Where To Buy The Geographical Norway Abraham Jacket?
Here is a list of the various online shops from different countries where you can purchase the jacket:
When To Wear It
Being a winter jacket, weather-wise this design is more suitable for mid to late winter wear, when the days are dry and the temperatures drop considerably.
This is a quilted jacket, which means that it is also padded for added insulation, which is essential in winter jackets.
Looks-wise, it is quite a stylish design, which comes without a hood and with a high, stand-up collar. Its sleeves are also quilted and padded and the sleeve cuffs are elasticized and long, which helps provide a better fit, as well as better insulation due to preventing the cold form the outside from getting through.
A design detail, which also helps to reinforce the shoulders, are the faux leather patches on both sides. This same detail can also be found on the side pockets, which are not solely for storage but are also lined inside to quickly warm up the hands.
It has an elasticized and ribbed lower hem, that, just like the sleeve cuffs, helps with ensuring that the jacket stays in place and that it is also closed off from the cold.
Another thing that catches the eye is the removable teddy fleece trim inside the collar. This is a warm lining that helps keep the neck warm and it can be taken off if you prefer. The collar is also adjustable with straps in front and it closes up by the central zipper.
This is a mildly weather resistant jacket and as such, it is better suited for cold and dry weather.

Being a padded jacket, similarly to other jackets of this style, it is insulated with polyester padding, which helps trap warm air and maintain a comfortable and cozy temperature.
This is not the most breathable design and as such it should be used as a casual, daily jacket rather than an outdoor activity one.
We have mentioned this in other single reviews: Geographical Norway and several other brands have a limited color range, especially when it comes to men’s jackets. Such is the case with Abraham, which is available in two colors:
User Reviews, Feedback & Opinions
As you will see in every other single review of ours, we pay a lot of attention to online user reviews and feedback. While we can discuss features and technicalities all day long, how well a jacket actually performs is directly linked to the experience of those that have tried it.
Because of this, we make sure to remain fair and unbiased, while properly representing the opinions and experiences of those that have worn any of the jackets we review.
In the case of Abraham, online reviews are a bit mixed, but overall the score is decent.
The design and comfort are this jacket’s best qualities as it looks great in person and it is indeed a very stylish design that you can wear comfortably with pretty much any outfit. It is also a good fit, once you get the size right, and it’s indeed warm and cozy for winter wear.
The teddy fleece is a bit tricky to put on and off but once you get the hang of it, it’s quite a comfortable, soft and warm lining that really helps when it’s too cold outside.
That’s it for its selling points, now let’s take a look at the critics’ reviews. Being the price it is, this jacket is a hit or miss in terms of quality.
While some reviewers had issues with the overall quality, such as threads sticking out or the zipper being a bit too stiff, the rest did not really find any problems with the quality, so make of that what you will.
Another issue is the size, as we said above, because this jacket tends to run large, so you may want to go down a size.
Overall Abraham delivers what it promises as it is a warm and comfortable jacket. It comes at a pretty affordable price, considering that it is a quilted jacket, but keep in mind the size issue and definitely take a look at the reviews before you make a decision.
