I took up the sale offer from GO for some hedgehogs after trying them on in millets and thinking they felt very nice.
When i got them through the post they did fit perfect but i couldn't help noticing the goretex lining was sort of scruntched up by the toe area effectively ridging the material a bit and you could feel it through my normal socks.
The ones i tried on in the shop were with thicker socks so maybe that is why i didn't notice.
Just got mine from tiso with a 9% cashback from quidco
Didn't get to try it only unfortunately as no store near me stocks them. And i really like the guys from tiso, extremely helpful and quick service plus they had blue which i prefer to black and red.
Anyway, the jacket itself looks well made, no stray stitching and fits really nice. I went and tried on a mica which i thought was the closest match. I knew the mica was a slimmer fit but medium turned out a good choice for me at 5ft10 and just under 12stone.
So i ordered a medium aegis and it fits REALLY well. The Angel Wing design gives really nice flexibility and the cut is really good, medium cut, defiantly not as "athletic" as the mica which is practically light and slim enough to be a wind shirt.
I would say the mica would be much better suited to running as i thought i could run in my aegis and i probably still will if needed.
I preferred the closer cut to the neck and head of the aegis and mica compared to some Rab jackets i tried on which i found needed a fair bit of adjustment and found the collars peaking too high. I tried on the Alpine and the new momentum rab jackets and wasn't impressed when i got the zip stuck on the rab and for something like £160 i wasn't that impressed with the build quality on first impressions.
The Aegis is typically marmot waist length too so don't expect much coverage below the waist. Suits me better do give better flexibility.
The most important part, the WP and breathability hasn't been tested yet but i'm going away soon where the jacket will be given a good testing.
My only reservations are about the zips, the main zip does have a stiffened protective flap but i'll see how i go with the pocket zips.
Providing it does well in the WP department which i'm sure it will be fine in, i think i've found a really good jacket for the money, possibly for 3 seasons too!
Oh! and the zip is a left handed zip, feel like a woman! Why!
