Have a look at anything using Pertex Shield +

I got one of these from Open As Usual when they did one of their clearance popups and it has been really solid. Material is Pertex Shield +. Used it for work and casual.

Can't actually find any pertex shield + apart from the one ypu posted, which is nice but £500 is a bit much.

Further to above


"The 'Twilight Blue' color way of the Willum Down jacket was actually cancelled before it went into production, so it was never manufactured.

It is only available in the Black and the Ivy Green color; https://www.norseprojects.com/search?search=willum%20down

The pictures you can find by searching for it on Google are pictures of a sample, and we will make sure to have it removed entirely from our website".

Copped the veilance node but unsure whether to back it or not. The hood is huge. It’s relatively big on the monitor which I like but on the node it’s almost comically big

I'm 5ft10", 72-3kg - I'm guessing I'd be a medium in this?

Gawk if you go to Sizing > Size help and measurements > Product measurements you should see specific item measurements.

Medium should be good, a lot of money to drop on a this which will likely get reduced by 30% at some point though

Last time I had a rubberised stone island it fell apart Cry Like literally came away in pieces around the hood where it folds. Sad times.

Common problem with these, been the same since they started making them… no longevity

I always think the Monitor hood is big. Doesn;t work too well here on the coast, especially in a headwind. That does look nice, but its typical Veilance aesthetic for the photoshoot, perfect lines/proportions etc. but doesn't always translate real world.

Yep Rubberised and Stone Island are not a good combination.

Must have been 2003/2005 time and it put me off the brand for a long time. I’ve said on here before their treatments look great and they have some of the best looking outerwear but I’m more than certain they are never tested properly, defo looks over function.

Cheers all - yeh, I'd only buy it in the sales, but from what everyone is saying think I'll go for a different option!

Found mine to be the same. Only suited to Mekon headed fukers.

Stone island jackets always notorious for peeling, I traveled on the night bus from Newcastle to Landan to go to woodhouse to buy the heat sensitive pink jacket, mate bought blue reflective marina… them were the days before web (1991???)
Both commented they didn’t stand up to weekenders at raindance. His gran boil washed the reflective coating of his!

I‘m looking for a new winter coat and sort of have a heavy crush on this Ten C Parka, can anyone advise on sizing especially when combining with their various liners?
Does Ten C hit the sales or worth full retail price? 1500-1800€ depending on the liner seems pretty steep Puzzled
