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 didn’t have high expectations for this jacket. I ordered a M in charcoal. I’m a UK size 16 and rather large chested and the sizing is perfect. I love the longer length as it covers my bum. It’s got two generous sized pockets and a the hood has toggle adjustment which was useful in the recent windy weather. It has been perfect for my very brisk walks around the park and looks very smart - I have received many compliments. I’m a very happy customer!
I didn't fully understand what a bonded fleece is - and it is not a fleece! The material is smooth, polyester-y and the fit is big. I am a 12-14 and the Medium is on the loose side although handy for the winter to allow the wearing of other garments underneath. The advantage of the smooth finish is that light rain beads off the garment - certainly not waterproof but delays the time when you actually feel wet. I do like the way it covers the bottom at the back - that is the best bit of the design. I am sure I will wear it a lot but it wasn't the nice tailored-look fit I had hoped for as per the picture. Another brilliant feature to mention is the lovely deep, zipped pockets - no chance of losing stuff out of them as I have with less well-made similar garments. The sleeves are a bit too long for me but they cover my hands on cold mornings and can easily fold back if needed. All-in-all, a very good, but roomy, buy!
Very quick delivery. On whole am pleased with my purchase. I really like the colour. Fits body well though sleeves about 2" too long, but that's ok, just turned them up and looks like nice black cuffs. I like the length of it. The hood is very big, don't think I can do much about that. Deducted a star for that cos I really wanted a hooded jacket. I did read previous reviews before I made my purchase that did say the jacket made 'big' but on whole am happy with jacket I bought 14/16 (large).
I liked the long arm length as I'm 5'10. However it is really baggy in the torso. I was expecting a more streamlined look, but instead it's a lot wider than I had hoped. I purchased the one with a tag Large.
I adore this Amazon Essentials jacket! It fits well (a bit overlarge, but I prefer it this way), and has a flattering curvy hemline. I keep hoping Amazon will make more of these so I can buy more in other colours. The jacket is the perfect weight for cool spring days or chilly summer evenings.
Perfect indoors and outdoors! Love the longer length which reaches down to mid-thigh (I'm 5'7 and size 10-12), the material is much more durable and thicker than other cheaper hoodies out there, but the quality is definitely worth the price. The hood really impressed me too as it's not slouchy and of generous size (bonus: it's awesome to take naps in, with hood on!!!) My favourite hoodie ever.
I’m probably somewhere between a uk 14-16 and I got the M/L and it’s perfect. I could have got the smaller size which would have been snug if you are looking for a tighter fit. It’s long enough at the back and front which I really like. I didn’t find the sleeves too long. The only improvement I could suggest is a thumb hole on the sleeve but otherwise I’m really happy with it.
