I only had this jacket for a few days, and nine out of ten, the pocket zip catches the soft inner lining (and yes, takes a while to dislodge the lining caught by the zip). If the lining is stitched or glued around the pocket edges, then this problem would be gone, and it's disappointing that such premium quality jacket fails on such minor quality control. It is possible that the zip mechanism could eventually fail - unless some DIY job is called into action, such as gluing but again there may be a worry about warranty issues??
Great quality with a minor niggle with regard to the pocket zips, and hope the manufacturer takes note of such feedback as part of improving quality control.
I have found it to be completely waterproof, having spent two days in very bad rain, and outdoors for 7 hours a day in it, I found the only place that got damp was at the cuffs as water started to travel up my sleeve it was that wet.
It is a short jacket, but I prefer that style, and it is comfortable even with heavy fleece layers underneath. I found it lightweight (which I wanted) and very comfortable to wear. I would have no hesitation in recommending this jacket for similar activities and will definitely buy again should I need to .
One of the reviewers said he had worn his practically everyday for 12 years and it finally needed replacement. That is some high praise.
The recent downpour in London really made me appreciate the quality and also annoyed me on how unprepared I've been all these years. I now need to buy some really good shoes and I'll be ready for a torrential downpour.
The amount you pay is an investment not an expense. So invest wisely.
Theres no inside pocket and the two exterior pockets are quite shallow.
The cuffs are very low rent looking.
the logos look like transfers rather than the nice embroidered style of the old jacket
Doesnt quite hang right when open - the collars sit very proud and if you push them down , they flair like a 70s dinner jacket
The loop at the back is attached to the flimsy lining mesh which feels like it may cause problems later.
-edit - used it for a few months now and the pocket and main zips keep snagging the cheap net lining. This is pretty annoying. Deducted one star.
- edit - take one more star off - the mesh lining of the pockets keeps getting hooking onto keyrings which are a complete pain to remove.Try standing at your front door in the drizzle trying to work out how to unhook your house keys from the lining.
On the positive side, the simple design means its fairly smart
Its nicely waterproof - admire the droplets that sit on top of it when you get out of the rain.
So a good simple waterproof jacket. If you pay over £50 I think you'll be disappointed as it doesnt feel premium in any way. If you pay less and expect a simple waterproof shell that looks fairly smart you'll be quite happy.
The waterproofing on these 'newer' versions of the jacket is called AQ2. This is apparently better than the older Aquafoil waterproofing (which in itself was fine)that was used on earlier generations of the jacket.
Remember to be careful when washing your jacket, as you must use the specialist liquid avalible in camping shops, plus a spray to re-waterproof.
Note also, as some other reviewers' have said, this is a 'jacket' and not a thick coat. It looks smart, but in the colder days you will need layers on underneath.
Overall, a great buy.
