Good Lightweight Jacket, Recommendations Please ?

#1
I`m looking to buy a new lightweight jacket for hill walking and rough shooting , needs to be at least shower proof , green / khaki but prefer not to have DPM / cammo , must be breathable as well , I dont feel the cold much so insulation not essential , any recommendations ?

Have a shufti at Paramo - their green kit is non-rustle, lightweight and pretty much the mutt's nuts. I'm a convert to their stuff.

Ventile from Hilltrek, Paramo "naturally" which is there subdued green stuff (I have the Velez smock for fishing/shooting) or Hilltrek are not doing a ventile covered (so its thorn proof) Analogy jacket. Analogy is the stuff Paramo make their kit from..so the best of both worlds.

I've got one of the "mythical" Sass ventile jackets, ******* love it, wear it hot, cold and wet.

I don't think they exist any more but googling ventile jacket should bring up a few manufacturers that do them.

For the hill or even woodland in winter I use Nomad stealth fleece.

I've got a Paramo Pajaro jacket; it wasn't cheap - it set me back 250 notes in 2008 (IIRC they are now £270) but it proved it's worth bear-watching in an unseasonably cold Sweden in the May of that year. I keep it as part of my wildlife watching gear and it is a superb bit of kit.
