Reflective Vim Jacket
Vim Jacket! Beloved from the beginning, it's a staple in the line, embraced as a go-to lightweight shell, specifically designed for running and walking outdoors. Featuring our stay-safe reflective mesh, at chest, back, sleeves; plus a little brand magic - with a clipped logo on the rear. Other elements remain intact, including the premium windproof and water resistant fabric from Pertex™, adjustable hem and hood, full zip hand pockets, plus self-storage front pocket with elastic strap for easy carrying when the miles heat up!
I have tested a lot of wind breakers and this works very well. It also does a good job of repelling water. The only issue with these two things working so well is that the coat is not breathable so I end up with a lot of condensation inside my coat. I would recommend some venting to improve this. I was also really excited about the clip that holds the hood when you roll it up and it is one of my favorite features. However, when it is rolled up the cord and clip that allow you to cinch the hood bounces a lot when you are running. Also the piece of material that keeps the hood rolled up seems like it could rip any day. I use this coat on 10-15 degree days and so far I have been very happy with this purchase.
Love this light jacket! I keep it in my trunk with all my other misc running gear…hats, arm warmers, emergency change of clothes, pepper spray. Perfect optional layer when weather looks unpredictable. I am 6’ , 165lbs and the large is spot on. Arms are just long enough but not super generous. Glad I got the full zip and not the anorak- easier to remove mid run.
This fits me like a glove. I ordered a small - 5'6" 130 and it's perfect for me. I can get a long sleeve thick shirt underneath for warmth during the winter months 20 - 30 degrees running and it's light enough to wear when it's 50 degrees.
Had a 25k this weekend at Palo Duro Canyon, so I was expecting some big temperature fluctuations. It was in the low 50s at the start of the race, with temps climbing into the 80s. This was the perfect layer (over a wazzie wool tank and roll-with-it tights) for the first two miles. Was able to ball it up and zip it into its carrying pouch while on the move and wore it on my arm with the elastic strap until I hit the 5.5 mile aid station gear drop box. It was perfect! Surprisingly warm for how light it is. It also kept the chill out the next morning while I cooked my family breakfast at our campsite.
