I have had this jacket for about a month and have had the opportunity to test it out in a wide range of conditions. I am happy to report that the Brooks Women’s Nightlife Jacket III is extremely versatile.
So far, I have been comfortable with wearing a long-sleeve shirt underneath the jacket with temperatures in the 40s-50s . I think one time I even wore it with just a short sleeve shirt when the temps were in the low 60s. The jacket is also pretty stylish, especially in the way it fits - not too bulky at all, and doesn't hinder my performance whatsoever.
The one thing that caught me a little off guard when I opened the package is how bright the jacket is. However, being too bright is way better than not being bright enough, especially when running in the early morning or late evening hours. During winter in the Midwest, I feel like it dark all day long, so this jacket is perfect for the reflectivity I need.
