To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased a Large as a natural medium based on other reviews and so I can layer up underneath. This was the right choice... 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!!
