This item is well made, and the outer pockets have openings well covered. The hood is spacious enough to cover eye protection without any drips. The neck protector is strong enough to stand up well. The garment is nicely snug, and just about wide enough to cover a bum bag, The arms can be efficiently sealed. It appears to be sufficiently waterproof, and drops of water form on the jacket as opposed to being absorbed.
The picture of the jacket looks wierd to me - incorrectly implying that the sleeve of the jacket below the elbow is different to that higher up. But that's probably just me being pedantic.
However, the pockets are very disappointing. They are all made of a seemingly flimsy inner material, and it looks like a bunch of keys would trash them. The two small upper pockets are seemingly of different sizes: for example, a passport would only fit into one of them. The two lower ones are also not very roomy. A bobble hat and a pair of gloves was too large a volume.The angle of these lower pockets are such that you need a dextrious approach. The inner phone pocket is too shallow: my mobile would only be emplaced vertically, and when it slid to the horizontal nearly came out (the single press-stud placement is just in the wrong place).
When I used the size guide, it suggested an eXtra Large size was apt. I ignored this and went for 2XL. This was far too short. It would not even cover my standard length size fleece, not mentioning the entrace to my trouser pockets. I would have preferred another 5cm length at least so the rain drops coming off the jacket would not get into my trouser pockets.
So I suggest thinking carefully about whether or not the length of the jacket is suitable and the smallness of the pockets are factors in purchasing this waterproof and windproof item. .Regretably, despite the quality of the garment, pockets/length are probably a show-stopper for this reviewer.
Had to double check technical attributes of this coat a year or so after buying as I'd forgotten that I'd bought it specifically as a warmer waterproof coat. I'd started to just see it as a smart shower proof coat to go to the pub in as it looks so good on. Suits a slimmer build, arms slightly longer than I like,(but then I've got quite short arms). Still looks as good as new, had over 2 years.
It’s excellent jacket
What a great looking and fitting jacket! So nice to have a well-fitted, smart looking coat with a membrane rather than simply a DWR coating. This is relatively slim fitting and reasonably short in the body with good arm length. Perfect for slightly smarter occasions as well as in the hills/on the beach. Buy it!
looks great. very warm. highly recommended!!
Little long in the arm, but still a nice warm jacket for when winter comes.
The coat was is warm and stylish.
Can't comment on durability as I've only had it for a month, but it's been wonderful so far and people commented on how good it looks. The only problem I'd point out is the pockets: they are not so big and there aren't so many of them!
