Held Mistral II Waterproof Jacket - Black / Fluorescent Yellow
Customer Product Reviews
Two totally different types of same jacket?
I bought this jacket to replace my ten year Held Mistral II jacket which had began to leak. The first jacket I bought before Christmas was faulty the strap to secure the cuff fell off after a couple of months due to poor workmanship. I noticed that the jacket was extremely flimsy compared to my 10 year old jacket which was supposed to be identical. I then tried various jackets but couldn't find any with a wide enough cuff to go over my gloves, so I ordered two more Mistral II jackets. One was large the other was extra large, on opening them it was evident that the XL jacket was made of material 2-3 times thicker & was far better made than the L jacket. I guess that the XL was probably an older stock item which I am thankful for as it is of an identical quality to my 10 year old jacket it has replaced. I am unsure if I would buy another as the price of these jackets has increased by over 20% & the quality appears to very poor on the newer, thinner jackets.
Great waterproof over jacket
Bought this for a recent trip to Ireland and it certainly kept out all the rain even after a couple of hours in the saddle. Fits nicely over my RST suit and just ordered the same size as the jacket is quite generous. Could be a little tighter round the cuffs but other than that well worth the purchase. Bought the matching Held trousers as well. Both good quality items made to last.
Good fit, waterproof and hi-viz
Item is a good fit, I wear a Large jacket and the Large fits very well with no need to go up a size. Keeps me perfectly dry and the hi-viz is very good and much needed on wet dull days and nights.
