Pentagon Geraki Jacket Review

For the last few months, I’ve been wearing and checking out the Geraki Jacket by Pentagon. This is an ultra lightweight duck down jacket and is ideal for all kinds of outdoor activities. Over the last couple of months, we have had some super cold weather which have given me the ideal conditions to test out this jacket.

Didriksons Celine Women’s Parka Review

Just under two years ago, I got the Edge Women’s Jacket by Didriksons, which I have been wearing non-stop since then. As I mentioned previously in that review, Didriksons always create such great quality clothing, so I decided, as the weather was getting pretty wet and cold, it was time for something even thicker and suitable for this climate. Obviously, Didriksons was the first choice for this. The Women’s Celine Parka by Didriksons is such a fantastic coat, which has…
