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!
For the amount of money this cost I expected it to hold up better. I've worn it less than 10 times and the adjustable bottom hem has snapped. The zipper lost a tooth. I love oiselle bras and shorts, but I'm definitely going else where for a new jacket.
Still haven't heard from Oiselle. Do what you want with that I suppose.
08/12/2023 Oiselle still hasn't reached out. This coat isn't worth twenty dollars and clearly their customer service representative is a robot that can only say they'll contact you. It can't actually fix anything, but it's the thought that counts.
Thank you for your feedback on our Reflective Vim Jacket! Our customer care team will reach out to address your concerns and to make this right for you, and we will share your experience with our Design Team.
I love have both the vest and jacket version and they are two of my very favorite all-weather running layers. The jacket kept me seriously dry during a rainy/snowy 8 hour run last week, it was magic. Both pieces are also super warm - I can wear the vest at about 35F, and the jacket at 25F, with just a light layer underneath. I agree with other reviewers that they aren't very breathable, you get sweaty inside. Sizing is great, 5'3" 125 lbs and the small is perfect.
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.
