Upload Thursday Eve

I've been a bit remiss posting photos but I am hoping to see the new Run: Essential Jacket tomorrow. I think it's supposed to show up in stores on Friday so this one is a long shot.

The construction sounds very similar to the Featherweight Hybrid jacket - DWR Glyde, perforated body mapping, luxtreme panels and lots of reflectivity. It's coming in Rocksteady and Black, sizes 2-12. I also like the Rocksteady color better than the Surge Featherweight Hybrid I ordered. I hope the price is similar but since this looks like more Glyde and less luxtreme I think it might be more.

I kind of like this Pullover. It's the Full Tilt Pullover. It comes in Heathered Muted Mauve/Muted Mauve, Heathered Lavender Grey/Lavender Grey, Heathered Black/Black. I think I would like one in Heathered Lavender Gray. The stores say that these will show up on Friday so most likely it won't be in tomorrow's upload.

There is also a new Run For Your Life coming in Heathered Lavender Gray. I like the more solid looking versions of this tank, like the Royalty, Coal, and this one. I might get it.

If the Brisk Earwarmers show up tomorrow I am definitely ordering at least one. I love the Aruba one I bought last year.

If the Dewberry Featherweight Hybrid shows up tomorrow I might order it. I got my Surge one today but I am really not a Surge person. I like the jacket concept a lot but not in Surge.

The new Weather Or Not Jacket is super cute. I will get zero use out of it, but I still thinks it's kind of cute, especially the tweed one.

There is a new print CRB out (Coal Ground Nesting Black Bird) and some new colors - heathered muted mauve, lavender gray, and rocksteady but I don't love any of them.

I don't think I've written about this yet but the Solace jacket is back. I wasn't that excited about it the first time around but I think it might show up tomorrow.

I think tomorrow will be an interesting day for the upload.

anyone got details on that jacket? Is it weather repellent, or thick/lined? is it a winter coat? i'm dying to know...

If you mean the Weather or Not jacket -- I bought it this week, and am now deciding if I keep it or the Right as Rain that I bought before. They are the same shape, fit, cut -- but the Weather or Not has a fleece lining, like the Audrey, and it does not appear to be waterproof or water repellant. The Right as Rain seems to be a true rain jacket; it does not have any fleece lining. The Weather or Not is now up on the website (Canada) and it appears they have used part of the description from the Right as Rain and part of the description from the Audrey. Despite their description of it keeping you "right as rain", I don't think it's a rain jacket at all, and the educator said the same.

I would describe the Weather or Not as a Fall/Spring jacket, that might get you through a sprinkle, but it is not a true rain jacket. It has a flannel/fleece lining, but it's not thick. If you add layers, you might get away with it in a mild winter. It depends where you live.

There is an Apres Piste jacket coming, which appears to be a thicker Winter jacket, but shaped similar to the Weather or Not.
