Lululemon Off The Mat Jacket in Black Swan! To Die For!

Omg, what was I thinking not getting the Lululemon Off The Mat jacket when it first came out???  Oh yeah... I live in Southern California!  I thought it was pretty cute but I just couldn't justify spending that much on a jacket I couldn't wear most of the year.  I think the retail price was close to $200 for this jacket?  I don't remember.  But I bought one on ebay a couple weeks ago!  I ended up getting it for $130 including shipping.  I don't think that's too bad at all.  I get cold quite easily... like as soon as it dips to lower 60s I start freezing lol.  So I am looking forward to wearing it soon!

I got it in size 4, my regular size, and I think it's a good fit.  It is like the softest, most cuddliest (is that a word?) thing ever!  It's made of sherpa fleece.  I love it!  I love the asymmetrical zipper style too.  The collar is huge, and probably not very practical for cold weather since it leaves your neck uncovered.  But it's perfect for the fake winters we have here!  Black swan is a beautiful dark purple color.  It looks more like black with purple undertone.  It's gorgeous... I took a bunch of pics!






You can also button the neck up so it becomes more of a cowlneck look... this way the collar doesn't look quite so big and unmanageable:





You can also leave both sides of the collar unbuttoned and then you have the biggest draping collar ever!  Like this:


The bottom has a double hem:



 Here's a look at the inside zipper.. so it flaps over and you zip it again on the outside:




Because of the asymmetrical style, the pockets are different sizes on both sides.  One is a lot bigger than the other, it goes all the way across the belly, like a hidden kangaroo pocket.  The other one is more like a credit card/cash slot.

I think I love everything about this jacket!  Had I tried it on in the store when it was out last year, I would have totally paid up and walked away with it!  I think this is my best purchase in a while!  Super stoked!

  1. I am so super jealous. This is the perfect comfy jacket. I recently bought the new (much thinner) Urbanite Jacket which I love but if I came across an Off the Mat in my size in black, I would sell it in a heartbeat.

  2. Looks really sweet on you! Reminds me a bit of the Bench Jackets- used to have on cozy, funnel neck fleece jacket long ago!
    If you like to sell the black Spirit Pullover, just let me know ;-)
    I´m searching for one, but on Ebay are only way to big ones recently.

  3. Would you buy an Off the Mat jacket off of eBay for $60 more than retail?

    1. A used one? No... I would wait and try to get one for a reasonable price.
