Go Outdoors Freedom Trail Women's Essential Baffled Jacket, Sizes 8-22, 4 colour ways, £20

Found 11th Nov
Wandered into my local Go Outdoors today to look for an insulating type thing jacket. I would love to have the funds for a Rab one or similar but it's not happening! I like this style of jacket and am away to Iceland on Tuesday so that seemed a good excuse ..!

Found these in-store and with some availability online too. Was initially a little dubious given how cheap it is compared to the big players, and I don't pretend for a second that it's equal to a £160er. However, having tried it on and read very positive online reviews I went for it. I think they're great for £20. True to fit, zipped pockets, good sleeve length (slightly long so cosy). I thought it was worth sharing as I'm really pleased!

It's worth noting to get it at this price you need to have (or borrow) a Go Outdoors card, at an annual price of £5.

Technical info from site:

A lightweight, minimalist jacket that'll keep you warm when the temperature drops.Freedom Trail's Essential Baffled Jacket may be simple in its design, but this practical jacket delivers on performance.

It's filled with a synthetic padding that effectively seals in your warmth, with a smooth comfortable lining that allows you to layer up easily.

It has an elasticated hem and cuffs that provide a tight seal, and you even have the bound insulated hood for when the weather really turns bad.

Ideal for everyday wear throughout the year, it will keep you warm and cosy when venturing out into the cold.

  • 100% polyamide outer and lining
  • 100% polyester fill (exclusive of trimmings)
  • Single front zip with chin guard
  • 2 zipped front pockets

Reviews from those who own them suggest quality reasonable for the price. Certainly I was actually impressed by the quality when I first felt them Vs what I would expect for £20. Interestingly I noted that the black and grey ones seem to be a slightly different outer fabric from the other two colours and seem to be nicer quality and a better fit IMO.

Many thanks OP - was looking for a nice warm jacket - this fits the bill perfectly

Another nearly £5 with delivery, but it looks like I can buy without the card ?

That's some size range 8 - 22!
Anorexic to Fat lass.

Thanks OP! I love these coats, like wearing a continental quilt! I've gone for greystone and berry. Got an overnight stay in Blackpool coming up and was looking for a warm coat with a hood, perfect!

Purchased the mens version last year for less.

1. It is not waterproof
2. its very warm
3. you get the feathers on your jumper from the insulation

Bought one last year, use it as a beer coat. Not worried if I lose it unlike my Rab one. Can't go wrong for the price.

This coat doesn't have feathers, if you got one for under £20 with feathers you got a bargain

Mine arrived, they come up big. I would go a size smaller on this jacket. I love it tho
