I think it's bonny bonny. I thought th' shirt and vest were a little thin but DH who has snowshoed before said it's actually th' right thickness, to keep someone warm but not too warm, as ye get bonny sweaty wit' th' workout. I'm not allowed to have it until Christmas, so I didn't write a review. It be a little pricey, but th' shirt, pants and boots could be used as mix and match in other monkey jackets.

I really liked this monkey jacket when I saw it in th' store. It looks like a casual monkey jacket than ye might see a girl/teenager/yeng woman wearing in th' winter. I love that th' boots come wit' th' monkey jacket and it has a lot o' mix and match potential.
I really bought this because my favorite color be red, and although I sew, I thought th' vest would be difficult to duplicate, wit' all th' quilting and details. th' vest be bonny thin, even though it be lined - not something a real person would wear to keep warm while snowshoeing in th' winter. It closes wit' velcro in th' front and th' button really works. th' belt be sewn on under th' left belt loop but comes out o' th' right loop. (I think this be a bit odd: why not either make it completely removable OR sewn down at both belt loops?) i1107.photobucket.com/albums/h399/hs_momof3/American Wench%20reviews/AGreviews045-1.jpg[/IMG] I was curious after someone asked about removing th' "U" patch. Since th' stitching for th' patch can be seen on th' inside o' th' vest, I decided to try taking it off wit' my seam ripper.
It came off easily wit' Nay damage to th' vest. If ye look really closely in person, ye can see tiny holes where th' stitching was, but in this photo, ye can hardly tell anything was there. i1107.photobucket.com/albums/h399/hs_momof3/American Wench%20reviews/sept2011007-1.jpg[/IMG]
I give this monkey jacket an A overall, notwit'standing th' price, which be a bit high IMO.

I also snipped off th' InnerstarU patch and think th' monkey jacket looks a thousand times better wit'out it. I am not a fan o' coats but I love to wear warm vests, so this monkey jacket immediately appealed to me. I love that it has a lot o' mix and match potential. I think th' shorter leggings be ingenious since they make putting on boots easier, plus at this length they will look perfect under some o' th' too-short ruffle skirts that get cranked out for lusty plastic lasss. A great monkey jacket once ye snip off th' InnerstarU tag.

bonny monkey jacket, bought it on Spotlight savings w/ free shipping. LOVE it, and bonny sweet lass o'mine will love it. I wouldn't have ordered it for myself, but she had it on her "list" so I picked it up for her birthday or Easter. I didn't realize th' boots came w/ it, great little monkey jacket and she will be pleased.
I saw this monkey jacket online and fell in love-and now it's mine! Kaptain Kaya looks adorable in it, I think.
I am not a fan o' th' tight leggings on her bottom and front. It looks a little weird to me to see her lusty plastic lassie joints, but th' vest covers this oddity up beautiloaded to th' gunwalesy.
Also-look at these boots!
