Yes, I recommend this product.
"Thanks to my work schedule, most of my running takes place in the early morning hours when it's still dark (at least in the winter!#. The roads in my area are busy, even before dawn, so I have to dress to be seen. The Beacon jacket is a great addition to my early morning wardrobe! It's lightweight, breathable, easy to stash, AND it glows in the dark. It has two zip pockets in the front, which are great for stashing my gels, keys and gloves without having to worry about anything bouncing out of them while I'm running. One of the previous reviewers claimed there are no pockets on this jacket, which is incorrect. I hope New Balance continues to offer this jacket for years to come!"

"As someone who is a fan of New Balance, I was highly dissapointed in this jacket for the high price of it. It lacks several things you would expect in a running jacket: - It's not dry fit - No thumbholes - Lack of pockets While it looks great on and the glow in the dark is cool, I would not recommend this product for this price. While these are things I should have looked at before purchasing, being New Balance I didn't think I'd have to. It does not deter me at all from buying from New Balance, I just know now to look more closely when making future purchases."
