    Gents,

    After a bit of a favour here. A mucker has been banging on about getting his mits on a Norweigan issue goretex jacket. Apparently he did a joint-ex with some of Norways finest and got shiney kit envy.

    He's getting married soon and I thought that instead of me rattling his missus, this would be a better gift - I've googled about a bit but no joy, can anyone point me in the right direction please??

    Thanks in advance!
     
  2. It's produced by Bergans so you might want to contact the importer.

  5. Fob him off with a new style Dutch Goretex. Removable Goretex liner, more pockets and Ally-er than your nan.

    Proper job jobbed.

    He's not in a conventional unit, so would get away with anything!
     
  8. Boy Scouts? ;)

    Saw one on ebay..exxxxxpensive..went for silly money!
     
  9. Finally tracked one down for myself. For £85. God bless Ebay !

    Material looks like gaberdine on the outside and goretex inside. Very similar to the Yank ECWCS goretex's.

    I can verify that they are very tasty ! Lord knows when i'll get to wear it but who cares ?!
