Waterproof jackets in longer length.

One thing that we get many requests for (and sometimes struggle to get enough stock of as they sell so fast when they do come in!) is good waterproof jackets in a longer length. Well right now we have 2 great jackets in both mens and womens with that extra bit of length you are looking for.

First off, the "Jura GTX" - This is available in both mens and womens (womens being a lovely 2-tone red). Super waterproof, super tough hillwalking jacket guaranteed to keep you dry even on the worst days. With three external zipped pockets including one sternum map pocket and a zipped inner pocket perfect for a GPS or anything else you should care to fill it with. With a drawcord at waist and hem, lovely foldaway hood with a good peak on it and two way front zipper with double storm flap, you are ready to brave the worst of the elements. this jacket is also zip in fleece compatible. We have done all we can to keep the price of this and other jackets as low as possible and I reckon that at €250 this is one hell of a jacket for that kind of money.

Next up is the Mens "Montana" jacket.

This jacket uses Lowe Alpine's own "Triplepoint XC" waterproof fabric - Double layered for increased waterproofing and still has great breathability. As with the Jura, the Montana has two external hip pockets, a sternum map pocket and one internal pocket. A front flap with double storm flaps and concealed metal snap closure gives good protection and once again, we have a two way zip and internal zip for attaching a fleece or softshell. A foldaway hood with good peak finishes off this jacket nicely and at only €155 it's a steal.

Next up is the womens Berghaus "Aura" jacket - 2 layer Gore-Tex
Pro Shell to keep you dry no matter how bad the weather gets - It has Hip, chest and map pockets and a zipped internal pocket, double storm flaps and a really good roll-away hood. Add to that the shouder and hip reinforcements to protect these vulnerable areas and you have a jacket that is built to last as well as perform. It also looks good and from only €230 (we have some reduced and some not), another absolute steal! - Stocks on this model are lower than the Lowe Alpine models above though so you better get a move on if this is the jacket that takes your fancy.
Once again i must bid you farewell my any weather friends. And remember, walking ni the rain is good for the soul (if not the perm).
