    Tester’s comments

    “Having owned several Kyra K jackets during the past few years and been impressed by their durability , I wasn’t expecting many surprises with the new Edinburg Tone in Tone jacket

    “However, this classic design has been brought bang up to date with improved styling and fit.

    “With the high quality Kyra K range, you expect excellence and style, but this easy-to-wear jacket goes one step further by offering superb comfort both while riding and working around theyard.

    “I tested the jacket both in sub zero temperatures and driving rain with only a light layer underneath, but never felt frozen or wet.

    “Although the fabric feels lightweight (even after heavy rain), it’s also tough enough to stand up to being chewed by over-friendly equines in search of pocket treats.

    “After several months wear, there are still no signs of tears or broken zips or studs, which goes to prove that although you might pay a bit extra for a Kyra K design, they are built to last. . . beautifully.”
