German manufacturer, Brandit, offers a comprehensive selection of quality urban and classic military-style products for everyday wear, such as combat trousers, hoodies, footwear, water-repellent jackets, and warm coats. The company prides itself on providing stylish gear created with attention to detail and made of high-quality textiles, all carefully processed for that unique vintage look.
The Brandit Windbreaker is made using a water and wind-repellent polyester material for the outer, with a more fleece-style lining. It features a full-length front zipper with a pull tab, plus it has a Velcro-fastened storm flap. The high stand-up collar offers extra protection against the elements, while the fully-adjustable hood shows a soft fleece lining for added warmth. It also uses Velcro-adjustable wrist cuffs, has an adjustable bottom hem with side cords and quick locks, plus a hanging loop. For your bits and bobs, there are 2x zipped hand warmer pockets, plus a Velcro-fastened, inside-left breast pocket.
Next up is the Lumber Hooded Jacket. Manufactured with a 100% cotton outer, and a 100% polyester artificial fur lining, this timeless and fashionable-looking jacket will keep you warm in all weathers. The inner is often referred to as ‘teddy fleece’, and the outer has flannel pattern styling.
The lined, detachable hood has a strong drawcord. The front of the jacket is fastened with large buttons, while the cuffs also show buttons. This straight-cut garment features 2x buttoned-down chest pockets, 2x handwarmer pockets, plus an internal velcro-fastened pocket.
Last but not least, is the classic-looking Britannia Winter Jacket. It is manufactured with a 100% cotton body and a 100% polyester lining. There is some 100% polyester padding and a 100% polyurethane, hooded zipper section. Overall, it really does look the part.
The removable hood is concealed in the rear of the high collar and is secured in place with a water-resistant zipper. The jacket also shows a heavy-duty front zip closure with pull assist, plus a press stud and button-down storm flap. The ‘teddy fleece’ inner lining gives plenty of added warmth, while underarm vent holes help with breathability and temperature control.
A tailored fit is achieved with the internal waist adjusters, which are real leather, the 2-position button-adjustable cuffs, and the lower back slit with press stud fastening.
Storage is more than adequate, with 4x buttoned-down upper and lower front pockets, plus an internal, lower-left-hand open pocket. The shoulder epaulettes with buttons further the jacket’s military styling, plus there is a brand logo patch on the left arm.
The Windbreaker is a great choice when you need extra protection from the elements, and it can easily be rolled up to be stored in your pack. The Lumber Hooded Jacket is certainly one for keeping you warm during a long walk in the cold, while the Britannia Winter Jacket is a more general-purpose, universal outer garment, that any hunter or outdoorsman will be thankful for during colder weather.
