This is a good jacket. Although it was bigger than I expected. I should have taken the marketing spiel with a pinch of salt. When it says "allows you to layer up for winter". I should have taken that as "you can wear 4 layers beneath this". Now I'm a 37inch chest, and bought the Medium, because that's what the description says to buy, but it made me look like I was wearing "my dad' clothes".
The problem with this jacket is the hidden hood which you can take out when it rains.. Hmmm.. It's a "waterproof jacket", I would only wear it when it's raining or forecast to rain. Why do you have to hide the hood? Design it with it out and add some padding in it to make it more comfortable.
My only problem with it was the fact that, when it was raining and I wore it I couldn't tighten the drawstring at the front of the hood because the left side was not attached to anything. (Assuming it to be broken). I contacted Amazon and a replacement was sent in quick time. However, the replacement had exactly the same problem... Was it the same jacket? I don't know.. Anyway, Spring is coming, and I had enough of packing and unpacking and taking it to drop off point etc, so I requested a refund. Amazon have been great throughout the entire process. Credit to them.
However, if you buy this jacket, first things first, pull the hood out to have a look to see if the drawstring is attached, otherwise, when it rains, and it's windy, you'll find yourself holding on to your hood,
