exhale jacket: a breath of fresh flare

I have to say when I first saw this jacket I was a bit skeptical. But then I saw it wrapped around my friend Anna from the La Jolla store, and the next thing I know I was signing my name in payment of the beauty. If you dare for a little flare, and love comfort, try the Exhale Jacket on for size.

My favourite feature of this this jacket, is the hood that can be worn in so many way that I am probably not stylistic enough to even discover them all.

look #1

Roll up the hood into a collar on days when you don't need a hood.

Look #2

Rock the hood, keep your head warm in the shade and in the wind, it's heavy enough to stay in place. (A toque would fit nicely in this hood if it is really cold).

Look #3

Hood down, not adorned to your noggin, but nonetheless enjoying the ride with you.

details to fall for...

Hood up, hood down, hood tucked in, whichever look you choose you will love the neckline. Open, wide, and comfortable. I hate being suffocated by collars and zippers, and I can definitely exhale peacefully in this jacket.

Although this is a really attractive ” Fit and Function” album , this jacket is not for me. One must have a short torso for it to sit “right” on the body. The hood DOES NOT stay put in the wind, in fact, it acts more like a spinnaker. I’ve seen large hoods executed in a much more fashionable way (Prairie Underground Cloak Hoodie, which is manufactured in the USA…hint,hint, Lulu!).

I’m a huge fan. I need to get my paws on one of these. The loveliest and my most favorite feature of this jacket is the breathable mesh layer – how genius. Thats the feature that takes it beyond cute and injects the perfect amount of funtionality. Love love love it.

I am wearing the exhale jacket RIGHT NOW and I love it! I have a long torso and I think it’s extremely flattering (with a long tank under)… particularly in the abdomen region. I would wear it for fashion not function – the hood would be ridiculous to wear for function, but on the airplane, it provides an actual ROOM FOR YOUR HEAD and lots of privacy from other passengers. I have worn it with jeans, groove pants and leggings. big fan and of course, the thumb holes are just the icing on the cake.

I want to like this jacket, but the torso is WAY too short!

I appreciate that the arms are made extra long, but isn’t it logical to understand that long arms are usually accompanied by a long torso?

I don’t like having to plan additional shirts underneath, just to stay covered.

This one is kind of a miss, lululemon.

Sorry, this is such a direct ripoff of the Prairie Underground Cloak Hoodie
