First up - Who are Joe Browns?
As most of the country have snow at the moment, and for those of us without cold winds and rain I decided to look at their winter jackets. I have been looking round the shops for a long, heavy padded coat to use when walking but have not managed to find one that fitted my criteria, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a parka . Its description is
Climbing a mountain or trekking to the pub? This parka will serve you well. The big pockets, tough quilt lining and a roll away hood are standard issue.
65% Cotton, 35% Polyester
Ok so technically it is a mans jacket but to me it it looks plenty unisex and it fits the criteria I was looking for.
I have used this jacket twice for walks so far, once when cold and dry and once when drizzly white stuff that had the cheek to call itself snow was coming down. The hood comes out easily and both myself and the jacket were still dry when we got home, the water sits on top of it rather than soaks in. It is a large made jacket but that gives the leeway of adding an extra layer or two under it for really cold weather.
They sell a wide variety of mens and woman clothing, from hooded tees, to brogues, 50's dresses to capes, hats and gloves to jewellery. Items for all tastes across a good age range and good choice in sizes.
