Millets Hooded Long Jacket : Review…

Millets Hooded Long Jacket : Review…


After spending a wonderful weekend away in London with my family I was so glad I decided to take my lovely, warm and cosy new Millets hooded jacket I got sent last week to review?


About the millets Hooded Long Jacket:


Craghoppers are experts when it comes to designing weather resistant jackets and their Women’s Bingley Hooded Long Jacket is a great example of their skill. It combines Thermo and knit-look fleece fabric with a brushed inner to insulate and warm your core, allowing you to keep going when the temperature drops. It has a longer length which protects a larger area of your body whilst the brushed inner improves fit and comfort.
This versatile jacket has a grown-on hood with faux-fur trim which can be adjusted using a waxed drawcord to improve weather protection. Across the full length zip, an inner guard shields you from cold weather whilst lower zipped pockets provide the ideal space for carrying essential gear easily.


My thoughts on the jacket:

As we were off to London for a couple days, carrying round all our belongings on the last day. I did not want to take my big coat as going in and outside of shops, museums etc, it does start to make you feel really hot and tired. So I thought what better time to try out my new jacket? 

We arrived in St Pancras at around 4 o’clock on Saturday and it was cold, windy with a bit of rain blowing from time to time. I was really impressed with the jacket, stylish and with the brushed inner to insulate it really does keep you warm and cosy.

Having just a short sleeved jumper dress on I was surprised how warm I felt later that night when the wind picked up even more. My jacket was great for going inside where it was warm as it felt nice and lightweight and kept me nice and warm in the wind even though it was not a big thick jacket.

 The jacket had a two way opening zip, great for unzipping at the bottom when you want to sit down and 2 big zipped pockets at the sides great for keeping things safe and handy to get to. The jacket also comes with a hood with faux-fur trim which can be adjusted using a waxed draw cord which was great when we had a little downpour.

  • Stay warm and comfortable in cold weather – made from Thermo and knit-look fleece fabric.
  • Protect and warm more of your body – has a long length design

  • Stay warm and snug outdoors – has a full-length zip guard.
  • Carry essential gear safely – has lower zipped pockets.
