I already have a number of down winter jackets from top end companies but wanted one which was waterproof so I didn't need to take an additional layer. The quality of build and design is as good as any jacket 2-3x the price. Very warm on its own and very waterproof. Still beading after an hour of standing watching kids football. Sizing is very large so for the UK you could go a size smaller as it is unlikely you would need additional down layers. Not really suitable for activity as it is very warm and heavy but perfect for watching sports or heading out for the evening. Been comparing this with NF, ME, MH and Canada Goose offerings and is equally as good for fraction of the price. I feel very snug and smug when wearing this. People get very envious.
Warmth, waterproof, fit and style
none so far
I bought this for my partners birthday. Did a lot of research and chose this because of the fact it was down filled and waterproof. It was a immediate success for the inclement Scottish winter weather, kept him very warm and kept the rain out whilst looking very stylish. After wearing it or a week in Scotland it was then taken on a ski holiday in Switzerland and was actually fount to be too warm. This made him very damp with sweat which meant he was cold when we stopped for coffee/lunch till he dried out.
Looked good and was very warm
Too warm for a skiing holiday in Feb.
Inspiring horizon !!!!!
I live in Calgary it is often below -20 and some times - 30. Though I have never hung about in -30 temperatures This Jacket has kept me toasty all the time in Canada so far. It was my first winter wearing it. and I only used it for three months. Soi I cant tell you how it will be over a long time. The problem is the zips are have not broken but the fabric tabs are weak and break off quickly. The zips with the crap tabs are already fiddly when wearing gloves so without tabs its a real problem, as removing gloves is agony in these temperatures. The problem is easy to sort. other improvements would be a all the pockets should zip, and a snow skirt. But it really if a great JACKET all the same.
Warm and well built
The zips are not robust enough or large enough to
