JW for sure, don't buy that one it is not very waterproof and not very breathable and IMHO Trespass is not the best quality either. That should be a £30 jacket max price. "100% Polyester TPU Membrane Shell" is basically a cagoule.
I've been looking at that one. I don't mind Craghoppers, but obviously their initial pricing, or RRP is laughable. 60% or 70% discount is achievable, but don't think you've grabbed a bargain!!
What’s better? The JWjacket in the post or this for £50? https://www.trespass.com/rakenfard-mens-waterproof-jacket

Jackets Keeping People Warm
Whenever you buy a jacket, it's a good idea to balance your sense of style with practical considerations. Warmth, water resistance and comfort all play a role.
Every type of jacket offers different properties, and will be suitable for different times of year or situations.
Popular Jacket Types
Denim jackets: Thin and usually button fastened with plenty of pockets made from a jeans material.
Blazers: Smart and often tailored to your own body shape.
Parkas: Long, fur lined coats with a hood.
Coats: Long smart casual and professional jackets.
Bomber jackets: Casual and usually zip fastened.
Outdoor jackets: Waterproof and designed for active pursuits.
At HotUKDeals, you can find all of these jackets from the UK's leading brands. You can find denim jackets from big names like Jack & Jones, Vero Moda, Wrangler or Levi’s. There are fitted blazers from designers like Harry Brown, parkas from brands like Jack Wolfskin, smart coats from Benetton and bomber jackets from Harrington.
In the winter months, warmth is everything. You could choose from:
Long parka jackets with soft fur-lined collars and hoods to wrap snugly around your head
Leather jackets with a down lining to trap heat
Ski jackets designed to provide mobility on the slopes, and stay warm everywhere else
Or, when the spring time comes you can go for:
Tweed jackets, that are warm enough to deal with unexpected chills, but open up to keep you cool when the sun shines
Breathable waterproofs made from Gore-Tex or neoprene that protect against April showers
Slim-line short leather jackets
For summer evenings or occasions when a light jacket is essential:
Leisure jackets made from fine cotton or linen that will add to a smart-casual look and allow your skin to breathe
Ultra-lightweight raincoats for festivals and summer camping
Figure-hugging short denim jackets from brands like Lee Cooper or Wrangler
Choose the Right Jacket Material
Modern jackets can be made from a huge variety of materials, from wool and synthetic materials, leather, suede, Gore-Tex, fur, cotton, corduroy to felt. This makes it important to choose something that works for you.
Down, fur and wool are ideal for the colder months, with heat trapping properties.
Leather looks stylish and has an edgy quality, which is great for gigs, clubbing and general urban wear.
Tweed, felt or boucle have a quirky charm and also tend to be nice and warm.
Synthetics like Gore-Tex keep you dry, allow sweat to evaporate and are easy to clean.
Waxed jackets are water resistant and strong, although they need a little maintenance.
Down or Synthetic? – A Few Arguments
6 Facts About Jacket Fits
Fit refers to how a jacket sits upon your body. It can involve a design that gathers the jacket's material around your waist (generally a slim-line fit) or looser regular-fit garments that don't emphasise the shape of the wearer.
This is important, as your jacket is the outer-most layer of clothing. It's like the mould that gives your body shape – so if you choose a very loose fitting garment, even people with ultra-slimline figures will hide their shape.
If you have spent months in the gym toning your body, you might want to choose a jacket that allows you to show off your figure. In that case, you'll need a slim fit style with a relatively tight waistline.
If you choose a tighter fit, give yourself enough room around the shoulders. Avoid buying a jacket that is perfect around the waist, but uncomfortably tight around the collar and shoulders – so take your shoulder and neck measurements and find a jacket that suits them.
For those who don't have the perfect physique, a regular fit is an ideal option. The extra room provided by the looser cut will allow you to add extra layers underneath if the weather turns colder, and regular fit jackets can often be more comfortable as well.
No jacket should feel excessively tight, but there shouldn't be a large "gap" between the material of the jacket and your inner clothing. Try fastening one of the buttons around the midriff. If it feels tight, but you can move easily in all direction, then it's probably a good fit.
Acquire the Complete Jacket Collection
There are no hard and fast rules about precisely what kinds of jacket every man and woman should have – but there are some eternal classics and practical necessities.
