It’s a jacket for the British weather, despite its French heritage. Bit of a shower outside? Get yourself one of these, it should keep you dry. Looking out of the window, it would be perfect for right now, as sun and rain trade places on an almost daily basis.
The jacket is made by Armor Lux, a company with a strong heritage of making sea-worthy gear (and maker of some amazing Breton tops and t-shirts). With that in mind, its water-repelling qualities really shouldn’t be questioned.
Also, this is a jacket cut from a tough cotton canvas, able to keep out the elements effortlessly.
It looks good too, which is a key selling point, especially in the navy blue and Prussian blue, if you want something a little bolder. It has a relaxed fit, a large patch pocket on the front, an adjustable hood, ventilation holes under the arms, a quarter zip closure and a subtle patch logo on the hem. If you don’t like logos (like me) you will barely notice this one.
As I said, both are in the sales now with all sizes marked down from £129 to £89 if you are quick. A Jacket that will earn its keep for months and years to come.
