Is this Rod on the right here? Working as a model in Australia now, hence the silence

If we had to have silly, trying to be clever T-shirts, then I'd rather have this one:

Ah, thanks.

I don’t watch superhero films so those have passed me by I’m afraid.

I have literally worn nothing but Chelsea boots (with long trousers/jeans) for 25+ years, which probably makes me a very sad individual but I'm ok with that.
Four pairs in wardrobe at present (2 Superdry - black leather and grey suede, 2 unknown Kiwi brand - black suede and brown suede) plus my steel capped tan nubuck in my ute.

Talk to me about waterproof jackets.

It's been raining here 20 hours straight and I'm heading to Le Mans on Thursday morning, where you guarantee it will be throwing it down non-stop until I come home. I currently have something that is little more than a heavy duty cagoule. I need something more serious, but light enough to put into a backpack and ideally available from my local branch of Cotswold Outdoor.

I see they stock Berghaus which is a brand I've heard of - are they any good?

My favourite fabric is Polartech Neoshell so if you can find one with it, that.

I’ve got a Berghaus Gore-Tex jacket and it is very waterproof. There are different levels and mine is one down from the most “technical” but I’ve never had any leaks.

Get yourself a nice jacket by all means but if you're going to be standing about in the rain at LM strap a golf umbrella to your rucksack. You wont regret it...

I’ve got a 10 year old Berghaus that’s still waterproof. I do Nikwax wash it every couple of years.
