Jacket Review: The jacket itself is very light weight and fits pretty close to what the size guide suggests. It's a nicely made jacket but because of the material it's made from it seems like it could tear easily but I'm not sure it would (think trash bag like material). That being said, I think it does hold true to how it was described in the book.

The Problem: There were two Hunger Games jackets on amazon - a cheaper one (jacket only) and a more expensive one (jacket and liner). I purchased this one for $119.99 because by the price and the pictures, this was the jacket with the liner. The other jacket was selling for $49.00. However, amazon incorrectly labled the postings and put up the wrong pictures and I paid more for the jacket only - and to pay that much for the jacket without the liner is absurd (in my opinion). It's being returned.

Another thing I'd like to note- While I was waiting for the jacket to arrive, I saw that amazon flip-flopped the prices at least once (and marked up the jacket with the liner) and changed the pictures at least three times. It's very frustrating to think you're ordering one thing and another arrives AND all the while amazon can't make up their mind which jacket is which.

When I bought this jacket I was fully aware that it would be just the nylon jacket and no lining, yes it is very thin but it feels nice. For me, the size runs true. Like in the movie it goes down to katniss's thighs and it does the same for me with extra room. Since I got the regular version I planned on improvising and getting a black hoodie and red ribbon and lining the hoodie. Since I live in Massachusetts and our halloweens can range from 60 degrees to snow I'm glad I got this version because now I can add extra clothing under if needed. I did want the replica but not the price but I don't regret this jacket.

This jacket is probably the best that Hunger Games fans could ask for. It's the "economical" substitution for the deluxe version and it still holds up as a fantastic piece of movie memorabilia. The time I actually used it was to dress up as Peeta when I handed out candy this past Halloween and it kept me warm and comfortable. I could see myself using/wearing this as an actual jacket especially when out camping or hiking in the fall. This is basically the best you could get for movie merchandise and the closest you could ever get to having that "tribute" feeling when you're wearing it. Fans who love the books as well would like this too because the translation of the jacket from the book to the screen was perfect and every tribute had a black jacket in the book so this makes it even better. To me this was kind of a must have as a Hunger Games fan.
I would watch the sizes a little though. I got a large and it fits me perfectly other than the sleeves seemed a little shorter than they appeared on the actors in the movie and they were also a little bit snug on my arms. I think it might be because these ar unisex and are more along the lines of a medium/large kind of basis for sizing. But overall that did not efffect my favor for the jacket in any way as it is very minor. And the price changes a lot on this particular product on amazon- I got mine for $40.

I knew this would be a light weight, thin jacket, but this was a much cheaper material than I expected for the price I paid $59. Not worth it at all. Will be returned.

I just got this jacket not 2 hours ago and already adore it!!!!!!! The jacket is durable and really good product. Some of the other reviews said the material was cheapish, I don't know if I just got a better jacket or what because the material isn't cheapish at all! The only issue I think their is with this jacket is the size. I read the comments about the size being to small so i ordered a XL (i'm a medium) and it fits perfectly. So I suggest getting two sizes larger then what you are if you want it to fit. Other then that the jacket is amazing!! You need to get it if your a Hunger Games fan!

First off, I'd like to say that I read many reviews of this jacket before purchasing it. I read all the many comments about the quality of the material being very light and "cheapish" and that didn't bother me at all, I knew what to expect and I could live with it. The material is sort of cheapish feeling, but it seems like it could keep you quite warm when it is cold. HOWEVER, I ordered an Extra Large size, as I am 6'1 and a guy. I don't think this jacket was meant for men to wear it. I'm not overly fat or anything, maybe slightly, but I do have some muscle with broad shoulders. Even with this jacket at Extra Large, I could barely close the zipper because it was just too small. After closing the zipper, I could barely move my arms and the jacket was so tight everywhere.

After wearing the jacket I looked at a bunch of photos of Katniss wearing the jacket in the arena, and she has it unzipped in most photos, but it looks lose and baggy on her while wearing it. They must have given Jennifer Lawrence a XXXL of this jacket, or she is really, really small. The length of the jacket on me being 6'1 was just above my waist. I really, really wanted to like this jacket because I am a huge fan of how it looks and even feels. But being able to wear it and not look stupid would be a thing I would need. It just isn't going to happen with my size and lack of "Large" in this particular jacket.

So yes, there are two versions of the District 12 arena jacket. Yes, Amazon flip flopped the prices and images...more than once. I own both versions, one preordered through Amazon and one ordered through another company. I was lucky enough to get both versions, collectively, for less than the original $119 retail value of the full replica.

Personally, I love both versions. They are both useful as not only replica collector pieces, but also as costume pieces and everyday use (I have only used the nylon version and have yet to use the full replica though). They are comfortable and hold in heat well (even the nylon only windbreaker) just as described in the books. Word of warning for those who do choose to use their jackets: either invest in Febreeze or let your jackets hang a full day in a well ventilated area after each use. I found that not only do they hold heat and keep you warm, mine also held in your natural body odor.

I wear a 2X in everything. However, I've been losing a lot of weight lately, so I was worried it may not fit for long. But because of some other reviews talking about how small these were, I bought a 2X (which is the largest size) anyway. First of all, the only way this is 2X is if you're maybe sizing clothes for a toddler. Okay.... I exaggerate to clarify. But needless to say, it doesn't matter how much weight I lose. I'll never fit into this jacket. If the sizing were realistic, it would be a small or medium (at best). Also, it is very short in the torso. Regardless, I'm still going to keep it as a very cool looking piece of memorabilia for one of my favorite book series/movies. Hence why it gets two stars instead of one.

I really don't think this jacket is as durable as the one worn in the arena, it is more like the one Bradley Cooper wears in Silver Linings Playbook when he is jogging....yeah a trash bag. I could see wearing this in the spring/summer as a rain jacket, that is if it doesn't melt away from the rain. I mean this jacket is thin...thin thin. I only got it becasue it was $12. If you pay $60 for this you crazy. I gave it two stars because 1. it was only $12 and 2. I plan on dressing up as Katniss for Halloween next year so this will help. I'm 5'8 125 pounds and and extra large fit good.

Wore this jacket on Halloween and I just love the way it feels. I am going to add some orange ribbon and a liner to it to make it more like the movie.
