 2014 Official Boston Marathon Celebration Jacket
2014 Official Boston Marathon Celebration Jacket
You made it over Heartbreak Hill and right through the finish line in Copley Square, and that means you've earned this men's running jacket. It has a big Boston Marathon logo on the back and the chest. Features side zip pockets and a full zip.

This was an opportunity for Adidas to make a splash and they blew it. I never in my life thought I'd buy such a hideous looking jacket but the event means so much more to me so I bit the bullet.
The orange shown in the online picture does not do justice to the horrible color. I hunt and my hunters' orange gear is almost bleak in comparison. It is so vivid you'll hurt your eyes straining to see past it to look at the detail in the embroidery. The collar logo should not have been changed from the past trends either.
Bottom line, Adidas could have delivered a product with class and made a huge statement in the wake of the terrorist attack at the 2013 race. Instead they chose an event with significant emotional meaning and used it as an excuse to dump a fabric color that likely would never move...ever
The only thing I can give props on is fit.
