Last night it poured with rain in London and hence I found myself unintentionally road testing the B&C Spray jacket. The sample we had in the office was a bright red, size large and – whilst a little on the big side for me – this jacket bowled me over with its quality and, more importantly after nearly two hours in driving rain, my suit beneath was bone dry. Normally these kind of jackets are simply ‘splash-proof’, but according to my catalogue this jacket is made from “100% Heavy Taslan Waterproof Nylon”. Well I don’t have a clue what ‘Taslan’ is, but the coat certainly kept me dry!
There were also other touches of quality that impressed me. The mesh lining for example, and the contrast colour full-length placket that prevent water seeping in behind the zip. From an embroidery point of view, the jacket has a bottom inner zip which allows an embroidery machinist easy access to decorate the garment.
Overall I really rate this jacket. Lightweight, waterproof and it actually has some style (rare for most of the products in our industry). B&C is a brand of the Cotton Group, a Belgium promotional clothing manufacturer. We will certainly be taking a closer look at their jacket range in the future.
As for availability, you can get these jackets in Cream, Black, Red, Dark Grey, Ice Blue and Navy and in sizes from Small to XXL.
