Run: Like the Wind Vest

Run: Like the Wind Vest
Product Details:
  • A technical vest for running, cycling or hiking!
  • Made of water-resistant and wind-resistant stretch ripstop
  • Mesh racerback and extra low armholes for breathability
  • Zippered hood, so you can zip up as you please!
  • Set-your-on-tail-free from the hood
  • Secure zipper pockets for cards, keys, & sport snacks
  • Flat seamed for chafe resistance & comfort
Hmmm. It doesn't seem all the different than the Clarity Vest. I don't care for the deep armholes and racerback style. I wish they'd come out with a luon vest or a running fleece vest. That, I would buy in a second.

These 'barely there' vests seem pretty useless to me. I'd love a fleece or luon vest too.

Yeah, I wouldn't imagine I'd ever use one on a run. They seem like they'd be more annoying than anything, especially since I live in the windy Bay Area.

I actually love the Clarity Vest - its super light, provides a bit of core warmth, and has three great pockets that are big enough to carry gels, etc. on long training runs. But I'm surprised that Lulu is putting out another very similar vest so close on the heels of the Clarity. It just doesn't look that different to me. If folks were in the market for a running vest like this, they probably already bought the clarity.

New product at my Daily Method studio: flashback jacket. in lime with white stripe at hem and cuff, black with grey stripe and hem and cuff and classic sport grey with passion at hem and cuff. Same material as the remix light, same hood and "collar area" and thicker hoodie strings as the flashback jacket and free 2 B jacket, front patch pockets and thumbholes. Sporty looking. For those of you hoping that remix lights are going to make a comeback this spring...I don't think they are...

oops above, I meant same collar and hood as the Funtimes (not flashback) jacket and free 2 be jacket.

My gym has those jackets as well. It also comes in lavendar with white trim. I was told these wouldn't be available through the regular Lululemon retail channel. Their strategic partners are the only ones that are getting these and a few other items.

...interesting that there are certain items exclusive to selling partners.

I own a run stride vest from last summer and its honestly one of my fav pieces..made from luxtreme I think and mesh pannelling down the sides. I agree with pilates mom for these barely there vests are too run specific. . when are they going to return to yoga wear with prints?

The Clarity Vest is nicer IMO, seems kinda of strange they released two.
