Unlike how quite a lot reviews on here start, I had no hesitation in ordering this jacket online (Khaki size M). I watched the videos and read the about stuff and just bought into this brand almost straight away because you feel the passion and dedication from these guys and I admired that and wanted to support them. Plus I was after a jacket just like this that I can wear to the pub, take the dog for a walk etc plus it had to look the business, be hard wearing and backed up with a warranty that shows confidence in the product. What I didn’t want was another performance jacket that I have so many of already as I’m a bit fed up of looking like a stereo typical outdoors person from the go outdoors catalogue. So, this jacket is superb, I mean that genuinely and just to put this in perspective I own jackets from Belstaff, Barbour, Arcteryx, Fjallraven, Rab, Paramo, Harkila.. I’ve spent way too much on jackets .. some of these are now going on FB marketplace.. I’ve found my ideal jacket .. next I’m going for the parka which will clear a few more jackets from my wardrobe..
Now Spring is here I've been wearing it a lot. However, I think that for the over 80s, like me, we need to have blank labels on the pockets; there are so many! I get lost trying to find things. So if we could write on individual pockets, such as "Spare false teeth" "glasses for reading", glasses for driving"" Those bits of paper I know are useful but can't remember what they are for" etc But apart from regular searches to find things, it is really good to have those pockets as I am a pocket hoarder to the extent that my friend bought me a man's handbag; no need for that now. I mentioned poacher's pockets because they are so deep, lovely!, that a rabbit might just be concealed, certainly edible hamsters.
I found the jacket a bit stiff but it is a field jacket. does it become more supple after washing?
All in all, I am very glad to have one, it is very useful, and smart so it greatly impressed my friend who was despairing of the rags hanging off me.
I was a little uncertain about buying this jacket over the Internet. However the team were fantastic at advising me. The quality and detailing are excellent and it will last me for many years I am sure. The only thing to say is that I am an XL in most other brands however I needed XXL in this brand as the fit is slightly snug. A great product overall. Thank you!
I have held off writing a review as I wanted to use the jacket in different conditions. The reviews are spot on. Great fit, works well in all conditions, regulates temperature, it’s fast becoming my go to jacket. When I first used it the zip and buttons were a little stiff but after a few wears it loosened up. On top of the great product I also received excellent service from the Frahm team. Izzy responded to my questions immediately and nothing seemed too much trouble. Great product and already considering future purchases. Thanks guys 👏. Btw I received a post office “scam” text requesting payment for delivery. Ignore, it’s a scam, Frahm provide free delivery.
