OK, At no point did I see myself writing this……. Regatta have only gone & done it again. I’ve had a total change of view having spent the weekend wearing the Regatta Acadia Down-Touch padded jacket. Unthinkable less than a week ago I’d never consider a Padded Jacket, Now I’m a convert!
So, what didn’t I like about the idea? Basically the whole padded jacket look, the concept that something so think was an outdoor jacket, That technology might be a good thing, I enjoyed being a luddite! “Get yourself a proper outdoor coat” was the mantra….. But here we are!
Fabric: The Acadia jacket features
- Polyamide outer with polyester padding
- Polyester taffeta lining
Waterproof: The Acadia jacket is classified as showerproof

Warmth: The Acadia Down-Touch jacket took me by surprise. It was freezing out there, the wind was howling & the wind chill was biting and guess what? I was warm!
This wasn’t meant to happen, A warm outdoor jacket that doesn’t involve a full fleece lining? That can’t be right! What witchcraft is this that’s making it all work?
