I have been looking for a down jacket for ages which was cheap. and which had a showerproof coating. Most of them don't but the Mountain Warehouse one did. I do photography and the standing still for long periods of time usually leaves me absolutely freezing, especially my hands. I have been on the Jurassic Coast for the last few days, and with the usual layers this jacket absolutely kept me toasty warm. I was sometimes too hot, but I never felt cold. And, because my core was so warm my hands were mostly fine.
I now need to look for some gloves which will keep my fingers warm and let me twiddle the tiny knobs without taking them off!
