    Can someone recommend me a lightweight waterproof jacket (fluoro-yellow), please?

    I do have a waterproof jacket by endura but the material is quite thick and it's too warm for the mild weather we've been having lately.

    Thanks

    Bugger...that apple thrown in for free really was a deal-clincher.
     
  6. can't remember if they do yellow, but www.groundeffect.co.nz do some nice stuff. i have one of their jackets, bright orange, and it's very light. folds into itself for easy carrying.

    Sorry to disappoint to all but it clearly states above the sizing guide that the apple isn't included. :smile:

    It's made from pertex as well ,so I don't think it would be any more than showerproof in my experience.

    yes, those lightweight are always going to be showerproof I think

    after my Nightvision episode I think it's a choice between waterproof and sweaty or lightweight and showerproof

    What a scam!

    I went to buy some AAA batteries the other day, but the packaging was empty cos it said 'batteries not included'. I was so disappointed. :tongue:

    Montane are not WATERPROOF, but they'll be okay for drizzle. Endura Superlite on the other hand...

    If money is no object get a Gore Paclite (though they may now call it something different now).

    As I was short of money when I need a new jacket I bought an Altura Velocity which has been OK, but is not as nicely cut as the Gore.

    nightvison update

    proper cold today, short top, nightvision zipped up, no buff

    toasty warm tending to light sweat, despite me taking it fairly east, neck mostly upzipped towards the end

    vents unzipped, I can't imagine weather where they'd be zipped up

    it's too warm, lovely when you start off though, there's no chilly first ten minutes
