Result Performance R150J 2010

For £25 you get a lot of jacket as the Result Performance R150J has a fleece lining stitched inside, unlike anything else featured here. This makes it warmer than the others and therefore ideal in winter. The fabric feels pretty robust too. The front zip gets a double stormflap to keep the wind and rain out, while two huge pockets would be ideal for warming wee hands on a cold winter’s day. The hood has a volume adjuster and can be rolled into the collar. There are reflective tabs on the front of the jacket too. This jacket is a good choice for winter. But the biggest problem with the Result Performance R150J is that the jacket is heavy and bulky – which is a real drawback if the parent ends up carrying it all day! It is also very warm, which is great in winter, but not ideal for warmer weather. A separate fleece and waterproof would offer a more flexible approach. There is not much scope to fine-tune the fit either as there is no hem drawcord or cuff adjustment.

The Result Performance R150J is a low-priced kids’ jacket that is ideal for cold days, but as it is heavy and has a fleece lining it will probably not be ideal for warmer weather.
