Aldi Ladies Gilet
Aldi Ladies Gilet

Overall rating 4/5 Stars

The Hi-Viz ladies gilet is comfortable and warm, conforming to the EN 471:2003 safety standard. There’s two handy inside zipped pockets and the outside has two standard sized pockets. The small fluorescent horse motif stamped on padded inner leaves a nice touch to a quality finished item.

The gilet is machine washable and is fitted with a trusted YKK zip making it easy to zip up, without worrying about snags or a broken gilet!

Sizes – A medium is set to fit a size 12-14, if you’re wanting to wear a jumper underneath we’d recommend getting a larger size than you would normally choose as they are a smaller fit.

Overall a very reasonably priced item, more than adequate for a afternoon hack or work around the yard helping keep your body warm.

The overall fit and feel is excellent, great for any expanding waistbands over the festive period. The material allows for plenty of stretch without loosing shape (if washed according to guidelines). The finish both inside and out is of a good standard. The Jodhpur ends are minimalist, minimising bulk under any type of yard or riding boot.

Sizes – Available in 26″, 28″, 30″ and 32″ with plenty of stretch within each size.

Overall, these jodhpurs are comfortable, well designed with plenty of stretch, warm and well finished.

 

Polo Riding Shirt RRP £12.99Polo shirt cut out
Overall rating 4/5

The Polo riding shirt is 65% cotton and 35% Polyester with a purple and black stripe designed outer. The material doesn’t give for a flexible fit, but is cut nicely for the more fashion conscious equestrian.

This attractive, brightly striped Polo hoodie with embroidered arm and motif will be a great addition to any winter wardrobe. The inner side of the neck rim is finished with velvet adding to comfort. The hoodie has a good sized hood with pull ties that actually work, finishing the look and usability nicely. Smooth fleece inner that withstands washing at recommended temperature which helps keep you warm.

Sizes – Minimal stretch so allow for this when choosing top

Overall a nicely designed, snug fit hoodie. Could do with a little more stretch.
