Do you know what they call mail in England? Royal(e) Mail
Great Britain might not have had a pony express but their Royal Mail service did have Royal origins in a Royal Male. Everyone's favorite Adulterous King of England, Henry VIII. Old Henry managed to appoint a Master of Post when he wasn’t busy annulling his marriages. This later grew into the Postmaster which became the Royal Mail we know and love today.
Given England's typical gloomy weather, these full zip 100% Polyester Fleece jackets are the perfect insulating layer for a crisp English afternoon. The cozy collar and adjustable hem keep you nice and warm during any planned mail deliveries. Just make sure what you are delivering is an actual letter. The Industrial Revolution and its consequences and all… The added D-Ring on the chest is a handy spot to clip your keys and flashlight while the reflective piping keeps you visible so you can flex on the local UPS and Fedex couriers with your Royal Drip. God Save the

It’s good. Good quality, doesn’t smell bad. It runs a bit small, though.
This jacket is no joke. The synthetic fleece material is thick and heavy, the zippers are robust, and the construction overall is solid. The two outer pockets zip shut and there are two large interior pockets, each of which is actually divided into two pockets. The ones closest to the body have simple hook-and-loop closures. So, this jacket effectively has six pockets, four of which are quite large.
For reference, I ordered the Medium, which fits me perfectly. I am 5'8" and about 165 lbs with a slender build. The roomy fit will accommodate layers. This would make a truly fantastic jacket for cool to cold weather. The bright red color and reflective piping would make this a fine choice for riding my Honda Metropolitan around town.
I highly recommend getting this excellent and surprisingly functional jacket.
