Welcome to another Outside The Box post! Outside The Box is our blogging series where we write about anything and everything except our equestrian subscription boxes. We review the best products that the equestrian world has to offer, whether that’s clothing, accessories, or horse gear.
This time, I’m reviewing the Rosie jacket from Tottie.
This lightweight, water resistant jacket has become incredibly handy recently.
As a nation, I think we’ve finally come to terms with the fact that summer is well and truly gone. In the North West, this mean rain. Lots of rain.
The very first time I went out wearing my Rosie jacket, I was able to test its water resistant claims very thoroughly! No sooner had I arrived at the yard than a huge deluge of rain began, and I rushed around completing my stable duties feeling very soggy indeed! But when I finally made it back to my car, I realised that whilst my jods were wet through and my hair had had an impromptu wash, my chest and arms were perfectly dry. You could see droplets of water beading up all over the jacket, proving that it was effectively repelling the rain.
So the fact that it’s lightweight and water resistant means that it performs like a pac-a-mac, but a much more stylish one. Which brings me onto my next point…
… I think the Rosie is a very attractive jacket. It is stretchy, so it fits snugly without being restrictive. This means it’s a perfect mid-layer to wear over a t-shirt and perhaps under a coat. Or, on those warmer autumn evenings, it’s great to chuck on when you pop out to walk the dog in case you meet the odd shower!
I like the contrasting grey and blue colours on the Rosie jacket; this is something that Tottie seem to do a lot, and it makes their garments unique and recognisable.
The blue panels provide more than just aesthetic value however. They are made of a breathable mesh material which sits inside the elbows and around the wrists. This keeps you comfortable without overheating, and keeps the wind out of your sleeves!
It also features zipped pockets so you can keep your phone and keys safe whilst out hacking.
The Tottie Rosie jacket retails at just 65.00. I think that’s a bargain for such a useful and stylish jacket. And it gets better! If you’re a member of the Harry Hall One Club, you can get this jacket for £45.50! Click here to get yours!
