Small through the bust

I am a 32D and reliably wear size 4/small tops at Oiselle. Size small in the vest was too tight through the bust causing a ripple in the front and some weird bunching over my lower back. Otherwise, very cute. BB blue is bright and pretty. "Oiselle" really pops on the blue background. Reflective stripes very reflective. Ordering medium, hoping it's not too loose through the belly.

Kept me comfortable all winter

I wore this pretty much every morning while training for a marathon through a New England winter and it was exactly what I needed. Warm tights, long sleeves, and this vest was my uniform for the 20 degree dark morning runs. Never too warm or too cold. I tend to get very warm once I get started, even when it's below freezing, so I can't usually wear a jacket (the exception this year was the -20 wind chill on one run). Originally bought a small but exchanged for XS so it would be more snug over a base layer. If you plan on wearing this over more than one layer it's true to size. Reflective touches are nice but I would have like a bit more since this is definitely a winter item for me and will nearly always be worn in the dark!

Fits well, lightweight, a keeper

Have been looking for such a shell vest (without a hood) for a while and this vest is it! Runs 1/2 size large... Im usually a size large, 8-10 in athletic tops across all brands and this large is slightly loose which I like. Has a lightweight drawcord at the bottom that keeps it in place. 5'5" and the length is at the upper thigh. Water resistant- running in a downpour for an hour and ended up only damp. Stays in place. So light that I forget I'm wearing it. A keeper!

Fits well, lightweight, a keeper

The perfect shell for rainy runs. Lightweight, stays in place, doesnt ride up at all because of a thin cord at the bottom. I forgot I was wearing it. No hood which is a bonus for me bc I hate flopping hoods. Runs a touch big. Im a large in almost all athletic tops, size 6-8 top, and bought a large which is loose but not baggy. Water resistant.... Used this in a downpour and I came out damp, but it could have been much worse. I thought $100 was initially pricey for a shell, but after using it Im very pleased. It will be a go to piece that I have been look for

Amazing!

You guys! This vest! It’s perfect for fall weather in Chicago. I wore it over my long sleeve Flyte tee for a chilly, rainy 55 degree 5K and it was perfect. My core was warm and dry while everything else got drenched. I just I just wore it over a tank in a humid 65 degrees and it was perfect. I’m busty (36DD) so I got an XL so I could layer. Probably could have gotten an L but I’m really pleased with the fit. I’m on the petite side, it’s longer in the back and it just covers my butt. The pockets are big and it has a nice reflective stripe for visibility. This will carry me through the fall season!

warmer than expected

Fit: the sizing was good. I am a 4 in tops and a 6 in bras, and I ordered a small. No need to size up. I tried a medium and it was too big.

Now, the function: I layer with a vest for most of my cold runs (30-50º), and while bike commuting. I get way too hot in jackets so vests are usually perfect. Unfortunately, despite how thin it is, the vest is too good at what it does... almost like a rain jacket, it doesn't breathe much. I have finished each run and ride that I've worn it on with a damp, sweaty lower back. It's not the worst thing, but it's uncomfortable.

I wish I had known just how warm this makes you.

Perfect for a stormy Boston!

I've run in this vest all winter and it's been perfect for Seattle weather... not too warm like a jacket might be, just perfect. It really proved itself at Boston this week however where it kept the wind off my core even tho I was soaked through. I think it played a big part in me hitting my A goal and requalifying for next year. Love it!
