    Love it. The waist is not at fitted at it looks in the picture, but still very comfy and very warm. Not particularly wind resistant however.

    Dries very fast - I washed it and in the pile of wet clothes in the washer, it was almost dry before I did the switch to the dryer.

    Awesome Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This jacket keeps my wife so warm. She is almost always cold, but the monkey fur works wonders for her. It is a great insulating layer for hiking and around town. She is 5'4" and 110, and an XS fits perfectly. Great product.


      This jacket is great. I am about 5'9, 125 and ordered a medium. I'm pretty happy with the fit, a little extra space around the mid section, but the sleeves are a great length. So soft and cozy. If you have had other monkey jackets from this brand, this one is just as great-for about 1/2 the price!

      Great piece...

        I love this "jacket" because I can wear it as a sweater around the house or out. Functional piece that is warm and flexible. I have worn it for a winter run and with jeans when going out. I am 5'2" and purchased the small - wish it was a tad shorter, but am still very happy with the fit.

        Terrible fit!!!

          Not nearly as nice looking as on this picture. The shape is so weird and not fitted at all. I am 6'0" girl and very athletic (not too skinny) and usually have to go with XL (when buyingTNF, Norrona, Arc'teryx, Marmot..) because of my shoulders and especially my arm length, my torso is also long. So I bought this jacket in XL, too. It turns out, it fits my mother, who wears XXL or XXXL. It's very wide in the shoulders (even for me), arm length is barely ok, but it is so wide in the torso area, and in the neck area, too. The hoodie is way too big (for some giant-head maybe) - not practical at all. it is ridiculous and it just looks awful overall. If I go buy a Large or even Medium, the arm length is going to be a problem and length of the jacket, too. I am returning it immediately!!! The only nice thing about it is the material. It is really super soft and comfortable, but that's it.

          is this jacket warm?

          Thomas. This jacket is warm. Especially when layered underneath a shell or softshell. It is not very windproof however. So, it will feel the warmest when layered or worn on a mellow weather day! I hope this info helps!
