Seattle Showers Vest
We added some updates to this vest to really take it up a notch. First a new adjustable hood, for sudden weather changes, or layering under a heavier piece. We also added the plush elastic in the stuff-sack hand pocket, so when you want to stash and carry, it's easy to put on your arm for hands-free running. In the back, we added a mesh panel with an overlay of the woven shell, that is then open to the air (while still providing protection from wind, rain, etc.) Then we added zip vents at the hem, on each side, so you can find that perfect fit and stay cooler when needed. The fit is roomy enough for easy layering. Vests... we believe in them, they are core to all-year running.
Summer 2022. I have 2 of the Vigor vests in a size medium. I am 5'4" and 160 pounds (what can I say, these past two years have been rough and I have put on some weight so I moved up a size to a large for this particular vest.). The medium vigor vest recently became tight across my chest with my weight gain so I bought this vest in a size large. This vest is loose everywhere else and longer than the Vigor vest but even in a size large it's still tight across the chest region. I wear a 36 C . Not sure if I will keep this item. Love the color and the pattern.
I love this vest! It is the perfect addition to a running wardrobe. I love that you can fold it into its own pocket for storage. The patterns are beautiful. The length is great. The fabric is great (i haven’t tested it’s water proof properties and likely never will - I use it to keep my body warm over a thin-ish long sleeve top when it’s chilly but not terribly cold.)
I ordered a small (as a gift for a friend) and a medium for myself. The medium is slightly too big and the small is just a bit tight across the chest (I’m not big chested at all) The sizing is so strange. I may end up keeping both and using them for different purposes.
I love all the oiselle products and find them to be of good quality - but the one issue I have is that the sizing is very off between different items.
This vest is the real deal. Hood, storage capacity, and venting on the sides?!? What?!?! I find myself putting it on more days than not this spring. Perfect for wind or rain. It fits a little roomier than the vigor vest, but definitely not bulky.
