This jacket is pretty pricey at $199, and so I don’t think it’s worth it for that price point but stylistically I don’t completely hate it, and the two colors are great. This is a to-from rain jacket and not meant as a running jacket. This is a very roomy TTS and if you are petite this jacket is probably not for you due to the cropped width and the wide sleeves. Great for layering over sweaters though! I think the wide proportions of this jacket really swallow up a more petite shape but if you are tall you will probably pull this off and it will look really cute. I like the profile of this jacket and I’m kind of liking the back design details, but the front is just too wide on me even cinched in. I also really dislike this new hood/colar design that we also saw in the Pick Up The Pace LS. See how the front collar folds into the hood? I think this makes for a really strange neckline zipped up, and it really prevents the lapels of the jacket from laying nicely open if you have the neck zipped down.
I hate this collar!
There was a new WAFS Cool Racerback II in today and it was very soft. I didn’t try it on though because CRBII’s are not for me and I don’t like the price point of them.
