Three easy steps to ordering the right size: ⊙ With so many different brands from all over the world available on the high street and online, the only way to get your size right the first time round is to compare a garment you own and which fits you well with one of our garments. STEP 1: ⊙ You will need a measuring tape, a flat surface such as a table, a notepad to record your garment's measurements - and a similar garment which you own. If you do not own a similar outer layer, then using a collared long sleeve shirt which is a comfortable fit will give you an idea of the size which will fit you the best. ⊙ Tip: If you do not have a measuring tape, use your credit card. The long side of a credit card measures 8.5cm and the short side is 5.4cm. Simply use the centimetre measurements on our chart and divide by 8.5cm to get an idea of how many credit card lengths equals the measurement you are recording. STEP 2: Referring to the images above, place your garment flat on the table and record the following measurements: ⊙ 1/2 Bust/Chest - Across the front of the shirt from armpit to armpit; ⊙ Centre Back Length - From the nape of the neck on the back of shirt to the bottom hem. STEP 3: Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to your measurements. Chest/bust is usually the most important measurement if you are in a hurry, but checking all three will make for the most comfortable fit.
Inspired by the review of Anne Wilson on this page, I decided to buy and bring one of these to a safari in March - rainy season. Although when doing a private game drive the guides provide ponchos when start raining, sometimes it takes a long time until they decide it is raining enough to give you the ponchos, so this jacked was a life saver. Also to protect my camera. I am very glad I got these. They are useful in many situations, also for hikes. Very compact, light weight, easy to carry around. Highly recommended.
I love this product! It's compact and lightweight which makes it ideal for long hikes. It has accompanied me to the Drakensberg on numerous occasions and have offered great protection from the wind and rain.
I bought one of these for myself, and it is good quality and quite smart. It packs away easily into the sac, and is very lightweight. My husband has decided that he wants one too, so I am about to order another. If ordering, consider what you want to wear it over. when choosing your size. Allow for thicker jumpers or fleeces etc.
