    I’ve got one of these:

    The cut is pretty relaxed and if you keep it proofed the front is water resistant. Quite cheep as well. The fabric is pretty tough, not likely to wear it out.

    Yes creamegg, I’ve got one of those but its circa 6 years old and about knackered. I was thinking about replacing with a better/lighter/more packable jacket and seperate gilet combo…

    Cheers tomd I’ll look into those.

    Following on from my other recent winter/wet weather gear replacement thread…… I’m looking into getting a waterproof/shower proof gilet for those cold or slightly damp days and save the new waterproof jacket for full on downpours.

    Does any one use one for mtb/off road duties? There seem to be plenty of the road riding type available but nothing mtb specific eg hard wearing, not too tight etc etc…

    Any recommendations?

    😀

    I’ve got an endura convert with the removable sleeves.

    Works pretty well up until the weather gets really bad then the gaps where the sleeves join can let a little water in. Ideal for spring, summer and most of autumn in the UK though 🙂

    I’ve got the ladies equivalent of this:

    It gets used loads and the other day saw off a couple of showers.

    As always with Gore, go a size or two larger.

    I just wear road gilets. They’re plenty hard wearing, I don’t quite understand this belief that road stuff doesn’t last.
