I’ve bought a few Frahms before which are predominantly stylish smart casual jackets but with greater utility than most- ie they look and feel good and while they often don’t claim to be waterproof, they inevitably turnout to be highly water resistant. In some ways the 4 seasons is the other way round- it is predominantly a high performance waterproof but with much more style and feels nicer material and a better fit than most. This isn’t going to be my choice for very serious mountaineering- it needs to be longer for that which I knew before buying- but for leisurely walking or just going out when you know it’s going to rain hard it’s great. Any waterproof and breathable jacket should bead water- but the beading on this is very impressive. The half scalloped and half elastic cuffs are really good giving protection but without nasty Velcro flaps. Overall I’m very happy with the jacket- it has the balance of performance and style just right.
Another great jacket!
Arrived just in time, as my waterproof hooded field jacket is a much heavier construction. I just love the colour, I don't want all my FRAHM jackets to be in Navy blue! Great fit and a nice length wonderful attention to detail, zip pools, zips, cuffs, snap fasteners on pockets, all typical of what one expects, when you buy from the FRAHM jacket lifestyle.
