Men's Clothing size guide

Measuring tips

Take your actual body measurements as they are more accurate than measuring over your clothes or shoes.

Collar: Measure around the base of the neck where the collar sits.

Chest: Measure the chest at the fullest part, placing the tape close up under the arms.

Waist: Measure the natural waistline.

Inside Leg: Measure from the crotch to where your trouser is normally worn on the shoe.

Jacket Length: Measure from the centre back of your neck to your hemline. The length measurement will vary depending on the style.

Feet: Use a ruler or tape measure to measure your foot (from the heel to the tip of your longest toe) Be sure to measure both feet. Many people have feet of different sizes. Fit to the larger of the two.

Hi Gear Men's Packlite Down Jacket

Fantastic jacket for a sale price. Wanted a cheap down jacket for walking the dog and this fits the bill, warm and extremely light weight. Very happy with this purchase.

Stay warm

Possibly the best £25 you could spend this winter. A very light jacket that folds into its own pocket (small enough to fit in another pocket). Hasn't really been tested this year but pretty sure that if/when winter does finally arrive I'll be nice and snug.

Great price/value - I'm using as a mid-layer

I was looking for an inexpensive down jacket to wear as a mid-layer on my motorbike in the colder months. This fits the bill nicely. At the sale price this is very good value. I followed the size chart and it comes up big. If you want it more fitted you may want to go down a size. Im not going to use this as an outer layer - I'm not sure how well it would hold up as it's clearly made to an entry-level price point. I'm looking at jackets several times the price as my outer layer.

Men's Packlite

Nice and warm and lightweight this is the second one I've bought . Take care when packing away as the zip on the left hand pocket. Is put under a lot of strain when folding the coat into it .i just put a couple of stitches near the edge of zip to stop zip from going too far and breaking . Normally 2x is my size but had to get 3x in this

Style and warmth without the cost

Purchased the coat for my father who wanted a down jacket without breaking the bank.
This one fitted the bill on all fronts, amazingly compact when required and great warmth without any bulk when worn.
It convinced me so much I purchased the gilet.

Excellent

Bought as a cheapy for wearing on site when it was cold. I've since found myself reaching for this jacket far more when it's chilly. Almost replaced my 'proper' down jacket as it's never really cold enough in the UK to warrant it!

It's been stuffed in rucksacks, worn to the rugby, scuffed while belaying and got wet several times. Washed 3 times now with Nikwax, still no real signs of wear other than round the cuffs and puffs up warm again each time.

Bargain price now too!

Great light weight jacket

Great jacket took it to Boston and New York in the USA in October/November and was tasty warm when out of the sun and in the evening would highly recommend it to any one who wants warmth in a lightweight stylist storable jacket.

packlite jacket

lovely jacket looks good nice and warm . BUT loses feathers all over the car seats AND after a lot of use it needed washing 30 wash low temp dry with 3 tennis balls which I did the down has disappeared into the coat in clumps and is no longer a warm coat you get what you pay for

Great Jacket

Needed a very light warm jacket for wearing near summit of Snowdon and Cadair Idris and was on a tight budget ! Like others I'm amazed by the quality for the cost, you can't go wrong . Zipped pockets and even has two inside pockets which was a bonus ! Fits well and looks great on me ( apparently ) I am very fussy about the kit I buy and I highly recommend this as a spring to Autumn jacket .

A brilliant buy

For the price, an amazing jacket! Possibly the best £45 I've ever spent on clothing, although originally bought for expedition as a last minute buy due to its pack light ability and good ratings, this has quickly become an every day jacket, it's walk, wind resistant, and to a certain degree will keep you dry in light rain, the build quality is excellent for the price although maybe not 100% for £45 you really can't go wrong with this jacket.

Basic jacket

As a cheap basic jacket it does everything you need it to. This came to Canada with me, first day was -12, with base layer and jumper I was not cold the rest of the time just base layer and t-shirt underneath. If anyone has ever had a down jacket before you are not going to use it as a waterproof outer shell!! if you haven't had one before DON'T ok. Cut could be better but for the cost is not going to be a RAB or Moncler.

Does its job but overpriced.

As a previous reviewer alluded to, down jackets retail at £40. In my opinion it's good for chilly spring through to autumn days/evenings but not practical for hill trekking as I was still too cold with 3 thin layers underneath. I regard down jackets more of a fashionable item of clothing to keep the chilly days at bay.

Mmmmeehhhh....

It's average, I guess that's what you expect for the price but really unless doing some specialist activity I'd recommend going layers layers layers and this just doesn't cut it unfortunately. I went camping, -2°C and I had a base layer, another base layer, T-shirt, fleece and this. And I was freezing!!!!! I had to put on a jumper and another big coat to get warm

Incredibly light, incredibly warm

We carry these in small camelback rucksacks whilst skiing and stick them on in a restaurant at lunch time. They puff out on release and are soft and warm. We have't noticed any feather loss.

superb value

I bought this for my husband who really feels the cold but hates bulky jackets. Despite the low price the quality of the finish is excellent and he tells me it is really warm on chilly days. Its probably not a depth of winter jacket but certainly helps on the early spring cold days,

Fabulous bit of kit

Recently bought this from my local store in Hanley. After a brief chat with a very helpful assistant, decided to buy it (at a bargain price too) and it's so good. Keeps you warm and snuggly and does the job perfectly. Would highly recommend.

Down jacket

Firstly, it's forty pounds for a down jacket. It packs away to next to nothing and is as light as a feather (or at least the shredded ones inside it). No hood. After prolonged walking the jacket rides up the back and needs adjusting (the draw cord is ok). The jacket itself probably needs to be cut differently with a lower back (as you often get on expensive models). The outer fabric is thin, and although ripstop wouldn't last long on any form of crag or thicket. It isn't waterproof (don't wear it as a warm and waterproof shell - you've been warned). It's a mid layer at best, but that's not saying that it's not effective. I've been wearing it over a base layer and under a soft shell outer on some of our drier but cooler days in the hills. With a decent base layer you'll stay dry and warm. A shell adds to the wind proofing. Use it as part of a system and it works a treat. Durability wise it's too early to tell, but at 200pounds cheaper than a Rab etal, it's worth every penny as an addition/spare to your outdoor gear.
