NEW! Run: Willpower Pullover

There is a new windbreaker type running pullover, the Willpower Pullover. I like the design but not the Ikat version. However, if you are running and want to make sure people see you, that might be the one to get.




I really like the look of this pullover. I wonder how insanely high it's priced. As soon as I find out I'll post. Readers report the price is at a relatively reasonable $118. OTOH, the Ikat version is crazy:

This looks a lot like last year's Leader of the Track Jacket. Which I bought and almost very wear for some reason. Guess that means this will be a pass for me.

Does this look tight in the shoulders again to anyone else? I love the grey color, just not the Ikat print. Yikes!

Saw this in the San Francisco store during lunch. They carried it in black only. I want to say the price was $108 or $118?

Yes, only the black is available in stores right now retailing for $118.

$118 seems reasonable. I am shocked.

I have to get my hands on that pullover...just not in the ikat print.

Is the hood too big for a run jacket??

I think I'm in the minority, but I actually like the ikat print in the pullover LOL. Unfortunately, I don't like the weird flaps on the back, so still a no go for me.

what is it with this fascination with seams down the middle of the back? okay, if a seam MUST be there, at least make it blend in. They do pretty good with that in the white/grey version, but iKat? no, not so much. I think this would get better use as a full zip up jacket vice pullover. I agree about the hood, too--too big for running. It would be a wind scoop/sail.

The seam down the back is a strip of reflective tape so it actually has a function in this jacket.

The hood is big but it has cinches to tighten it up. Too bad you couldn't roll it up and secure it with a cord or something.

I kinda like this jacket in the grayish color... not a fan of the ikat though, too busy for me. I really don't need a jacket at all since I have the Inspire Jacket...but I can still look. I like the detail shot of the hood, and I appreciate nice deep hoods to accommodate ponytails. I'm guessing the flaps in the back mean there's a vent underneath to regulate your temp?? I'd like to see a pic with the hood up and zipped up all the way to see how tight it is around the face. Never thought I'd say this, but I'm actually surprised it doesn't cost more!
