First impressions were rather disappointing as it looked to be a very lightweight coat with no lining and I thought: “This will never keep me warm.” Wrong! I’ve now worn this coat in all sorts of weather and I’m delighted by its performance.

It is very light and comfortable to wear, but completely keeps the wind and weather out, far exceeding the performance you would expect from such a lightweight garment.

Clearly these New Zealanders know what they are doing when it comes to making warm clothing – and I’m a convert!
