This one has been alluding me for a long time. I'm sure the ideal option is to cough up and pay £200-£300 on Goretex something or other. But I'm tight and absolutely refuse to do that.
My Dhb windproof handled the summer valiantly, but last weekend when temps were closing down on zero, the winds were howling and the rain was travelling sideways: the resulting dampness took its toll. So it's time...
Time to get my wallet out, and spend, say £50
Ideally, I would plan to have it in my pocket most of the time. Just need it to keep the rain out when it falls. I got an Aldi jacket last year, or the year before and it's just not packable so you have to boil the entire ride. I can live with it if it's just as and when necessary.
Was thinking about going for another DHB jacket (they do seem to be very good for budget clothing) but fancy something different as I seem to be picking up a lot of DHB stuff!
I'm built like a current day Eddy Mercxk rather than a race weight Eddy Mercxk, so no racing snake attire, please.
