And it's senorita pink! I love it... because I have tons of blues and purples, so this will really stand out! And I think that the senorita pink in this material is not as blinding as it is in others. It looks a little bit darker to me, and gorge!
I never get excited about Lululemon's running jackets, mostly because I think they look kind of shapeless and boring. And windbreakers are overkill for the weather here. But this one really caught my eye. The fit is very flattering - it hugs the waist and falls in an A line shape. I love the asymmetrical zipper that gives the jacket a unique look. It's got great details too such as the hood that's stow-able inside the collar - one of the greatest things about the comeback of the 80's! I love the soft running luon cuffs that poke out from under the outer layer. It also has a slit on the left cuff for the watch to poke through! I always always wear a watch, so I'm really excited about this. Usually when I wear a running pullover, I have to wear the watch outside of the sleeves because I can't be bothered to lift up the sleeve to see the time or my heart rate. This is a great feature for lazy ol' me! The material of the jacket is called glyde and it's pretty light weight, and I think it's water resistant. The jacket's also got venting, tons of pockets, and reflector stripes. I'm so excited about it! I wish it would rain again so I can go out in style!
I will also consider running in it. I just don't want to die from overheating. It's still fairly chilly out at 50-60 degrees these days, so maybe I'll give it a try if I go out in the early morning or late evening.
I also think this jacket will be great for those few times a year that I make it up to the mountains to go snowboarding. I always wear Lululemon under my snowboarding clothes, such as wunder unders, bra, tank, and usually a running pullover under the snowboarding jacket. I have a really awesome snowboarding jacket that I love, but maybe I can switch it out for the Inspire jacket when it's not as cold and snowy out there!
Yay for the new (old) jacket!
