Well finished classic jacket, top quality. Supplier can suggest the correct size if you are confused!
I Iooked at a size chart and bought a 'large' as it was an inch or so below my usual size. Military 1st provides a return label- which was needed as 'large' was pretty huge on a 6ft / 44" chest...and hanging way off my shoulders. Just received a medium, which is a stylish close fit; with the important proviso that in the case of this jacket, the construction means "stylish close fit - but you can still move comfortably", as the swing back allows your shoulders to move fully, you can lift your arms, reach forward, without the jacket ending up round your ears.
Other good features are, zip is short- means you can sit down, ride a bike, without the jacket riding up. I can get my hands into the chest pockets to find small items. Snaps are good quality, (I tried on an Alpha, and two of them had missing snaps where they had pulled off).
With the liner fitted, it is a bit tighter. I personally don't like padded arms in a jacket anyway so won't be likely to use it much- but the jacket is
comfortable with a fleece gilet underneath for winter. It's pretty cozy anyway as it's already lined, and it's windproof. The hood is only the same material as the lining, so it won't even be showerproof, but that's the same as the over £100 Alpha version... why did they bother?
get a hat!
