Mine is Canadian. Rabbit fur and fox tail.

So not only made for proper cold weather, but not made by a bunch of depressive alcoholics.

Like your face.

I still fancy the 66 North parka I mentioned two ruddy years ago! It would till be too warm though and although it's been reduced again! They only have one size left unless the shops have stock.

I'd worry about buying from Blacks in case, you know, stolen...

I recently bought a really good north face soft shell. Not exciting but superb at being a north face soft shell.

Yes but you won't like it, being a coatvert and all. First new coat in a couple of years or so. Really pushing the boat out obviously.

I'm going to watch a rally next week in Cumbria. Unfortunately I don't have the right jacket, my down parka, though easily warm enough isn't waterproof. Any of the wool ones are probably neither warm enough and definitely not waterproof. And my layering systems are made for walking rather than standing watching cars go past. To this end I've ordered a cheap waxed jacket to see how I get on with them. It's twenty actual pounds, at full price. Is it going to explode or give me AIDS or something?

Surely you should be decked out in something bright blue with '555' all over it?

I went to Scotchland a few years ago and forgot to take an outdoor coat. I saw a wax jacket in a garden centre for this same scarcely credible price of £20.
Quite unbelievably it is perfectly functional and has been my permanent fishing coat ever since. Other than it not being particularly warm, Ive yet to find any noticeable differences from human-priced wax jackets. I am oddly chuffed with it.

Not really because I'm just going to take my Godson and I don't think it would impress him that much. I'm certainly not getting up at 5AM on a Saturday, then standing in a forest for fun! And thanks for dampening my enthusiasm even more by making me realise what kind of cnuts will be there.

It's a company I've never heard of that seems on the face of it to be a traditional outdoor UK clothing company. So hopefully the same.

No, as I've heard of Cotton Traders. It's these people. And I'd go as far as to say if it's any good I might even try a shirt.

I'm not impressed by my Barbour at all. Two winters in and the cuffs are fraying and the lining is looking saggy. The only boon is the furry 'snap-in' lining I have for it that makes it really warm. By contrast I've got a 16-year-old Belstaff that is just about at the 'patina of noble rot' stage.

Ha, my Belstaff is fcuked but my Barbour is utterly impermeable. It's passed the D-clothes destruction test.

I tried to use my Belstff as an 'about town' motorbike jacket (what with it being a motorbike jacket) but that seems to have fcuked it's delicate Italian construction.

Mine is quite old (circa 1999/2000) so maybe it's made of sterner stuff. More Roman than Italian perhaps?

That jacket looks fantastic value moles. I'd try one myself if I didn't have a houseful of Barbours.

How can that coat be produced and sold profitably for £20?

Look out for children's fingernails accidentally sewn into the seams.
