Lots of these brands have put out retro'd pieces. This is Rab's effort.

Ah, I see. The more you know Cool
Never heard of the brand before and for me the design isn't appealing. Would take the hipster route and get a patagonia one like below

Wool / Cashmere Pea Coats? I want the Mackintosh one. Saw it in a sale for 300ish a few months ago but seems to be back up to full price on the site.

Has anyone seen a Mackintosh sale anywhere?

I ordered a Berghaus down filled jacket in the BF sales and got mocked by my 11 year old for being soooooo uncool as it wasn't The North Face

Never heard of them, it says they made that from a specific SAS request, would that be true are this brand known to be used by actual active service soldiers rather than weekend warriors?

I think they're pretty legit. They did a collab with Palace a while back too iirc

I first saw them being worn by Rob Brydon in 'the Trip' with Steve Coogan, proper ill fitting puffa, in comparison to say a lot of +j Uniqlo stuff at the time.

I wonder why people dont bother to post comments anymore that are at least informative and start off a discussion , probably because the forum is tainted by a handful of negative sarcastic pricks

seems legit, they were founded by ex special forces guy and I believe they make to sell to public but also as a direct supplier to specific military units in UK and abroad plus other organisations
As i said I only have one item but I suspect all their fits are more about practicality than fashion but the materials are great for the price point so if you need stuff for specific outdoors wear like camping, hiking or dogging could be a good shout

Not sure if they're official suppliers to the military on a commercial level but their kit is certainly worn by a lot of active service personnel.

Wise up, fuk has always been had people taking the piss out of each other, its what makes here decent. If I wanted sterile discussion about clothes I'd go to Ask Andy About Clothes.
