i went to my local store to try this jacket on and maybe purchase it for spring. i love everything about this jacket except for one huge flaw - the unsightly zippered vents on the chest.
here are the issues:
(1) they are far too large and distracting in terms of design.
(2) they look fine when the jacket is on the hanger, but they curl in a very strange and unflattering way once the jacket on the body.
this is really unfortunate considering the fact that these vents could have been placed just a few centimetres lower and the zippers could have been made slightly smaller - an easy fix to this poor design.
i would have gladly bought the jacket were it not for these zippers, even at the steep price.

Technical meets Fashionable
I absolutely love this jacket. Its exactly what Lulu is all about, functional and fashionable clothing with technical features. This jacket had a ton of features that made it unique and better then other products. I love how you can use the reflective when you need to, and hide when not in use. I love the double zipper and large hood. I recommend sizing up for more of a looser or relaxed fit. I found it ran a bit small for my liking.
Please lower the price to $148 or somewhere near there so I can purchase it. $198 is just a bit pricy for a spring/fall jacket. Would rate it 5 stars if the price was lower.
