    Our reviewer loved this jacket and it soon became her go-to item of clothing to wear on the yard

    I have thoroughly enjoyed testing this jacket for the past seven months. It has steadily become one of my favorites and the most used out of all of my jackets.

    Upon receiving and inspecting the jacket, I was dubious as to whether the jacket would live up to its claims and keep me warm, however the 120 gram polyester insulated lining and Jersey lined pockets meant that it excelled at keeping me warm. The 100% polyester water repellent finish, sealed seams and fully detachable, peaked hood ensure that you are kept dry even in heavy rain.


    The colour (navy) is smart and stylish. I also like the discreet branding (metal badge on sleeve). The jacket length is ideal for riding and the high quality YKK® 2-way front zipper allows you to unzip front the top or bottom of the jacket at ease while mounted. The jacket also features an internal media pocket with a rubber outlet for headphones.

    I found that the sizing was accurate. I had chosen an XS and found it was comparative to a UK 8-10. The jacket has been designed to offer both a relaxed and tailored fit achievable by adjusting the waist cinch inside the jacket.

    It’s incredibly lightweight, comfortable to wear. I was thrilled to find the storm cuffs, a tighter lycra layer inside the sleeve cuffs that keeps out wind and rain For me this is a highly desirable feature. I feel that this jacket is a great all-rounder and wouldn’t look out of place either at a competition or everyday on the yard.

    It is machine washable which is a valuable feature for equestrian clothing.

    Finally, I would highly recommend this jacket, it’s smart, lightweight, warm, waterproof and comfortable. With the brands and jackets available on the market currently the product is good value for money, however the price would make this jacket less affordable for those with a smaller budget.

    After using the jacket I feel that the overall quality of the jacket is excellent and increasing the hood size would improve the performance of the jacket even further.
