... at about a third of the RRP it seemed like good value
on 26 November 2013
I thought I'd get one of these because at about a third of the RRP it seemed like good value.
It is well made, has draw strings to pull the waist in and keep the wind out. Good pockets and is somewhere between a thin layer fleece and something that you could wear on it's own (although closer to the thin end of the spectrum). I bought it to go under a wax jacket and it does that job well. It has good zips and zip liners to keep out the cold and even a cover for the zip itself when it is fully closed that stops it rubbing on your throat.
Why not 5 stars? Well I had thought that the Norwegian flag collar would be of a soft woollen or fleece matierial but it isn't. It's like a treated cotton cloth. Nothing wrong with that and I suspect that it will do a good job of repelling the rain and keeping me warm - just not what I'd expected!
