I like the fit, wind break, cloth cuffs, wrist closures, etc. The only request I would make is to enlarge the inside pocket just a bit so the cell phones are easier to insert and zip up.
very useful jacket

I am using the jacket for nordic skiing in windy conditions between 0 and 30 degrees. Despite its lightness, it really has great windblocking effect, yet is breathable and doesn't restrict movement. The hood shape and storage are not quite as strong features, but a great overall product.

I wrote a prior review of this jacket with the headline of "Cut Too Small". I sent it back to Sporthill and they replaced it with the next size up, so I thought it only fair to review the new, properly fitting jacket. I wore it today on a 4 1/2 mile run in a 33 degree light rain and light wind and the jacket performed excellently. It's well ventilated along the back and unlike some other "rain" jackets which leave you clammy inside, the inner mesh of this jacket creates a barrier between any un-evaporated moisture and you. It's also a very substantial feeling jacket without being heavy. I wore it with a Sporthill Dash top and thin sleeveless velour vest and was quite comfortable during my run without being overheated. I might even try it next time with just the Dash top.
Cut too small

I own a number of other Sporthill tops (and four or five different model pants over the years) and have loved them all. But will I be returning this jacket. I always wear the Small in tops , but this is cut way too tight and close. Perhaps I could stand to lose a few pounds around my waist but it was even tighter and closer cut around my chest, I wouldn't be able move my arms comfortably while running. Never had this problem with a Sporthill top before. It does seem well made with protection from wind and cold, with a nice inner mesh to aid evaporation, but I didn't and won't get to try it out.

The Symmetry II, which I think regressed compared to the original Symmetry, accommodates rain, wind, and snow. I like how there are 3 zippered pockets, one on the inside of the jacket. I don't like the hard texture of the outside material, the oddly shaped hood and its tightening mechanism, and the non-breathable lower-sleeve interior. The jacket has a lot of features, but I think they need more focus.

I have done two runs in this, both cold weather. First a wind chill of 13* other was 16*. I was surprised at how warm it was for both runs, and how well it blocked the wind (14 mph). I have had very good luck with SportHill products. One running top I have from SportHill has lasted 14 years and is still going strong. Hoping that this jacket does as well. I bought it for the water resistance, but it has worked out well for cold weather too. Very highly recommend it.
I would purchase no other running jacket for weather under 45 degrees!!!

This jacket is very deceiving as it is extremely warm. In fact, I don't think I would wear it if I am running in temps above 45 degrees. I live in PA and we see all forms of weather here. I have no doubts at all this jacket will keep me warm all winter. I went out last week in 35 degrees with nothing but a t-shirt on under this jacket and still broke a nice sweat. The jacket is extremely wind resistant and claims to be "weather resistant" although I have yet to use it in the snow. I used it in the rain and that was a mistake. However, it does not state that it's waterproof. I just simply wear my rain jacket now if I plan to run in the rain. This jacket is worth every penny!! Fits nice. I typically wear Large and ordered a Large. It's just a hair on the larger side, which is great because it allows for a sweatshirt underneath in extreme conditions.
Great cold-moist weather top

Warm and very wind resistant.
