Hello,

FYI I have em him but didn't reply to em but I am trying to get an outside opinions . I also em him today regarding availibilty of my size req'd.

I have severeal british smocks including gortex parka however what I am finding with this eqpt is there seems to be a coat for every season.

I live in Canada minus 31 Celsius this Jan 09. I want something that provides layering other than gortex. Something with zipps to dump heat when req'd. This Parka has that feature.

I like the fleece pocket system and mesh pocket system on the above mentioned.

I have an CF Extreme Cold Parka dated 1984 but there are better systems out there including gortex.

Jasper is great to deal with for sure!

Thanx in advance

Rob

The smock, like all(?) of our new smocks , is poly/cotton. Needs waterproofing as the proofing goes after a few washes.

-31 C? Er, not quite so extreme where I have used it but for an outer layer over a warmlayer? Why not? Great piece of kit.

if you wash it in Nikwax Tech Wash it wont have that effect.
