Got this jacket for Christmas and it's basically ruined already. I tend to wear my jacket opened unless it's raining heavily or absolutely freezing and when walking the cuff area of my sleeve brushes against the velcro of the main zip. I'm sure this happens on every jacket I've ever owned, but on this one the sleeve has become frayed to the point that the stitching on the cuff has become loose and I've had too sew it myself The area around the cuff looks like a cat's scratching post now though Never had this before on a jacket. Certainly not inside a month of owning it. I've hardly been out in it either: with lockdown there's nowhere to go! Must either be the most abrasive velcro in history or really poor jacket material. Go outdoors wanted me to send it back to them at my cost to investigate and if they disagreed that it was a quality issue I'd have had to pay for it to be returned to me. I felt that with that stance from the outset it seemed likely they wouldn't refund so I just left it So buyer beware if, like me, you mostly wear jackets unzipped!
There's only so many ways a coat can be designed. Similarities are bound to ocurr.
Rip-off of the superdry men’s “Alpine jacket” that was made years ago
Neither did I until I rang Milletts until I asked for my local store which was some distance but told that I had a Go Outdoors neater who are linked albeit if I ordered online with Milletts I could not return to Go Outdoors yet as the Till Systems are not the same. I bought my coat from Go Outdoors for the same deal of £35 for the man version.
What's the connection with Go Outdoors and Milletts and Black's ? Black's and Milletts are owned by JD Sports, didn't think JD had a connection to Go Outdoors.

Have a similar coat from Peter Storm with "storm tech". Not great at keeping the water out. Alright for a short shower but awful over a prolonged period of rain. Wetter than my granny at a Sir Cliff gig.
Picked a peck of pickled peppers XD
Yes I think it was this price, or thereabouts. At first I was really pleased and impressed by the quality. It seems waterproof, though I've never worn it in heavy rain, warm enough - but not so warm that I overheat, has loads of pockets, and seems well stitched together. So I was surprised and annoyed when the zip failed. I'm guessing just a random quality control failure. If I needed another parka I wouldn't hesitate to buy another at this price - but I would check the zip for loose teeth on arrival.
Helpful advice! Did you pay a similar price for it? Would you say that's what it's worth, or is this pretty good value for money (Zip problems aside)?
I bought one of these a couple of years or so ago as something I didn't care about getting grubby for standing around in the cold. It's pretty good except for the zip. The zip is plastic and the first time I ever actually wore it in anger one of the teeth came lose rendering the zip useless. By the time this happened the return period was over and so I was not a happy bunny. But because the tooth had not come off completely I saved it, and with super glue, magnifying goggles, and a tiny pair of pliers, managed to reattach it, and it's been, touch wood, fine since. So whilst I think the coat at this price is very good quality for the money, I'd suggest if you get one to check the zip over before the return window is closed.
Mrs got her 2 jackets today, great service from Tresspass. Both jackets amazing quality, proper happy! Thanks OP!
Nothing warm in proper Jackets under £50.
No problem at all and you too! :)
Unfortunately there's only xs sizes on the trespass site for what I was looking at, hoodies and trousers mainly. I'll keep looking too, I have my alerts all set and ready :) I realised I had the heat set a bit too high after missing out on the hollister one! Enjoy your day

I’d be wary from ordering here, they used to have a live chat but they have closed that, and they have also closed communications via twitter. The only way to get to them is email but no one is bothering to reply. In my opinion the least they can do is open the phone lines ( other big retailers have their lines open, it’s no wander that Debenhams are bust (mad) my dress and face cream still haven’t arrived from December 🙈
Nope, used to have a fishtail back in the 80's, shaped at the bottom of the back like a fishtail, this is flat.
Not fishtail, not parka. Just a polyester jacket. Not worth half that price.
The website is not being operated by Boohoo yet - stock is being cleared then the website will close down and be relaunched later next year under Boohoo (At that point I won’t use it XD )
