Gear Review: The Nobis Meredith Jacket for Women

Meredith-black“Embracing the conviction that trends may come and go, but style, function and quality, will remain forever timeless.”

Nobis certainly stayed true to their company philosophy with the Nobis Meredith outwear jacket for women. Categorized by Nobis as a “Ladies Parka,” the description hardly does justice to this ultimate winter warrior. The piece is built to handle the most extreme cold weather conditions, while still maintaining a timeless fashion design. You’ll feel cozy as if tucked in a sleeping bag, but appear as though you’ve just walked out of a catalogue. I have yet to see form and functionality exist as harmoniously as it does with The Meredith.

The versatility of this jacket seems endless, beginning with the hood. Built with several removable and/or adjustable features, the combinations meet every outdoor need. An ultra-soft layer of micro-fleece lines a duck down-filled Meredith-heather-burgandyouter hood, both of which can be easily removed or worn solo. Also included is a removable coyote fur (faux fur optional) ruff.

Moving down to the core of this knee-length coat, expect quality to the highest industry standard. Completely waterproof and windproof, this jacket is amongst the most durable on the market in their category. All seams are sealed to prevent any moisture from penetrating the outer layer, keeping you warm and dry no matter the conditions. Meanwhile, Sympatex lamination technology still allows moisture to escape from the interior. Also, there is plenty of pocket space both inside and outside the jacket to store any necessary belongings. And, as a bonus, thumb-holed cuffs make this piece extra snug and comfortable.

Overall this jacket gets two thumbs way up. Nobis truly didn’t miss a thing with The Meredith. It has something to offer for any female living, working or playing in cold-weather conditions.

  1. How would you describe the fit of this coat? A little on the larger end, or smaller? I often fluctuate between the M and L in coat sizes depending on the cut.
