An excellent sailing jacket for a fraction of the cost of the more established brands. It stood up to 3 hours of heavy rain on a recent trip in the Solent without any leaks or discomfort. Recommended.
Bought this back in July as in impulse buy while in store to get body-boards on way to Anglesey with the boys, and I knew it would be rainy. I've been getting most of my kids' waterproofs from Decathlon's sailing section and been really impressed every time.
Tried size 'M' and was really impressed at the fit - nicely snug/athletic fit, good arm length, hood perfect size. The shape is spot-on and well tailored. Material is very high quality and I really like the red/dark orange hood with big reflective panels. The colour combination of grey/dark grey/red is lovely, it's really grown on me and feels really natural when out hiking. I've chucked my old MTB jacket and now take this on wet bike rides - easily as good as something twice the price. It has proper chunky zips none of that fine-toothed rubbish. Velcro fasteners on sleeves are just the right amount, as per storm flap. Only mistake is not reversing the velcro on the RHS sleeve so that it doesn't keep sticking to the RHS breast/waist opening. Really good pockets all round. Huge fleece lined collar means this is a propery cold weather waterproof, but still OK in summer if you're just wearing a t-shirt.
As far as value for money goes you will not get much better than this.
My only complaint and this is being picky is that some of the velcro get caught up on its self when not fully fastened.
Outside of this it is every bit as good if not better than some of the very expensive major brands I have had.
Sorry I did not buy one earlier! I could have saved a fortune!
