The NESSH Jacket has a fill weight of 90g per sq m. The actual fill weight of a jacket varies depending on the jacket’s size e.g. a size XS jacket would contain significantly less down than an XXL, but proportionally they are the same based on the amount of down spread across a jacket’s surface area.
Actual Fill weights for each size are listed below:
XS = 111.7g (3.94oz)
S = 119.2g (4.2oz)
M = 126.6g (4.47oz)
L = 134.1g (4.73oz)
XL = 142.1g (5.01oz)
XXL = 150.1g (5.29oz)
The jacket offers a lot of pros.
Cons for me is that the company showcases the One Sold One Given motto on the back of the jacket.
They do give away a different jacket to homeless for every jacket sold. It’s great that they do that, but it doesn’t make me want to purchase this jacket over another.
Also, the jacket they give away is different. All the information is on their website in regards to it. They are very open about why they do it and what they do.
A portion of what you pay buys another jacket? Just something to consider. I like the color variety.
Price really isn’t that different in my opinion. There is a big range, but this one isn’t so cheap that it will blow your mind. It falls into the range of them. You can find something similar in the same price range. You can also find a good deal.
To sum it all up, there really isn’t anything to complain about. It’s a jacket that offers a lot of features. My only complaint goes back to the Buy One Give One Business Model and the logo of that on the actual jacket itself. What are your thoughts?
