Say Anything Jacket
Waterproof and breathable. It's the ultimate solution - now available in our pinnacle running jacket. Per usual, it starts with a five-star fabric; in this case from the scientists at Schoeller, a global leader in high performance, technical fabrics. As a 2.5 layered laminate, Schoeller's e3+ Protection Plus is designed specifically for high intensity output in high intensity weather. As you heat up, the textured interior keeps the fabric from sticking to your skin, while the specially designed laminate moves heat and moisture through the fabric while preventing rain and wetness from entering on the surface. To literally, seal the deal, all zippers are 100% waterproof, and every seam has been sealed, so no water can leak in. Add adjustability at the hood and hem, and it's the ultra lightweight water-proof shell that's ready for anything.
I am a huge fan of the Vim Jacket, and have worn it religiously for years. I wanted something a little more substantial for the upper Midwest winter, and the Say Anything jacket is perfect. I wore it on a recent run of 19 degrees air temperature with a windchill of 0 degrees, and I was comfortable and happy. I love this jacket!
I've purchased a few "waterproof" jackets from various running brands, but this one outperforms all the others. You can see the rain bouncing off of it! Ran for 30 minutes in Washington State-level rain and it was totally dry when I got home. Plus you can secure the hood so it stays on. I'm 5'3" and 115lbs and the XS fit perfectly.
This fits lovely, feels great and appears well made. I ordered the snap and in the images it looks orange / orange juice sort of fresh color. The reality is more like the little dot. I could land a plane in this. If you want bright nearly hi vis orange then get the snap. If you’re a little milder in your color choices maybe not. I haven’t tried it yet in could weather because I’m going to exchange. I’ll update
Conflicting thoughts on this jacket.
I’ve worn this for many shorter rainy runs (as well as walks) in the drizzle, so yesterday, I had a long run (13) on tap and figured this would be the perfect piece.
For almost two hours, the the jacket performed decently, but water was definitely permeating the sides and i could feel my shirt (flyout tank) getting damp. On top of that, water started pooling in the sleeves.
I could ignore all of that, as sometimes, you just have to accept getting wet while running in the rain. However, the true surprise came when I arrived back home to shower, and I discovered a large chafe mark on my neck, as a result of wearing the jacket zipped up.
I’m now unable to wear anything that touches my neck as the skin had rubbed off and it’s extremely painful. I am afraid to wear any coat zipped up now.
