A good lightweight walking jacket

The Borealis seems a great jacket if you're after something fairly light to wear on walks etc., and it's really nice if you compare it with products from "active" brands of the sort who normally sell walking kit. The colours are good, and from previous experience of Finisterre I'd say the waterproofing will be top-notch.

In my case I was after something a bit more substantial to wear as a general warm winter coat, and I was expecting the Borealis to be more like a parka and less like a waterproof. It's not particularly warm and is quite "technical" feeling and lightweight, so if you are used to wearing coats made of wool or waxed cotton it does feel a bit flimsy. If you have that in mind though and know what you're getting then you can't go far wrong with it, because it does seem to be a great piece of kit.

Lightweight but warm.

I was surprised at how packable and lightweight the jacket is and it has since proved to be warm and windproof. It will now be my jacket of choice for day walks as well as strolls along the beach.

The only thing that would improve it would be a Napoleon style pocket.

Great Everyday Jacket

I've had my Borealis Jacket for over two months now and love it. It's warm and waterproof, fits well and I love the look, that's all I wanted really.

Perfect winter coat for keeping dry and toasty

Present for my partner who was eyeing up my Vellus coat - chose the dark green coat as the yellow lining is too bold for him - great waterproof levels and also warm enough with a sweater underneath for the winter months, but also allows him to wear it in milder weather without getting too hot!
