There's a few hefty discounts for Civilised Friday, but I thought this jacket was definitely worth a mention. I'm a big fan of howies and have worn their gear for years - it does what it says, does it well and lasts forever.
"A brand new waterproof jacket... made from organic cotton bonded to an incredible 2.5 layer polyester membrane from Sympatex. ...a modern twist on the traditional parka style, constructed from an environmentally friendly fabric that’s 100% recyclable, PTFE and PFC free. It’s completely waterproof, highly breathable and totally windproof.
Trust us, we’ve tested this thing in Wales where the rain is wetter and the wind is windier... and we came away completely unscathed.
