- Fitted Happy Goat Lucky Down Coat in a Nutshell
Disclosure: Ad. This coat is a sample of my choice from Happy Goat Lucky. The post is not endorsed by them. I wrote it entirely on my own and it represents my own 100% honest opinion.
Moving to Alaska
When we moved to Alaska in summer 2001, Judy gave me recommendations of which hairdresser, which vet, which doctors, where to buy what, car repair shop, etc. When the list was about one and a half pages long, Judy asked “Do you have a down coat?” “No, I wouldn’t wear that! I don’t want to look like the Michelin Man!” I replied with a horrified voice and face. “You need to buy one asap. Go to XYZ (here XYZ is a placeholder for the store, Fairbanksans surely know which one). They have the largest selection.” she insisted. “And when you want a choice, go before the just-arrived military wives start shopping when the first flurries fly in September.”
I Was in Tears
We took her advice seriously and drove to the store. A big building from the 1950s with a gold miner advertisement store sign. “Ok, ok, there are some motels and hotels in the area. The design of the sign is to attract the tourist for souvenirs.” was my first thought. Wishful thinking! Once in the store, I felt like being beamed into the wrong world.
Upon entering the women’s department I fell in tears! Outdoor clothes! Heavy like my granny’s old bedding, and they also looked like being cut from them! Three rectangles and a half moon with a scratchy wolf fur trim! The colors? They just emphasized the first impression. Yellowish white, muted white, baby pink, light blue! They made me look awful! I hated my reflection in the mirror! I refused to spend a dime on one of these monsters!
Happy Goat Lucky Brings Style to the North
You can imagine that when asked by Happy Goat Lucky to review their down coats I was skeptic like that’s not my style nor me. Nevertheless, I took a look at their webpage and I am so glad I did! 🙂 Finally, down coats that have a stylish look, great trendy and classic colors, nice details, and most importantly a fitted cut!!!!!!
The models looked their weight and size and not 3 or 4 sizes up.
There is no need to look like a dumpling when wearing a down coat. #HappyGoatLucky Click To Tweet
Finally, a Down Coat with a Fitted Cut
I picked the Grace in camel in a size XS and its fit is true to size. You can also order it in black or dark rose.
There is nothing more flattering than a Princess seam cut in the front and back of a garment.
These vertical lines together with the covered zipper front closure have a slimming effect on every body shape. The press buttons are easy to open, even with cold fingers. They look stylish and decorative, chosen with love for details. The same applies for the dyed-to-match fur-trimmed hoodie.
I have never ever felt such a light-weight smooth fabric! The coat is so cozy and light weight, I honestly look forward to wearing it again. Full disclosure, since it arrived on Thursday, I haven’t worn any of my other coats!
I can't believe I fell in love with a downcoat! #HappyGoatLucky Click To Tweet
I love the Grace! <3 It’s so me! So incredibly stylish!
The filling consists of high-quality down (90% downs, only 10% feathers). That’s why it is so light and feels so soft. It is ranked a 600-650 fill power.
The small horizontal compartments prohibit the filling to gravitate to the hem of the garment. Thus, the insulation stays well distributed. The different widths of the compartments add interest to the design. They look more like embelishment that serving a purpose.
Science says that people adapt over time to the weather conditions of the climate region they live in. Consequently, living in Alaska for more than 18.5 years, I am certainly adjusted to low temperatures. The Grace is rated as 3.5, i.e. it is good for temperatures between 35F and 50F (1.7oC to 10oC) with a light sweater. When we took the photos I was wearing a sweater with layering top underneath and I didn’t feel cold at all despite of 11F (-12C) and despite it was snowing. Thus, this piece is great for late fall when you live in a temperate climate and for winter in a Mediterranean climate like southern California. Learn more on what to look for in a down coat.
