    I've had a rivers west smock for 3 seasons it was 80.00....working on the basis that we wont see any real cold weather the likes of the 60's
    If it gets that cold for any amount of time they put a ban on shooting wildfowl as they will be in poor condition....

    I brought it one size over as nothing worse then not being able to swing, when I break it I will buy the same type again.

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    The more times you go, there is always a chance of going home with one

    You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...

    Agree with above my go to jacket. Failing that if it looks wet then my deerhunter ram jacket.

    Never found one that's kept me warm enough. So I wear my laksen stalking jacket with an old Schoffel ptarmigan field coat over the top. With two merino wool underlayers and a good thick fisherman's jumper under the chest waders I'm usually OK

    Not sure what the new stuff is like, but I'm still wearing one from http://www.freewebs.com/weariteclothing/jackets.htm that I bought at least 10 years ago. American jackets are designed for cold dry/snowy weather with no drip strip in most cases to cope with our wet weather.

    Would highly recommend the Rivers West Kentdale Jacket, will keep you dry in any fowling weather, but definitely not a summer coat.

    Hardly ever go wildfowling now but I was always a fan of layering using low value, easy clean items. I liked army surplus gore-tex as a shell, not used it yet but the newer MTP cammo would be good being lighter than DPM. Never been a fan of 'shooting' type coats for 'fowling as the lower pockets are prone to getting wet if you kneel and sit in creeks.
