Fluffin' Awesome Jacket
low profile jacket -pairs well with thinner layers
I like the low-profile cut of this jacket. Yes, it is on the slim side (I usually wear a 6 in jackets/coats and sized up to an 8) but that was what I was looking for. I tend to overheat quickly so I dress in thin layers - this jacket is all I need for DC's generally mild winters.
I like the two-toned coloring of the fabric.
I don't like:
Every time I put this jacket on, I see a feather (or two) go dancing by. For the higher price point, you would think there would be a little less down leakage.
As others have mentioned, the zipper is finicky so you have to be careful when unzipping it. I try to be as gentle as I can to avoid a zipper casualty.
I wish the jacket had zippered inner pockets so I could stash a phone, small wallet, or keys.

I have been wearing this jacket for about a month now and I love it! It is warmer than I expected for a thin down jacket and super cozy. I did go a size up but can comfortably wear heavy sweaters under it.
One thing I would change is adding some zippered pockets so you don't have to worry about losing things!

Love this jacket!
I tried it in store and the sizes are tighter than usual but that's fine since they don't offer it in a 2. But I really want to get this jacket in a plum or the black in a size 4, but Lululemon you run out of color and sizes too quickly! If you put it back on the shelf I know others who go back for it, including myself.
Please put it back on the shelf!

Nice light weight jacket
After reading reviews, I bought a size 10, while I usually wear 6. So 2 sizes up and the fit is good. Arm lenght is good and I can still wear a long sleeve shirt under it. Just be careful, this isn't a winter jacket. Now, it's about 5 Celsius and it starts to be too light.

Cute, Lightweight and easy to pack
The first thing that attracted me to the jacket was the cute style but it also fills two roles in my wardrobe. Both my Patagonia(camping Jacket) and my Elle Tahari(Street Wear) Light Down Jackets needed replacing and this stylish Jacket can be used for both. I took it camping it's first week and it kept me toasty in Yosemite but also looks great with jeans and boots!
Like some other reviewers I think for this price the Zipper should be much more durable and mine does stick at the bottom and if the Jacket is to last several seasons I anticipate I'll have to replace it.
I also found the sizing off -- I'm a TTS 4 in tanks, tops, Defines and most items besides the Dance Studio Jacket which I am a 6 -- this Jacket I purchased an 8! The 6 fit but chest and shoulders were too snug for me to comfortably layer a tank and lulu pullover or Define underneath. The 8 solved that although it isn't as form fitting I can comfortably wear even a wool sweater underneath. I am glad there was a store return or I would have ordered the 6 online and been disappointed.
Altogether even with the poor zipper I am very pleased with the Jacket, Color, Style, Functionality and Even Fit.

Great in between jacket
Hi, I purchased this jacket when it first came out and finally had a chance to wear it. I agree with the comments regarding sizing you definitely need to go up a size particularly for the bust area. I was skeptical with the warmth of it in spite of it being 800 fill down however, these last few days have been cold and I have to say the jacket has kept me quite toasty! With that being said do not think it will be durable for below 0 but I have a Canada goose for that. Overall great in between jacket keeps you warm, great protection from rain and light enough . I have had no problems with the zipper. I did try on the vest as well and was totally off in size.
I would totally recommend this jacket. Oh and I love the no so black color it is so refreshing not to have a full black jacket.

love the coat, not the colour
I received my fluffin' awesome coat yesterday. It really is a slim fit and kept me extra warm this morning with out being too bulky. I ordered a size 6 in black - the coat fits true to my regular lululemon size 6 size. The one thing I am disappointed in is the colour. It's not really black, but more of a charcoal gray.
Other reviews said there were zipper issues. While the zipper isn't the usual hoddie-quality, I have not had any issues, then again this is my first day wearing it, lol.

Love this lightweight, warm jacket. Especially love the hood and longer length in back. Order a size up though as I bought a 12 and I am usually an 8-10 in all Lulu!!

Great Jacket Bad zipper
Have been wearing this jacket for a few weeks and really loving it.
It's a great in between weight for fall/winter. Today, however upon zipping the jacket up it spilt up from the bottom. So frustrating, this
Jacket is not an inexpensive item to purchase, why such a cheap zipper?

Good jacket, bad zipper
Love this jacket, it fits perfectly and is super cozy. Only problem was the zipper - it was sticky as other reviewers had complained, but I got past that figuring that it would get better with time. However the first morning I sat down in the car wearing my new jacket, the zipper split all the way up to my chin. I took it into the store and they were able to send it away to get the zipper replaced - I chose the heavy-duty zipper (same as the ones on the scuba hoodies) for the replacement, quite frankly that's what should have been on there in the first place. I'm looking forward to enjoying my new jacket & its new zipper when it's all fixed up!
