Update, I have now had the Alpkit Argonaut for 22 months and its not let me down yet. This weekend has seen constant rain in the Peak District from hammering it down with gusting winds to the fine stuff that gets you really wet . It has been quite mild so I only wore a Hi Gear base layer underneath. It has kept me totally dry although with it being so thin it sometimes feels like it has leaked. This would probably not be noticeable if more layers were being worn. I am really pleased with the performance of this lightweight jacket.Thread resurrection:
Any chance of an update mate?
In the market for a new waterproof as my 5 year old Mountain Equipment Polartec neoshell is not performing as it once did in hard rain. I'll probably prefer Gortex this time round, as I want to stay dry when on long walks.
So hit me with your recommendation
