A great outdoor jacket for rain protection. Every aspect of this jacket has been considered from a practical standpoint. Highly functional, light weight, and packs small. Great choice of fabric making a hard wearing garment that will serve well, time, and again!
Had to replace modern gortex jacket because the seam sealing was failing, so got one of these. Excellent fit, has two pockets but no fancy features, is in new condition, and works well. Very waterproof first time in rain, packs down small, and is a good length so can sit down and glass for game. Here in two days so very happy with the prompt service. Good all round!
Jacket in excellent condition; outer fabric excellent, no de-lamination, seam-seals in excellent condition, external DWR present.
A pocket, a pocket, my kingdom for a pocket. No pockets - not one, even the one that was there was cut away (goodness knows why...)
OMG - what is that smell??? The jacket as arrived was unwearable due to the smell. Professional laundering managed to reduce the smell by half, the rest tackled with some febreeze. Now somewhat wearable, maybe prolonged airing will help.
Super fast overnight delivery from Christchurch to rural Waikato. The coat is in near-mint condition, considering it's army surplus. There was only some grass and lint on the velcro which I soon picked off. It fits well, with room underneath to allow for overalls and vests etc
The coat passed the shower test with flying colours - no leaks anywhere. I've since treated it to Nikwax Tech Wash and Nikwax Wash-In to really beef up the water-proofing.
I wasn't expecting it to have any pockets so I was rapped to find two chest pockets, and then a third chest pocket on the inside of the storm flap. I love the high collar that wraps around the neck.
Awesome piece of kit. Ideal for the farm and at a fraction of the cost you'd pay for branded commercial coats at Farmlands etc. Grab one while you can.
NB: I recommend asking ahead for a coat with pockets if you're wanting pockets, otherwise it could be a lucky dip as to whether you're sent a pocket coat or a non-pocket coat. So just keep that in mind when ordering. But apart from that, these coats rock.
1st one had chest pockets, waist draw string, elasticated internal cuffs and one inside pocket with a “normal” size hood, 3/4 length zip.
2nd one has no pockets, draw string on hem, Velcro cuffs, and the internal pocket has been cut away, “huge” hood, picking that’s for going over a helmet. Full length zip
Both are fantastic raincoats, but if you like pockets for gloves are cell phone, that second one I received will drive you insane. Consider these as a outer shell and buy a size up so you can ware something with pockets underneath.
Definitely could benefit from under arm vents, I wonder if the British army will get that right in newer versions
Still amazing value for money, a branded one would be three times the price in NZ a Swazi maybe four times.
