The days are getting longer again, the temperatures are rising and you can feel the first hints of spring in the air. Time to slowly put the thick, fluffy winter jackets aside and look for a replacement. But the choice is wide. There are jackets in a wide variety of colours, different cuts and a variety of materials. The functions can also vary greatly. It's not that easy to find the right companion for the transition season here.
Therefore we decided to test a product for you. We have selected the classic ladies' bomber jacket from Kingsland. A rather simple jacket in timeless navy.
I was thrilled the first time I tried it on. The jacket has a light lining and thus meets my requirements for a transition jacket. It is not too warm, but still offers protection against cool temperatures. Since there is often still a fresh wind blowing in spring, I find the stand-up collar particularly practical. This not only protects the sensitive neck area but also looks great. A distinctive, three-colour Kingsland logo is attached to the back.
On warmer days you can simply leave the zip open a little.
The cut also convinced me. The typical bomber jacket shape, but in a slightly tailored women's cut. The cuffs have an elastic band and a Velcro fastener, which means that they can be optimally adapted to the arm.
The zip looks very robust and the jacket withstood washing in the washing machine without any damage or loss of shape. The jacket could also prove itself on the horse. The loose shape makes it particularly comfortable and does not feel tight when riding. Even inside the jacket, there was always a pleasant climate on the trial rides.
Unfortunately, what I noticed less positively is that dirt and dust, which occur more often in the transition period, easily stick to the jacket. This makes the jacket look dirty relatively quickly.
All in all, this is a jacket that is rather simple in function and design, but which meets all the basic requirements. The strength of the jacket is ideal for the transition period or for spring or autumn. The chic stand-up collar offers additional protection against wind and weather. The fit is loose and comfortable. A great jacket for practitioners!
