Probably Arc'teryx ?

The QM's in Hereford is an Arc'teryx / Salomon / All Gucci Brands warehouse.

Do you have any photos?
Back then Goretex was the new material on the block, and apart from independent taylor’s most of the gear was sold by the big brands of the day such as Karrimor (in the days when they were a decent company) or Berghsus.

Berghaus gear was widely used for items like Bergen’s or yeti gaiters.

Having now seen your seen your sample pic you can ignore the above.

As they wouldn't be founded for a further 7 years that would be a tough call.

Cheers for replys, to be fair I don't know if they were Gortex here is some pictures.The badge doesn't look familiar.
Cedric Delves describes the regiment buying up all of Cotswold Camping's stock of Gore-tex and hollow-fibre jackets. Most people were in the 'standards' - Arctic windproofs, DMS and the like.

'Phoenix' brand though for the life of me I cannot remember the model ref.
 
Don't forget your Damart ladies thermal tights for that proper 1982 look.
 
Phoenix never heard of them pal.But I'm determined to get 1 lol.Thanks
WTF!!
Either you are a re-enactor with a niche role or a bellthronk. :p

Seriously, why would you want kit that is 4 decades old?
Goretex/outerwear has come on in leaps and bounds since then.

And, as you can see from the pic above, never to be seen without a bloody camera!

Hang on, are you suggesting it’s time to move on from my woolly mammoth jacket with dodo bone buttons?
