I thought this looked a good quality jacket but. It is way too tight and i didnt like the girly colour.
I am ( 35 inch bust, 29inch waist 38 hips) and normally a size 10 or 12 so i ordered both. The 10 was impossible and the 12 looked ok ( and felt just about ok) over a long sleeve thermal top and a mid layer fleece BUT it felt very tight and uncomfortable in the armpit area so i sent it back. I concluded that the v fitted style and girliness means this is designed more for the high street than for real outdoor use ( hiking etc)
Also what looked like a nice olive green online turned out to be a pearlescent/ metallic green - i felt like a bottle of nail varnish in it ( all a matter of taste but way too girly for me)
If you do order i would recommend going up AT LEAST one size and possibly two unless you just want to wear it over a silky blouse.
Service from the supplier- re deliveries was very good and very swift
Womens Aktiv Hooded Down Jacket (Petrol/Arctic Blue)
I bought this jacket for my husband for his birthday as a surprise, he was over the moon with it and can’t wait for winter to come to
Wear it. Thanks
This is a great Jacket for cold dry days or as a mid-layer with a shell and I love the bright colours (bought the green) My only gripe is the cut, which pinches at the sides if wearing a chunky jumper underneath, it's more of a woman's cut in its shape. I'm a 42" chest 32" waist,, suppose I'm a V shape? and not carrying extra weight. It fits fine on the chest and waist it's just around the sides it becomes tight and pinches with a jumper. I bought large, which is my standard size but XL would probably have been a better choice.
