Thanks for that, food for thought. How do you find the sizing?I've had the smock for 2years. I only really use it on annual hill stalking in Jan and it's held up fine on both occasions since.
Waterproof is good as anything else with decent zips, hood and neoprene cuffs and the smock comes down low so keeps your middle bits dry.
It is quite thin so not sure about thorns etc but I've not put any holes in it yet.
Smock is great but not as much flexibility for venting as a jacket...
