FIRECRACKER REFLECTIVE HALF ZIP
New to the line, this lightweight shell has been beautifully pieced with our premium reflective mesh, for a bold and safety-first design. It's the dawn or dusk jacket that you can throw on over anything. Relaxed in fit, with an extra long center front zipper for easy on/off. The shell fabric, same as used throughout our outerwear line, is both windproof and water resistant, but light enough so that you won't overheat.
- polyester shell with reflective detailing
- rain/wind resistant
- front zipper
- interior drawcord for adjustability
- 24.5" body length (size small)
I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I might like this even more than my beloved Vim jacket... I haven't put this one through the ringer yet, the way I have the Vim, but so far, it's fantastic! This kept me warm and dry on a rainy winter run. Sometimes in the Vim, I find moisture beading on the inside. So far, I haven't had that problem with this. During normal times, I run-commute and I love having a huge swatch of reflective material for New England winter, where it's dark at 4:00.
My only complaint is there are no pockets - a sad mid-run revelation when I tried to stash my gloves.
I alternate between XS and S and went with the XS for this. The shoulders are a hair snug, but overall I prefer the way it looks and feels. My size small Vim has always felt a little too big.
Although I did not need another jacket/shell, the reflective strips on the arms and angled portions grabbed my attention. I've worn it a few times since the time change and cooler temps, and it is the perfect mixture of a light layer to stay warm (not hot!) and safe on small rural roads without a shoulder. Much gratitude for this shell!
I was looking for a super high-vis lightweight jacket for those sunrise and sunset runs - this jacket is perfect! The generous reflective pieces make it impossible for cars/ cyclists to miss you, and the lightweight material is perfect for layering. I've worn this in 35-55F degree weather over a long or short sleeve and it's just right. Plus something about the way the jacket looks is kind of retro and swanky, so I feel like a badass. Don't miss out on this Oiselle gem!
