Received e-mail yesterday. Excellent value and I'll probably take up on offer. I think I should point out to all the way I read it. It is offering a massive reduction of 54.62% off the normal price which would reduce it by £43.70 to £36.30. Less if you serve BFPO and get tax free(?(
 
Regarding these jackets, are they good? I know RVOps don't sell much pap, but are these worth investing in over, say, a softie? Or a buffalo?

Opinions?

I don't have this jacket but I do have their Extreme jacket and it's the best bit of kit I own. I have only had it a few weeks though so it's not gone through rigorous testing. Wore it in the recent snow with nothing but a Lifa underneath and I was sweating like a paedophile in Mothercare.

Really well built and has a feel of quality.

The sizes seem to run a little small so it might be worth ordering one size up...

I have a montane jacket, the extreme smock version, they are def an excellent piece of kit. I choose it over a buffalo as not only was it slightly cheaper (I payed around £80 for mine) but they are apparently warmer and come with a hood, as opposed to the buffalo which will sting you another £20-30 for a hood depending where you get it. I've only used mine for a bit of camping and in the snow there but any time I've used it I can only manage to wear a t-shirt or thin shirt underneath to stay comfortable!
 
I have used a montane extreme for many years which is an excellent bit of kit. Just purchased one of the toasty jackets from RVOPs. At this price you can't afford to pass up such a bargain!!

That's exactly right.

It should be selling for £43.29 posted, not £50.69 posted.


I know I'm being quite tight, but they should sort it out.

I phoned them and they said the error was with the discount percentage, and not with the checkout price..

A bit of a maths screw up by a young staff member apparently. The discount is down to £43 odd, so a (100 - 54)% discount. Apologies from the guys at RVOps but let's face it, it's a damned good price regardless of 54% / 46% . Sorry for the duff info. BTW I think they have this on until Monday morning.
 
Bit the bullet and, despite being poor, purchased one. Very much looking forward to receiving it and will post on here once I've had a chance to check it out.

Saving money at rv ops ? has hell just froze over haha
 
mine arrived today excellent bit of kit for the price, packs down really small. Instead of a poxy stuff sac you get a 15 litre dry bag instead. No complaints here!
 
taken the plunge & bought one.

Hi All

I know that the “Good CO” has covered the main points but I thought I should dive on and offer a personal apology from RVOps.

This “cock up”, is my fault. I have never understood why they created such a difficult word to spell as dyslexic (thank god for spell check) for people like me who are dyslexic – what’s that all about!?

The recommended price on this Jacket is £80.00. RVOps were and still do, have a few left for £43.70 + postage. Just click on the link and when you get to the check out type in “Mont1” to receive your discount.

We think this is a good deal?

Its a cracking deal and i'm very happy with my jacket (even though it took a week to arrive after paying £6.99 for parcel force courier delievey!), and i'm still waiting for a receipt so i know how much i was actually charged! (i did email and request one, but got a reply saying my password had been reset).

Sizing wise, i'd say they come up on the small size, 6'3" me weighing 16st got the XXL and its just right.
 
I'd have bought one, but for the £14.85 charge for delivery to NI (and no mail or NI BFPO option).

Very disappointing.
