So I bought the coat for weather exactly like we have seen for the last few weeks - c20 degrees C and some pretty heavy rain showers. It says it’s not waterproof so I don’t expect it to be. I’ve been caught out a few times in heavy showers (once in Waitrose car park and the other coming home from the pub - so it’s well tested!!) but so far the water has beaded and I haven’t got wet. I would say it’s exceeded expectations in that regard.
What I like most about this coat compared with say my Barbour or my old beghaus is that it has the feel of a cotton jacket. It feels breathable. It feels quite premium actually. It’s just comfortable to be in.
The hood is cavernous but adjustable and the pockets are easily accessible and well placed.
So I’m pleased with it. Certainly so far. And since water proofing is done with a block of wax and is “adjustable” to suit (I think it will take a bit of trial and error) but it should be easy to reproof to the level I like.
Used the jacket now for about a month including walking, camping and day to day.
This is not a wind blocker but that's ideal as it's the first walking jacket that actually doesn't result in me over heating beacue this thing breaths.
It's better than the Arc'teryx alpha Ar jacket and the OR hellium in terms of breathability. (Both are great jackets) that I have owned and used in the past.
Yes it's not completely water proof, although because of the g1000 fabric you can wax it quickly and easily to increase rain and wind protection and all you need is wax and a iron.
However I've used this in the UK in some heavy showers and it's kept me mostly dry without any extra wax, as we move into the autrum I've waxed the hood and top side of the arms for more protection and for that reason it's better then other jackets...
I don't need my armpits to be water proof, I need my shoulders to be water proof and it's easy to keep the best of both and increase or decrease the water proof to bethability ratio than any other jacket I've tried.
100% recommend this jacket.
Admittedly I've packed on a few lbs over the lockdown and winter so was cautious about new purchases which didn't help.
I've lost some of those lbs now and the jacket is still a good fit - length too and I'm looking forward to the spring and removing some layers also.
The quality of materials, zips, toggles, poppers are excellent; very much like my Paramo gear.
The material seems thin but this is not an issue as in a stiff cold breeze it's doing the trick of blocking the cold out.
Only one down side is the leather zip ends as they have an unfinished back the leather bits come off on the jacket which is a slight niggle...
Fit is good too, hood is large so another hoodie can be worn underneath.
I've used the recommended was block and it's easy to use and apply. Haven't worn out in the rain as yet but as this is the UK there'll be plenty of opportunities!!!
From reading other reviews I suspect reapplications of wax will be required but no worries it's all trial and error in the beginning.
Lastly to add it's a pretty cool jacket and is great around the town, trail or hills.
Will update again very soon when caught in the rain!!
The greatest thing about it is that its feel! It feels SO premium and good looking. Also it is SO light for everyday wearing. It breaths so nice too. After long walks on vacations i never feel sweaty. The pockets are very helpfull too as i traveled a lot with it.
Overall excellent product that feels premium and so durable!
Useful that it can unzip from the bottom for cycling if needed.
Plenty of different style pockets for safe-keeping of valuables like key fobs, keys, devices, and money.
I haven't been caught in a downpour yet, but I have the wax to hand to properly wax it, so I'm ready.
Note to purchasers when it comes to sizing I found the arms really good length but the hip was narrow and snug fit so go for a size up if you have any sort of belly to accommodate!
Really pleased. My last fjallraven lasted many years of good service and well worth the money.
