Monica Schroederwrote a review of Barbour Flyweight Cavalry Quilt Jacket - Women's on June 3, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
FIts great, perfect warmth for chilly Spring mornings and evening. All I need, keys and phone fit in the outer pockets. There is a secure inside pocket for my cards. The outer pockets snap closed.
Love that the sleeves go below my wrists. They are snug enough to not let the wind blow up the sleeves, yet loose enough so I can easily look at my watch.
One of my favorite details of this jacket is the waist shaping option. THere are hidden snaps in the back. You can make the waist snugger or looser for a boxier look. I set mine snugger.
I was looking for a dog walking jacket for the Spring. Since I've received the jacket I don't just wear it walking the dogs, but wear it on my bike commute to work, going out with friends. Just about any casual occasion.
Washed it once already and still looks like new. No shrinking or fading.
TWO ALERTS: 1) the sizes on this website are UK. Had ordered 10, which is actually size 6 in the US. Backcountry was able to correct my size before it had shipped out. So if you are a size 10, you need to choose size 14 on the pulldown.
2) The image of the black jacket shows a blue jacket. The black is indeed black, beige inside.
