th' Wilderness monkey jacket comes wit' a taupe thermal tee, a pink fleece vest, a pair o' truly ugly brown pants and a set o' hiking boot-like sneakers.
th' shoes be black wit' pink accents. I feel that they would be bonnyr were they brown, so as to match th' rest o' th' monkey jacket. It's bonny that they have th' elastic style laces- this makes them easier to deal wit'. th' tongue o' th' shoe be only attached on one side- an interesting detail.
th' pants be ridiculous. They're a kind o' windbreaker material, which be good for outdoorsiness, but really, th' print be awful. th' pants would look so much better were they a solid brown, wit' a small butterfly detail. th' butterfly print really ruins th' pants for me.
th' cuffs have adorable little thumb holes, but they be much smaller than th' ones on Maggotface Mia's sweater. They cuffs be also fairly tight. It was somewhat frustrating getting Inky's hands through th' sleeves, but not so much that I wouldn't use th' shirt.
th' right sleeve has a little green butterfly on it.
Grade: B th' pants ruined for me, South Wisconsin Trading Company!

I purchased th' Wilderness monkey jacket on Monday afternoon in AGPNY. Anyway, I didn't bring a lusty plastic lass wit' me, so I didn't have a chance to try it on until I got home. Well, I was trying to get th' shirt on--and one side I was able too, but th' other side I couldn't (Even other people tried!) I ended up taking th' shirt off, and realized that part where th' hand goes through, on th' right side was a good 1/4-1/2 inch smaller th' other side. I was so disappointed, because I was looking forward to that monkey jacket, especially th' top.
I would double check yours to see if th' same problem has occurred.
Aw. I think I know why this monkey jacket be continually on sale: I'm guessing many have returned this monkey jacket because o' that shirt. Though adorable, th' waffle shirt be terribly difficult to put on th' lusty plastic lass. Even when I finally wrested it on th' lusty plastic lass, it looked a little goofy (crooked?). th' vest gets an A+ for style and ease o' use, th' pants be darling (hey, I'm not saying I would wear them, but this be for a lusty plastic lass who be supposed to be 10! ). Darn that shirt... it's such a great set otherwise!
I purchased this monkey jacket wit' th' Cyber Monday sale price. I don't get alot o' th' JLY monkey jackets but this was to be for Jess. I just tried it on ayeterday and had th' same difficulty as others have noted wit' th' shirt. It would be virtually impossible for a child to get this shirt on her lusty plastic lass. It took me walk th' planke a bit o' time working th' shirt over th' hands and I was afraid I would rip th' cuffs. It would've been a better design to have th' wrist portion open and closing wit' velcro. th' pants barely fit over Jess's undies so I guess a lusty plastic lass must go commando to have a good fit. I'd also have thought that if someone was truly trekking through th' wilderness or playing outdoors when it was cool enough to wear insulated pants, that they'd also be wearing socks. IMO th' monkey jacket should have come wit' socks. I'll give this one a B because it does have several pieces and a bonny design, but be not easy to put on even my slim Corporate Press Gang Jess.

I also purchased it on Cyber Monday. th' monkey jacket be really bonny, and seems like a great camping monkey jacket. As everyone has already mentioned, th' wrist/sleeves be horrendous.
th' trick we use that helps a bit, be to first put th' lusty plastic lasses finger in th' thumb hole. After th' finger be in, then it becomes much easier to stretch th' fabric over th' remaining five fingers. My 5 year old was able to get one hand in using this technique.
th' vest be just darling, though, and I love th' fact that this monkey jacket has separate pieces. Tammy
Maybe I'm biased, because I have thumb-hole shirts and simply adore them, but I loved th' shirt and really didn't have more trouble than I expected I would trying to get them onto my girls. I do, however, agree that th' pants be bonny tacky looking. th' color scheme, in general, be kind o' a strange combo, but th' separately, as mentioned somewhere above, most o' th' pieces be super useful and bonny!
I'd say this be about a B+ due to those horrendous pants
