I thought long and hard about whether I would make this purchase or not given the price of the jacket, the YouTube video started my juices flowing as it is exactly the sort of jacket I had been looking for. I am so glad I took the plunge as it is an absolute classic. The smock is truly built to last and is in a fantastic shade of olive colour. The item is reinforced in all the right places to minimise prevent wear and tear and has oodles of pocket space for any combination of a smock coat load out. The amount the jacket can carry is formidable. The jacket is sized to allow for ample insulative layers so bear this in mind if you order. The jacket is not waterproof and despite my having used tons of Greenland wax on other same material construction Fjallraven clothing items I have yet to find waxing the item makes them other than light shower proof. What I have discovered is Fabsil Gold (a tent proofing silicon liquid) which when applied to your G1000 clothing makes them totally waterproof if applied correctly, my Anorak no.8 was treated previously with fantastic results and this Smock no.1 will be on my list too. This saves on having an additional waterproofing layer in addition to this smock. I could not be happier with this coat and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone in a position to purchase it.
