All Weather Cornwall in Scruffs

Scruffs very kindly sent Si a Pro softshell jacket from their range of workwear and we decided to test it out with a coastal cliff top walk from Par to Polkerris.


Polkerris Cornwall


Si really likes the look of the Scruffs Pro softshell jacket, considering it is marketed as work wear he is happy to wear it as ‘normal’ day time clothing as well.

The jacket has a soft orange fleece-like lining, which makes it really warm despite it being thin. Perfect for the Cornish weather, as if you get too hot wearing it, it will fit really easily inside a rucksack or be light to carry. It’s actually a very bright orange colour, that my photo below doesn’t really show, but you can see the soft texture.

Cornish weather is the perfect test for any garment, as it can change in the blink of an eye from a beautiful sunny day to a grey pouring with rain one. This is why when you live in Cornwall you tend to have back-up shoes and clothing in the car no matter where you’re headed for the day.

This was exactly what happened on our walk between Par and Polkerris. On the way to Polkerris it was beautiful and bright, looking back towards Par as we walked the dark clouds were following us and splitting the sky in half. Luckily for Si, the Scruffs jacket is waterproof – you could even see the rain running off the jacket rather than being soaked in.

I’ve just realised when looking at photos to add, that the rucksack he has on in the photo is the Scruffs one we reviewed a little while ago, so just goes to show we really did love it ;)

In our experience Scruffs items are hardwearing, hardworking and good looking – much like my favourite ‘model’ here. This jacket also has decent sized pockets, plus drawstring tighteners at the bottom and velcro tighteners at the wrists, to make for a perfect fit.

We were sent Simon’s usual size of medium and it fitted perfectly, so their sizing must be pretty average which makes it easier for choosing what size to order.

For work, for cliff top hikes, or any other outdoor activity, we definitely recommend this Scruffs Softshell jacket which is currently priced at £49.95 on the Scruffs website.

    These look great. My trespass jacket is a softshell, I’d never heard of it before but I really like how light it is and still really warm.x

      Si loves it, as he hates wearing big bulky jackets when it’s not actually really cold, so perfect for him.

    We love Scruffs products and that jacket looks great – I’d clash with the orange lining! x

    This jacket looks great, my hubby could do with one as his so called waterproof coat is pretty rubbish. I love the orange fleece lining, looks really comfy xx #picknmix

    You are right about the weather changing. I remember camping in Cornwall and we had pretty much every bbq under a brollie! x

    This sounds great – it actually looks really good too, which is not always the case with waterproof coats! Think my hubby would love this as not too bulky but warm – perfect for those freezing Saturday afternoons standing on the sidelines cheering our little footballer on!! :) #Picknmix

    The jacket looks great – I love that it’s lightweight so you can roll it up, that’s the problem we always have with jackets. x #picknmix

    I’ve never heard of softshell before. I presume that’s something to do with the type of material? #picknmix
