Womens black hooded fake fur jacket wanted

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Mrs endo shall be coming skiing for the first time in Jan. Despite many, many jackets available on line she has a specific request. Black jacket, black false fur trimmed hood, no belt. I'm finding nothing, she's likely to be size small or maybe medium in some brands. She wants it for use back here for dog walking afterwards. Found a perfectly good N FAce at Brighams on offer, but the fur is the wrong colour! Surely I could dye it? Any other suggestions?

Spyder on eBay? Sold my old one for £50. Why does she want a hood that just gets in the way?

I have no idea!!! Mainly cos she knows no better. 3 of us have tried telling her with no luck. May get her to try TNF one at Snozone and just dye the damn fur thing. Not that she will be allowed to ski with that in place.. It has taken me 27 years to get her to agree to try skiing.

Bognor? Or Snow and Rock have loads of furry hoods, but I think your colour scheme may be too specific even for them.

Be careful of high end brands on eBay – a lot will be fakes.

She's not having Bognor!! I'm going to make sure she likes the TNF one, and learn how to dye a fake fur thing.

@endoman, make sure the fur is removable from the hood first, then at least you won't ruin the whole jacket!

@Scarlet, Mine was genuine...bought in a spyder store in the US. agreed re removing the fur...first thing I did, then I removed the hood..and not because of dyeing. Spyder fur tends to be real though

@holidayloverxx, sorry, I wasn't suggesting you were selling a fake, just that a lot if the Spyder stuff will be because of the prestige attached to the name. TNF and other well-known brands are just as bad, so best to buy from a known distributer. That they use real fur would be enough for me to avoid them anyway, as fake fur is pretty good these days if that's your thing.

@Dave of the Marmottes, yeah...its cheap and ticks the boxes.. black, fake fur and no belt


@Scarlet, I have no problem with some fur. I have a trapper hat made from musquash that I bought in desperation in canada when I was freezing...it is known as the rat hat. I rarely wear it now but I would if it was cold enough. no fur...fake or otherwise...on my gear these days. I buy for useage not fashion....apart from a bobble hat bought as a gift...i think it is fake

that Eider would be perfect except for the real fur bit. Mrs endo is vegan so not a chance she would wear it. Off to EB after work tonight to persuade her on TNF.

Bit weird as a vegan to even want to be wearing something that could seem like it came from unnecessary slaughter of an animal no? I suggest you enter into a healthy marital debate with Mrs E and let us know how it turns out wink

Sugar just seen your Vegan comment.

I think your wifey wants putting down Toofy Grin Toofy Grin

Have to say why Vegans or anti fur people think its ok wearing fake fur which in some way encourages the fashion of fur is beyond me. Also half the time it is actually real fur but said to be fake (be careful of those cheap Chinese sites!)

We have purchased the North Face one thank goodness. There is no debating with Mrs Endo! Lessons booked at Chillfactore also, I pity the poor instructor!
