Fit and Feel
I'm very fussy when it comes to my running clothing.
I look for softness to the touch, style, good technical fabric, flattering fit and colour...not too much to ask ;-)
Did I find all this in the ON Weather Jacket?
Yes, I did.
I love the slim fit. It drives me nuts when a jacket flaps around, so the fact that I pop this on and don't even notice it, is a huge plus for me. Coincidentally, I've also noticed that once a customer puts one of these jackets on, she/he doesn't want to take it off again. I love the details, especially on the cuffs. There's no rubbing or scratchy seams, it's pure softness caressing the wrists.
One of the reasons that I don't even notice this jacket on, is due to the 4-way stretch Japanese fabric. Whatever which way I move, the jacket moves with me.
The engineered hood is also a dream to use. The rim has the same soft, silk like feel around the face as the cuffs on the sleeves, which gives a perfect and comfy fit.
There's also a breast pocket with a water resistant zip, which the entire running jacket an be folded into.
The 360° ventilation really does work to offer a second-to-none experience in terms of breathability. I have used this ON weather jacket in literally opposite weathers conditions.
I used it on my way to an early morning high-intensity class in humid New York's summer heat. As there was a tiny bit of a breeze at 5am, I put it on top of a lightweight tee. After the (rather fun and sweaty) workout, I wore it on the subway home, and was amazed that I felt none of that horrid sticky feeling that would come with a cheaper, less breathable running jacket.
I have also used it in the cold with a thicker thermal underneath, and it was perfect. To me, this proves that it's a bit of class!
As for the waterproofness, it's not 100% but the DWR treatment works more than adequately for a good water-repellent jacket.
This running jacket is easy to use. Both women's and men's look great ON – excuse the pun ;-) The attention to detail makes this a joy to wear. I love the look, the feel, the sheer class of this beautiful jacket. Thank you, ON!
