So it may seem a bit strange reviewing a Jacket on a site all about Saber, but some fool has to walk him in all weather conditions. Having had a few different jackets for all weathers which didn’t deliver their promise of being waterproof and warm. I thought it may be a good idea to get a winter jacket that would. After much searching and orders sent back I settled on the Kronstadt James Jacket.
Kronstadt James Jacket First Impressions.
The jacket has some weight to it and the fit is as expected, meaning, I take a large size and the large size fit me as expected.
Kronstadt James Jacket In Use
The first time I wore this jacket was around 4.00 am on a February morning in a light shower, which soon turned into heavy rain. The Jacket rejected all the water and kept me very cosy and warm.
The hood is the right size and has a malleable stiffener around the circumference.
I could bend the hood into the right shape and pull it tight with the drawstring. The jacket has two zips one internal and one external and has press studs to cover the zip and keep the the weather out. The collar has two press studs also and stands up around the neck which also helps keep even the worst weather out. The bottom of the sleeves are elasticated and seal round the wrists very well.
It has two side flap pockets with press stud fasteners and also a zipped slanting pocket on the left chest. On the inside there is a pocket also with a press stud fastener.
I would certainly recommend this jacket for walking the dog in all weathers ( as you have to if you have an exercise crazy dog like Saber)
