Just what a was looking for

I admit I had never heard of Finisterre until I came the shop in Falmouth. I was looking for a lightweight warm and shower proof jacket and the nimbus was spot on. I am hugely chuffed with it

Attention to Detail

Although I haven’t fully tested this jacket, it has kept my dry in rain showers, it has kept me warm when the wind was howling and it is a great lightweight and versatile jacket that negates the need for multiple items of clothing. However, it's the small details I like the most like the reinforced hem and zip baffle and soft fleec patches round my chops. The big internal pocket is handy too.

It’s a piece of gear I should’ve bought a long time ago!

Fast becoming Finisterre’s iconic jacket

This is my second Nimbus and third insulated jacket over 10 years maybe more. They get better and better. Improved, slightly slimmer fit on this one, cuffs are improved as is the insulation structure. It’s my go to jacket for autumn/spring- surf or no surf. Highly recommended.

Excellent product and service

Great design, REALLY lightweight. Nice design touches e.g. in quality of zip toggle. Delighted its manufactured from significant proportion of recycled materials too.

Super cool, super warm.

Excellent jacket that is extremely well made and the performance is outstanding. The jacket saved me from freezing during a recent camping trip where the nighttime temperature plummeted. Thank goodness for the jacket and the hood.
