The neck on the Draft Dodger looks big and loose similar to the Gust Buster jacket. I returned the GB for that reason. Wouldn't consider the DD as the price is too high and the lace is not for me. I have found the prices unreasonably increased on all LLL recent products. I just refuse to pay and others are feeling the same way given the comments and how slow the products are moving.
The 3rd Quarter Conference call is coming up in a couple of days. It ought to be interesting.
So is the lace hood on the bundle up jacket the same reflective as the arms on the draft dodger? Does anyone know?If so I LOVE that.... incorporating reflective bits is so important up here where it gets pitch black at 5pm...
I don't see the bold in the cold pant on the Canadian site? Am I blind? Or is it sold out already?
Tried on the Draft Dodger jacket today - it runs big by one size at least.
I love the look of the draft dodger jacket, and could really use it, but I will NOT pay 200$ for it! that's fairly outrageous. I got a running soft shell from mec for 30$ that works just fine. Less flattering, but I don't care anywhere near enough for the extra price. Make it 120 or less and I'll probably buy it.
I really love the beaming blue bundle up -- i hope it sticks around til after Christmas! a nice WMTM markdown on Dec 26 would be extra sweet!!
Tried on the DD and reflective bundle up in the store. I don't really care for the bundle up, too much going on with that jacket. The reflective and lace was also too weird looking and heavy. I like the idea, but not the execution. Made the hood feel and fit strangely. Good news on the DD, it's not too tight in the shoulders like some LL jackets, but I was swimming in it up top. Too much material for my frame. Those who are bigger up top may like it. Got a turn around in AL instead. It grew on me. The Bold in the Cold pants were baggy and unflattering.
Anonymous @ 10:52 PM - All the lace bits on the new jackets are reflective!Watch out for the Polar Cream and Black Bundle Up though... I tried it on yesterday and it leaves shiny white fuzzies all over your clothes!! The fleece is soft but doesn't seem the greatest quality if if comes off on everything.Also tried on the Draft Dodger Jacket... It's a nice jacket for warmer places I think, but definitely not good enough for snowy cold Alberta. And DEFINITELY not worth $200!
@ anon 7:25 am - thanks for the fit review on the Bold in the Cold pants. I am hoping to try them on today.
The new stuff coming from Lulu in the last few weeks has been so fugs.... What is going on? The prints and colors are so gaudy. I'm waiting for a basic fleece pullover like the apres or post run from a couple years ago. Anyone else agree? At least I've been saving money!
Sorry it wasn't a very detailed fit review. I prefered the toasty tights, they were compressive. The bold in the cold pants were a weird mix of wanna be soft shell pants, wanna be running pants. North Face does soft shell pants better. More expensive, but better fit.
I also finally got to try on a returned Off the Mat jacket in my size. I hated all the material up top. Glad I didn't online order. Curious to try on the Miracle Jacket, altho no way would I pay 300 for it.
I've been a Lulu devotee for 7 years and I'm not too impressed with their offerings lately. I like the style of the Draft Dodger jacket and I like the black/white contrast. However, $198 is too much. It doesn't look lined (not much anyway), there's no hood - why such a high price?
