    Only thing its lacking is some waist pockets. I love this jacket though!

  2. Joe

    The best rainproof jacket I’ve ever spent my money on.

  3. Tom Brill

    I’ve got the grey jacket and it is brilliant! So tough, and it keeps me nice and dry! It is very resistant to rips compared to others on the market and still very lightweight! Love it!

  4. Christian Butler

    First class service and products, insanely quick delivery. Highly recommended.

  5. Kevin Knight

    It may be wet but the harkie waterproof saved the day outstanding waterproof technology very comfortable and breathable would recommend over any other arb jacket by far.

  6. Jacob Harvey

    Excellent jacket for them warm summer rainy days nice to wear very easy to move in and a smart looking jacket.

  7. James Nairn

    Lightweight and waterproof, flexibility great, haven’t worn my £300 gortex jacket since l got this, has been worn in some hellish weather on the northwest cost of Scotland.

  8. Bearded Climber

    I was reluctant to spend the money but have no regrets!

  9. Mark Wardle

    Love my harkie smock jacket, well fitting and works well against the rain. This is by far most the best jacket I have owned and I have been in the arb industry 37 year. Keeps wind out well and very warm ! Thanks harkie for another great product.

  10. WG Harpur Tree Services

    We love our new Defiance jackets

  11. Lee Evans

    Just to say a big thank you for the fast delivery and what an amazing product the Harkie Defiance jacket and the Harkie waterproof trousers are. I’ve done tree surgery for the past 23 years and finally I have a waterproof jacket and trouser that are fit for purpose especially with the recent whether been so wet. It seems like the development team has put a lot of thought into the wear ability and the understanding what our work actually entails. I am so pleased with the jacket I will be looking at purchasing another one for my tree surveying days and look at getting the lads geared up in them too.

    I have tried many waterproofs over the years cheap to expensive, cheap ones you sweat in, and the seams start to leak, the expensive don’t seem last longer then 3 months with our industry being so tough, fingers crossed the Defiance will but only time will tell. I will happily provide feedback positive and negative when necessary and look forward to seeing future products been developed.

  12. Johnny Steel

    Coats are brilliant. Really love them. I only wear a t shirt under and it keeps me warm and cool when working at the same time.

  13. Mel Saunders

    Its Brilliant!! I work on the railways so I had to go for the Hi-Vis Orange. I’ve been wearing it this weekend gone. Absolutely brilliant. Didn’t get wet once. Can move really well in it too as it’s not bulky like other waterproof coats. A lot of waterproofs can be quite bulky and shapeless, but I could not be happier with the defiance.

What makes the Rainblok fabric special?

Rainblok fabric is unique to Harkie, specifically manufactured to order for our waterproof garments. It meets the highest possible standards for both water penetration resistance and breathability, keeping you cool and dry all year round.

How bulky are these jackets? I want something that doesn’t restrict my movement.

We recognise the very active nature of tree surgery and with this in mind have designed our garments to fit comfortably without getting in the way of your work, allowing you to move freely. The Defiance cut has been further refined to reduce bulk and provide an optimal, ergonomic fit.

Do you offer any other colours?

Yes, we also offer the Defiance jacket in a subtle grey colourway.

Canopy Climbing Collective

Have to say your jackets are top class. I will be buying the lads new ones later in the year. I love mine

Innovation 2 Smock

I have had my Harkie Smock for seven years. Worn every wet day and it has stood up to all the abuse of arb that I have thrown at it and it is still fully waterproof.
