cant find it anywhere for the £44.99 rrp
#3
You won't. This is Sports Direct and their made up RRPs
#4
Was this ever on sale at £44.99,and did any poor fools actually pay that much for it ? Would love to know this company's record for sales at full price versus hugely reduced/realistic price. Still, seems cheap enough for this particular item so voted hot.
#5
Got one of these for cycling, I paid £12 or something, decent enough to be visible on the dark mornings and nights, a necessity if you want to improve your chances of staying alive.
#6
Dont know how they justify the rrp but its still a bargain at £6
#7
cheap price
these are on ebay for £20 delivered
#8
Add £3.99 for delivery.
#9
I'm surpised trading standards don't investigate Sports Direct. They adopt a policy of pricing items at some ridiculous RRP (probably for 10 mins to stay within the law) then mark most of their price tickets as 50% off.
£6 is about right for this item - I looked at these in store - seams are not taped so will leak immediately if it starts raining.

They are / did....under price fixing allegations.

suspect rrp but great price all the same

Cant agree with you more rd6743 but I guess this is not the place to discuss such issues.

Might buy one of these to go raving in at the weekend.....

Heat added...I bought one of these a few weeks ago at my local Sports Direct. Although the zip broke on 1st use the replacement I was given has been fine so far.

Surely RRP's are suggested by the manufacturer rather than individual stores? Which therefore is no different to many online retailers who sell products for a lot less than the Recommended Retail Price - which is all it is - a Recommendation.

Yeah but in this case Sports Direct own Karrimor, I believe ...
#17
sports direct own karrimor hence price abuse
#18
regardless of the ridiculous rrp's, this is a great price. I bought one for running yesterday.

I'd hardly attribute it to that. They do it with Crocs (£2), football shirts are currently almost half off what you'd find them at a club shop, a while ago they did Adidas trousers for a fiver (usually £17.99), currently also doing Umbro fleece pants for 6 quid I think (owned by Nike). It's not just their own stuff they discount.

Anyways, decent price regardless of 'RRP'. Have some heat.

Also, you can get these instore (so no postage. Had a quick scan and didn't see it mentioned, sorry if it was).

Definately heat added for this. Great for cycling or just walking in those unlit areas. We bought one from elsewhere just last week for £24.99 for son wanting one for running. So even if RRP is inflated, at the £6.00 plus 3.99 delivery its a good deal
#23
Likely to be rebranded tat that never sold nor is nowhere near worth the RRP.
#24
these are really good i paid about £20 a while back for an orange one for my wife she using it on her bike makes her nice and visible and keeps her dry too

Funny as that's the exact reason I do buy stuff from Sports Direct. It's as funny as hell!!!!

Will look instore, wont bother ordering online as they have a habit of removing items they don't have stock of then sending it anyway.

these are really good i paid about £20 a while back for an orange one for my wife she using it on her bike makes her nice and visible and keeps her dry too


It's a completely different range though. I have the orange cycling jacket and it is a heavier material but has all the breathability of a bin bag. These running jackets are a much lighter material and will keep you a bit drier than you otherwise would be in a rain shower but it will leak. Still worth £6 though.

Having just slagged them a bit I like both jackets for what they are. The cycling jacket is much better in the winter than it was for dealing with summer showers for the reason outlined above.

One word of warning though, people seem to think that throwing on a high viz coloured jacket suddenly makes them obvious at night. While it is a bit better than darker colours I would advise buying some reflective strips as well if that's what you plan to use it for.

Bought one of these for about £12 for wifie a couple of years ago & used regularly for running. Still going strong - well worth £6.

These have reflective logos, strips on pockets at on the sides and back (just for info) :-)

Yep, fully aware of that but a lot of people seem to feel they can be seen easily at night because of the high viz colour. You are no more obvious at night in this jacket than you would be wearing any other light colours.

A few reflective bands which are a bit thicker than some piping and the small logo would definitely help. Throw on a head torch as well if you are planning to head out on the roads and really want to be seen.

From Wikipedia: A 2009 Australian study found that fluorescent vests were not a significant improvement on black clothing at night, and that retro-reflective strips were more effective when attached to knees and ankles than on a more or less static jacket[4]. Reference: Wood, J.M. et al. 2009. Drivers' and cyclists' experiences of sharing the road: Incidents, attitudes and perceptions of visibility. Accident Analysis & Prevention 41: 772-776. doi:10.1016/j.aap.2009.03.014.

All I am saying is that I see countless people out running on the roads at night in this type of high visibility gear and they genuinely seem to think that it makes them really obvious, which it doesn't. A bit of reflective piping will help but not a lot.
#33
The rrp verges on the dishonest, as with all Sports Direct's Karrimor lines. However, for just £6, the jacket is very good value for money. I purchased one today.... Thanks.
#34
I already use reflective bands on my ankles with LEDs on them, but nowt on the top. My bag covers my back, and has some reflective patches, so never really bothered. For £6 though its poss worth getting anyway.

I agree with you Slacker - just wanted to point out that there was some reflective product on them which will help if the person wearing it is smack in front of a car - at least the driver will notice them just before they run them down:-)

It's not advertised as a waterproof - it is a high viz top for wearing whilst running, where you tend to get hot and sweaty if you are doing it properly so a waterproof would be pointless.

I have a few Karrimor high viz running tops - they are not the best quality but they are good value for money.

Do you own a Newcastle shirt? Have you attended any games since Mike took over? So either you're a hypocrite or an armchair fan. Sounds about right for a Newcastle supporter.

Hi Folks
Stop looking at the previous RRP prices etc
Just look what you can buy now for £6
I run every day and bought one of these a few months ago for much more than £6 and I am still happy with it.
No one claims they are water proof. They will keep you warm in windy and cool weather (they are also shower proof).
Just bought 3 more this morning at £6 from the Grantham store
