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.

Bought for my wife on the advice of Brian in the Chertsey store. She loves it. I need to track down a similar garment for me!

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.

This is so warm yet light weight and comfortable. I goes great with my vest to keep me super warm on cold windy days!

So-So Shell (itchy on the inside)
I was really excited to get this jacket. I used it for my morning bike commute. It's pretty warm for spring and fall biking and even held up pretty well in the rain (I got wet but it kept me pretty warm in 2 degree weather). But my biggest complaint about the jack is that it's itchy on the inside. I have a lot of merino and this isn't usually a problem like it is with other wool. For such an expensive jacket I would expect it to be more comfortable.
I'm also a little bit disappointed in the colour. I ordered the blue version which doesn't seem to be available any more and the picture shows it as a less saturated greeny blue, but the actual colour is very bright and definitely blue (no green undertones).
