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.
- hood and hem adjustability
- taped seams
- zippered hand pockets
- elastic-finished wrist
- 24" body length (size small)
I got this jacket as a holiday gift. I was looking for a lightweight layer to do double-duty as a precipitation and wind protector. Though this is NOT a windbreaker, it works decently as an added layer when it is cold and windy. It's lightweight and easy to move in. I've taken it out in temps as low as the high 20s F with moderate winds. It works great keeping me warm! Today is the first time I took it out in warmer weather and rain- mid 50s F and a steady rain. Again, works great keeping the rain out!
I have 2 gripes with this jacket. The first of which is the hood could use a back cinch. Cinching with the sides makes the hood hit my eyes so I need to wear a hat with a visor with it (which doesn't really work in wind) or not wear it all (which isn't ideal in either wind or rain).
The second and bigger problem I have with this jacket is that it isn't actually all that breathable. Every time I've worn it, it has collected sweat on the inside of the jacket so my clothing is damp. It is keeping me warm by keeping my body heat in but kind of defeats the purpose if I'm just going to be drenched after a rainy run anyways. I thought maybe this was because for my winter runs I was wearing a lot of layers. But today's run I only had my flyte long sleeve on and it's like I stood out in the rain for a bit without a jacket.
With that said, I like many things about it but I'm somewhat disappointed in how expensive this jacket is for the performance with just being damp anyways.
I didn't get what all the fuss was with this jacket, but I snagged it in the Outerwear sale and: wow! I get it now! I wore this for a 6 mile run in a 40* steady rain and stayed totally dry and comfortable without the usual clammy feeling of many waterproof jackets. And the hood stays up! I usually think hoods on running jackets are a waste, but this one does the trick. I love that the sleeves are long enough to pull down over my hands. I'm 5'8", 125 lbs and usually a 4, xs/s at O and went with the small in this. I could have possibly done an xs, but I think I'll appreciate the extra bit of room for layers when it's colder. I'm also not much of an orange girl, but I got this in Crackle and adore it! It's a beautiful sherbet melon color (not neon) and I like the brightness for visibility.
I'm so in love with this jacket! Day 1: it was a perfect windbreaker for ~45 F/light breezy conditions. I wore a short-sleeved shirt under it and was the perfect temperature. Everything about this jacket rocks: true to size, color (Crackle) is *amazing*, material is light and soft, sleeve cuffs aren't too tight, zippered pockets are secure. While I haven't yet run in the rain in this, I can tell that it will be the perfect light layer to keep my core dry. I got a small and it fits perfectly with a couple of layers (I'm 5'8", 140 lbs.), though some people might want to go a size up if you were a lot of layers/thick shirts. You won't be disappointed by this one.
I picked this out for my husband to get me for Christmas and was thrilled to get it slightly on sale. I went with the bright orange to be more visible in the snow, and so far I’ve worn it as my top layer on cold New England runs, walks, snowshoe hikes and cross-country skiing. It fits well; I am an athletically built middle-aged mom, 5’1” and a small or XS in most clothes. The size small jacket works well. This morning, it was in the 20’s temp-wise with gusty winds, and I had four thin layers under it! Got plenty toasty. I like the elastic cuffs, the hood, and the fact that I can toss it in the wash regularly -let it air dry. My only complaint is that because of how the pockets hit my hip/upper thigh, if I run with my phone in the pocket, it bangs against me somewhat...I need to secure the phone to my body another way, I suppose. If you edit this jacket going forward, consider a chest or arm pocket that could fit a phone.
This jacket is so great and has gotten me through a snowy New England winter. Paired with a double layer of Wazzie Wool it's everything I need. I've run in it in driving rain and I did end up damp at the end of an hour, but it's pretty water resistant, and it works well in the wind and snow. It's a little stretchy and really flexible, which I love. The small works well for me (5'8" 135#.) Obsessed with it.
My best friend sent this to me as a gift, and it’s the greatest item of running gear I never knew I was missing. It’s a most versatile top layer for runny, windy and just plain cold runs—never overheats but keeps warmth in, even if you're a sweat monster. Has enough stretch to pull over your gloves for an extra wind shield to keep your hands warm. I am absolutely obsessed with this jacket.
Love the fit and feel of this jacket. Great during a windy cold run. Stretchy so very comfortable. have not worn it in rain yet, but based on others' reviews expect it will perform very well. I know I will have this for years--super high quality piece with all the details.
My search for a lightweight, waterproof jacket is finally complete thanks to the say anything jacket. I tried it on a rainy long run and it held up. I even wore it while it was snowing with just a long sleeve shirt at 20F. It is just the perfect jacket. I am normally a size 8 in pants but a size small in shirts, which makes it super tricky to find the right jacket to fit loosely around my hips. I got a medium and it was perfect.
