Sleet Sprinter Jacket TTS 10, and sized up to a 12
I liked the Sleet Sprinter Jacket today. It’s got a very streamlined elegant look with the pleated back and taped zipper. I have the &Go Anorak from a few years ago that I got on sale and it has similar stylings so I didn’t come home with this, but I did like the overall shape of the jacket. I needed a size up in this to layer over a RULU long sleeve and so that the bottom flared out nicely but the TTS was fine too. I don’t think the price point for this jacket is correct though – it’s not water proof despite having a taped zipper. The underarm panels are a polyester knit tech fleece so thats definitely an area where water will come in – but it’s nicely warm and soft on the inside. I think this will be great for cold winter runs that aren’t extremely wet. The zipper peep hole for a run watch is a really nice feature. Overall this jacket is really nicely designed specifically for run, while still having a really sophisticated urban look. This is something I’ll be watching for markdown.

Scuba Hoodie IV TTS 10
I’m sorry that I forgot to bring in my Scuba Hoodie III for comparison but I do have some fit observations on this one. I feel like it’s longer than my Barkberry Scuba in the same size, and possibly more relaxed fitting around the middle because of the added length. The material is thinner but it’s stretchy and very soft. I liked the fit of this overall and I don’t think it’s lesser than the Scuba III, but it is thinner. I ordered this last night because I love Nocturnal Teal, but after trying this scuba on I don’t really feel like I need it. It’s just not that special looking in person for $128. Had it had some special feature like rose gold zipper, or a beautifully embroidered logo, I may have felt the lust for it.
Sculpt Tank II TTS 10
I didn’t think I’d like the updated fit of the Sculpt II but it’s actually not bad. It’s much less boxy in the chest and around the armholes since it cuts in more narrow. The length is nice and the fit around the middle is generous. My one complaint about it is I don’t like the amount of mesh that is in the back. I think the mesh on the original sculpt tank was prettier and more subtle.
Outrun LS sized up to 12
I tried this on in my TTS for a previous fit review but today I wanted to try on the size up. I much prefer this sized up and it came home with me. I’m starved for rulu long sleeves this year. I wish this was a little bit more like the Tuck & Flow LS and I wish it didn’t have that dropped seam at the arms, but otherwise I really like this LS, and in particular this color. I find this top has the softest and thickest rulu of all the rulu tops out this year. It’s selling out online already which is unusual these days, so I opted to take advantage of the long holiday return period on this one.
