on 10 January 2015
I returned these items as I wanted a bit more protection than the armour which in these items, and also a better fit. But here’s my opinion for what it’s worth. Both items arrived very quickly after order. They appeared as described by the seller. The jacket was a perfect fit in the arm length, under arm and across the back (I’m 5’11” and slim – medium build). After that, the body was a bit too generous for me and when I used the Velcro adjustment straps on either side, I looked like a bag of spuds. If you have a beer belly or are a bit portly then this shouldn’t be an issue to you.
The pants, I measured my current Richa monsoon as shown on the size chart for the product and bought the 36” waist, as I use them over my work pants or a pair of jeans. The outer shell seemed find but the lining was too tight for me to wear anything under them. This may not be an issue with some, but unfortunately, the changing rooms at work and mixed and I wouldn’t want to get all the ladies hot under the collar at the start of the shift (or scare them to death at least).
The quality of the material seemed fine and the stitching etc was also fine. The Hi Viz is a bit bright but that’s what it’s for. If the fit had been better and he armour more in line with my current RST / Richa clothing then I would have kept them, but unfortunately they weren’t. The price is about right for the kit and if your shape differs from mine you should have no issues. All in all not bad for the price (if they fit). No problem with the returns either, although you have to pay the postage.
