Countryfile Magazine - - Lazy Days -

This stylish and en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly jacket is made from a 100% recycled polyester fab­ric that con­tains no PFCs (the toxic sub­stances used in the man­u­fac­ture of many wa­ter­proof jack­ets). The fab­ric is wa­ter­proof, with fully sealed seams and an ad­justable hood, while re­main­ing

breath­able. It’s only avail­able in an (undyed) white – not ev­ery­one’s cup of tea, but I’m a fan. The down­side is the sound – when mov­ing, it makes a crin­kling plas­tic noise. The goose down fill is RSD-cer­ti­fied (ie sourced eth­i­cally) and warm. Men’s and women’s ver­sions are avail­able.

VER­DICT: Green walk­ers will love this warm and wa­ter­proof jacket – if only it was more af­ford­able. MH www.coun­try­file.com
