If you’re worried about the colour being too much on the newer Ventile jacket, don’t be! It’s simply beautiful and had loads of compliments. Fit and warmth are as outstanding as I’d expected - it’s a banger in every way.
I’ve been keen to order my first Frahm jacket for a couple of years now but the price and ETA was always something that made me hesitate… “is the quality really worth the money?”, “is it really worth pre-ordering?” I’m sure you will have had similar thoughts/doubts!
Eventually the jacket I originally wanted (Ventile thermal field jacket in Blaze Orange) became obsolete and consigned to history…except some very limited stock then was made available in the archive at a great price. Even better, I could get delivery ASAP and also pay in 3 instalments to make it a bit more justifiable to myself, and more importantly my other half (“How much? It’s a bloody jacket, is it gold plated?”)
The result is that I absolutely love my new jacket, the quality is like no other item of clothing I’ve ever owned and have no doubt that it will last me for many years. I am already planning which Frahm I want to buy next as any doubts I originally had are now dispelled completely.
And for the record my other half can totally appreciate the quality too, she now understands why I was so keen to own this jacket.
Fantastic winter beast of a jacket .
