Quality jacket, great colour
on 29 September 2013
I've bought this to put away for Christmas for my 15 year old son.
Being red it's perfect for Christmas plus he's a Liverpool fan so it'll come in handy for those chilly night matches. Other teams that play in red are available!
I would call this a micro fleece. It's quite lightweight but still very effective. It's not a fleece coat but a jacket. Perfect for hiking/walking on a chilly autumn day. No good if it's teaming with rain though!
It's a HellyHanson which is a great brand and it is a very well made jacket. It's a polartec fleece which means it has lofted fibres inside it that trap air keeping you warm and will dry out quickly when wet.
You should not use fabric conditioner when washing this or it will reduce its ability to trap heat. Just wash it at 40° spin it and let it air dry.
The zip is spot on here and runs up/down perfectly, no snags. It has two pockets with no fastening, just to slip your hands into. The hood covers the head well and has no fastener either but is elasticated as are the cuffs.
Great micro fleece jacket, stylish and a nice fit. A quality item that should last.
