Out with the old and in with the Nora. The “Nora” softshell jacket, by R.J. Classics, presents a modern fitted, performance enhanced show coat, without sacrificing the traditional hunt look. Gone are the days of the heavy wool-blends. Show coats now are all about performance, fit and convenience.
PERFORMANCE. The half-lined mesh interior is less restrictive when you are riding, promotes better ventilation and helps to streamline the overall shape of the jacket. No more extra bulk wearing you down, preventing full range of motion or making you over-heated.
FIT. The Nora has a hidden interior zipper (I had no clue until I borrowed one for a picture before purchasing my own!) that provides a tailored look and prevents any unsightly gapping. There are 3 exterior buttons, maintaining the traditional hunter/jumper look.
CONVENIENCE. The jacket can be machine washed (be sure to read care instructions first!), which is so much more convenient than going to the dry cleaner (and cheaper!). The fabric also has antimicrobial properties that help tp prevent odors and it easily wipes off, so you have a better chance of getting more than 1 day out of it at the show. According to the website, the the softshell is moisture wicking and has UPF 50 protection.
I would say the fit is true to the size chart. Also comes in Black, Green and Grey. Navy is pictured. Click HERE to buy.
