Water Girl Santa Cruiser Jacket
Fabric: organic cotton
Price Paid: discount at Activa's sale
I love this jacket! I was after a hoodie that wasn't
so bulky, but still felt like a jacket. I wanted to be
able to wear it while being active, and it not 'get in the way' of what i was doing. Also, I wanted it to 'cross over' on an everyday level if I needed to look nice. It does the job of both! It's a hard working little jacket with a feminine twist...I love the little embellishment on the back. It's there, but not overdone. nice!
When I first saw the arc-cut of the pocket, I thought they would be hard to access because they seemed too far back on the side, but after wearing it, I liked them even better than those hoodie kind of pockets on the front.
They were easy access, but even more, they didn't interrupt with the clean look of the front, but they are substantial pockets! genius! It was if you took the classic hoodie and made it even better.
I really do like the cotton fabric - with the improved lines of this Santa Cruiser jacket, it makes the cotton seem special. It might be okay to do it in a more contemporary fabric, ONLY as long as you make it available always in this cotton with lots of colors. I love that it was in brown too. I really dislike it when companies make women's clothing color choices in pastel cotton candy colors! and give the men all the nice saturated colors!
PLEASE, PLEASE make this jacket available again!
