It is the best thing I've purchased in my life.
The Vax hooded cloak is beautiful! All of the details are spot on and the quality of the fabric feels exceptional! Truly everything I expected and so much more!
Son absolutely loves it.
If I review this as a blinded fan boy, there's no room for improvement it's perfect shut up and take my money. If I review this as a small business owner examining what would I expect to get for $75- based on materials, design and execution, I think there's room for some notes for the next iteration.
Materials, I'm satisfied price for value received! There's obviously a bit of profit margin there but compared to other $75 merch items with this much material, it's in the normal range.
The Medium Fit on me feels good, wasn't too tight on an athletic build.
I really love the Easter egg references that were unique to the character, the flower, the dagger dagger dagger, the quote. However the wings were a huge miss for me for a few reasons.
Type-The wings are silvery, not ravens wings.
Color- It would have made more sense to be glossy black or two tone grey and black wings.
Placement- this and size were the biggest disappointment for me when paying this price- the graphic appeared to be a generic pair of folded wings that so many people get off google and tramp stamped. It doesn't look custom designed. The wings are so close together and land between the shoulders whereas a wider placement at each shoulder blade would have been more appealing across such a long piece of material. Just looks small and random.
Size - the cloak is body length, these wings needed to go from shoulder to butt or so to give the impression of ravens wings ready to support a person in flight. I suspect the cost of making the wings bigger would have cut into their profit margins more than they desired or would have made the item more than they felt was right to charge, but if I'm spending 75 on a niche clothing item that is both representing a beloved character and made by their company , I'll spend 120.
Overall I love it. But any time I have to explain the wings to a non critter they say the same thing, doesn't look like raven wings, looks like the white girl tramp stamp or shoulder Tat. So it's frustrating.
Still love it and wear whenever it's cool out!
This hoodie is amazing! While I probably could have gotten a smaller size and it still be fine, I do love how it fits on as it is.
And it is very warm so far for this Midwestern winter, the double layer stopping the wind from going right through. I’m amazed with it and it’s one of my new most favorite things!
