Updated! Good jacket but buy a larger size than you normally would
7 September 2019
This is a nice waterproof layer. We bought it to wear over a school blazer. It does it's job very well. We bought the dark blue jacket to match his blazer and it looks very smart. It also packs up into a very small bag that comes with the jacket and it fits nicely in his school bag. In terms of sizing it is smaller than usual. My son is a taller than average but very slim 11 years and 2 months old. I bought a 13 year old size and it fits him perfectly over his blazer. The sleeves are just right for him. The zip is good and the seams are all taped for better water resistance. It had kept him dry on his journey from the train station to school and back. Hood is a bit small and is just fitting.
Update 1: he's worn alot now and seems fine. it's a really small pouch when it's packed up and he really likes that. After its been used, we take it out to dry when he gets home. Of note although the description says 'padded'. It's not. It's just a thin waterproof layer. It will not keep you warm on its own.
I'll continue to update over the next few months on durability.
