Review of Regatta Octavia waterproof jacket
Regatta Octavia

Size 8-20. 515g. Colours: ice-cream/platinum, black, pepper/red. Foldaway hood with stiffened peak. Adjustable cuffs. Map pocket.


Good points: Flattering shape.  Warm fleecy lined pockets and good fitting hood.  Good range of  pockets inside.

Drawbacks: A small fit and too short in the body. Fabric became very wet on the outside after a downpour and took a long time to dry.  No flaps over the zips.

Rating: 77/100
Price: £65
