Nice coat with some poor design features
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 October 2020
It's a nice winter coat, warm and comfortable. It also looks good. I chose M for a 40 inch chest and the fit is reasonable, though probably a bit too snug if you're going to be wearing a jumper. But then, you probably won't need one. A bit too warm for all year round. The arm length is perfect on me.
There are a couple of niggles: The height of the top outside pockets requires you to be a contortionist in order to access them, though I doubt I'll need to use them much. A bigger niggle is the design of the hood. It's so big, they must have had Shrek in mind when they designed it. You can wear a bobble hat, or possibly a Bishop's mitre, under it. The hood draw strings are useless because there is no way to keep them tightened. It seems a strange oversight, considering they added little clamps to the midriff drawstrings, even though those are much less likely to be used. Finally, when the coat is zipped up all the way, it's too tight under the chin. A scarf will be much more comfortable.
It's almost an excellent coat, but the design flaws mean it's just a good one.
