Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This high tech wind shell by inov-8 is extremely light, but does an excellent job of protecting from wind and light rain. It breathes well and does not cling to the body when wet. It comes with a chest pocket and some reflective stripes and is in colors that are highly visible to traffic. It can be crushed into a mini-pouch so you can take it along for long runs where you might get rain or wind or you can start the run in the wind/cold and take it off to store when it warms up. Many wind shells are for winter or the colder spells; this one is for bridge seasons or mild winter days.
It is an athletic fit so I think it runs small for a runner with an average build. I exchanged the L for an XL (I am 5'11" and 170 #) and the one size up gave me a little more space and was not tight in the shoulders.
Very good lightweight windbreaker. Feels almost as if you are not wearing anything. Does a great job with light rain as well. Have not worn it in super heavy rain. The front pocket can hold a large cell phone, what more do you need?
Also really good build quality. Seams are sealed to keep wind out etc. Lots of double stitching etc.
Two things, 1: I wish it had pit zippers. can get a little hot and while you can get some airflow with the front zipper it could use a little more breathing. I realize they probably did not add this feature to keep weight down. 2: Its cut a little small. I am 5'8" and a hair under 200 pounds and I doubt anyone fatter than me would be able to wear the XL (the size I bought). Keep that in mind when ordering.
Otherwise, great jacket.
Very nice and quiet; trim fit (5-9" 153, but approx 5lb overweight), no restriction in movement, good construction, will be mindful of the elastic over time as there is no other adjustment.
