I was looking at this too. How thick/padded is it?

its not too padded, which imo is a good thing. its a good everyday winter jacket but in cold cold weather you'll need something else or more layers

fit wise, i'd definitely say size down

for the price its a bargain

Thanks for the advice, i get too hot in heavily padded jackets so this should do the job

Just bought a Conduct Anorak, as it was the only thing reduced! Quality looks Cool Looking forward to using this more this winter.


Has anyone had experience with Rocky Mountain Featherbed? Looking at getting a vest, or from Real McCoys, but the UK costs are ridiculous. However, I've then have been told there is a 30% tax on importing down or leather products? Anyone heard this?

After a new shell. GTX or equivalent.

Been looking at design-led brands like And Wonder and Tilak.

What other brands do similar stuff? Got too much Arcteryx stuff already

Got a Conduct last week so have been looking a lot recently. Pertex shield is a good alternative material and may give some alternative brands. I have one from Alchemy equipment which is good for work and casual. and Wander is great stuff but dear if not in sale. SVD, Matches and Deru best for sales at the mo from memory. Alpha Shadows has 30% off all new season, including Tilak.

Norse Projects? Caliroots has a code on that sends soon. Goldwin's Spur range is in sale Lazzari. About 350 euro odd.

Some pieces on Vier as well but not necessarily GTX, Juhya etc. Try 20EXTRA or EXTRA20 on sale items.

Do you want tech wear?

Yeah, it would be for hiking but handy if i could wear it around town without looking like my dad.

That Goldwin looks great but I'm not sure about the colour

Is it one of them plastic looking Rains/stutterheim things?
