Overall this is really well made however if you’re on the shorter side you might find that the collar stands up too high under the chin - and as it’s quite firm will then rub rather than fold down.
I bought this coat for my as a birthday present for use on a personal challenge The Two Moors Way. It was perfect for her adventure covering 117 miles over 4 days, the flexibility of choices proving ideal when out for several hours covering different terrains. Perfect for an off road adventure.
I must admit to being sceptical if the price tag on this jacket was worth it - it was more expensive than I budgeted for. I've tested it on a few occasions now, and it keeps me dry during heavy downpours and I'm pleased I invested in it! I'm now the proud owner of a few tribe products and I love them all!
The lightweight and versatility of this jacket make it one of my most useful pieces of kit. The gilet section fits beautifully due to the stretch panel. The jacket section can be left loose for ventilation or tightened to fit. There is no annoying rustling while running and the pockets are big enough to be useful.
It's been too warm and dry to use this jacket properly. From the one use so far, the fit is spot on and it didn't ride up or move around. The pockets are roomy enough to fit the bolero part in if necessary and it's very lightweight. It's looking like a very worthwhile investment.
