Gap Canada has a beautiful clearance sale on right now. In the sale, I found this Fur Trim Puffer Jacket (grey) on sale from $158 down to $62.99. Using coupon code GAPHAPPY the price comes down to just $44.09. Gap calculates free shipping (on $50) before coupon codes so thus jacket still qualifies for free shipping even though the final price is below $50.
This is a gorgeous coat! It is made of 40% wool, 30% cotton, 25% polyester, 5% other materials. Wool is super warm and a fantastic fiber to include in garments that are meant to keep you cozy and dry. The jacket is filled with 80% down and 20% feather fill.
Because of the material (wool) and the fill (down/feathers), The Gap suggests you only dry clean this coat. Dry cleaning is not actually as expensive as I thought it would be. I recently dry-cleaned two well-loved pleated wool skirts and it only cost me $15 per skirt.
The fur trim around the hood is faux fur for all you animal lovers. The puffer jacket features adjustable storm cuffs, side pockets that are lined with fleece and zip closed, as well as a bungee drawcord at the hem to keep all the warmth in. The jacket is fully lined so your skin only touches soft fabric. As for length, this jacket hits around the hip on an average height woman.
The faux fur puffer jacket averages a 4/5 star rating with 38 reviews. Here is one of the reviews:
I bought this exact coat except in the vest version and LOVE it. I get so many compliments. It fits well and the fur on the hood is soft and good quality. When I saw the jacket on sale I just had to have it too! My only criticism is I would prefer it to be a little bit longer in length.
The length appears to be the primary problem that people cite. Most of them wish the jacket was a tad bit longer and many taller women say the jacket barely covers their waist. Take this into consideration when you purchase this jacket. Fortunately, the jacket is not final sale and you could return. I find it easiest to return Gap purchases at my local store instead of mailing the item back in.
The coupon code that makes this deal so good ends tomorrow.
