Concerting the ˈoperationalˈ properties – you can adjust and tighten the lower hem of the jacket quite a lot so you do not need to worry about being cold form ˈdown belowˈ. The hems of the sleeves are elastic and there are no ˈthumb holesˈ on them – despite not looking that well on small people like myself it gives the jacket a great variability for wearers of all heights and lengths. What I love about this jacket are its wonderfully big pockets! Two of them are in the level of the waist and a smaller one on the chest, all fastened by a zipper. I can stuff nearly anything I need into the two big ones – my wallet, umbrella, a little snack, gloves, a hat… The big hood is detachable and it is possible to tighten it around the face, which literally saved my life a couple of times last winter. The only thing I miss on this jacket is some kind of a neck protector… Well, at first I was very unhappy about it, but then I knitted myself a merino infinite scarf that works just as fine as any super-sophisticated neck protector in the world.
Without a wearie, well, it is just an ordinary sports jacket, nothing really fashionable; however, considering the fact I never wear it without Emilka and that it is so amazingly universal and functional, I am more than happy to forgive it not being stylish enough.
If you need a jacket, that not only you could wear, but also a babywearing daddy or a babywearing grandma or grandpa could wear, and you also want to wear on your back with maximum comfort, them I can only recommend the Adom jacket!
