3.0 out of 5 stars
Strictly average, 19 April 2013
I feel the 5 star rating this item has on here is undeserved it is no more than average in terms of anything. The main thing it has going for it is the logo on the chest and the one on the back.
Lets look at a couple of in my opinion cons of this jacket.
1. elasticated cuffs: this is my biggest gripe, I find a lot of water gathers here and eventually starts seeping into the sleeve. So I find I am reproofing an awful lot more than I would be with a velcro cuff, where the water won't be able to sit as easy.
2. the hood A big weakness is if it's rainy and windy the adjuster for the hood sit naturally just inside the hood meaning it is a real hassle to adjust the fit whilst raining. you can pull the adjuster out but it will regress back to where it naturally belongs in a few minutes of use.
Overall a good jacket if Looking cool is important, but there are alternatives out there which look just as cool if not cooler which are also more practical.
