The Result Performance R155J Junior is half the price of many of the children’s jackets in this review. Bargain! It comes in at a very respectable weight too and packs down small so you won’t mind carrying it for your children during dry spells. Reflective piping wraps around the whole jacket at waist level so it is easily picked out in the dark from any direction. The body has a hem drawcord to lock out draughts and a full-length front zip with an external stormflap. There are two large chest pockets that are very easy to access. The hood can be rolled down and secured at the collar, and it has a peak. The garment also contains over 25 per cent recycled materials. But the Result Performance R155J Junior’s hood is the major drawback here though as it has no adjustment at all, and the large peak could be a problem without it. Other jackets’ hoods have elastication and volume adjustment. As it is likely that the hood will be required this is a major flaw in my view.

Verdict: If the hood fits the Result Performance R155J Junior is a bargain-priced jacket, but if not then it is worth paying more.
