Rated 2 out of 5Â by daffy1 not even waterproof!!
thought id go bit more expensive this time on a rain coat but 45 pound and still wet.
I've only been out in heavy rain for 1 hour and its soaked through.
the coat is very lightweight and comfortable, and i bought the medium which is my normal size and the fit is perfect.
but never the less its not waterproof so i can't recommend to anyone

I've worked in this jacket in torrential rain and wind, but it held the elements out. It is well made and good value for money. As another reviewer has said - the sizes don't make much sense, so you may need to try it on before you buy. Also the sleeves are slightly on the short side if, like me, you have long arms

Rated 5 out of 5Â by goosedriver1 great product
exceptional coat, lightweight compared with other waterproofs I have used, but very effective as I used it immediately after purchase in thunder storm . Then again two days later in more heavy rain and I remained dry.

I bought the Asgard whilst it was on offer with the inner quilted jacket. Together they are an awesome combo for cold wintry weather. Having read the reviews before purchasing I'd had the heads up that the listed chest sizes were a work of fiction. I am a 38" chest medium build without much excess to me. I ordered the Asgard in 50" chest and it fits really well. If anything the arms could do with being 2 cm longer when the arms are fully outstretched, but since I rarely find myself in that position it's a minor issue but worth keeping in mind when buying.
The cuffs have a rubberised grip strip which has velcro on the underside and is good for adjusting the jacket cuffs when hands are wet or you are wearing gloves. The front zip is protected by a storm cuff which is a feature on motorcycle gear and works well in rain. The pockets have rubber strips over the zip to keep the water out but I've yet to see how well these work or how well they will wear over time. The hood is unobtrusive and you can unzip it if needs be. Shame that the hood doesn't roll up into a slot around the neck but at Â£45 for both the jacket and inner liner I have no real issue about that. There are pockets on the inside for mobile phones, wallets etc as well as on the inner quilted lining jacket if you buy that to go with the Asgard.
Other reviewers say that the waterproofing capability is good. I have yet to be rained on so cannot comment. Jackets tend to lose their waterproofing over a short period, especially after a session in the washing machine. A can of Fabsil soon sorts that out but I'll be interested to see if the Asgard retains its water repellency property or joins the other offerings in due course.
