Love it. Perfect fit, adds just the right amount of warmth
My husband says, "I like it a lot." Seriously though, I was a little worried when it arrived because it was thinner than I expected for an outer layer, but my husband says it's really warm. Both my husband and I are super impressed by the built in face covering in the hood. It's a really sleek design, and the quality of Burgeon stitching cannot be matched. Love supporting local business; it's worth the price every time!
The length of the sleeves is perfect, so when you go to reach for something they don't ride up like the jacket is too small. The amount of pockets is amazing. And the hood with the integrated face covering is amazing on cold windy days. So all of this combined is the Perfect Jacket.
The Washington is a very breathable piece. Comfortable even when working pretty hard since it breathes so well, but with a good amount of warmth, so all around perfect for a lot of stop-and-go when you don't want to waste a lot of time layering up and down. Completely blocks light wind. When the wind kicks up a bit, you can definitely feel the windit, but anything with more wind protection seriously compromises on breathability. This construction also means it moves well, no binding or constricting when reaching with the arms. Sheds snow like a champ.
The integrated balaclava is great. Slides on over the head easily, gives excellent face coverage, and stays out of the way if just using the hood without the balaclava.
The whole package is fantastic for winter hiking on cooler days; just this plus a base layer does the job when temperatures are in the teens.
6'3", 220lb, large tall is perfect sizing.
Firstly, I own plenty of coats - from warm parkas to lightweight winter jackets. I needed something more technical that covers a lot of bases when hiking through the English countryside. After a few days wearing the Washington it oozes quality. The stretch material, the right number of pockets, the perfect sized hood - you can tell this is a serious bit of craftsmanship. Really impressed with how it handles a downpour. It performed well today in prolonged rain (which ran off the outer fabric like water off a ducks back). Excited to see what else Burgeon have in the pipeline.
