the small chest pocket was slightly larger (my iPhone 6s doesn't fit in it). I also agree with the previous reviewer who said the sleeves are a bit short -- I had the same issue, and can't comfortably use the thumbholes. I wore a thick base layer, this jacket and the Ridge Runner hoodie on top during a -10 degree race this winter and felt great! Overall, a great investment for winter running!

Very good but... - by , Dec 03, 2016

I am a size 4 (5.7, 125) and ordered a Small. I was going to return it as the sleeves with the thumb holes hooked are too short and pull my shoulders. However, I awoke to rain and 49 degrees this morning. This is the only day I have time for a long run and I decided to wear it. In truly drenching rain and wind it did great. I had some drips up where I could not thread my thumbs and down from my pony tail but my core stayed warm for my 4 hours out. If I had sized to a medium there would have been too much room to stay warm. The jacket moves well and is not noisy. If the sleeves were an inch longer it would have been five stars.
