Merrell Destination Jacket Review

Gear Review: Merrell Destination Running Jacket

For those of you who won't let a little chilly weather prevent you from continuing your outdoor runs have I got a great jacket for you. Staying warm is all about layering, and this Destination Jacket made by Merrell ($85) has you covered. I tested it while visiting some friends on the East Coast, and it was perfect for my trail run even at 20° F. I wore the Ibex wicking sports bra and tank, a long sleeve midweight baselayer and this jacket on the outside, and I stayed toasty warm. Actually, by the end, I was even sweating.

It's made of soft, stretchy fleece and has a feminine fit so it felt really comfy, yet supportive. The special features I love most are the thumb holes to keep wind from blowing up your sleeves, the zippered pockets to hold tissues or your phone, and the hood to keep your head and ears protected. I also love that the front zipper goes all the way up to your chin, to keep wind off your neck. This jacket isn't wind or waterproof, so if it's breezy or snowy, I'd just wear a lightweight rain jacket or windbreaker over it. The Destination can also be used for a light jacket to wear to and from the gym. If you're not a fan of blue, check out the other colors below.

I may have to get this for my wife. She's been looking for a running jacket that had zippered pockets to carry her phone.

This jacket will definitely cover your waist. It sits about halfway down my tush.

The jacket I use for running now is really short, so it's always riding up and my waist gets cold. How long is this one?

There are two open pockets on either side of the jacket.

Ooh, this looks like something I've been looking for. Love the zippered pockets and thumbholes. Are there any pockets on the inside?
