Is the coat quiet or does the material make a lot of noise when moving ?
I know it is a daft question, but had a waterproof jacket provided by work many years ago and it made so much noise it was terrible.

It seems fairly quiet, Mike. A low rustle, perhaps.

Rightly or wrongly, I prefer good Goretex or equivalent jackets from the likes of Cotswold rather than stuff from the tackle trade, but like Steve Reed I am also seeking some good quality salopettes, so I'd also be grateful if anyone could recommend any.

Jason.

That seems a ridiculously inflated RRP. Loads of basic Gortex around that price.

I tend to get the German Army Gortex at about £35 plus US Army Polar Vest around £12.new.
Add a fleece and/or thermal trousers if needed.

All cheap enough if you tackle barbed wire.

I did buy the jacket Graham, however I sent it back as the fit is for slim athletic people which I'm not.

Your paying more simply because of the shimano badge and I guess the market it was aimed at was perhaps cycling.

I agree army is best value for money though.

Bargain Alert.

On Ebay US Army Polar undershirt 12.99 New.

Just arrived and seems same or better than Sundrige Sleepsuit at 3 times the price.

Have a look at the Cabelas website its in the USA, but ship world wide, i can vouch for the quality of both the lined (very warm) and unlined items, very soft MT50 fabric, and Gore-Tex too, i didn't think it was too expensive, but what you pay generally dictates what you get....

P.S. The 7 in 1 Jacket is brilliant!

I suppose if you are unfortunate enough to live in the north I could perhaps see reason in the 7 in 1 jacket...but your from Cambridge!

If you order gear from outside the EU, the USA for example, do you have to pay VAT + a handling charge when it arrives?

Thanks

Stephen
