Toggi Covington Ladies’ Equestrian Gilet: ‘ideal for spring and autumn’ 9/10


Price as reviewed:


Official description

The Toggi Covington Ladies’ Equestrian Gilet is an uber-stylish gilet that will be an indispensable addition to your wardrobe. It has a padded body with stretch side panels for ease of movement and fit. Practical zip pockets and a water repellent finish protects the wearer against the elements while high gloss gold trims add a touch of glamour to this sleek, sporty style.

First impressions

I really like the style and shape of this gilet. I also liked the purple colour and I thought the orange features worked really well.

Overview of performance

This was a nice top layer to wear on an autumnal or spring day, but also worked well as an extra layer underneath on colder days.

Likes and dislikes

I loved the colour – purple is a favourite. This gilet is a very good choice for autumn and spring.


An ideal choice for slightly chillier days
