I'm a casual runner (3-4x a week, approx. 3mi a trip) and my usual attire includes leggings, running socks/sneakers, an active tank and a hoodie on top. Recently it's gotten to the point where a hoodie is just aggravating to run in, the wind just blows right through the fabric and the cotton gets hot and sweaty. I end up tearing off my hoodie halfway through, so I'm running in 35 degree weather in a tank top. No bueno. I bought this jacket specifically for running in temps around 35-45 degrees without overheating, and honestly, it did its job.
For the price, the fabric and quality of the stitching is decent. I had a few loose threads here and there, but the majority of the jacket is sewn quite sturdily and the fabric is thick and doesn't feel cheap. The fit seems pretty true to size and allowed me to layer my usual tank underneath without it being obnoxiously tight, but it is a FITTED jacket, so if you like a looser fit, size up. The length came down to my lower hip, but I'm short-ish with a short torso (see measurements below) so I expected this. I hate extra fabric and enjoyed the length so I like the fit as it is, I did not size up.
The jacket comes with thumb holes, which is nice, but I found the wrist holes to be somewhat big. Not a dealbreaker, but definitely not flush to your wrist and may let in some cold if you don't utilize the thumb hole. I wear light Columbia gloves when it's under 40 so the largeness of the wrist hole was actually helpful, it meant I could tuck my gloves into my jacket sleeve without struggling. The zipper is plastic but not flimsy, it should hold up well. All in all, for $40, a decent jacket. I'd buy in more colors if they had more to offer (I chose black, but I'm not really a fan of the other offerings, maybe they're offer more in the future?).
For reference, I ordered a size SMALL.

I agree it does look almost identical to the Lululemon Define jacket. The fit is spot on. I love how the back is just a couple inches longer than the front. It is a bit stiff coming out of package so hopefully after a wash or two the material will loosen a bit. It’s not your typical thin running jacket. It’s does have a little weight to it which I prefer. I’m 5’10 150 lbs and bought a large which fits perfect. The arm length is perfect as well. I highly recommend.
Amazing!! I wear it to run and I love it. It’s a little heavy for running so it slows me down but not by enough to complain. It’s comfortable and flattering. Knowing I was going to wear it over my shirt I got a size up. Normal size is medium I ordered a large and it’s perfect (for reference I am 5’5 165 lbs size 8/10 and workout a lot). I love it so much I have it in 2 colors.
This is much better than other more expensive running jackets I have purchased. The fabric is heavy enough to stay put and filling my pockets doesn't cause a jingle. I bought a small and the sizing is on point. So far it has washed well.
