Our reviewer found this a perfect mid-layer addition to her wardrobe and it kept her cosy on chilly mornings
I tested the Horseware Keeva Technical fleece in a size medium. This fitted jacket is made from an anti-pilling polyester material, which creates a super soft and cosy fleece. The jacket is windproof and very comfortable to wear, making it a must-have for around the yard.
This jacket features flattering embossed contrast side panels, which gives it an attractive, sporty-looking appearance. The jacket also has two practical and secure zipped front pockets, which are perfect for your phone, keys, or treats. These pockets are also well hidden along the lining of the embossed panels — so they don’t look unsightly. In addition to this, the jacket also has a contrast zip up the front and contrast cuff detailing, adding to its attractive appearance.
Aside from its attention to detail, my favourite thing about this fleece jacket is just how breathable and easy it is to ride in. Traditionally, I find wearing fleeces while riding extremely hot and sweaty, however this fabric wicks away any sweat and the embossed side panels are also ventilated, meaning that you do not overheat in the saddle.
This versatility makes it the perfect mid-layer garment or, on those slightly warmer days, it is perfectly adequate as your everyday yard jacket. I even find this jacket smart enough to wear over your competition shirt when warming up at an event, or to wear to the shops after you have been to the yard.
The only downfall of this jacket is that the fabric sometimes bunches up in areas, however, this is not a major point and does not affect the jacket’s performance.
Overall, this jacket is a really nice addition to any rider’s wardrobe
