This jacket was an amazing fit and purchase and really worth the price and despite it not looking all that warm it actually is. Great jacket and I'd definitely would buy another one if Adidas makes new colours
This windbreaker looks great and is very well designed. No issues, a perfect piece of athletic apparel. A must have contemporary warm up jacket. A little on the tighter side so if you prefer slightly oversized jackets that accommodate a thick sweatshirt underneath, then you might consider stepping up to the next larger size. I just love it the way it is!
Great, low-profile piece for layering or a stylish accent to a casual outfit. Fits trimmer than most Adidas outerwear. I can wear a thin hoodie under it but not much more (I'm 5'10"/177cm and 170lbs./77kg, trim upper body, about 38"chest and 30" waist. I bought a small to wear under heavier jackets rather than over a fleece etc. so I'm happy with it.) It's fairly breathable yet retains a moderate amount of warmth to the core of the body. It's not very waterproof, however, which is fine for me but something worth mentioning.
Firstly, I love the look of the jacket in blue. My father was an athlete and one of my earliest memories involve him getting up early every day and going for a run--in the winter he'd wear a jacket almost exactly like this one for those morning runs. I now see the reason: it's extremely practical for winter training. The jacket is fairly lightweight, not at all bulky for it's level of warmth, has a stand-up collar and hood, both insulated, which provide good coverage and warmth for the face and head. It's fairly breathable in the sense that it doesn't overheat within while I'm running but at the same time is doesn't let really any wind pass through. (I've so far worn it running in moderately windy conditions to about -7 degrees Celsius with only a long-sleeved t-shirt underneath and I was perfectly comfortable. I'm sure it would be fine to -12 like that. With proper layering, such as a thermal and the Adidas light down vest--which fits beneath fairly well--I can see wearing this all winter while training, and where I live in Canada it can get down to -40 degrees below zero in winter. Mind you, this is based on the notion that one is exercising in this jacket.) A few points about this jacket: It's not that waterproof. It'll protect against snow and drizzle but not full-on rain. The waist and cuffs are a heavy elastic that is permanently 'folded' up into the sleeves and the base of the jacket. It keeps the jacket from looking too puffed up and keeps the wind from getting in; I like it, but it might not be to all tastes. The jacket pockets are zip-up with little stays to keep the zippers from jangling; the pockets aren't lined with fleece--they are insulated by the body of the jacket and the same slick polyester material, which I prefer as dry hands with knicks often get snagged on fleece. I'm 5'10"/177cm and 170lbs/77kgs, about a 38" chest and 30" waist. Small fits me perfectly with room from layers beneath.
Questions I had about this product before ordering and what I've since found out from wearing it: Q: Is it waterproof? A: Yes, very much so. I wore it while it rained and water beaded right off. Even threw a handful of water to see if any more would soak in, again it beaded off. Q: Does it have a drawstring at the bottom? A: No, and that is really its biggest flaw. It's be better if it could be sinched up at the bottom to protect from wind coming up under, etc. Q: How does it fit? A: Fits like a jacket. Small usually fits snug or just right on me (I'm 5’10”/177cm and 170lbs/77kg with a lean upper body); this is lose but still trim, definitely meant to accommodate layers underneath. Q: How warm? A: Pretty lightweight but still warm if you wear a sweater, thermal or layers underneath. I've worn it while jogging at -1 celcius with just a traditional college sweater underneath and after I built up some body heat it was plenty warm. With suitable layers I can see it being warm while running to -10 celcius, maybe even colder. If you aren't being active you might not want to wear it much below 0 celcius. Additionally, the pockets are fleece-lined but have no zippers. The main zipper on mine is sort of reddish orange, but the whole things is surprisingly tasteful. I've always been sceptical about sportswear brands making outdoor gear but I'm pleasantly surprised by this and am already looking into some of Adidas' other offerings.
This jacket as expected is bulky, heavy and really warm, Will be fantastic for winter, the hood is detachable too, looks great on good style and colour.. bit pricey but you get what you pay for these days...
This is better than I could of imagined I was so please when it arrived it looks very nice and stylish I'm really glad I bought this vest I wish it had a hood though but you have plenty of room underneath to wear a rain jacket or hooded jumper so not much of a problem
Was in the market for a tweed jacket. my specific requirements were it had to be Adidas of course. and it had to be sporty & smart enough to wear at work. and as a result Adidas has once again created a blend of the two and this is the end result. totally love my jacket. got in Medium & its perfect like all my other superstar jackets. Forever Adi Das :)
The Itasca windbreaker is a great fall weather option for early morning workouts. I use mine when I'm biking to the rowing club, and although it doesn't provide much insulation, the fit great and it's easy to wear a couple warm base layers underneath. This product does not stand up very well to moisture, and if it does get wet; it's wind stopping qualities become negligible. If you are looking for something water resistant- look elsewhere.
Bought this jacket for my son recently...when it arrived I could not believe the jacket was inside the box it came in. The box was so small and light, I thought it was empty. To my surprise the jacket was inside, very light and comfortable, well padded. Suits the purpose it was purchased for. The only downside was , my son apparently grew over the summer, so I am exchanging it for a larger size. GREAT jacket.
Best of anything I have bought from the store, Im 5ft 7" with 38" chest and a similar belly. It fits perfectly in all areas and looks cool, I know its 30 quid more then the Track Top version but it is worth it.
