Devaughnwrote a review of UBR Regulator Parka II LTD Savile - Men's on November 25, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
I struggled with buying a proper winter coat for many years. I wear suits to work, so i’d typically by on wool or cashmere topcoats. But finally i had had enough of freezing outside. I considered the usually suspects. Beig canadian i was heavily biased towards the hometown brands e.g. Canada Goose. But everything i saw was too bulky and had logos plastered all over. I also wanted something business-like, so i insisted on a wool shell. Canada goose did have a line called Branta, that used Loro Piana wool, but it was discontinued. Finally, i found Uber. Weird name... But i loved the lines of the coat. Very trim, but long enough to fully cover a suit. The shell is Cerruti wool, a well known mill. Despite it being wool, the exterior feels very durable. Of course its incredibly warm. Beyond the basics, the coat is cleverly constructed. Magnets help keep flaps down. Rubber flaps keep water out of the pockets. The zippers are top shelf. All in all well worth the money. It compars to coats twice the price. In sells in europe for about $1,500US. Ive been wearing it for a week and ive already received several compliments. Good job Uber! (BTW, id suggest a brand name change. Id highlight its Norse roots). Last thing id lean towards sizing up. Im typically a medium in shirts and sweater, but a medium was much to tight for me.
