Official description

The Premier Equine Carmen Riding Gilet is a quintessentially desirable gilet that has been cut to provide a flattering silhouette and has superior lightweight and breathable properties. It is an ideal layer for early morning training sessions, cooler evenings at the yard and also for day-to-day wear.

First impressions

This gilet looked very smart and I really like how well it fitted. I was also a fan of the colour and the embroidery.

Overview of performance

I found the Carmen gilet very comfortable to wear both on and off the horse and kept me very warm. I was also a fan of very useful zipped pockets, which kept my essentials securely stowed while I was busy around the yard and while riding.

Likes and dislikes

I really like how well this gilet fits, plus how smart and fashionable it is. There is nothing I dislike about it. I would definitely recommend it to others.

Verdict

This gilet is good value, while being smart and fashionable. A great choice!
