Jackets And Waterproofs

sprayway-hallin-softshell-hoody-p16060-227662 image 21st Sep 2023 Sprayway Hallin Jacket Review

Having owned this jacket for a couple of months over the summer it is now seeing increasing use as the temperatures fall and the wind and rain picks up. Such is the versatility of a decent...

Screenshot 2020-11-05 at 14.00.08 5th Nov 2020 Montane Prism Jacket

Love this jacket. It very confidently treads the right line between a smart jacket I am happy to wear to work or out in town, as well as my go to choice for cragging and being out and about...

Sprayway Salen Jacket 7th Jun 2019 Sprayway Selen Jacket

You know when your coat is comfy and lightweight when you realise you are still wearing it hours after getting home (I have a cold house).  The Sprayway Selen is a lightweight, simple but...

Ajax 5 20th Sep 2018 Review - Ajax Waterproof Jacket from Montane

Montane Women’s Ajax Jacket Review I’ve had my previous waterproof jacket for 15 years before it fell apart, I know this is likely past most manufacturers expected lifetimes for a jacket,...

Berghaus Ridgemaster 23rd May 2018 Berghaus Ridgemaster Jacket

The Ridgemaster is a medium-weight waterproof jacket suitable for the harshest weather. It's a GORE-TEX membrane so works as you'd expect to keep the rain out, but also keep you ventilated....

Berghaus Pro Bib Shell Pant 17th May 2018 Berghaus Pro Bib Shell Pant

Let's get some terminology sorted out first. Bib is an Americanism for salopettes, which is in turn European. Dungarees is now a pretty old fashioned term. Essentially they are all the same...

VauDe Escape Kids Pants 19th Dec 2017 Kids Escape Pants - VAUDE

Kids waterproof trousers come and go in our family pretty quickly. When they were younger we bought pair after pair of cheap, thin, no-frills versions for a few quid. They'd last a few months...

Montane Minimus Stretch Jacket 3rd Nov 2017 Montane Minimus Stretch Jacket

Weighing in at 257g  this is definitely in the realm of lightweight waterproof jackets. It's made from a very thin Pertex with the usual and expected properties of being waterproof, windproof...

Snip20171031 1 31st Oct 2017 Kids Escape Light Jacket II - VAUDE

I've said it in numerous previous reviews, but  I will say it again; too many of us kit ourselves out with funky technical kit, but neglect our kids. VAUDE produce a decent range of junior...

Berghaus Fastpacking Extrem Shell 12th Jun 2017 Berghaus Fastpacking Extrem Shell

Part of Berghaus's Extrem lightweight range the Fastpacking Shell retails at £170 and weighs 250g. 250g for a fully waterproof jacket suitable for extreme mountain weather is impressive. It...

Vaude Larice 5th May 2017 VauDe Men's Larice Jacket

Weighing in at just 270g this isn’t the lightest fully waterproof  jacket on the market, but it's a decent contender. It has been designed for ski touring, but obviously will work for any...

Snip20161202 4 9th Dec 2016 Polaris Pack Me Jacket & Torsion Shirt

All of this week I've been reviewing Polaris Bikewear suitable for the winter (Monday - Cadence Bob Tights, Tue  - RBS Overshoes, Wed - Blitz Gloves, Thu - Windsheer Windproof Jersey).  As it's...

Montane Minimus Hybrid Jacket 11th May 2016 Montane Minimus Hybrid Jacket

I sadly left my last winter jacket at a service station and it has not been since. My requirements in a winter jacket are as follows: first and foremost it needs to be warm and waterproof; it...

Berghaus Hypershell Waterproof Jacket 6th May 2016 Berghaus Hypershell Waterproof Jacket

Weighing in at 100g this is now one of my lightest bits of kit. It’s waterproof, though I wouldn’t choose to wear it for full day out in the hills, and windproof, and very, very packable. It...

Inov8 - RERACPANTU 5th May 2016 Inov-8 Race Elite Racepant

If you’ve ever done a fell race that requires full waterproofs then you’ll know that those waterproofs need to be fully taped along the seams. I have a few pairs of very lightweight waterproof...

Salomon Fastwing 18th Apr 2016 Salomon Fast Wing Hoodie

I recently arrived at my folks house after a long bike ride. My Dad asked where my waterproof was so I tossed him the little tennis ball sized stuff-sack that contained the Salomon Fast Wing...

SealskinzSocks 23rd Jun 2015 Sealskinz Socks

I'd heard mixed reviews about Sealskinz socks. Some said they work, some said they don't. Essentially the are waterproof socks. They keep the water out by means of a Goretex-like membrane which (,...

Berghaus Ilam Jacket 29th Apr 2015 Berghaus Ilam Down Jacket

The Berghaus Ilam jacket is probably the fourth or fifth down jacket I've owned over the years, but is my favourite. It's not a big fat one for hanging around base camp in, but a more...

Salomon Bonatti Jacket 21st Apr 2015 Salomon Bonatti WP Jacket

I got the Bonatti to replace a well-aged Mountain Hardware Quark jacket. The Quark jacket had some good features, but its durability had let it down a little, it currently has no material between...

XKitPNG 1st Apr 2015 X-Kit Jacket - Preview

Am pleased to say that I've had a sneak preview of this jacket. Looks amazing. I love the cost point and the PDF download option of the pattern. My Mum will be hard at work producing these for the...

Sprayway have been well established as one of the UK’s leading outdoor brands for more than 40 years building, over that time, a level of trust in the overall quality of their wide range of...

Didriksons Slaskeman Kids Set 20th Nov 2014 Didriksons Slaskeman Kids Waterproof Set

These are a basic and sturdy set of children’s waterproofs, ostensibly designed for sailing. The waterproofs come in funky, gender neutral colours - in this case a bright green jacket and...

Rab - atmos jacket quince 3rd Nov 2014 Rab Atmos Maya Jacket

Introduction I'll dispense with the intro about lightweight gear as it's a recurring theme in many of my reviews. Suffice to say that this one fits the bill neatly. A minimalist waterproof jacket...

Rab Boreas Pull On Breaker 20th Oct 2014 Rab Boreas Pull-on Jacket

Introduction If you've read any of my other reviews you'll know that I am a keen advocate of lightweight kit. The Boreas Pull-on is just that. Weighing just 259g and packing down into a fist...

Rab neutrino endurance jacket smoke-z 4th Aug 2014 Rab Neutrino Endurance Down Jacket

Introduction For years I've sat around camp fires wearing various thermals, fleeces and jackets, but I've never had a properly warm down jacket. I managed for a few years with a light weight...
