- Convertible Jackets
The zip on my Royal Transformer Jacket has finally given up the ghost, so I need to track down a suitable replacement (Royal don’t make them any more).
Does anyone have any recommendations for convertible jackets (i.e. ones where the sleeves zip off, and you can use it as a Gilet).
Needs to go up to a decent size (I’m big boned 😉 ) and preferably be soft shell (I carry a packable waterproof for when it’s really tipping down).Posted 6 years ago
Strangely enough, they cater for this by having more than one size
Which would have been hilarious had I said “they only have one size”……. but I didn’t. I said they size fairly small ie for a given size, they come up small compared to other manufacturers product.
Thank for the initial advice though 😀Posted 6 years agoJohnny PanicSubscriber
Like the look of that Convert – didn’t realise they did a softshell version.
Is the softshell version waterproof?
I have a one year old non-softshell version & like it. Have never used it as a gilet though. Not as breathable as other more expensive jackets but it’s well ventilated & I only rarely feel excessively damp in it.Posted 6 years ago
