Good comfortable fit with good arm length, which is a bonus for tall people. The brown colour is good for country pursuits as not everyone is a fan of garish shades.

Waterproofing and breathability are excellent it has kept my dry through many heavy downpours. Craghopper jacketThe plethora of pockets (there are 14) is a great feature and the large inside pocket is designed to take a full sized OS map, but I found it will also nicely accommodate a 7” kindle Fire or an ipad mini.

The draw-cord bottom is a good feature and can be pulled tight to stop the wind blowing underneath. Although it is designed as a field jacket the addition of expandable side vents would turn it into a fantastic riding jacket for long winter and spring hacks, as it stands it is perfect for visiting a show or a competition. It’s much too nice to muck out in though.

Overall it is an excellent outdoor jacket, and my first choice for a long walk. I would definatly consider the brand again.

Verdict

A great jacket with loads of pockets
