I was in need of a new work jacket and didn’t want the same old run of the mill selections. This popped up on my Instagram feed and it instantly called to me. I ordered up and first one was my standard size L.
These run big, I had to go to a medium and based off fit; might have been able to roll a small! Didn’t see that coming, but very happy overall. I’m 5’9” 190lbs 73” reach.
Warm, comfortable, functional. Collar is a bit tall, but you don’t deal with drafts coming in(I’m 17 years at Costco and stock the cooler 35-38 degrees and 6 36” fans blowing continuously.) The extended tail is nice, along with the button closure over main zipper. The sleeves are plenty long, which is always a concern when you have monkey arms! I’m only 2 weeks into wearing it, but I have high hopes for it. It’s a little too warm for casual use or work above 45 degrees in my opinion. The only flaw I’ve found is some bunching up creases in the lower front from bending/squatting down and it folding since it hangs to crotch area. That may straighten out after breaking in more and a wash? I will say dealing with Trusted Gear has been a pleasure and when I contacted them about returning the original size, Josh was very attentive and helpful. I do a lot of online purchases(50-75 a year probably)and you never know what kind of service you get as far as delivery times, response to tracking, communication; etc. I will definitely utilize them again when I have workwear needs.
