Thread: Rivers West clothing?

  1. #1

    Question Rivers West clothing?

    Anyone used the Rivers West clothing?

    I would be interested in what you think to the 10 year waterproof claim and the durability of the products?

    Here is a note I wrote to them the other day. "I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know how awesome your products are. I have just returned from Scotland where my jacket got a proper wet weather test. On our final day up we got stuck on top of the hill with the rain hammering down. All the others took up shelter behind various rocks. I decided to test the gear, after one hour of sitting on top of rock in rain I can only compare to being in a shower I was still as dry as a bone. Cracking kit, well done."

    Errr it was the Lynx Jacket which is actually for ladies.

    The sales man at bush wear managed to convince me into trying it as it was all they had in stock.

    It is not cut for a lady at all so I kept it and I have not looked back at all.

    Hi Simon - I've got a Field Pro smock; in kept the water out when I got my kids to turn the hospipe on to test it....they weren't shy in trying to drench me and I had a pale T-shirt on underneath so any ingress would be easy to spot......bone dry underneath. Very waterproof, warm and windproof: up to now, seems like a 160 quid well spent.

    This is good to hear chaps!

    I have just ordered a smock and trousers (in Max-4) from John Forsey. I had done some searches on the site and all seemed positive, but it was worth a check.

    I have orderd the Max-4 as I also do some wildfowling too and have found the old wetlands pattern jacket I have a real boon while stalking. It is the only jacket I have worn where deer have come up and sniffed me. I like the colouring, a lot. It seems to fade into just about anything. The only problems with my old jacket (LL Bean) is that it is too warm and not very breathable. They have cold winters in Maine!

    I have heard good reports about Rivers West, but it is nice to know that people are actually using the stuff and finding it worthwhile. Thank you.

    I was at Mike Dickinson's range the other day and he had a stalking cancellation which I took up. I hadn't got all my kit with me so Mike lent me a pair of Rivers West trousers and they were fantastic, we were lying out on a fairly open Peak District hillside in a sharp breeze and I felt perfectly warm in them. They were also a nice fit and well made. Can anyone tell me who are the UK retailers of this kit please?
