Scruffs Expedition Tech Jacket - Review

Scruffs have long had a reputation of being makers of innovative safety work wear. They use high-tech materials and come up with functional and utilitarian products. The Scruffs Expedition Tech Jacket, which Mr.H has been reaching out to a lot in the past few weeks, is a combination of functionality and style without being overly work wear in terms of appearance. The Expedition Tech Jacket appears to be one of Scruff's best-sellers and not without reason.

The Expedition Tech Jacket provides excellent protection from wind and rain. The jacket has taped seams and a waterproof membrane which ensures the wearer is protected from rain. It is lined with 3M Thinsulate and is yet very breathable. The jacket really does a very good job of keeping the wearer warm and dry. Having used it in rain and even in sub zero temperatures to good effect, Mr.H is mighty impressed with the jacket. He walks to work most of the days (half an hour one way) and even on rainy days the jacket has kept him dry. It is completely waterproof. And it is light-weight, which is one of the features that Mr.H loves. It makes walking with the jacket on more comfortable.

The jacket has lots of pockets – 9 to be precise. The pockets are distributed all over the jacket, from the traditional positions to ones on the arms and back. The pockets vary in size and shape but all of them are accessible and useful. Mr.H loves the fact that there are enough pockets to store all his daily carries. A special mention goes to the little see-through breast pocket which comes with a handy little torch. The torch can be removed from the pocket and used as a traditional torch or you can use it hands free while it is still in the pocket. It has a super bright LED inspection lamp on the side that shines through the see-through window. Just like the jacket, the torch is also very lightweight but is tough as it is made from aircraft grade aluminium. The torch does not come with a battery. You will need 1xAA battery to power it. The inclusion of this torch is an excellent security feature especially if you are out walking on a dark evening.

In addition to being functional, the jacket is stylish as well. The hood of the jacket has a eye-catching orange camouflage design. Orange is the colour for the accents as well. The only minor gripe Mr.H has it that the jacket attracts lint. But you can take care of that either by using an anti-static cloth spray or the traditional lint roller.

Overall, Mr.H loves this jacket a lot and cannot recommend it enough. According to him it is a winner in terms of style and practicality. It is designed to perform in extreme conditions, is light-weight (thus comfortable to wear), made with high quality materials, is loaded with functional features and is stylish too. And it does its job very effectively - it will keep you warm and dry. Not surprisingly the jacket has received many compliments already from Mr.H's colleagues and friends. It’s a winner!
