New! For The Helluvit Jacket

Thanks to reader Ms. E for sharing her store find. A new jacket out in Canadian stores called The Helluvit Jacket. The outer jacket is a water proof glyde rain jacket, the inner portion of the jacket is a detachable down jacket that is also reversible and it is water resistant. It's a little strange that Lululemon is releasing this jacket for Spring 2016 vs. Winter 2015. It would have sold through way more had it been available for winter. For such a high price point season peace you'd likely want to use it for a full season before packing it away.

  1. I don't think I would even try it on at this point. Two reasons: too late in the season, and the price!! Holy crap! I get that it's two, two! Two jackets in one! (Wasn't that Dentyne?), and it looks like the inner one is reversible, however for $300 I'd better be able to wear it for the whole season. What if I put it away and forget about it next year, since I didn't get to wear it much this year so it's not in my mind? There's nothing on it that screams "I'm a special coat!", no gold threading, no super special features. I believe it is an easy pass, and that the WMTM price would still be too high.

  2. It's amazing. I tried it today. I'm in love but I just a can't justify it right now. It's like the RAR and the other one w the zipper on the back had a baby. Not as long as the RAR but shaped well (not boxy) and just a bit more room than the RAR. With the inner zipped in it can easily be a winter weight jacket. It would be amazing for East Coasters who have wet and cool winters. Now to find $300....

  3. And the blue is not inkwell!! It's darker than pigment but has a beautiful sheen to it.

  4. I really hope it makes it to the U.S.! I might have to get it and hope I don't forget about it by next winter!

  5. I would really like to see more pictures of this jacket, especially the back. If I am going to pay that price I would have to love everything about it and I don't know if I am loving the print in the first pic which I believe is the inner layer? I need more info!!!

  7. I'm not paying Lululemon $300 for anything, especially when better looking, 800+ fill is available elsewhere for less.

    1. I agree with this. I feel the same with a lot of lulu street wear which I can buy nicer items and designs for that cost.

  8. I know I sound like a broken jacket but why oh why not a waterproof running jacket?

  9. It is too late for this jacket even by Vancouver standards. It does not seem special in the way LLL used to be and the $300 price tag is a very easy pass. I will also pass on the jacket on markdown where it is destined to go - and sooner rather than later I predict

  10. These prices are horrendous. I just bought the cozy up buttercup in store and it's going back. Once I got it home and really looked closely at the fit and shape it's not worth $200. Unflattering and you have to fuss around a lot with the top and hood to get it to lay right. Disappointed to say the least.

  11. I don't recommend trying it on unless you're prepared to buy it! It's a beautiful coat and I love the versatility of it. The floral print inside the black jacket is gorgeous. I live in Calgary and regardless of the warm temperatures we are currently getting, I know there will be another cold snap. The coat without the liner is light enough to wear all through Spring and again in fall. The price was definitely more than I was comfortable with, but I couldn't resist. It will definitely be my "go to" jacket.
