Good jacket, but no draw cord
on 20 November 2013
The jacket is good value at £58 walnut colour. The quality seems very good.
But for me personally there's 1 big drawback - it hasn't got draw cord at the hem, so I could tighten it to prevent air escaping and getting in when it's cold. It's no use having good insulation when you've overdone with ventilation. People designing these jackets must be trained professionals with lots of experience but still no draw cord or or anything like that.
Also there are no internal pockets.
It would be nice if all these internet retailers, uploaded pictures of the item from every side, because buyers can't see them, can't try them on, touch them. You take a gamble when ordering online and then there are these surprises. If they took a picture of the inside of the jacket, I'd have seen that there's no draw cord and no internal pockets, I wouldn't have bothered ordering it.
Apart from that it's an excellent jacket, shame about the draw cord and internal pockets though.
Also it's thin and light, it's not at all like a thick down jacket.
