Fit Review! Athleta Tugga Sherpa Jacket and Tugga Long Sherpa Jacket

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a nice weekend. How's everyone's holiday shopping going? Are you almost done? I'm about halfway there. Today I have an Athleta review of their sherpa items.

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches and typically a size XXS/PXS/XS in Athleta.

Tugga Sherpa Jacket Natural Size XS

I reviewed this jacket last month in the black size PXS and returned it because I felt it was too cropped. I decided to reorder it in the size XS in the color natural. Maybe it's the color and the longer length, but it totally made a huge difference. It is a much better fit. The natural color is a very pretty cream shade.

The sleeves are a little long, but I like the slight slouch. It's not overly ridiculous on me. I really love the natural color and the dark burgundy accents that turns this sherpa jacket into a sporty varsity jacket. It's semi fitted and roomy enough to layer underneath. I do have one gripe about this jacket. It is not lined and the sherpa is also on the inside. Normally, this wouldn't bother me, but the zipper from the outside pocket kind of pokes at me and I can feel the zipper on the inside. It's hard to explain, but if there was a lining, it would have masked that. The jacket feels thin and light weight but in actuality it is very warm. I've already worn it out in 40 degree temperatures here at night and it's been warm and cozy. This one is a keeper!

I also decided to try the Tugga Long Sherpa Jacket in black. I am wearing a size XS. I would have ordered the XXS but the size was sold out. In this case, I definitely needed the smaller size. The XS is really big on me.

Tugga Long Sherpa Jacket Black Size XS

The length isn't bad. It hits about mid thigh. The sleeves however are much longer. The jacket looks very oversized on me. While the oversized look is definitely on trend at the moment, I don't think it suits my petite frame. I will say that this jacket is super warm and cozy. It would definitely get you through the next snow apocalypse!

The hood is ginormous!

That's it for me! Here's to another week! If you're new to Athleta, you can receive 20% off your first item with my referral code



  1. I really like the regular length Tugga jacket on you, I have the black and olive green colors and have worn both a number of times. The xs looks much better on you than the xxs. I actually went with the tall length and it gave me an extra inch of fabric. I don’t like jackets that are super cropped.

    The Tugga Long Sherpa Jacket does look quite big on you! I kept mine, which makes me look like the marshmallow puff guy on Ghostbusters, but it’s so soft and warm and I’ve worn it a lot up here in the mountains where I live.

    1. You have the best winter closet full of all the jackets I want! I'm jealous!

    2. It gets super cold and windy where I live and I told my husband I would need a vast aray of warm clothing if we lived in the middle of nowhere!! :D

    3. I would say the same exact thing!

  2. The short jacket definitely looks much better than the long version on your petite frame. The color makes it look like a big marshmallow LOL! Must be warm and cozy! The hood of the long jacket is a deal breaker to me. Don’t mind the overall oversized look but why such a gigantic hood?!!

    I was at Lululemon over the weekend and saw the Warm Restore Sherpa Wrap in Heathered White which reminded me of an Old English Sheepdog! :D. I don’t like how it looks when unbuttoned so didn’t even bother to try it on. Can’t believe the black one is sold out online already!
