Official description

The Mountain Horse Lauren is an elegant ladies down jacket with PFC-free water-repellent finish and faux fur on the hood.

First impressions

This jacket was beautiful and fitted me perfectly.

Overview of performance

This jacket kept me so warm if I wasn’t doing much, but it was too hot to work in, which meant I had to take it off a lot. The hood is really big and it is detachable, which is handy. It wasn’t waterproof at all and when the faux fur on the hood got wet it dripped a lot and never really recovered. However, the main part of the jacket wore well.

Their likes and dislikes

I loved how warm it kept me while I wasn’t moving, and I loved the style. It’s dry clean only, which isn’t ideal for a yard or riding jacket as they get dirty quickly.

Verdict

This jacket is perfect for dry weather when you’re not too active — I’d definitely wear it to a show.
