Rated 3 out of 5Â by RunnerEsq Looks nice, but still a basic windbreaker...
It looks nice and has the BAA/Boston Marathon logo embroidered on it, but still a basic windbreaker that lacks in features you might find on a jacket that's half or 2/3 the price. I read the reviews and had low expectations for value, so this is OK. The shell is 100% polyester with no spandex for stretch and the inside is mesh. Nothing on the hand tags about water repellancy, so I'm guessing there is none. No inner pockets -- a feature I like-- although the outer hand pockets do have zippers. I'm only running Boston once, so it's fine and I recommend it if you are buying it for the logo and know it's overpriced for what it is.
As for size, I'm petite (5'3" and 114lbs) and don't have long arms and the arms on the S were fine, as was the fit overall.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by whimpy Fits perfect
I was hesitant to order the womens jacket as I have seen online the mens is a better fit. I am here to say, I disagree.....I ordered a medium and am 5' 8", 118 lbs, and it is a perfect fit! Now on to Boston!!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by nana the soccer player Satisfied
I just bought this jacket and am satisfied with the purchase, but slightly disappointed in a few things. The jacket is of great quality and looks very nice. However, it would be significantly better with a drawstring around the bottom. It feels as though there should be one, and the drawstring would make it much more comfortable, not only to run in, but to wear in general. Also, the sleeves seem to be just a bit too short. I ordered a small, which is my normal size, and the medium would certainly be too big, as is. If there was a drawstring around the bottom, though, I would exchange my small for the medium in order to have the sleeves a touch longer. This is my first year running Boston, so I will keep the jacket either way. For the price, I expected to love it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mellifluous Great Jacket
I am glad that I read the other reviews prior to purchasing this jacket.
I am 5' 71/2", short torso, long limbs 122 lbs and normally wear a small but ordered up a size to the medium. The sleeve length is perfect and the shoulders just fit. The small would definitely not have worked. The bottom of the jacket is boxy but the yellow side panels visually bring it in. The jacket is bright and bold and will get you noticed.
Overall I am happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Ladyvol So excited!!!
My jacket has arrived in time for the Boston Marathon!!! I initially ordereda small..which I normally wear..and was disappointed that it was too small...even the upper arms wear too tight. I quickly ordered a medium and returned the small. My charge card was credited within a week of the return. The medium fits perfectly and the quality is great. I had to call customer service with a problem that I was having ordering the medium and they were awesome...answered the phone right away and very helpful, courteous and patient. Thumbs up to Adidas. I am now Boston bound in 3 days!!!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Court F Sleeves too short
I'm 5'5" and got a medium because I've heard Adidas runs small. The jacket itself is too wide, but the sleeves are too short. I basically need a small for the body of the jacket, but probably a large or extra large for the sleeve length. And no, I don't have long arms, I'm very average. This is just a very poor design. I'm so disappointed because getting the Boston jacket was something I was so proud of; it's sad that I probably won't wear much.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by KC runner Great jacket!
I am a fairly small chica, 5'3 and have a petite frame. The small fits me perfectly! I was surprised at how heavy the jacket actually is, I thought it would be more of just a wind breaker but it actually has a little substance to it. LOVE the colors and I'm super excited to wear it after the race! This is a MUST have for all Boston Marathon runners!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Juels10 Had to get one
It was my first Boston, and after reading the reviews, I had decided not to pre order this $100 jacket because I didn't think I'd ever wear it...honestly. But...when I got to Boston, everybody was either wearing theirs or wearing one from previous years. Again I considered purchasing one, but didn't think it would be worth it. After the bombing, I had to order one as evidence that I had been there. Besides, I will want to wear it next time I go, to honor and remember the victims of that tragic day.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Karebear Jacket size
I purchased a size medium after reading all the reviews and it fits perfectly! I would normally be a small but so many reviews said that their clothing runs small so I opted for the next size up. It would be great if there was a draw string around the waist of the jacket but other than that its a good light jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ridgerunner Awesome jacket!
I will be running Boston for my first time this year and had to get the Official Adidas jacket! I usually wear size medium, however I found the arm length was too short so I had to exchange it for a large. I recommend ordering one size up to get the correct arm length. Besides the arm length, the jacket fits perfectly and is great quality. I love the colors (especially the bright blue) and the design!
