Almost perfect Jack Wolfskin jacket
Reviewed by Dee in LA from Pasadena,California on Saturday, December 20, 2014
I bought this jacket for a trip to Europe. I've seen the Jack Wolfskin brand for sale in the UK. I thought the STP price was high but acceptable, and still much better than on any other website, especially ones in the UK. I used this jacket in the cold (for me) and wet weather in the UK and on the continent of Europe. It did really well to keep me warm and dry, although I was only in a light/medium rain and not a downpour. I particularly like the hood and its adjustability. The length is nice - to the bottom of my bum - but I'm only 5 foot 4. The arms of the jacket are really long - they cover my hands if I don't cinch them at the wrist - but I like that - no need for gloves! I would give it 5 stars except that the zipper is a bit fidgety - I have to play with it a bit to get it together. Glad it's two-way, but I think the zipper and pull could have been a bit thicker and sturdier. Also, the sizing seems odd - I ordered an XL for my size 12 or 14 body. The label reads the XL is a UK size 18/20. That was a bit of a shock! The XL does seem generous on my body, but I guess it's sized for layering underneath. I'm happy with this purchase, to get a brand I've had my eyes on for years, at a price I could afford.
