Rated5out of5byKatieWfromFantastic jacket (better than the photo)I purchased the jacket in Glow/Grayeen for running in cool/cold weather and outdoor visability. It's definitely bright enough, but a pleasing yellow, not too glaring. Also, the non-yellow areas are a very nice grey, not green.
The inside lining is a great perforated wicking fabric and would be comfortable to wear over a sports bra or tank top. The back has a number of ventilation slits. The collar and wrists are fleece-lined for warmth and comfort. The hidden hood is thin, but perfect for extra wind or light water protection.
I'm 5'5" and 120 lbs and the small fits me perfectly. It's body skimming, but with enough room for up to a thin fleece base layer underneath. The sleeves are plenty long enough. The body hits just below my hips in the front and dips down a couple inches for extra coverage in the back. Unlike the photo, it's a very slimming jacket without bagginess under the arms or in the body, yet I can move comfortably.
I have yet to test it in various weather conditions, but I have no doubt that it will hold up well as a jacket for outdoor winter activities down to 0 degrees F as the product states.
