The Alo Yoga Foxy Sherpa Jacket is one of my favorite athleisure pieces. This bomber-style jacket is incredibly cozy, but the plush sherpa is on the heavier-side, so it’s more cumbersome than traditional fleece full-zip jackets.
I also like that it doesn’t have (m)any unnecessary details (the only conspicuous branding is the Alo logo on the left sleeve), mostly ones that I find functional: zippered hand-warmer pockets; a removable hood; and ribbed cuffs/hem. In terms of warmth, while this jacket is great for transitional weather, it is not wind-resistant or waterproof, so wouldn’t be sufficient (on its own) for northeast winters.
Because the fit is intentionally oversized (to allow layering) and and the length cropped, I wouldn’t recommend sizing down. While the sleeves are too long on 5’2 me, in darker colors the excess fabric isn’t noticeable, and the ribbed cuffs keep the sleeves from sliding down.
I know $188 is spendy for a sherpa jacket, but the Foxy Jacket is well-made and Alo is a popular DTC company with some after-sales service, so I am willing to pay a little more for the brand name.
You can buy the Alo Foxy Sherpa Jacket at Alo, Amazon, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale’s, eBay, Neiman Marcus, Shopbop, and The Yes.
The Foxy Jacket is also offered with faux-fur in five colorways:
