Faux Fur at its best!
on December 22, 2013
I have purchased the Marmot Furlong jacket and now the vest. In my experience, I find that the jacket has a more relaxed cut than the vest. I struggle to zip the base of the vest, yet I can wrap the top of the vest around my bust (my proportions are such that my waist is much smaller than my bust, and I would assume that I would have the opposite experience). I wear an XL in almost all clothing manufacturers, and this is a SNUG fit for the hip/waist for my body. The exterior of the jacket is a moisture wicking fabric that also shuns wind and other inclement elements. The interior is a micro fleece that is soft and warm. My absolute most favorite part of the Furlong line is the faux fur. It is lovely and plush, and I receive compliments every time I wear either garment. My only reservation was how the "fur" lining of the armholes may be perceived. In wearing the vest with a variety of colors and fabrics, I have let go of that reservation. So, I will stop eating chocolate and work on closing the zipper, and in the meantime I will rock the vest-- opened!
