Extract: Practical test

A specialised work-jacket for film and TV crew members (photo with director Sönke Wortmann as 'model') has been developed by Hamburg fashion designer Heike Hüning, and presented for the first time at Cinec. Since then I have been giving it a thorough testing at work.
  The outer-jacket is made of Gore-Tex "Basel³ 2-layered laminated, a particularly robust Gore-Tex material. Despite the incredible robustness the material is pleasantly soft and quieter than stiffer materials – an advantage when on a shoot where sound is being recorded. My test jacket was matt black for good reason, but the jacket is available in other colours. The removable inner-jacket is made of Gore-Windstopper "Glacier³ 3-layered laminated, a downy material like fleece, but which breathes while also being wind-proof.  On outdoor shoots this combination offers first rate protection against the cold, wind and rain.  When you are standing around for hours on end it keeps you warm, and during hard physical work it allows body perspiration to dry without letting the body cool. With this in mind, the jacket has a longer cut than normal hiking jackets, providing the lower body with extra protection. Apart from excellent protection against the elements the jacket offers numerous practical functions, like a detachable walkie-talkie pocket, a shoulder-mike loop on the left shoulder, an unzippable Windstopper lined reversible hood, large outside pockets, miscellaneous inside pockets, also in A4 size, and arm pockets for writing utensils and mobile phones.
  All important seams are water tight and all zips are from Swiss company Riri and are the best in the world. The jacket complies to Euronorm 343, regarding weather protection for clothes, and is therefore eligible, as work clothes, to be deducted against tax. There are both a male and female, as well as long and short cuts available. The jacket is produced by Fuchs und Schmitt in Aschaffenburg. The price is €479.
