This jacket is better as a windbreaker than in the rain, as it lacks waterproof material across quite a bit of the jacket (per description, waterproofing is primarily hood and shoulders). The hood blocks peripheral vision which is a drawback. It's lightweight when worn but a bit bulky feeling when packed on the run.
I wore it on runs in a less humid location with temps in the teens (with base, mid, and long-sleeve layers), and on runs in a more humid location with wind up to 18 mph ("feels like" 21; base layer and tee) and it kept me warm and running comfortably. I wore it during light to moderate rain with temps in the 40s and was surprised how quickly my chest area got wet, which left me with a chill. The rain subsided and I packed it in the chest pocket, which is smaller than the side pocket presumably intended for packing (as it has an inside zipper). It was too bulky to pack in my nylon shorts so I palmed it, putting the elastic band on the pocket (for electronics) around my hand.
The description says the hood is adjustable but there's no core and thus no war to adjust except unzipping the coat to make it looser. The hood blocks peripheral vision when sipped up, which is not ideal for running routes where you need to deal with traffic at road crossings, watch for bikes, etc. I have to pull the hood back or turn my head a lot for crossings.
The description says it has two chest pockets; mine has one, which is sufficient.
If you straddle the border of two size ranges and don't plan to layer up under the jacket, go for the smaller size.
