Rockholly is a brand that brings modern fashion to the outdoors. Not only do the brand’s products look like they’ve just come off the catwalk, but they’re versatile enough to wear on adventures, come rain or shine. This is why I wanted to get my hands the Short Transitional Jacket, because I wanted a jacket that I could go hillwalking with during the day and still feel comfortable enough to wear it to the pub without feeling like an old school Rambler. Nothing against them, I’m just not at that age yet.
Having worn the Short Transitional Jacket quite a lot this summer along with other waterproofs that I have, it has been a particular favourite of mine. Not only does it look good, but it offers a waterproof rating of 8,000mm, and has sealed seams which keeps the elements at bay during a down pour. The jacket doesn’t feature water resistant zip, however, it does have a storm proof flap. It’s a stylish jacket that is adaptable to pretty much any season.
The Rockholly Short Transitional Jacket is treated with a PFC-free and environmentally sound DWR coating, which is another green tick for me. I think all outdoor clothing and equipment manufacturers have a responsibility to help crack down on the effects that production has on the earth, and I think it’s really great when brands actively choose materials that will help combat these traditional environmentally harmful processes.
I just love the minimal style of the Rockholly Short Transitional Jacket, it’s got a casual length that sits at the hip and features a dipped rear hem. The A-line shape of the jacket is really flattering and keeps it feeling feminine. Fashionable yet functional – it doesn’t get much better than that when you’re a 20-something-year-old who can’t help but be a little fashion conscious.
The Short Transitional Jacket is available in three tasteful colours: black, navy and olive. Mine is navy, and it goes with pretty much everything that I’ve tried on with it so far, which is why I just keep wearing it over and over again. With three generously sized pockets, a fully adjustable hood and cuffs, a durable matt-finish fabric and a lining which feels soft against the skin, the outdoors has never been so comfortable, practical and fashionable.
Rockholly Short Transitional Jacket verdict
I’d recommend the Rockholly Short Transitional Jacket to any woman who likes exploring, but won’t be heading off to do any technical trekking or mountaineering. It’s a lightweight, comfortable and fashionable garment that will offer great wet weather protection while still offering the breathability you need. the jacket also offers a great range of movement which helps you feel free to explore.
