micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
light, airy and keeps you cool! the length is short so it may be very cropped on tall women. I am 5'4" and it hits me just above my hips. has a slight dolman sleeve style, but not as baggy/eggagersted as the other stella jackets seem to have.
This is a great keepsake if you've run the marathon and identifies you as "part of the club" for future marathons. As far as its functionality as an actual running jacket; I would say you are better served going with something else. I normally go with a medium for Adidas products but this was a little small. Order a size up.
I usually wear a medium, but this fit was too tight in the shoulders and upper arms, and ok everywhere else. I will try a large. Color looks better in person than online. I'm okay with turquoise and pink...don't know what everyone else's problem with the pink is. It's only two pink stripes...geez!
Love this jacket. It is well-made and the quality is outstanding -- equally great for running on a long run or running errands. The fit is very good. Oftentimes things are just made a touch too big for me (I am 5'0" and about 110 pounds, got an XS), but this fits great. The details (stitching details, stretchy and soft material at the end of the sleeves, etc.) are very nice and really make the jacket. As far as people not liking the colors...sorry, you didn't have to buy the jacket if you didn't like it. I personally think the colors are great and there is just enough pink to give it a feminine touch.
For years I complained that running companies let the guys have all of the cool colors and made all of the girls pastel only colors so I bought the mens stuff...even the shoes. I'm over that with this jacket. Now I think that men and women look good in most colors.. This one in particular is stunning. Sorry guys, if you can't find a women's that fits.
I wasn't too excited to see a pink and green jacket, but said I'd buy it regardless because it is part of the Boston Marathon experience. I have many other jackets and I like the idea of the traditional blue and yellow. But walking around this weekend it was so cool to see all of the other jackets, and you could tell the year by the colors. In the end, I like the jacket because it's my badge of honor for finishing. Congrats to all of the other runners! Wear the pink and green with your head held high!
I have every jacket for the last 4 years, and while last year's was my favorite because I love purple, this one is a close second! I love the colors, and especially the pink!! This year I did go with the size small while last year I got XS. Not sure if this year's is running smaller?? Overall great jacket, but agree with other reviews it could use thumb holes!
I had talked myself into being ok with the pink accent colors. But then I got the jacket. I'm not ok with it. I'm not ok with the fact that the entire jacket is a different "lighter" color scheme. The equipment green that Adidas is standing behind is actually bright, bright neon turquoise that is specific to the women's jacket. That's not too apparent in the description nor in any press. It reminds me of my childhood when all things girl were pink and turquoise. I'm not a child anymore. I'm a grown person who dedicated the past 4 months of my life to this thing that we all love so much to do. That time in preparation for the race was neither lighter nor brighter than my male counterparts. It just was. Well, as a grown person I can also decide to return a jacket that screams "FEMALE runner" and not just runner. Shipping it back to Adidas.
I'll likely sell to someone at the gym as it fits big and doesn't suit me at all. I feel quite uncomfortable in it. But, these things happen when you buy online. Good quality and nice jacket, just not good one me.
I bought this when it came out and it is sitting there waiting until after the marathon, but I still hate the color as much now as when I first saw it. I saw a woman wearing this already (!) (?) in the NYC half marathon and all I could think was "that is such a dumb looking jacket". Way too fluffy and my burly running partner in no way should be forced into pastels in the men's version! I hate this jacket.
love the color!!!! I felt the medium fits a little too perfect but the large is too long. I will probably keep the large. If the women's was a little looser in the back/chest area , it would be perfect. I like things loose. I also like that the mens & womens stripe is a different color.
Since I am running Boston this year for the first time, I wanted to swag up with all the gear. I bought shorts, a sports bra, the training shirt, and a race shirt. The only thing left was the jacket. I waited forever before buying the jacket and only did so with a coupon code. It arrived and I was pleased that the pink accent was not antacid pink but was hot pink. That being said, I still abhor pink and don't understand why manufacturers always thing women want pink on everything. The jacket fit well (true to size) and was great quality. I loved the mandarin collar and the embroidery. What I could not get over was THE COLOR. The color is HORRENDOUS. I understand Adidas wanted to go retro and harken back to the good ol' days but seriously?? I had the jacket hanging in my bedroom for 2 weeks trying to will myself to allow the colors to grow on me. It just was not happening. It had to go back. It was just too ugly. I will just have to get another jacket from another manufacturer and run hard so I can BQ again to get a better jacket. Anything would be better than this because the colors can't possibly get any worse (ok, it could get a little worse -- they could make the entire jacket pink, but they would never do that to the men!).
I really like this jacket. The white colour and reflective band are useful for running at night or in low light. The material is soft and comfy. The fit is good. The one thing that isn't clear from the photos on the website is that the jacket is quite short at the front. This has not been a problem for me, but something to bear in mind if you are planing on purchasing it.
