Product review: Hot Chillys Swirl Long Jacket



By Emily Stifler Managing Editor

Hebgen Lake to Lone Peak, Swirl Long Jacket ($90) is cozy layer for Montana fall.

Definitely a casual piece, it’s slim and black and has the most appealing ‘swirl’ fleece lining in the front body and hood that snuggles around your neck like faux fur.

This fine denier, silky polyester fiber is “dreamy soft and luxurious to the touch,” says Hot Chillys designer Jerris Greenblat.

When I zip it up for a chilly morning, I like to imagine what it would be like to pull it on after a morning surf on the beach near San Luis Obisbo, Calif., where Hot Chillys is based.

“We always strive to be a little bit different,” said the company’s marketing director Sarah Perry. With the Swirl Long Jacket, they went with “a little bit of flair.”

A sweatshirt/jacket cross, I’ve worn it for après ski and taken it bouldering on a sunny winter day in the Pipestone desert. I was actually hot for about an hour in the mid-day desert sun. The hand warmer pockets were key for warming the digits after trying a problem.

It can attract a bit of lint, so have a tape roller on hand. Available in black, grey heather or surf (white).
