This item “can” be worn reversible. Moreover, this item “should” be worn reversible as the two sides offer two quite different looks. The pockets go vertically on one side, for instance, and horizontally on the other. Each side is water repellent with the front woolen side being more so than the back cotton/nylon side. You will be showing off a glimpse of what’s on the other side as you go, especially when you put your collar up or roll up your sleeves.
