Measuring tips

Take your actual body measurements as they are more accurate than measuring over your clothes or shoes.

Collar: measure around the base of the neck where the collar sits.

Chest: measure the chest at the fullest part, placing the tape close up under the arms.

Waist: measure the natural waistline.

Jacket Length: measure from the centre back of your neck to your hemline. Then length measurement will vary depending on the style.

Great Jacket, great value

Great product. The jacket is light but warm and finished to a high quality. Fit is true to size, I ordered a size 10 (am a 8-10 normally) and have plenty of room to get base layers and fleece underneath without it feeling too snug!

Is good value at the price for a well finished high quality product, produced ethically by a UK company.
