- Portland, OR
True to Its Name
Makes a great wind breaker for chilly conditions and is a great layer for April Showers type weather. A good option for someone who runs too warm for a full jacket. And you would never guess it really does fold up in to the little chest pocket (because it actually isn't that little...I can fit my sunglasses in it).
- The fit is really nice.
- Not much! I would love to see this in other patterns/colors.
I was skeptical about how useful a thin water-resistant vest could be, but now I finally understand - it is the ultimate outerwear for drizzly late winter/spring runs in the Pacific Northwest. I think it resists water even better than the vim/vigor material, for reference. If rain is in the forecast during your training schedule this is super easy to pop on for an extra layer of warmth & weather protection without overheating. I love how tiny it packs up, it's super easy to stash if it turns out I don't need it. A wazzie wool layer underneath may be the magic combo for wet running comfort.
- Fits great, is surprisingly water resistant, stash pocket!
