OK, so this coat is a bit bold (not my choice of colours, that's for sure!), but having seen these coats in Costwolds Outdoors instore yesterday, for the full RRP, this is a decent saving (50%) on what's reviewed as a very decent (if not a little heavy) coat to help keep you warm in some pretty icy temperatures.

I ordered the Graphite and Black version for the same price earlier today, which then seemed to disappear from the website (last one perhaps?), and have since had notification of dispatch.

These jackets, like the McMurdo's are oversized, so if you're usually a large, or possibly even XL, this should be a decent fit (I tried a medium on yesterday, and was roomy enough for me as an average 5'10" in height, and a not so average weight of 15st.).

Apologies if there's not much stock, but I hope that helps [at least] someone!

Here's the official blurb...

Designed to withstand the wear and tear of brutal Antarctic expeditions, the abrasion resistant, extremely durable and exceedingly warm jacket is built for protection from the elements during long difficult days in the most inhospitable weather in the world.

PLEASE NOTE: that only the right sleeve has a badge not both as shown in the picture.

If I needed a coat like this I'd get the most garish one possible.

Makes it easier to spot your frozen corpse from a helicopter!
