Mountain warehouse jacket

Postby rmurphy195 » 7 Oct 2017, 4:44pm

A heads-up ...

Found one of these a couple of days ago in their Gloucester Keys shop https://www.mountainwarehouse.com/runni ... px/yellow/

Feels like a decent enough Winter jacket for the price, worth a look if you are in need of one - probably see them in your local branch

Obviously haven't worn it in freezing weather yet though!

I've had one of these for the past couple of years at least, although in a nicer shade of blue (I think it's called cobalt). Good jacket, very warm & windproof and initially pretty showerproof. As it has aged the waterproofness has worn off quite a bit despite using the reproofing solution.

Luckily I very recently noticed a NOS blue one on E-bay and 'best offered' £20 which was accepted. It is very hard to find the blue one now although the red one is still available here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mountain-Ware ... SwuLZY31t-

I've been up Ben Nevis in October & Ben MacDui in March in mine and remained pretty toastie.....I wasn't on the bike though!! The only downside I would say is that you can get pretty sweaty if you keep it fully zipped up. Good jacket, especially for £20,

All the best, Simon
