INSULATED VIM JACKET
It's the ever-popular Vim Jacket but with the added benefits of Polartec Alpha Direct. Lightweight, warm and soft, it's the insulation that's designed to sit next to skin. When your workout heats up, it easily wicks moisture from your skin and out through Pertex's shell fabric. When you cool off, it's like a lightweight fleece that's ultra warm, even as it stays lightweight and packable.
- 100% polyamide shell
- Polartec Alpha Direct lightweight insulation
- front zip hand pockets
- hood with toggle for adjustability
- 24.75" body length (size small)
I tried and returned an absurd number of winter running jackets from other companies before finding this beauty. It is flattering - warm without being bulky and hits me at the perfect length. I can layer underneath it without feeling like a stuffed sausage. Even kept it on after my run to walk the dog in a steady ran (for over an hour) and my shirt underneath never got wet! For reference I’m 5’4” 125lbs and I got a small.
I run cold and have been searching for a warm outer layer that could easily be peeled off as the long run warms up. This jacket is perfect, especially for temperatures below 30 degrees. While that might seem hard to believe based on its weight, it's true! It's also wind resistant and wicks sweat perfectly.
It does run slightly larger than many running companies' outer layers. I'm typically a medium and could have easily gone with a small in this. It's not a "con" though, because it's more true to size. Well done, Oiselle.
