Fitness Fashion Friday is back! Today, I’m telling you about my new favorite running jacket. Now, I have not fallen out of love with my Athleta Reflective Running Start Jacket. But now that the temperatures are warming up and the sun is out for longer, I don’t necessarily need to always wear my crazy awesome glow-in-the-dark jacket!
When I received the Brooks catalog the other day and I was instantly throwing a fit for the PureProject Running Jacket II.
I’m a Brooks girl when it comes to my running shoe of choice (Brooks Ravenna all the way) but they also do a really great job with apparel as well. I love their Infiniti tights and my friend Katie at Prairie Ponderings loves her Brooks Utopia tights.
This PureProject Jacket is just as great! It’s not just cute- it’s functional too. It’s water and wind-proof in the main body and has 360-degree tonal reflectivity.
“Brooks women’s Pure Project Running Jacket II has all the features you expect from a high-performance jacket with unexpected style that looks great on the run, at work or out on the town…The front and back petal hem adds a kick of sophisticated style while understated function can be found in the two front pockets, the draft flap on the zipper and 360-degree tonal reflectivity.”
Unfortunately, the gray version that first caught my eye was sold out really quickly in a size medium, so I went with the patterned version instead. I love it just as much!
The jacket is definitely where fitness meets fashion. Love it.
Free 2-day shipping and free returns. If you don’t like it or its the wrong size, no worries! For reference, I purchased a medium,so I can layer as necessary underneath. I’m quite happy with the fit; roomy but not baggy.
One downside? The pockets don’t have zippers. If you have been reading for awhile, you might remember that I don’t always have the best luck with my house key on runs, so I kind of need a zippered pocket…BUT, there is velcro on a small inner pocket, so that should work just as well!
I’m a pretty big fan of the whole Pure Project line at Brooks.
