    Hi folks.

    Has anyone got one of these? I'm thinking of hitting the button on a grade 1 jacket priced at £45.......

    Hi mate, I’ve had one for the last 3 years or so & can’t fault it. As good as any shell type Gore Tex jacket on the market imo. Bomb proof construction & totally waterproof - although I reproof every year - with a good adjustable hood. I use mine for hiking & fishing in winter. A great jacket for the money & getting harder to find. Cheers

    Thanks buddy. Did you get a grade one jacket? Did you need to reproof it when you got it or was it ok?

    Yes, Grade 1. No, I didn’t need to reproof it when it arrived. I’ve a few Gore Tex items & generally reproof them every 12 months whether I think they actually need it or not - just habit really. Mine is as effective as any I own in the £150+ bracket. Grab it at that price, you won’t be disappointed. Cheers.
