Yeah, thought fuck it why not.

Nice bunch of guys and i liked a lot of their new gear that i tried on, very much my style. Got given a big box of samples too take but just took a few knits and some shorts in the end as i didn't wanna take the piss and hopefully they'll use me again. All thanks to ginge Cool

Is it the same Kestin Hare that worked for Nigel Cabourn, and then had a brand called Common People. TK Maxx have a few Common People bits on-line. Often gets reduced, and for the money is decent quality.

Nah, another Kestin Hare Laughing out loud

Aware of the brand. Some really nice stuff. Always thought this polo was a winner.

Am going to iceland for a few days early next year
Any recommendations for a jacket ? Ideally don't want to spend more than £200, as I doubt I'll get much wear
Would this be enough or do I need a proper outdoor brand?

And any recommendations? I don't ski or any of that shit, and know fuck all about sub zero weather survival Sad

The weather in Iceland is incredibly variable so I'd work with layers rather than a single big coat. It can be really windy and wet so I'd go with a down jacket underneath a gore tex shell or equivalent.

Thanks, I've got a patagonia torrentshell, and some sns herning knits.
Would I be good with a down jacket, and some uniqlo heat tech thermals?

Aye, as illwill said - layers is the way to go. You can pick up cheap thermal base layers from Sports Direct / Decathlon.

edit: don't forget long johns - and especially good socks! Cold feet is a bummer

That's fine if you're just expecting cold/snow like in Scandinavia but Iceland has like maritime weather where it could piss down and be very stormy. A do-it-all padded winter coat is unlikely to be water/wind proof enough.

Iceland's one of those places where you wish it was a bit colder than it actually is.

I have been racking my brains for weeks now finding a winter coat.

Ive had a couple of down jackets, Woolrich and Cabourn Arctic but never liked them really.

Just ordered this beast. Never had alpaca before so if I like this I may get an N1 Deck too.
