I was teasing Richard. Glad to see you happy up there and not pining for the "softie south."
I know. It's just very few people realise the bit east of Inverness is ridiculously dry! The winter here was non existent and I had my 'warm' jacket on only to stand around. Adventures ahead. This could be just the ticket.
Finished " Rain-Dogs"...waxed cotton .
A couple of mods have gone into this one.
Velcro cuffs and kanga pouch rain deflectors.
I have fabric for two more...
Due to the extra work the price has gone up a touch
Price £70 unlined or £75 with the hood wool lined to your door in the UK
If your interested let me know
Which lucky guy got that to complete his layering system?
Another question from the dry bit east of Inverness : what's waxed cotton like near fires made by enthusiastic Scouts?
AND are there likely to be any more ventile dogs?
All the best.
If the scouts are setting fire to you its time to get another hobbie..
As for the Sass ventile pm me
Cracking bit of kit.
Just a quick update on my waxed cotton Rain-dog. I have been away for the last 2 weeks on the west coast of Scotland and we have had quite a bit of rain, my Rain-dog was worn most days and for some of those days for quite a long period of time. The smock did not let me down at all it coped brilliantly with torrential rain and drizzle alike far better than Goretex or other so called waterproof coats, and I have owned many of these as well.
The smock is relatively light weight so ideal for when the weather is warm.
The only slight criticism that I had for the smock was that depending on which way the wind was blowing the pocket had a tendency to collect water nothing that couldn't be sorted out with a storm flap, also the sleeves could perhaps do with Velcro adjusters so that they don't bellow in the wind I do understand that this would put the price up a bit but that would be well worth the extra cost.
if you haven't got one of these smocks then you definitely need to get one.
The "Twodogs" weather sheild.
I started making these as a windproof and waterproof layer to cover the Twodogs wool bushshirt in the worst weather.
Improvements on the early sheild ...fold away rain deflectors on the kanga pouch and velcro cuffs
Waxed cotton unlined with an un-lined hood £70
Waxed cotton unlined with a wool lined hood £75
I have the fabric for one more at this time
Message me if your interested
Making now folks
I have a question, do your ears get cold in them shorts!
seriously, great modelling job Martin, I have contacted the man accordingly.
Cheers Adam.... I think
Haven't used them in the layered system yet; but the weather is changing.
OOOOOOya nearly slipped up there, I have just had to send another PM and add four inch's on to allow for the layers. thanks Martin.
if only it was that easy in real life to add four inch's to other area's!
sorry Cliff, I don't mean to mess you about, I wont forget so when I next see you at the campfire I will bring you a little treat.
no problem mate
Arrived today, absolutely loveleh job Cliff
Ordered some more fabric so these will back back soon
What a fantastic weekend to coincide with taking ownership of a Rain-Dogs!
I've had mine on all day, and needed it too. Wet legs, but the 5.11 Taclites dry quickly enough for it not to be a problem in these temperatures. A very good bit of kit.
I asked Cliff to make the cuff a bit wider than usual* to allow me to roll the sleeves up in the rain ~ a bit of temperature control for times of exertion . Works like a dream!
* I provided the required measurement based on a cuff I knew I could roll up
He's nice like that.
