EDIT:OWNER REVIEW:Patagonia W's El Cap Jacket:Kathleen
- Hi Kathleen, and many thanks for a really nice review. It's pretty much all
there, I have just a few edits and a couple of questions for you and when
you've fixed these if you post back with REPOST in the subject heading, I'll
create a folder for your review.
Most people recognise the type of fleece by what I can only describe as the
'weight rating'. Patagonia describe this as a 6 oz (170 g) material which
many would then understand. Perhaps you could include this information where
I have indicated below.
It is also sometimes (wrongly) taken that if a reviewer hasn't mentioned
something it doesn't exist or it wasn't a problem, often it's because the
product worked so well they didn't notice it. But there could be someone out
there just waiting for you to tell them that, say, 'the zipper pull tab was
really efficient and never snagged once'. Perhaps you could make sure you,
briefly, include this sort of 'affirming' information. (It's not, by the
way, necessary to mention all the things a product *doesn't* have, unless of
course, they are significant omissions :)
I'm also not too keen on the unbroken block of type in your review but I
note from the review you have already uploaded to BGT that this is broken
with spacing so that should be OK.
Thanks again and I look forward to reading your REPOST,
