So, no surprises here then!
Having trawled through the good and the not so good reviews for this smock, I decided to buy any way.
The price is good so it wouldn't be the end of the world if it wasn't quite right.
I bought the white smock in Medium. I'm a size 10 woman and like things roomy. It is. But that's fine. I could have maybe gone for the Small but it's no great shakes. It's made of a tough, good quality canvas. Thick and unlined. Lots of Velcro. It's basic but it looks great. It is probably shower proof but it doesn't profess to be anything it's not. No nonsense. Decent quality. Reasonably priced. What's not to like!
However, even though I've only tried it on once there are things that are immediately annoying.
The arms are fine and correct length for me (59cm arm pit to wrist)
The placement of the velcro is a joke and there is no way that I can tighten the cuffs without having wrists the size of popeye's forarms (which I don't)!
The length of the velcro on the cuffs is also way too short, further limiting the range of adjustment.
Therefore cuff adjustment is useless.
The side pockets:
The flaps that 'cover' the side pockets are on the small size and don't have any velcro or press studs.
The head opening:
The velcro leading from the chest to the throat is good enough and quite a good fit up to the throat and under the chin.
The hood is fine and reasonably comfy with just about the right amount of room and could acommodate a woolly hat without any problems.
When synched up, the hood sits well on head with no sign of it flooping down over your eyes.
For me, the length at the rear needs to be quite a bit longer - perhaps as much as 6 inches longer. It currenly doesn't even cover my bum when standing.
I'm 6ft, 43 inch chest.
I purchased a size XXL so I could wear layers underneath. For this purpose the size is good.
Overall this could be a great smock with just a little more effort and attention to detail mainly to the cuffs and length at the back.
I was expecting it to be a little thicker and more 'canvas like' but it reminds me of the same fabric used for cover alls that a garage mechanic would wear....so a bit disappointed about that.
I gave 2 complete wash cycles and it's a lot softer. Stitching and overall quality is good and seems robust enough. Have been thinking about returning it but having washed it now I guess I own it now.
I do AirRifle target shooting...hunter field class so it involves walking through the bushes and forest and going prone for certain targets so I am sure it's roomy enough and tough enough as an outer layer at least that can get scuffed...and get some character to it.
The front roo pouch is perfect for carrying scorecards and such. On the whole....i think it will be ok as an outer layer but it will not keep you warm on a winter's day if you are only relying on a couple of layers underneath . Definitely not water resistant.
