Buying a new rain jacket
I had the misfortune of losing my Lowe Alpine jacket in Scotland over Easter. I had it for 2 years and it did it's job from Kerry to Kilimanjaro. That said it wasn't perfect. The hood drove me crazy at times. In strong winds I found that the hood was inclined to blow out of shape, sometimes obscuring visibility in 1 eye.

Anyway I need to buy a new one especially after yesterday's trip up Curve waterfall....I mean Curve Gully :-) Yesterday I had to make do with a 15 euro cycle jacket from Lidl. Portable sauna might be a better description but how's ever.

What do you folks recommend? My dad has Berghaus Extreme XCR and it seems to be good jacket although he had a problem with one sleave that started letting water in. Interested to hear your thoughts.

Cheers,
JB
