Having recently had my Softie pile shirt robbed off me, (perhaps by a bunch of cadets as they were in the area) along with my day sack. I am getting around to replacing these items. I am considering buying a softie, but these are on issue now, hence cheap on ebay. Are they any good? Also can i have some pointers to other alternatives, people might be using. At the moment i am facing using my wooley pulley and scrim net as a scarff.
