Icebreaker Women's Gust Jacket
Not What I Expected, But Still Nice
I think this is a very nice jacket, although I'm not sure how much of a windbreaker it really is. It doesn't seem to do very well against a chill wind, but it keeps me comfortable otherwise. I only wish that the jacket was a little bit longer. The short length seems to cause my shirts to rise up a bit and has a tendency to expose my sides sometimes.

My husband purchased this jacket for me as a early Valentine's Day gift and it's AWESOME! I love the vibrant red color, it makes me more visible to cars on grey days. The side pockets are huge, I can store anything in them. The gussets running up the arm and sides of the jacket stretch, allowing you to layer if needed and still be able to move easily. So far I haven't had to layer up much, because it does such a good job keeping me warm enough without extra layers on all but the very coldest days. It's my go to jacket when running.Very happy with this purchase.

Great Fit and Function
Love my new Gust Jacket! I have been looking for a jacket to replace my current windbreaker. The one I was using before was lacking but served me well for many years. This one is exactly what I was looking for. It has some stretch to it, it is lined and vented, it is a color instead of black so I feel more visible and has reflective parts. The chest pocket does not fit my iPhone 4 but that's ok because I have another pouch I use for that along with house keys. Having the pockets with long openings/zippers is actually really handy because when I run with my dog I use a leash that buckles around my waist and I can still keep my hands warm in the pockets.
The color is more of a really bright green less yellow.

Great fit, soft, looks good
I'm very happy with this jacket. The inside is soft, it fits well, is comfortable and looks great. I've gotten lots of compliments on it and I'm ready for cooler weather so I can wear it some more.

I use it to hike, and for casual wear.
It's stylish and fits perfectly.

Finally a sexy shell!
I can't believe how pretty it is in blue. I have been looking for years for an attractive shell to run in when it is a little chilly and or drizzly but I didn't want an ugly boxy, nasty feeling one so I made do w layers of "performance" gear that always made me look/feel frumpy. In this one, even my husband was impressed. I would've given it 5 stars but as a very athletic person, with very muscular arms, I know I will only be able to wear a thin layer underneath it when it does get colder, which might be just fine if it regulates temperature as well as I hope it will. But, granted most women don't really have my bicep issues so I bet it will be beyond fabulous for others.

versatile and fashionable
I live in rany, windy, then sunny Vancouver and I have found this jacket to perform well in these variable conditions. It keeps me dry, breathes well when it warms up so I don't overheat.
I bought the blue one and have had people comment on how visible it is on our rainy days.
