Who said it was overpriced?We have it in stock also the trousers, waistcoat & gaiters too.
The Jacket is Harkila and made with the best in class materials, so over priced, no. Its like saying a Lexus is an overpriced Trabant.
Suitablity for we would agree that it is a country Jacket that wouldn't look out of place in town occasionaly.
It is all leather and therefore very tough indeed when it comes to harsh environments, however, I would not wear it in rain as it will soak it up. It is designed for icey cold bitter winter snowy days out. An occasional shower fine. Yes it can be oiled to help through off the water, but I think it is best used on drier days.
For the UK climate, it is an addition to your waterproof Jacket.
Hope that helps, any questions, you know we are here to help 7 days. Ask for me or Brendan
All the best
