More from Sports Unlimited



Remember a few weeks ago ( actually it was on Halloween), we shared with you some super duper savings on athletic and running apparel? Remember those .99 cent calf sleeves? Did any of you end up ordering those?

Well anyways, the generous folks at Sports Unlimited left me pick out an item free of charge to review.  I ended up picking out this Under Armour Running Jacket.  They were available in several colors. I really wanted the grey with the pink trim but that wasn't available in my size.  I also liked the blue and orange jacket pictured above but I realized that I wouldn't have anything to match it. I have several pairs of grey and black running pants so I figured the grey/black jacket would be a more practical choice.

 From the review, I knew that it was going to be light weight so I thought it would be perfect for those windy days we were having. I've gone on several runs with it so far. The first time, it was a pretty chilly day and I only wore a long sleeve tech shirt underneath it. I really didn't think this windbreaker type jacket would keep me warm but boy was I wrong. It actually did! 

What I didn't expect were all the pockets in this jacket. Not only are there 3 zipper pockets on the outside but there are 2 netted pockets in the interior.

Here are the specs on this running jacket:

Lightweight protection from rain and wind, the Under Armour Qualifier Woven Women's Jacket features breathable HeatGear construction with moisture wicking properties.  Raglan sleeves with a semi-fitted design eliminates the bulk of extra fabric without inhibiting range of motion.  3 piece hood, chest pocket and 2 hand pockets.

Features:

  • Moisture Transport System wicks sweat away from the body
  • Breathable, lightweight woven construction delivers durability
  • Blocked woven melange panels on arms and hood
  • Wind/water resistant technology blocks the elements to regulate your core temp
  • Low-profile 3-piece hood with high neck for extra coverage
  • Raglan sleeves
  • Zip chest and hand pockets
  • Elastic cuffs and slight drop-tail hem
  • Semi-fitted cut eliminates the bulk of extra fabric
  • 100% polyester


If you are looking for some gifts for runners, definitely check out Sports Unlimited for some good buys. Right now they are offering $20 off purchases of $100 or more ( some exclusions apply).  Also a majority of the items are available for free shipping.  Happy Shopping!

    1. I had a pretty warm jacket last year but it was not suited for running in the snow or rain, so this will be perfect this year if I should find myself put on a run in inclimate weather!

  12. I really like that jacket. I don't typically run in jackets because I get too hot, so a lightweight windbreaker is really all that I need. (Too bad I just bought one...though I still have a while to return it if I change my mind). Will definitely check out their website to see what else they have too!
