well guys this basically stems from the "nomad smock" thread
a gentleman posted the link below for clearance clothing and the item is a ridgline roar euro jacket
ive been thinking bout a swazi or the like since i got totally drenched whilst flanking out on the angus glens on a grouse day.....decided that i really need to save and get decent kit
well in the interim whilst im saving i looked at this link whilst reading the nomad smock thread and agreed with other postings that for 99 quid it was worth a gamble.
well it arrived and i was out up the glens yesterday again flanking on the grouse shoot and it got a rather good testing!!!! it was pissing down
well i was bone dry, it looks nice too and some people actually commented that it resembles a swazi wapiti ...similar looking and feel of material...pockets are good.....hood is good.
it isnt as windproof as i may have thought and therefore today i wore a fleece underneath and it was so windy you couldnt stand hardly on top o the hill...bloody mental!!!! and the jacket was ace
im no looking for a thin micro fleece or similar to wear beneath it.
i think this works out better coz it allows layers for thermal protection when colder but figure i can use the jacket too when its milder with less underneath
all in all it aint a swazi or namod or similar
but i took a gamble for 99 quid and its well worth it!!
