    Very nice and warm swanni. Good looking coat. Euro (reverse) zipper. Not lined so probably want to wear long sleeve beneath, big enough to layer below. Personally I don't like chest logos so this is the only con for me.
    • Best Uses: Going Out, Outdoor Activities
    • Cons: Chest logo

    This is a fine product. It is very warm. I find it useful to throw on over a shirt in freezing weather. If you buy it in your size it will fit very loosely suitable to layer over other clothes. If you want it to fit like a sweater I suggest buying a size smaller.

    The tailoring is sturdy with butt seams that are whelp stitched in the inside. The pockets and edges are reinforced on the inside. There is a zippered slash pocket on either side and they are deep so you can put things down in them. It zips up the front all the way into a turtle neck if you want or you can wear it open at the neck. The wool is heavy and a very nice grade if not somewhat itchy but it is not meant to be worn next to the skin. It looks very sporty and is great for walks or just going out

    Had a cotton Oxford shirt and this jacket on in the mountains today, at 15 degrees F with a brisk wind, elevation 9,500 ft. Had jeans, good boots and socks and wooley hat. Had a very warm core. The jacket kept the chillwind out. Big pockets carry all your stuff, and your hands.
    I had this jacket stolen from a hotel in early December so am delighted to find a replacement for the winter.

    This is a classy jacket. It is warm, not scratchy, and I have room to have a layer under this jacket, if desired. Temps at Christmas were below freezing and I was very comfortable with just a tee shirt underneath.

    A very nice jacket at a terrific price - relative to the other similar, premium wool jackets. Good quality wool in a weight that will necessitate some layering in the coldest of winter, but is very comfortable and not bulky. I really enjoy this jacket so far and recommend it highly.

    Classic Swanndri - not as nice (soft) as the older made in NZ stuff. But still a great product.
