Beautiful cape
By Leann from WA on 11/23/2013

I have another cape just like this one , same brand, I had purchased a few years ago and loved. I love this cape, very warm even though light weight. Very classy, drapes beautifully, wears well.

Beautiful Irish Walking Cape
By Katy from NY on 12/3/2013

The perfect Christmas gift. Beautiful Irish Walking Cape. The perfect gift for anytime of year. Just wonderful!!!

By Lynn from NC on 9/25/2014

I was very disappointed by this cape. For the price paid, it should have had a luxe appearance and touch. However, the fabric was felt-like and cheap in appearance. The closure, attractive in the photograph, would have been too much trouble to replicate every time I wore it. Finally, the cape was not a flattering length, the garment appeared short and puffy. I did like the color.

My wife loves it!!!! Very well made and wonderful material.

By Shopper from IL on 1/3/2013

My wife received the cape as a Christmas gift and was delighted with it. Being made in Ireland , especially not China was an extra bonus.

Do Not Buy The Irish Walking Cape!
By Cherie from IL on 12/11/2013

For 2 years I have contemplated buying this cape as a gift for my mother. I decided to get it for her as a Christmas present and based on the picture in the catalog I was very excited about the gift. I cannot fully express my disappointment in the quality of the cape when it arrived. It does not come close to what it appears to be as pictured-it looks like cheap polar fleece. Keep in mind this is a $250 item. Plus, it cost $18.95 in shipping out and $7.95 to return. I will NEVER buy anything from this company again.

Great Cape
By PaulaT from MD on 1/23/2013

I love this cape. It's long enough to rpovide a barrier against the wind. I wear jackets or suits underneath, and like its roominess and the fact that it's not TOO heavy. Comfortable and good loooking.

I think I'm going to like this cape!
By hanusa2 from VA on 4/3/2014

I love the color. I like the look when the scarf/hood is tied. I like the fact that it has a hood. It is not as warm as I thought, so will be for transitional seasons.

Irish Cape
By Darlene from PA on 3/13/2013

The fabric and color are as described. It is very warm if a sweater is worn underneath. I bought this as a quick cover-up and because coats with sleaves are difficult for me to put on.

By Moore from CA on 12/31/2012

Love the cape but expected the material to be a bit heavier with more body. Otherwise very happy with it. Good style and color.

Irish Walking Cape
By Iris from IN on 4/18/2013

I like this cape very much. It is made of a soft light-to-medium weight wool blend , with some cashmere, . The hood is adequate in size to put over your head, however I should point out that it is just big enough and not oversized. It is suitable for autumn and spring weather, plus could be used in winter along with a warm sweater underneath. I bought the black model, and it looks elegant for formal as well as more casual occasions.

Light and tight!
By World from CO on 4/13/2012

I've had this cape for several years now. It gets tons of complements. Yes it is very light weight for wool, but it's weave is very tight, so you stay warm on that spring day walk, fall outing, or summer evening. If it gets wrinkled, just throw it in the dryer on low for 5 minutes, and good as new! It even keeps me dry during a dash from the car to the store during a rain shower. My 25 year old daughter likes to wear it when she comes to visit. It's a class act!

lovely cape
By Bev from DE on 12/14/2012

I wanted to get away from the coat and this cape just seemed to call to me. I am so pleased it does wonders to hide the extra pounds and it looks so pretty. I get lots of complements.

By Val from CA on 11/8/2012

The walking Cape is just lovely. The material has a lovely drape to it and the cape is very generously sized! I can't wait for some nippy weather so that I can wear it!

Mom's Birthday Gift.
By Laura from UT on 12/24/2013

It arrived early, and it was something my mother has put on her wants list. I decided to get it for her. The worst part and it doesn't really matter, was that we had to steam the wrinkles out of it from shipping. She loves it. It is just what she wanted.

not as good.... quality
By Shopper from AB on 12/3/2013

Quality is low, and item is thinner that I thought

Not Made In Ireland
By Shopper from GA on 12/26/2012

Thought this was made in Ireland but tag on it suggests eastern Europe. Good quality but lighter weight than I thought it would be.

By C.J. from MN on 4/7/2014

I love the style,fabric and ease of slipping into it. One of my favorite outer wasps.

Pretty, but...
By Laura from TX on 3/25/2013

Pretty, but too much fabric with which to deal. Color not as expected. I can just see the wind blowing this cape every which way and me trying to control it. Much prefer the other cape I bought which was simpler in design and had a classic look and shape which made it more wearable.

sadly dissappointed
By Donna from OR on 12/29/2013

Eyed this cape for years finally got it as a Christmas present. Sorry to say the hood was cut so small it didn't cover my head and the arms were so short they didn't reach my wrists. I'm only 5'7' and weigh 130 lbs. Very very disappointed.

This is my second!
By Susan from IN on 8/6/2011

I've been wearing my black cape for four years now and it still looks like new. Now I'm ordering the claret one. It's warm enough for Indiana winters if you wear long sleeves underneath. Stylish, garners lots of compliments and questions about where it came from, and fits more than a size 20. Highly recommend!

Very nice
By M. from BC on 11/5/2012

Received this cape as a gift and am very happy with it. It is a little more light weight than expected, however will work wonderfully for spring / fall. Not quite warm enough for Canadian winters.

Warm and cozy
By Shopper on 12/14/2010

Its differt to look at and keeps warm in the winter

Wonderful cape
By Snow from IL on 12/30/2013

This is a delightful cape. It is soft, warm and very attractive. I purchased this one , in black, to replace a red one that I had for years. Works well in formal situations as well as with jeans. I strongly recommend it. It is in good taste and it is fun.

By Rochelle from ON on 11/22/2012

not very thick - was expecting a better quality cape
