I've been eyeing this jacket for ages, and in the meantime, I've also bought a few other jackets from FRAHM, ..... it's becoming a bit of a habit. Anyway, I finally managed to get one of these in Blaze Orange too, and I've worn it ever since I took delivery, wearing it in Storm Ciaran, Storm Debi and every other weather event we have had since, otherwise known as a normal Pembrokeshire winter (as we don't do vertical rain here) and a nice cold snap in Lincolnshire in between, and all I can say is Wow.... I've been warm, toasty, but best of all, dry. The detail and quality are fantastic; the only additions (if it's possible to improve on perfection) I would suggest are a split zipper, so you don't have to undo the coat fully if nature calls, and a couple of magnetic closers (the same as the top) within the front seam in addition to the poppers.
This was my first FRAHM jacket so didn’t know exactly what to expect and whether the reviews were accurate. As soon as I put it on the fit and quality was apparent, it’s so warm on the windiest days and kept me toasty the whole day. Yes it’s expensive but reassuring so and I’m so glad I made the leap. I have my eyes on the 4 seasons rain jacket now!
Not my first jacket from Frahm but my new favourite. It ticks every box and I love it. The quality and detail are worth every penny and the wait.
You can feel the quality in this shirt, feels great and looks even better (the missus approves too 😉😂)
It’s a fantastic gilet , very comfortable and warm
Got a couple of other Frahm jackets! Decided to get the thermal parka wow great quality attention to detail is amazing super warm absolutely love it
What a fantastic jacket. Discovered Frahm after spotting one out and about. Ordered a Storm Jacket at full price but as usual I neglected to double check the size specs. Should have got the size bigger as the jacket was fantastic but just a little tight across the chest. Returns process was smooth and easy. Customer service was prompt as well after I checked in to see if they had any stock - now waiting patiently for an email saying they have one in my size. Fingers crossed.
Took the plunge . Stylish. Warm. Well made. Soooo well made. Today I am at lunch in BAFTA London and it is by far the nicest jacket here. Thank you frahm for keeping me warm stylish and dry. I will be back for more .
This jacket just oozed quality. Really lovely cut and materials
Just received my parker. The style and fit are great. Worn today for the first time and it is keeping me very warm. I know it will get a lot of use now over the next few months. I'm, very please with my purchase
Beautiful made can’t wait to wear it feels top quality
I've debated buying this one long and hard while my resolve crumbled and I've bought numerous others. in the meantime I finally went for military green and it feels like I could do bomb disposal in it. All the usual attention to detail you expect from a Frahm Jacket, the burst poppers pop when I squat or sit down, it's lovely and warm and easily accommodates multiple layers. Like most parkas you do need a scarf to really close the neck to the chill. I've seen another review that suggested the pockets are too low and I might agree but simply suspect that in my case it's because I'm a short-arse. I can still get my hands in them, and of course gloves fit easily in the pockets. I was even amused to note that the thermal lining and added 'inner skirt' are that efficient that they stopped my heated car seat from giving me any benefit on a recent short journey. Overall this is a fantastic bit of kit
Can’t emphasise enough about the quality of these products. Absolutely unreal. Top quality gear!
It's winter and it's good to have the my Foreign Correspondent's Jacket, which looks great, is keeping the weather out and has enough space for layering up.
In fact, if I spec'd a jacket, the Foreign Correspondent's Jacket would be very close to what I'd be after.
One of my main annoyances with other jackets is not having enough secure pockets to comfortably get all my bits and bobs in without having to take a separate bag out with me. The FCJ has this covered with pockets that are secured by various types of quality fasteners and zips.
The FCJ tips a wink to retro styling, doesn't need rewaxing, which is a big plus, is washable and looks better with wear, I hear. It's somewhere between a jacket and coat, which works for me.
At present, I find myself constantly looking for excuses to leave the house so that I can wear my FCJ once again!
This is my second Frahm jacket after buying one of the first edition field jackets which I have worn year round since purchase. This ventile jacket is superb, and arrived just in time for a cold week in Cornwall. Love the details, especially the way the hood sits. The material and quality of the jacket are second to none. You definitely get what you pay for and this ticks all the boxes for quality design, production and hence value.
We sell by pre-order. That benefits you and us. It's how we've built our incredible reputation.
Making the best gear isn't easy. We need time. We sell by pre-order.
It means we don't have excess stock. No waste. No burning them in skips (that actually happens).
We don't have to shift piles of unsold jackets in various Winter / Summer / Black Friday sales. Massive discounts seem great, but the big brands have to erode quality to still make (lots) of money. It's not bargain, they make you pay, with disappointing wares.
By knowing our price, and having time, we make exceptional jackets. We're biased, but read those reviews.
As a reward for your patience, we give you a 20% 'Earlybird' discount. If there's anything left, its full price. Fair.
Buying a FRAHM is an investment. The price is waiting.
