Lightweight Trooper soft shell jacket provides insulation, protection against wind and light rain. When folded the jacket takes a very small amount of space. The hood can be easily adjusted without removing hands from the pockets through two drawstrings located in both chest pockets. On the outside, jacket is coated with Teflon DuPont which protects against dirt and water.
All the actual measurements given on the site as "armpit to armpit x 2" refer to the measurements of the garment and not the size it will fit.
The best way of checking if an item will fit is to measure a similar garment you have which fits well and compare the measurements.
When we give the "Armpit to armpit x 2" on an item it is measured directly at the top of the side seams (armpit to armpit) laid flat, then the measurement is doubled, giving the circumference.
If we state that an item is labelled "to fit xx" / XXcm" please check this against your own measurements.

Genuine postal losses are rare in the UK. Experience has shown us that in most cases items are returned to us by the Post Office as uncollected when buyers have reported items as undelivered. Please check with your local delivery office before contacting us about non-delivery. Where items are returned to us we will contact you and a further Postage and Handling charge will be made before items can be redelivered.
In the event that a parcel is returned to us and there are some issues that should be resolved, an email is written to the customer notifying him/her of the parcel. If 60 days lapse without any response, the goods are warehoused and disposed of.

How to return your order:
A fantastic, very light jacket. More like a windshirt than a fleece (it is a thin shell without padding/insulating layers), good to carry on warm days to deal with a breeze or shower. It remains comfortable to wear even when the weather is quite warm (and I suffer when it gets hot, so if it impresses me it must be good). The pit zips (under the arms for ventilation) are a great feature for keeping you comfortable. Lots of pockets, though the chest pockets aren't that good for your hands as they are placed high to keep them usable if you have a rucksack or waist pack. The hood is surprisingly good for a lightweight, packaway hood. It has useful adjustment, a bit of a peak (as much as you could expect with such a light hood), and swivels with your head so you can see properly. As usual for Helikon the fabric feels like good quality and the construction is really good. The Military 1st size chart is spot on, so refer to that and you should be fine.
