Rated 2 out of 5 by Hugh from Flawed While I had previously thought bout buying this jacket, really it was bought on a whim due to being in town, caught out, and the heavens opening. Before it encountered water, it looked and felt like a fantastic "fashionable" jacket. A lightweight wax harrington, what's not to like? Did it keep me dry, yes, it did. However, the jacket still absorbed enough moisture for it to take over 24 hours to dry out. This was the waxed cotton. The stretchy cuffs and hem seem to be serious oversights for a waterproof jacket. They're moisture sponges! This jacket makes zero sense in the rain. The other issue following a drenching was that the zips went from being nice lenear affairs to a repeating S pattern, and when unzipped it looked rather off, and not what you'd expect given the price. Finally, once dry, there were light patches throughout the garment. Almost as if the rain had washed away some of the waxing. Perhaps I got a dud, perhaps its a flawed design. Either way, it went back for refund. My other 4oz jackets do not exhibit such characteristics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kdw57 from Perfect. Had the jacket a few weeks now and had no problems at all fits and looks great more like wearing a shirt than a jacket very lightweight exactly what I wanted

I usually wear an S in jackets, but from the chest measurements this piece seems a bit too roomy. May I get the back length (nape to hem) measurement for size S? Other measurements such as sleeve length and waist circumference would be helpful, thank you.
Thanks for your question. Due to covid restrictions our customer service team are working remotely with no access to our stock warehouse to obtain any further measurements. We have however extended our returns period from 28 to 90 days to allow additional time to return should you find the jacket unsuitable (subject to our standard T&C's).

Hi there, I'm a 41-42 inch chest and I was wondering if anyone could give me some guidance on whether I ought to purchase a medium or large Royston wax jacket? I prefer a slightly slimmer fit although not too tight.
Thanks for your question. We can confirm that the chest measurement of the size medium is 43.3" | 110cm and the size large is 44.8" | 114cm. If a slimmer fit is preferred we would recommend the medium size, although we would always suggest comparing these measurements against a jacket you already own.

Does it have an inside secure pocket for wallets?
The jacket has just one internal breast pocket on the left hand side. It’s a reasonable size and is secured with a Velcro strip. It would easily hold a medium sized wallet.
