Very well-made comfortable jacket, water and wind proof.
on 23 May 2014
This is a lightweight foldaway jacket that has been made to a far higher standard than many of a similar type. It has a sturdy high collar, with a fold-away hood that is generously sized.
It isn't the longest jacket I've owned, but at 5' 10'' I generally do find that most jackets are shorter on me than they would be on others. It covers my kidneys and doesn't expose my back, which is all that I ask for, generally.
The sizing is accurate in my view, but also generous enough to allow for a heavy jumper being worn underneath in autumn and winter, making it suitable for all but the coldest weather.
The mesh lining definitely helped keep me cool. I wore it on a bike ride and found that I was able to move easily and not get too heated. The colour described as 'Nutmeg' turned out to be the shade of brown that I would call 'mink', a practical, attractive mid-brown shade and certainly not unattractive.
I am really pleased with my purchase, particularly as I got this jacket at a great price and with excellent delivery times.
