Purchase: I needed a new show jacket as the one I was wearing didn't fit very well - when I put my arms out as if I were doing a crest release over jumps, it felt like the back of my jacket was going to split open. I wanted a hunter green jacket (my favourite colour) and Sigma is one of the few companies that make show jackets in that colour now. I paid around $120 Cdn for the jacket from Picov's in Ajax, Ontario.
Likes: It fits beautifully. It's nice to have a jacket that looks proper, whether I'm standing on the ground or sitting in the saddle. I can crest release until my arms fall off, and the jacket doesn't interfere at all. The jackets lining is black. I've seen some show coats with colourful lining (ie: red or pink or whatever) but I think that the extra flash of colour could be distracting to a judge. The black is nice and subtle.
Dislikes: I can't think of anything that I dislike, really. I'm considering shortening the arms a touch, but I need to do that with almost anything I buy as I've got a petite build.
Quality: Regular length wool / polyester / spandex show coat. The 3 buttons on the front are all securely stitched and even, and the rest of the stitching looks good. Sigma provides 2 extra buttons with the coat in case you lose one (1 for the front, and one for the sleeves).
Summary: I finally got a hunter green jacket that fits so I'm happy. And I didn't have to break the bank to get it..
