My new rowing jacket got an ergonomics trial today. Happily, given the dreary weather forecast, the sun was out and the wind was light.
All went well. There is no flap over the zip so my thumb did not get caught, though the unfamiliar blades meant I scraped my hands a bit and bled all over.
The sleeves are long enough to allow me to go forward adequately and it kept the wind out nicely, even over the vital rear area left uncovered by so many jackets.
So a success. Its waterproof qualities will be tested another day.
Can anyone guess where I was, though?
