We all face tough decisions: stay in or brave the rain? Biscuits or no biscuits? (Always biscuits!)
Our jackets are made by humans. Sometimes humans make mistakes. Our Definition Jackets have recently been subjected to some human mistakes, leaving some of their cord locks somewhat impaired
Rather than sending some top-notch jackets to landfill, we’ve opted to turn a human error into an opportunity for some other humans to get a right good deal. In brief, we’re choosing biscuits.
Don’t worry, we’re been off to visit our factory to find a solution for future batches of Definitions!
So what’s the problem?
These factory seconds Definition Jackets are still waterproof, they’re still tough, and they’re still excellent.
Unfortunately, the front hood and hem drawcord locks on these jackets may not work, meaning that the hem can be cinched in, but not drawn out again. The front hood can be drawn back out, but it’s a little fiddly.
The rear hood cord lock is in full working order on all affected jackets.
For full spec on the jackets, please visit the Definition Jacket product page.

Not yet used in scottish winter but good so far (will update)
I'm a size 8 normally but bought a 12 as these are a seriously athletic fit! I wanted a jacket for winter mountaineering, thus it needed to fit my softshell, a synthetic down and layers of woollies underneath without being too tight. A size 12 fits the bill on this for me and doesn't completely swamp me in spring/autumn when I'm in fewer layers.
So far I've used this in summer torrents so can confirm it is waterproof, and the defect in the cinch cords either doesn't seem to be a problem on my jacket or only occurs occasionally. Either way, I was happy with the bargain price and haven't noticed the problem. It'll be tested more in winter mountaineering conditions where every fiddly detail is crucial, but on balance the draw cord system is way easier to operate with gloves on than other models anyway, so I don't anticipate this being a major issue.
Jacket is a good length to have a harness over it, and the pockets are a bit higher and out of the way of the harness than on some other brands' models (although I still covet the massive Napolean pocket on the NF jackets.....sorry).
I'm looking forward to acquiring the mountaineering trousers whenever they are due to be released.........
