Tester’s Comments

“I really like this waistcoat,” said Emma Thomas. “It is extremely flattering and comfortable. I wore it while working on the yard as well as riding. It allowed me complete freedom of movement and didn’t restrict me at all.”

“I particular liked the rear riding vents, which allowed me to wear it over my show jacket at a competition. Several people commented on how nice it was and I would definitely buy another one.”

“I have washed it several times and it still looks like new, the colour hasn’t faded and it has retained its shape.

“This waistcoat offers excellent value for money, my only criticism is that the zip can be a bit tricky to do up.”
