Best thing: Great for Britain’s unpredictable summers.
Waterproof lightweight outer and cooling vents with waterproof zips make heatwaves bearable and let you stay dry when the heavens inevitably open.
If winter starts early there’s the thermal removable lining.
Worst thing: Label warns that under some EC Directive ‘This garment is not considered to be personal protective equipment,’ which always baffles me.
Why wear it then? Removable body armour at back, shoulders and elbows provides some reassurance.
Not warm enough for properly chilly weather – but you can’t have everything.
