Studio Surf Jacket
I received this as a gift from my man (amazing man I should say) who selected this jacket by viewing it online. Before he had selected it we went to the Scottsdale Quarters Lulu store to try on jackets to get an idea of what size to order. They did not have this exact jacket in the store and it was difficult to get an idea of what size because I tried on a number of jackets and fit in sizes ranging from 6 to 10. Based on the description I opted to go for a 10, I would guess I am typically an 8 but the reviews were right on with statingthe jacket is fitted and snug. I am 5'8, 35x27x36, the jackets length is perfect and it fits snug in all the right areas. The fabric is amazing and perfect for the weather in san Diego all year round. The design and fit of the jacket is very flattering. My guy did a great job selecting this jacket, I am very pleased, definitely a keeper ( oh and the jacket too! ;) ).

Flattering but pricey!
At first I felt guilty about purchasing this jacket because of the sky high price tag, but I was so drawn to the inkwell/black that I knew that if it sold out, I'd regret not purchasing one. For shorter girls, the length of this jacket isn't bad (I'm 5 feet tall, bought a size 4) and I have no problems with my back being exposed while sitting down. On the model, the jacket looks uncomfortably short and seems like it wouldn't provide full coverage when sitting. Overall, I really enjoy the snug, flattering fit and hidden pockets. Took off one star for the price though, if it were slightly cheaper I may have considered buying a second one :(

poor fabric quality
the look is great but the great dissatisfaction is After 3 wears the jacket got pills on the fabric in the armpits area! the sportswear supposed to be designed resistant to more usage than a few wears.
Poor quality for $148

Best jacket EVER!
I bought this jacket 2 months ago in inkwell/black. I wanted it but for $148 I found it really pricey. But since I bought it I wear it constantly with crops/pants and here and there...everywhere! I love how it comes in at the waist and how it hugs my curves. It fits like a glove. it looks great open or zipped all the way up. i hate bulky hoods but this one isnt so i forget about it. Very flattering! The pockets are cool too. I had to have another one and my sister grabbed me the coral/dune/black one on markdown. I say "yes please"! I'm shocked my other one hasn't faded or fell apart by me over wearing it so to me all in all the high price tag is worth it to me. I bought my tts which is a 2 and for reference I'm 5 feet 110 pounds. So what are you waiting for? Get one now before they're gone!

Here comes Speed Racer!
I love my Studio Surf jacket. Yes, it was expensive, but it fits like a glove. To be honest, I most frequently wear it on its less-detailed reverse side because I prefer the sleek lines of the black with pops of vibrant green at the wrist and frond/zap stripes on the hood. I agree with the other reviewer who said she feels like Danica Patrick when she wears hers on its brighter side; I know I have woken up feeling confident to decide to flip to the boldly patterned side.

Cute Jacket! (pretty pricy though, even on sale)
I just picked this up in the store (barely on sale for $128). It was an impulse purchase since I was shopping for someone else, but the frond/faded zap/black was really cheery and called to me. (Makes me feel a bit like Danica Patrick haha).
I'm 5'7" and muscular, and most of my Lulu items are 6s but could easily be 8s. I wound up buying this jacket in the green/black combo in a 6 only because there was no 8. The 6 is very fitted (fits similarly to the green/black on the model), and I would not say in a bad way except that the green color-blocking on the side, combined with the luon material, does not hide "bra bulge" if you aren't 100% lean (which I am not). That's my only real caveat with the 6--you'd think, to make it more slimming, the black would be on the sides and the colored part in the middle.
Anyways, the 8 fit wonderfully, slim but just a tad more room, but my dog jumps all over me so I couldn't purchase in the pink/dune version, and the black/inkwell wasn't available.
I was told in-store that it was reversible as well, and while it may not be "officially" reversible, I think you could get away with it. There are no pockets and no Lulu emblem on the reverse side, but since the color I chose reverses to basic black it seems like it would be totally fine that way, though at certain seams the bright green stitching shows through--again, not a deal breaker for me, and for the sake of versatility AND getting my money's worth, I will wear it both ways!

I really like this jacket, except for the fact there's no thumbholes or cuffins. I'm tall and slim, and the sleeve was a tad short. But the price is RIDICULOUS. If it was priced around $100, I would live with the issues above, but for $150 it needs to be perfect, and it's not. Also, with the smooth seam interior, it should have been made to be reversible. Bought it, but felt ripped off when I got home. So I returned it. Bummed, because it was the closest fit to the define that I've tried in awhile.

Price is the only issue!!! Too expensive
I tried this jacket on today and LOVE it. The hood is great, the color blocking adds to the style and I didn't feel like it was too much. Material is amazing. I'm a Define jacket lover, so this is right up my alley. I do wish there were thumbholes. Either way, the sleeves are long enough that I can easily pull them down. I'm usually a 4 in the jackets, but the 6 fit perfect. A touch snug, but very comfortable and flattering.
I will NOT buy this jacket until it goes on sale. It is not worth $150. Great jacket, but should NOT be priced this high. Lulu please reduce and I'll buy 2 b/c I truly love it. At this price though....I can leave it at the store.

I tried it on in the store and thought it fit great, but I had several other items I wanted to purchase...My boyfriend wouldn't let me leave the store without it, so he bought it for me. I am 5'7", 130 lbs, and size 6 fit perfectly, tight without being TOO snug. The detailing is cool, I like the pockets. The black/inkwell looks great with jeans too:)

This is my first lululemon jacket. So far, I'm loving the material and the way it fits. I'm a little worried about pilling, especially at the sleeves, but so far, so good. And I personally love that it doesn't have thumbholes and the color blocking!