Adidas, why? Yes, I'm a girl but pastel and pink? I want the same colors the boys get. Every time. I bought my jacket 2013, 2014, and 2015... But 2016 is where I have to draw the line. Goodness, bring back the primary colors!
I ordered a size small woman's anthem jacket (I always wear a small) Jacket is snug and really not a good fit overall. A little tight in the shoulders and upper arms. And not flattering by any means. I will re-order this in a medium. Only because it a Boston Marathon jacket. Otherwise I sure wouldn't waste any money on this. On a scale of 1-10 this jacket rates a solid 2. The color gets rated a solid 1 and the zipper worked so that also gets a 1. FYI I have the jackets from 2003, 2004 and 2006 and they fit perfect. LOVED them all. What were you thinking?
I have to admit I was not a huge fan of the pink stripes for the women's jacket. That is the only reason I gave the jacket "4 stars." I personally think the men's and women's jackets should be the same. I would prefer the black stripes but opted to get the females jacket for a better fit. Although, once I received the jacket in person, the pink with the teal does not look that bad. It will grow on me. Otherwise, the quality of the jacket is great and it is a BAA jacket so I will wear it proudly!! (After crossing that finish line of course!)
I love this jacket and I'm super pumped about qualifying. I was disappointed at first that it was not going to be blue and yellow, but the colours have grown on me and the jacket looks a vibrant green-blue, similar to kayak blue at Old Navy, but more green. The pink stripes are a bright almost neon medium shade. The jacket is definitely "loud and proud." I ordered size Small, which fits through the shoulders and the arm length is correct, but I have very long arms. I would describe this jacket as a loose fit. Unlike the model in the picture who appears to have a fitted waist, this jacket is big and hangs straight down from the sides. Only when I lift up my arms does it look a little fitted. It would probably look fitted on someone over 5'6. From the side, it balloons out, more extremely than on the model. If you have big shoulders like I do, you will have to stay with size Small and accept the baggy loose look, with the elasticized hip hem riding up spontaneously (and I have 35 inch hips, so why does it?). I would have liked to have more panels to make this a more fitted jacket to show my waist, especially given the steep price tag. I wore this jacket running today in 2C over a long sleeve wool shirt, and found the jacket was warm enough, but the collar and back wetted out from my sweat. Finally the collar is too big for my neck by 2 inches, letting in some air. Overall, a good looking jacket, but please re-design the women's version to make the back more than one panel to fit our bodies instead of a giant pocket of air all around.
It's bad enough the main color is this light aqua blue-green, adidas had to add pink to be 100% certain women are aware of the fact they are women and must advertize it by wearing something pink everywhere they go. Couldn't they just stick with the same color scheme as for the men, like in the previous years? I will make sure to buy the men's version, thank you very much.
The quality of the jacket is good. Fabric is smooth and soft. I am 5'4 107, long arms, ordered small. Fits good, falls on upper hip, sits snag on it but not tight. The color is not what shows the picture. It's hot pink. I like the jacket but have to return it or give away as a gift.
I'm 5'1 and bought the small hoping it would not be too big and it fits great. Although an xs would look good as well if you want it tighter. The only problem is the zipper gets stuck at the collar when trying to unzip if I don't hold my finger between the inner cloth lining. Other than that I definitely recommend for running and looks beautiful.
The package came in within the 4-7 days as they said it would. Jacket fits great, not too big or tight on the sleeves, great even if you have a long or small torso, the color goes great with everything, feels like sturdy material, so it wont rip after alot of washes. Def would recommend for the up coming fall season, early winter season.
I got it within a week of my order. The Jacket was absolutely beautiful. It fitted perfectly. The only issue I had is that it wasn't as soft as i expected it to be . But overall I am glad that I purchased it
I loved the colour from the moment I saw it. I think it would benefit the quality if there was a bit of spandex added to the jacket, so it's not so boxy, but overall.....it is a great training jacket.
Although the quality and fit of this jacket is wonderful, the color is not at all in person what it appears online. I ordered the pink version of this jacket expecting the website's lovely light pink/salmon color, but man was I surprised when the jacket arrived. It's literally neon bubblegum pink. the brightest pink ever. if you're ever on an airplane and see a pink spot below, that's me wearing this jacket. Anyway, I'd recommend the jacket but have to return based off this horrid pepto bismol color.
I purchased this jacket for my teenage daughter, to match the pants I got for her over Christmas. She absolutely loves it. Has worn it many times already and she tells me she gets many compliments. The feel is great and the fit it's perfect. She's about 5'3" and 130 lbs, so I purchased the medium size, which fits her perfectly.
