    As the owner of a Pro Hunter jacket, I have to say no.

    It is perfectly adequate - warm, dry, comfortable, lots of well designed pockets.

    But it is certainly not worth the full retail price (fortunately I did not pay this).

Other than that well worth the money!

    Swedteam also worth a look.

    I like their stuff. Nice styling; ventilation zips to regulate temperature; hard-wearing fabrics; seems well-enough made (if often in China).

    But mostly I don't like shopping. There are likely better deals out there, but Harkila is easy and I know (more or less) what I'm getting. (Clothing-wise anyway. Their boots strike me as possibly more risky.)

    Cheers,
    Jeff.

    Quite simply yes.

    If you say reliable amd waterproof in a single sentence as above then say not worth the money you have obviously not bought the other ***** on the market!!!

    Dont know about clothing I cant imagine any piece of clothing to be worth 400 quid but used their roesack a lot, when the straps gave eventually I contacted Harkila and they sent replacement. This way I can see myself using their 60 quid roesack all my life

    Maybe the clothes are, but the Harkila Roe sack certainly isn't.
