done a review on this jacket a few weeks after purchasing it and at time was doing ok keeping rain out ,but was bad for making you sweat !after washing the jacket a couple of times and despite re-waterproofing water even the smallest amount was able to seep right through to inside,had to send back to amazon as not happy have had goretex things before and they never let water through.

A husbands review-At 37 inch chest the medium is a good fit.The "longer" design is a good length and I am pleased that I did not go for the standard length as I am sure it would have been too short, the sleeves are long so do not ride up the arms during activity.I would advise any buyer to try this coat on in a shop before ordering, without having done this I might have wrongly ordered the small.The blue is a nice colour and came with a grey inner fleece which suited the blue outer. The fleece had a lining inside the sleeves this prevented seperation of the inner and outer when removing coat (the arms slide out of the sleeves easily).The finish on both garments is very good. In the cold of winter the coat was nice and warm and now in the spring/early summer the outer coat is light to carry or pack in a bag, it protects from a cool wind or sudden rain.The zipped chest pocket is large enough to carry a map and can be accessed without unzipping the coat. The coat is smart enough to wear for everyday activities such as shopping or popping down the pub. In conclusion I am very pleased with coat and consider it good value at the price offered.

I was looking for a jacket in preparation for a trip to Scotland early next year. When I saw this jacket I knew I was going to buy quality and was not dissapointed. The jackect is very warm, but as it is a 3 in1 type you can split them up providing the right jacket for the prevailing conditions. A great buy.

I work at residential centres and need to be outdoors a lot, for long periods and whatever the weather throws at me. I guess I haven't had the worst of the winter weather yet but this coat has kept the wind out, kept me dry and the ability to remove the fleece makes it the only coat I need to pack. This is a great coat for my job, I have found that I get quite a good sweat on inside of it if I'm being active - jogging, building etc. which I have seen some people blame on the lack of breathability. I reckon it's very snug, warm, keeps the rain out and the funk in. Just take the fleece off!!!

Great coat at this price.

Ordered both Cornice (long) and Arctic Gemini to wear over a suit. Both designs are very similar so returned the Cornice because if I'd ordered the removable fleece separately, it would have worked out more expensive. Arctic Gemini is shorter in length but suited my husband who's not very tall. In fact, fitted son-in-law who's 5'11'' so he nabbed it straight away and I had to order another one for my husband. Both very pleased with my selection.

If you are looking for a jacket to wear over a suit, this one or the Cornice fits the bill perfectly. My husband has taken the fleece (not the outer jacket) with him to Italy as the evenings there are still a little nippy. He has been wearing just the outer jacket over his suit in the UK, and is happy that he doesn't need to carry an umbrella, which he frequently loses.

Perfect product for the unpredictable weather.
Currently I tend to wear it when I walk to my work as it is light without the detachable fleece( if it is windy).Comfortable to wear &settles nicely over the body. I haven't tried it on the rain so far and I am awaiting to test it for the winter also.But I am optimistic that it will prove to be worth for the price.I used to be a Helly -Hensen fan but lately I was not happy with the zips in their jacket and hesitated when my wife persuaded to go for this.So far no regrets.
I will write about it's performance in the winter.
Unfortunately it did not hold it's quality for longer-In Berghaus brand also the zip failed to work properly hence I had to return it to the seller(Amazon was amazing in this area in arranging for a refund))Even now I miss it because,apart from the problem with zip,it was a good quality product-It is sad I had to return it .

Bought this for my father after his old coat died. I knew Berghaus were a recognised quality brand and so didn't mind paying extra. I have tried the coat on and being 6'4 was expecting the "longer" fitting to fit me better than my 6' dad... it didn't. It is longer than 90% of coats I have tried on, but not that much longer in my opinion. Maybe two inches?

Don't get me wrong, it comes below my waist but doesn't quite cover all my bum. The arms fit me better than any coat I have tried, but my dad's coat is at least a size bigger than I need (maybe two) and that might help cover my orangutan-like arms, one in my size might not fit so well... but I am willing to try in the new year as I am impressed by the quality of my dad's.

The two pockets waist pockets are deep and the chest one is really big (it is supposed to be capable to hold a map). The fleece is nice and has two zip pockets and two interior waist pockets too. The outer shell is very impressive, often 2 in 1 jackets have a thin outer shell, but this seems quite thick and will no doubt be very waterproof due to it being goretex.

Excellent jacket, but longer fit to me should be LONGER.

Bought one in my size (this time a XXL) and it does fit me nicely still. It is longer than my other coats, but shorter than my old extra tall coat from a specialist shop. However, for me, this coat is ideal and even the fleece inner fits me nicely which is rare! If you're over 6'4 you might need to try specialist online shops such as Walktall (excellent shop btw) who offer extra tall Colombia coats. Banks is another good shop for big/tall people, good quality but lacking some big brand names due to sizing issues.

The gore tex performance shell sheds rain very effectively, the jacket has a casual, comfortable fit, and the detachable fleece liner is warm and comfortable. Adjustments in the waist and hem effectively seal the jacket in cold windy conditions and the hood also adjusts to fit around the face. Zips run smoothly and appear to be durable. It can be difficult to seal the draft flap with the press studs especially when cold or wearing gloves, similarly the tabs on the front pockets are difficult to locate in cold and wet conditions. The outer shell does breathe but is not suitable to high exertion activities, and there is no capacity to vent the jacket when over heating, i.e. pit zips. Overall a very good jacket for my purposes ( walking, commuting, and gardening)

A very versatile piece of kit with the zip in and zip out fleece liner.
(It's relativelyquick to get the fleece out but a bit slower to put back.

The jacket feels like it will really do the job and is quite smart and not at all bulky feeling.

A good purchase.

So pleased ordered this garment before all this freezing cold weather descended on UK, lasting weeks on end.
Already had berghaus boots and fleece so decided to buy this jacket as was on sale. Strongly suggest you order
size larger than normal, as original fleece I had just about fitted when ordering my normal size. Does come with
an inner fleece fitted, lots of pockets to keep maps, doggie treats, leads, gloves etc.
