The jacket is well made and very equestrian appropriate, it serves its purpose very well.
Overview of performance
This jacket definitely serves its purpose to make you highly visible! It fits well in a sense that is more of a loose fit, which makes it comfortable and easy to move in. It works well in rainy and windy weather and it can be worn in most temperatures with or without a jumper. I mostly used it for hacking or walking horses in-hand down the road, but I you could use it for any type of walking or work on more exposed areas where visibility is crucial.
Tamsin’s likes and dislikes
I like that it’s not too thick and I can wear it even in warmer weather, but that it also works really well in rainy and windy weather. The zippers on the sides that make riding more comfortable are a great feature.
I would definitely recommend it because I think it is a good product for a reasonable price.
