When you live in the Northwest, where any day might qualify as “April Showers” you learn a thing or two about running in the rain. Or walking, skipping, scurrying around the rain. Enter the April Showers Anorak. Yes, it’s water resistant and fully ready to run, but it’s also ready to rock as a windbreaker or added layer of protection against changing weather. A classic, loose fit designed to go over base layers, it’s also got a front zip pocket for all your carrying needs.
Ok, it’s not good in the rain but it is super cute, has plenty of pockets & the Lemon vest just puts a spring in my step.
This is NOT a light weight rain jacket like the name would lead you to believe. It is a windbreaker. I wore it to walk my dog in a light drizzle and was SOAKED through immediately. If I were wearing this running, it would do no good. It is cute, but save your money for a better jacket if you want to stay dry.
Wore this in a light drizzle, and it was fine. Once the rain actually started, I was soaked through. The zipper gets stuck when zipping the external pocket which was very frustrating in the rain, and it also gets stuck when storing the jacket as a pouch. It is cute but doesn't breathe at all. I was wet and/or hot the entire time I was in it. This is the only disappointing product I have ever purchased from Oiselle.
I wore this on a run in a steady/heavy drizzle that turned into rain and I got soaked through (mostly on the arms). So it's definitely not waterproof at all! It did seem to work ok in the light drizzle. It was still very comfortable to wear in the rain, probably more comfortable than other tops. It kept me a perfect balance between cool and warm. And I think it's really cute!
