Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 May 2018
I paid £40 for this jacket, and ordered it in black in a medium size. Bought it for hiking in Scotland, as a last minute replacement for a lost jacket.

Positives: it is warm and waterproof. Certainly fit for purpose, and has stood up well to daily usage for 6 weeks of walking in all types of weather.

Negatives:
1) It is cheaply made. Made in China (demonstrated by the confusing sizing labels all over it and its bag, and a quite hilariously translated label stitched to the inside). Stitching on the velcro is poor. The zips frequently get stuck and feel quite flimsy (this has led to me not being able to get my key out of my pocket on one occasion, leaving me outside in the rain until I could get the darn zip down). Moreover the "fleece" lining is cheap and plastic; it smells peculiar, and looks a little bit like loft insulation.

2) It is not breathable. At all. The arms, especially, will end up saturated with sweat, not dissimilar to that which you may find on the inside of rubber gloves after extended usage.

3) The sizing is weird. As said, I ordered a medium, and was worried it would fit too small. As it transpires it is big but short around the body. I am tall and relatively thin (6ft and 38 inch chest), but usually don't have this issue to this extent. The image here makes it appear as if it is cut quite well, but I suppose this is my fault for assuming images online are representative of real life!

Overall: 2.5 (generous 3) out of 5 stars for this one. If I hadn't bought it last minute, I would have been more annoyed. As ever, be wary of sizing and quality variation when buying clothes on the web!!
