Highly recommended. Kept me a warm happy runner 🙂 True to size. Im 5’2, 120 lbs and small gives you enough room for your jersey without feeling constricted at all. It’s a great jacket for cool breezy days. Definitely need to wear long sleeved-cool gear underneath if you plan to run on a rather moist 40 degree weather or below. Learn how to take & stow the sleeves off so you wont be wasting unnecessary energy figuring it out while running. Side pockets are roomy enough for sports beans or gu. Left chest pocket fits my iphone4s perfectly. Removable sleeves folds small & secured in back packet. It can get a bit bulky in the behind if you have a fuel belt but not a big deal 🙂

Great jacket This jacket is light weight but blocks the wind well on cool fall days. The sleeves are easy to remove if you get too hot, leaving the vest to block the wind from your core. Cycling clothes seem to run small, and I wear a size twelve, so I ordered an XXL…but I probably could have gone with an XL instead.. The jacket is a bit big, but I can put layers under it when it gets colder. Great jacket for the price.

Pear Izumi Women’s Barrier Convertible jacket I am a petite size 2; jacket fits well, except sleeves are too long. However, velcro cuffs help keep them from hanging too long. Otherwise, pleased with this jacket.
