Raglan sleeves give you plenty of movement and room for layering – you can fit a sweater under this jacket with ease. The storm flaps and generous collar add style and help to keep inclement weather out.

All of the seams on the inside of the jacket are bound which not only gives your coat a professional finish, but also helps it stand up to wear and tear. If you’re not up for binding all of the seam allowances though, you can easily serge the insides.
