An important layer to own
This jacket is an important layer for a rainy or windy day. It shields you from the elements and lets you concentrate on your run or walk.
When you do get warmed-up, I love folding the jacket up into the pocket! I wore in for part of a half-marathon race, left it on my arm and easily tossed it to my cheering friend to grab after the race.
It is also great to wear under a ski jacket during the winter months. The Vim jacket is also really easy to wash which is a big bonus when you sweat all over it.
- easy to carry, blocks the wind, looks great, zipper pockets
Love this jacket!
This has become my favorite jacket. It performs well in rain and wind and is not clingy when wet. The extra details of being able to contain the hood and stuff it in the pocket and carry it with the strap leave me with little I would change about it.
I am usually a size 6 in shirts and long sleeves but got a size Small in the jacket. I can comfortably fit a short and long sleeve under it at the same time, but wouldn't have enough room for a sweatshirt. So if you want to fit bulky layers beneath it, you may want to size up.

Vim is fabulous
I heart this coat! Ask anyone at work, I've worn it everyday since I got it. Just ordered my second one, have Midnight and getting Rio Red. It's water repellency held up to a steady WA rain for over 1 1/2hrs before I felt a little moisture come through. It's really soft and super lightweight.
Getting this second red one to wear horseback riding, a good visibility color and the windproof feature will make it a great trail riding jacket.
- Soft feel, lightweight, windproof, great fit
- Not a dislike but I'm a pocket fan and I'd love to have inside drop pockets
