Katron Long Jacket
I own many jackets from Oiselle but as soon as this came into the store in the fall I knew I had to have my hands on it. Every time I came into the Flagship store I'd try it on (ink blue was calling my name). I saved up throughout the holiday season to finally get my jacket and have no regrets! I've been wearing it almost daily to and from work. It's perfect for those cooler PNW mornings. I don't think it would be the best jacket for a deep freeze like I grew up in the Midwest, but for those cooler 20-40 degree temperatures it's the perfect outer layer. Awesome product!
(I'm 5'6 and got a small - fits great!)
The long Katron is so soft and comfortable, it moves with you! I am so glad O put a hood on it, and the hood is very functional whether on it's own or over a beanie. At this price point I was expecting more warmth and insulation, as I definitely had to layer generously underneath for mid-40's temp. The sizing feels generous, I got my usual size M but it feels a size to big and bloomy. I was hesitant to size down because of the potential for tight arms. But, now I can keep those lofty layers underneath! It does shift a bit when walking, like it wants to scootch to the side (I was constantly adjusting it back) but it's not a deal breaker. This is not for a deep winter, but it would be great for mild winter, and fall and spring. I can not express enough how soft and easy this coat is to wear. I am giving it 4 stars because despite it being very comfortable, it did not fulfill the *winter* jacket need.
Love love love my new Katron Long Jacket... I feel like I'm wrapped up in a cozy and stylish sleeping bag! It's been perfect to wear on long walks and while standing on the sidelines at my son's soccer games. The length is so great and I like that it's not too puffy but keeps me warm with a sweater underneath. The soft fabric side panels and cuffs are a beautiful cozy touch. I bought the blue jacket and I love the pop of red on the zipper - I've received so many compliments from friends!
I am a big fan of the Flip Side Puffy Jacket, but got this jacket because it's longer and a little lighter. I am so glad that I did. It's long enough to block the wind but so much better for light activity outside (like dog walking) to keep the chill off but not get overheated. It also has a hood! It's so lightweight but still does an awesome job of keeping you warm but not too hot. I got my normal size XL and it's big enough to wear a big hoodie under comfortably without feeling like I'm in a wearable sleeping bag. My new favorite coat.
