In a world where little seems to matter other than the price, the design houses leverage their brand to provide you with poor quality items at inflated prices, or the hype around the next great thing turns out to be bollocks; I found Frahm. The quality of their coats is outstanding, they delivered on their promise and I can't wait for my next one to arrive. Don't worry about the price, buy one jacket rather than 3 and be happy with it, rather than disappointed 3 times over. Buy it right or buy it twice! Well done Nick!
It’s taken me quite a while to get round to this review as I wanted to do it justice...and the fact I just put it away for the warmer weather.
My initial impressions were that this is a beast of a jacket! And upon trying it on and even the first few walks that the sleeves were maybe too long (or not as the case may be). I spent a significant amount of time in this through the winter in Scotland from cold windy days to some pretty heavy snowfall and it passed it all. The more I wore it the more I appreciated the longer sleeves and when in deep snow the zips up the sides of the legs. The hood is cracking and super warm. One of my favourite things is the lining which is just class 👌
I wasn’t sure at first what I thought but it grew on me and became a firm favourite!
Great jacket amazing customer service
I bought this jacket for my husband and he absolutely loves it (as do I) The cut, fit and style of the jacket are timeless and this will always be a staple in any man's wardrobe.
I would add that the customer service was impeccable as I ordered the wrong size (twice!!) but the team were so helpful, patient and understanding.
I'm just hoping there will be a female line soon!!
This Thermal Military Parka is the fourth jacket I've purchased from Frahm. Initially I purchased the same size as my previous jackets but when it arrived it was absolutely enormous on me, due to the different cut and deliberately oversized proportions - thankfully I was able to exchange it for the next size down. And I'm so glad I did.
I can only echo the other reviews and comments of this coat - it's built like a tank. The weather has been cold and wet since I received my Parka, which has been perfect for test driving it. There's a real feeling of battening down the hatches as you close the various fasteners on the front. None of my other Frahm jackets have hoods but I'd heard good things about the way they had been implemented on other coats and I'm happy to report that the Parka's hood is excellent.
A feature carried over from other jackets is the hand pockets behind the flapped pockets on the front - I absolutely love this feature and wonder why more manufacturers haven't adopted it.
I can't honestly think of anything negative to say - even the customer service was exemplary when resolving the issue of my first jacket being too large. If I was being really harsh I might have knocked off a fraction of a star for having to pay £25 to return the first jacket (it's big, heavy and expensive so this was the only option my Post Office would offer) - but I appreciate that offering free returns would make a big dent in a small company's cashflow.
