I was planning to buy a decent waterproof come Autumn, but it occurred to me today that actually, I need it now. I'm planning to buy an Altura jacket - but just wondered if it was actually waterproof? I got caught up Pen y Ghent in what I thought was a waterproof a few months ago....and it didn't work at all. Has anyone got any experience of how dry I'll stay? Also...waterproof shoe coverings. Worth it? Do they work too? And favourite brands??
