micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
Bought this about 2 wks ago and so far very happy. Shields from the wind well, repelled a pretty heavy downpour, fits well and looks good. Reflective pattern is a nice touch. Could do with a couple of pockets perhaps.
Product quality is great no doubt about it. I'm sure it will stand rain and heavy wind. It's much thicker than expected and since it is a pullover. Putting it on kind of made me feel a little claustrophobic as you have to go trough thick nylon material. I'm a girl and want something casual to wear on unanticipated windy nights at parks/theme parks etc. I'm still deciding if I'm keeping it but for the quality it is pretty good material.
All in all a not a bad product. Material used is relatively thick and strong, the only problem is the size, I bought a small and it was still way to big for me, I would recommend purchasing the next size down.
What a let down! I've been working toward the day that I would cross the finish line of the Boston Marathon since 1980... and figured if I ever did I would treat myself to an official jacket. But, seriously, hospital green?!? I thought the Boston Marathon colors were blue and gold. Such a disappointment. ADIDAS = All Day I Dream About Some jacket other than this one.
I purchased this jacket because I wanted something to remember the 2016 Boston Marathon. I worked hard to get to Boston! I would have preferred the traditional Blue/Yellow. It's what the Boston Marathon is recognized by. The fit of the jacket is great! I agree that the traditional color jacket should be available for purchase and if you want to add another color themed jacket that would be fine. I liked the teal but not crazy about the pink stripes. I think black or grey would have been a better choice. Not all females like pink!JJ
Love the fit, the styling and quality, including the awesome embroidery. The jacket is an icon for anyone lucky enough to get a spot in America's iconic race. I've run the Boston Marathon the last few years, and talking with other runners over the course of the marathon weekend, the general consensus is --- "great jacket, but what's up with the colors?" I even heard a group of runners saying that they wouldn't even be buying one this year because they're not blue and yellow (like 2013 and a few years before). Don't change a thing with how you make the jacket, but Please consider a classic blue/yellow back into the rotation! You would really please alot of "regulars" that love the race and wear the jacket with pride.
I got this jacket at a store a few months ago because I thought it would be the perfect jacket for running. In my opinion, I was right. This jacket is warmer than it looks. I have worn it with only a t-shirt underneath in 40 degrees and I was fine. It was raining really hard one day and I did not have an umbrella with me at school, and my friend asked me if it was waterproof. There was only one way to find out. It is definitely waterproof. I also have the Essentials Pants and they are sufficient rain pants. The first jacket I got was the red one. As I said I got it in the store so I saw it in person and tried it on in person. I am 5'4 (still growing) and this jacket size S fit perfectly except for a couple of inches in the sleeves. PLEASE NOTE that the red jacket is much darker than the website shows it. All in all this is a good jacket for running and you can use it as a rain jacket. I loved my first one so much that I wore it out and I ordered a black one. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE WHO WANTS A COMFORTABLE ATHLETIC JACKET
Okay, first-- The color depicted on the web for blue is not the blue you will receive. It's a darker, richer blue, not a light powder almost pastel as depicted. I'm indifferent over this, so no big deal. Now the important stuff. Quality is classical excellent as expected for this jacket, however I was expecting a little more taper and tailoring overall and found the size dimensions to be off by a large margin. I would highly recommend ordering a size down if your very athletic (broad shoulders, small waist). If you're slim overall (beanpole model types) then go two sizes down. I'm happy with my purchase, but will be ordering a size down and returning my current jacket.
I did not like that Adidas opted for pink on the woman's jacket so I -- a 5'4", 116lb woman -- bought the men's small and had it tailored. I shortened and narrowed the arms and tapered the body. The jacket is long, coming down to the top of my thighs and covering my butt. It couldn't be shortened due to pocket placement/the drawcord at the bottom, but I don't mind it long. I think buying and tailoring the jacket is a good option for any woman not interested in the pink. The attached picture is the tailored version.
I ordered an M size. It fits me well. But, the manufacture inspection is in question. There are loose threads in a few places, say in around the zipper line. With the Adidas brand name on it, and a $110 price tag, I thought it should be made more carefully.
This product was shipped and arrived quick. Design looks cool and the size is perfect. Comfortable to wear, not too thin or thick. Lightweight material but stays in form where it doesn't wrinkle up that easily. Happy with this purchase!
I appreciate that the jackets have sewn designs now (old ones were printed on and didn't last as long) but I agree with those saying offer blue and yellow every year plus a special color for the year. That way in years like this when the colors are awful there is another option. I have an orange/black from 2012 that I'm happy with so will be buying the supernova jacket this year. http://m.adidas.com/us/boston-marathon-supernova-storm-jacket/AO3841.html
Adidas: Please offer the jacket in traditional Boston blue/yellow colors along with you choice for the annual color change. Imagine how disappointed fans of any sport would be to find they couldn't get apparel in their team's colors. Now imagine how hard many runners work to get to Boston only to be disappointed in the long-sought-after prize of the Boston celebration jacket.
Thankfully, I will end up saving some money at Boston this year. All my hard work to qualify for Boston and buy the famous Marathon jacket, and this is what they offer. I get offering a different color jacket every year for the people who want to buy one, but they should offer a blue and yellow jacket every year as another option. It could be worse, it could be the my little pony version they are selling for ladies. Please find a way to release the proper and known color scheme for the Boston Marathon. Adidas, it is not too late to correct this error.
Needed a jacket as my running is getting a bit more serious now and the temp is dropping. Looked around several places but the styles were an issue or the price. Found this jacket and it ticks all the boxes. Looks good, fits nice and best of all the price. Plus with the discount code they offer by signing up to the Adidas newsletter just made it impossible to say no.
The black-white contrast is great looking and the jacket is lightweight. It'll stop wind, but not necessarily maintain warmth (as expected) so layer if need be. My only concern is the woven material is very flimsy; if a tear would happen, I fear the jacket may and will fall apart quickly.
Great jacket if your out running during the dark winter nights. The fit is quite large so if your normally a medium ie 38 chest you might be better off with the small size. Overall very happy with this jacket and would certainly recommend it.
I was excited to receive this in the mail yesterday. It took a bit longer to ship than expected (5 days including processing) but not bad for free shipping. Like most others I was worried about the color, which seemed on the bright side in pictures, but my wife and I were pleasantly surprised! Adidas has a great return policy, so my advice is to order and check it out first before dismissing. The only issue I need to report is a defect in the stitching in the left arm. There is a harness to keep the liner in place, but it was not aligned properly, making it difficult to get my arm through the sleeve. However I have a new jacket on order with a discount applied - hopefully this minor issue is resolved.
I had a previous jacket where the zip broke so bought this one. I'm not a big fan of running jackets but really like this one. The fit is good and does the job perfectly. My only concern is that if you like to run with your phone with you and you have an iPhone 6 then the phone might not fit in the pocket. Otherwise a fantastic jacket and I would highly recommend it
This item fits slim. I usually fit Adidas small with some room leftover, including some slim fit items (e.g. Daybreaker hoodies.) Despite this being listed regular fit it is on the slim side--I can't really fit anything more than a tshirt underneath. For me this is fine, as I bought it as a lightweight rain jacket for warmer weather. For reference I'm 5'10"/177cm and 170lbs/77kg with a 38" chest and a lean top. I suppose in running-specific gear Adidas feels comfortable making the items conform to sizing more suitable to leaner frames.
