Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 November 2018
I bought this jacket for a trip to Iceland (the country, not the shop!) and was fairly impressed considering the price.

TLDR - It’s very warm, very waterproof, but you’ll get very sweaty elbows!

The long version- the low price and its dubious origins (badly translated English labels have been sewn over the original Chinese) didn’t quite inspire confidence, but I ordered anyway and the actual product feels great when it arrives. It’s heavy without being too bulky, looks the business with its aggressive yellow logos and grey panel, and feels very comfortable. The torso and hood are faux fur lined, which makes it extremely warm and comfy to wear.

After wearing it for a few days (and long nights!) in Iceland I can attest to the following:

It’s definitely waterproof. I didn’t get wet despite the inclement weather (snow, sleet etc). However the chest pocket isn’t entirely waterproof and my phone got slightly damp on one of the worst days.

It’s definitely warm. Seriously, I got almost too hot with a thermal layer, shirt and a fleece! The fluffy fur lining really helps. I actually started wearing it with bare sleeves underneath... which revealed the one issue with this product.

The sleeves are absolutely not breathable and feel rubberised, meaning that your arms and elbows will become very sweaty after exertion and this moisture persists. I literally had to turn the sleeves inside out over lunch breaks to get the sweat to evaporate! This can be averted by wearing anything with long sleeves or a wicking/thermal long sleeve base layer, but it really does put the lie to the jacket’s ‘breathable’ claim.

Still, for what I paid, I’m not complaining. Decent bit of kit and one I’ll continue to use.
