Love Hoodlamb, but not this hoody!
I recently purchased this hoody from Dogfunk and was extremely excited. I have owned multiple Hoodlamb jackets and other gear since they first came out on the market. They are known for great design and high quality materials. Unfortunately, the furry hoody has been an exception in my experience.
The hoody feels and looks great on, it is not bulky yet keeps you very warm. My first issue with this product is the quality of materials- the synthetic fur is nothing like the Hoodlamb jackets I own. It looks and feels cheaper- I imagine they have changed manufacturers recently. The more pressing issue is that the construction of the hoody is pretty weak, quite literally. Within a month or so of light wear- the hoody started falling apart at the seams- see pic. Thats about a 4" separation below the sleeve... This should not happen on a $200 hoody- at least not for a few years!
I tried to get a replacement from DogFunk and they no longer had the size/color I was looking for. I even went as far as contacting Hoodlamb directly and they were not much help. Hopefully Hoodlamb can get their manufacturing down as well as their customer service!
