Code A10BSK with 2nd Class Royal Mail comes to £43.4836805351-zP33R.jpg36805351-jsrjZ.jpg
Great cheers, not bad at all for a down jacket
On the hunt for a good down jacket, my research has led me to the conclusion that they should be in £30-£40 all claims are similar: dwr, light, breathable etc. Are they all coming out the same factory and then branded / designed ever so slightly different, everyone is selling something like this, Hollister, Jack Wills, Mountain Warehouse. So really I am asking are Surfanic special, is this high end technical gear? Happy to know either way

Depends on what you are using it for. You need to remember that down jackets are ideal in cold and dry climates as once the down gets wet it loses its insulating properties. Down jackets are warm and light. The warmth factor is measured by the number. In this case 600, which is pretty standard. However what the page doesn't tell you is what weight of down is in the jacket so it's not possible to tell if you are getting a good deal. If you are after a reasonably priced down coat have a look at Decathlon

I was about to buy the houded one, but a review states that in not rain proof, so that sounds more useless than technical to me.

Same. Their resposne is honest at least.

Customer Service:
Sorry to hear that your jacket did not perform as you would hope. The Polar down jacket does feature a water repellent fabric, and therefore will offer a small level of protection from rain, but is not intended to be worn on a downpour. (Posted on 25/09/2018)
I didn't look at reviews for the Polar (the hooded version), just the Flex (added some above from Saltrock). To be fair, none of the reviews mentioned waterproof-ness, just how warm the jacket is.

I did recently buy boyf the hooded/polyamide Go Outdoors Freedom Trail Jacket which is still £12 before P&P - can't seem to bring up the thread from December though hotukdeals.com/dea…464

Womens: gooutdoors.co.uk/fre…495
Mens: gooutdoors.co.uk/fre…493

The Go Outdoors one doesn't mention waterproofing at all, some reviews say it's shower proof.

I have a 650 down coat and I wouldn’t go any lower than a 650 down it’s the bare min you should be looking at. I also have a 700 down coat they both suit the British weather perfectly. 800 down + is -20 + territory

All true, but aren’t some down jackets water repellent so they should be fine for light showers really won’t affect the down

Is that all you do all day on HUKD? I swear I see you popping up on threads everywhere. Normally I'd edit, but I think I'll keep it that way - just to annoy you.

That's correct hence my comment about what you intend using it for.

Oh please, get lost.
Boyf is really happy with his (gave the Khaki variety to him as an early Valentine's). Though, for me, out of the packet, I thought the down filling was quite thin. He did say he reckons down jackets aren't supposed to be waterproof but I have no idea.

He loves the chest pocket as well. Seems well-made and still well worth the price, I'd say.
