The Kartona jacket is incredibly warm utilising two different types of insulation. Natural down is used to protect the core while synthetic insulation is used in the sleeves and at the sides. The jacket is long, fitting well over wide hips. The hem is also adjustable to prevent any cold getting inside. There are two pockets, but the small zip pulls were difficult to use in gloves. The jacket also has a durable water repellent finish help stop the rain penetrating through. The hood is a good size if you have a ponytail. It is not adjustable, but the elastic hem fits your face well so that your field of vision isn’t reduced when you turn your head. The cuffs are adjustable allowing you to put gloves underneath and keep out any draughts.
► Verdict: An excellent jacket for this price range.
► Best for: Keeping you warm in very cold conditions.
