Optimal Training Hoody
Had my eye on this jacket for weeks, so when I saw it was in the sale and it was only available in my size L I took it to be a message from the universe and added it to my basket. Love this although it is a bit warm for it right now I know I will get loads of wear out of it as it gets a bit cooler. lovely details, lovely colours, it is light and comfy to wear. Sometimes I am a medium and sometimes depending on what it is I am a large, after reading other reviews I knew that the L would be right for me

A keeper - pricey but nice
This is an unusual top. Its very flattering. True to size. But I have to say a tad pricey. The thermal body just isn't what I was expecting at all. I'm keeping it. I do like it. I was just disappointed at the cost. I expected more. I've never had that before. In fact I've never had such doubt and confusion with any SB item!

An excellent jacket
I love this so much. It's much to good just to wear for workouts, I wear it with casual clothes a lot too.
It's pricey, but as with everything, you get what you pay for, and this is a long term investment.

How did I manage without this in my life?!
So here it is. The perfect jacket for going to parkrun, going to and from the gym and even a Bootcamp on a chilly morning.
It's just that bit different too with the coloured zip pulls and the pop of pink on the sleeves.
Overall it's the best hoody I have ever owned and it it's my new best friend...

Unusual but Fab
Love this jacket as it's good for jeans, joggers, riding or in the gym! Warm and looks great lots of good comments from friends etc.

I am very pleased with this jacket but I can completely understand and agree with some of the other reviews.
It fits nicely around the hips and waist, the area around the chest/top is looser and the arms are tighter than I would usually go for but I can see how it is designed as a running top, there is plenty of movement for the arms in the top. The jacket looks really good and fits in most places very well, its def. a keeper.

Nice Comfortable Jacket
This jacket is comfortable and relatively warm when walking to and from bootcamp at night. The pockets are decently sized and I like the separate phone compartment. The hood is a decent hood and does actually cover your entire head (like most Sweaty Betty hoodies). Two things that do bother me slightly though, is that the pink fitted cuffs are far too long and I have to push them up to be able to get my thumbs into the thumbholes, this is a recurrent problem I find with Sweaty Betty arm lengths. Secondly, I think the jacket would profit from a slightly higher neckline, just to help keep the chill out!

Unusual running jacket
I like the feel of the snuggly fabric on the body of the jacket. I also like the flash of pink to alleviate the grey. One slight negative, the arms are a bit long, even for my longer than average arms. But overall its a great jacket and has been used alot over the last few months of cold winter mornings

Great look and feel
Love this jacket. I put it to the test in a run in the rain (unintentionally) and it performed really well. I was almost completely dry. The hood stayed in place pretty well but when the wind picked up I wished I had a way to cinch it up a bit more.
Like others said the arms are long and the whole jacket goes pretty low on my hips. But it's still really comfortable and looks great for such a functional jacket.
