This jacket seems great. However the sizing is incredibly small. I have two draws of t-shirts in my house all of them size L. On the advice of an earlier reviewer I ordered a size up to XL but this still came up small so had to send it back and get the XXL. I found that the XL was perfect for me in terms of its length and the width across my stomach etc, but I am quite broad (used to go to the gym a lot) and found that it was really tight across my back, chest and under the arms. I think if you look ion the photo they give it loks fitted in this area.

Really happy with this - especially as in my size (small) - it was only £15! A mens small would normally be way too big for me (being a female and size 10) but the comments about the sizing being so small made me think it might fit and luckily I was right. Apart from the sleeves being a tiny bit long you'd think it was a smallish female size so the sizing is definitely adrift. I love the idea of detachable sleeves - I have another sleeveless jacket which I wear on a lot of my runs in the winter but it will be useful to have something which I can wear with sleeves at the start on colder days. Taking the sleeves off seems easy enough (to put them back on mid run might be a bit fiddly but I can't see me wanting to do that unless there is a drastic change in weather conditions).
The material seems really good quality (although I wouldn't have ever paid the £50 or so if I'd wanted a larger size) and it has three very handy pockets.
In summary - any size 10/12 ladies who want a running jacket buy one now!

I wanted this jacket for running and having read that it was a tight fit (I am a slight build) I ordered one size up from my normal XS but it was still totally unwearable. It is very tight across the upper chest and underneath the arms and I am not a particularly muscular bloke.

Also, don't be fooled by the black bands around the bottom of the sleeves, there is no velcro attachment so the sleeves will be open to the elements. Not very good for anyone wanting to run in it.

So it was no use for me I'm afraid - back it goes.

I had this in my basket for quite a while and I wasn't disappointed when it arrived. It looks fantastic and the chest pocket gives very easy access to i phones etc for a quick check on strava! I have't run with the sleeves removed yet but on a couple of runs i wished I had as the jacket is very warm for it's relatively thin structure. One minor complaint is that it is a bit tight round the shoulders and chest area but this also means that the afore mentioned generic smart phone doesn't jiggle about in the chest pocket, so meh.

Other reviewers are right about the pulling under the arms. I ordered a medium but would normally select a small and even the medium is a bit snug under the arms, but it's comfortable enough for me not to return it. Great for keeping the cold wind out, nice material also. I also agree that the wrists could do with elasticated bands as they are quite open.

Jacket is excellent. Beware that the sizing is quite small and I needed an extra size up from usual.
The fit is excellent though and there's no fuss taking the sleeves off and putting them back on again. Feels like a quality product compared to some of the other running jackets I have and for the price it was an absolute bargain.

Highly recommended jacket. Good breathability, wind protection and very comfortable. Fits small size that it has. In my case, I usually have a small to medium size and for this jacket medium to larger fits correct in an adequate manner.

had to return this product, it looked good and fitted well around the waist and body but was way too tight under the arms and would have been difficult to run in. Dont think an extra size would have helped.

Atfer reading the reviews about it being tight on the shoulders and as I am quite broad and 6ft 3 I went with the XXL and this fits fine
Good quality jacket and keeps you warm in freezeing conditions
