Uba Hoodie *Softshell
My favorite lulu item so far!
I ordered this uba in black about 10 days ago and absolutely love it. I wear it everyday as the perfect spring coat. I now need it in red off they come back in my size. I stayed true to my scuba size and I'm glad I did the four fits perfect. The reason I gave it 4 stars not 5 is because there is some slight bunching in the stitching that really bothers me. For the price I would expect nothing less than perfect from lulu which is (of course) what we are all used too. I added a photo sort of hard to see but the bunching occurs in three places.

I read many reviews of different products before deciding what to treat myself to. This jacket had wonderful reviews. Now that my jacket has arrived, I can see why. I ordered the inkwell colour and it is gorgeous. I have previously tried on the forme jacket, and it looks terrible on me. I would say it makes me look twenty pounds heavier. The uba hoodie fits amazingly and makes me look like twenty pounds lighter. The price is reasonable for the product, especially if you are comparing it to other brands of outdoor spring/fall jackets. I love the thumbholes and the jacket is so comfy I never want to take it off. There is still plenty of snow and cold here in Northern B.C. and this jacket has kept me warm.

I knew a few people who already had this jacket and were obsessed with it! Despite the high price they definitely recommended it and since I was looking for a new spring/fall type jacket I figured I would give it a shot. I am 5"7 and 140lbs give or take (upper body is smaller) and I am usually a size 6 in most tops/sweaters but with certain things I will size up because I HATE when things are too short on me.
I was a little iffy on the size because I read some reviews saying that the jacket was a little short. I also talked to a sales consultant who said that she sized up so that she could layer with it. Still, I took my friends advice and ended up getting my usual 6. It did fit, but it was a little snug for layering. It fit more like a sweater and I felt it was too short for me. Still, the jacket was beautiful! I ended up ordering a size 8 to compare and ended up keeping it. If you like things to fit a little more snug or don't plan to wear sweaters or layer it at all then I would say keep your normal size! The higher size also gave me a little more length which I was definitely more comfortable with.
Either way, this jacket is great! I love how it feels and the sleek look of it. I definitely plan to wear this everywhere, whether it is to the gym or out for the night. Definitely worth the money and one of my favourite purchases to date!

warmer than it looks
I bought this jacket to casually wear on a snowboarding trip. It's very warm and the pockets and fleece are amazing features. Only thing I would have done differently is go down a size. I'm usually a size 6 in Lulu tops so I ordered a 6 in the jacket and it's a little loose. Don't get me wrong it's probably going to be perfect for layering in colder weather. However, for everyday use I would have preferred something more fitted and the sleeves are a bit long. Still a great jacket all around!

I live on the West Coast, so what sold this jacket for me was being waterproof/resistant. All of my zip ups in this style are fleece or cotton which just doesn't work with the amount of rain we get!
It is really cute,but I would honestly have to say over priced for what it is. Having said that, I didn't want to chance that my size and color would be gone by the time it got to "We made too much"...so I paid full price. Get it on sale if you can! If the zip in part was a full long sleeve, I could see paying this price. I do like the high soft neck in the zip in. I can't explain why I love thumbholes, but I do and now I dislike wearing long sleeves without them now! Wish the pockets had zippers and I would have thought a small additional back or sleeve pocket would have been a great addition. The hood was the other seller for me, but would have toggles or something else to keep the hood snug--we also get alot of wind where I live so I realise not all people would be looking for that feature. All in all, I am happy and really like the jacket, just think its slightly over priced.

I just received my uba today in inkwell, and I am pleased to say I love it! I actually returned the scuba stretch, disappointed with the changes from the original scuba. (Please bring back original scuba). This jacket looks great for Newfoundland Spring weather; I plan to wear it to work in the am!
I ordered the uba in size 6, same sizing as original scuba and it fits fine. Some of the reviews are saying to size down, however, I find the sizing spot on! For reference I am 130 lbs, 5'4.
Great job lulu!

Please, Please, Please make more colors!
I saw a girl at my gym with this jacket and really liked the look and feel. I went to lulu and tried it on, but was unsure. My husband ended up giving it to me for valentines day in "love red". I can honestly say, this is by far my favorite lulu jacket. It fits perfectly, I am a size 4 in everything and this as well. I wear it for everything, long runs, out, perfect to go workout in, and basically everywhere in between. Please come out with more colors, because I can't find it in my size in any other colors!!

Love this uba hoodie! I ordered both Ubas and sent the other back! This one fits perfect! I find it a tiny bit looser then a scuba, I'm a 6 and a 6 in this as well! I got it yesterday and haven't taken it off!!!