A good outdoor jacket is vital for almost any guy and girl. If you are out in town or spending time in the countryside, it's essential to have a reliable, comfortable waterproof jacket that looks good.
Professionals also need smart-casual jackets or coats that emphasise the smart side of the equation. Peacoats are a great example. Originating in naval uniforms, they feature waterproof materials, have an elegant fit and provide plenty of comfort. Leading peacoat brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Ted Baker show how it should be done.
If you are heading to festivals, something more dynamic is needed, which is why leather jackets will always be in demand. Sleek, beautifully cut contemporary leather jackets with a tailored fit go well with jeans, and have a youthful edge that other jackets lack.
For wandering around markets or parks in spring time, a duffle coat could be just the thing. With its quirky fasteners, strong and warm material and the trademark hood, duffle coats look great and are fun to wear. Check out Gloverall's jackets for some of the best around.
Caring For Leather Jackets
At HotUKDeals, you'll find leather jackets from big UK fashion names, like Ted Baker, Burberry and Paul Smith – but all of them need to be taken care of properly.
With leather jackets, you need to guard against the material losing its shine and energy. Thankfully, you can buy silicone polymer based sprays that rejuvenate the leather, ensuring that it stays water resistant without dulling its colour. Remember to follow the guidelines suggested on the leather protection product, as the effects don't last forever.
You can also buy leather conditioners to soften the jacket's material. If you let leather dry, it will eventually crack, which some people think adds an aesthetic touch, though most people will want to avoid this. For general cleaning, just use warm water and a cloth to remove grime and salt.
One thing to remember about leather jackets is that they naturally tend to stretch. That can be a very good thing, as the jacket automatically fits itself around the body of its owner, meaning that in time, every leather jacket becomes completely unique.
To achieve a perfect fit, apply your leather conditioner to soften the material, focusing on the elbows and the shoulders – where cracking is most likely. After leaving it to rest for a day, sprinkle the jacket with water. Now, simply wear your jacket for another day or two and, after a few weeks, it should shape itself to your figure.
Discover the Attraction of Waxed Jackets
Waxed jackets were designed to serve farmers and hunters in the English countryside but thanks to manufacturers like Barbour, Belstaff and Hackett they have become a global phenomenon.
They are waterproof, warm, stylish and have lots of pocket space – so their popularity is no wonder. However, they do require some unique care measures to keep them at their best.
The most important thing about waxed jackets is, unsurprisingly, the wax itself. This outer coating is what provides their waterproof qualities, and it has to be renewed every now and then.
Specialist wax can be purchased online or from labels like Barbour. Before you apply the wax, thoroughly clean your jacket with a sponge and cold water to remove any impurities. Don't use soap or hot water at this point and stay clear of the washing machine.
After softening the wax by placing the tin in a tub of hot water, cover a sponge in the liquid wax and apply it over the whole surface of the jacket, focusing on the seams in particular. Try to avoid the collar and the inside of the garment. When you have finished, its a good idea to run a hair-dryer over the jacket to make sure that the wax sets evenly.
Now, just hang up your jacket away from other clothes, and repeat the process around once every year to keep your waxed jacket smooth and waterproof for as long as possible.
5 Quick Tips on Outdoor Jackets
If you are planning to hike across the moors, climb the cliffs of the Lake District or walk the coastal paths of Cornwall – a good outdoor jacket is essential. You can find the best outdoor jacket you need for any adventure at HotUKDeals.
Merchants specialising in hiking jackets include Trespass, Blacks, Oakley and North Face, while Craigdon Mountain Sports stock a collection of jackets for skiers and climbers. Berghaus, Blacks and North Face all stock reliable waterproofs.
Modern outdoor jackets are made from a wide range of materials, from Gore-Tex to neoprene, and you can find designs for every season and outdoor activity.
If you are heading into the hills during the summer months, a lightweight soft shell jacket will be ideal. Choose one that allows your skin to breathe, but also protects against the odd shower. However, don't risk a winter hike without something warm underneath, as soft shell jackets don't have great insulating properties.
When you are counting on dealing with sub-zero temperatures and biting wind, something thicker is required. In this case, go for outdoor jackets with fleece lining or multiple layers. Fleece is cosy, soft and comfortable, but have a waterproof on hand, as it takes time to dry.
Another option is a hard shell jacket. Sitting in between soft shell waterproofs and heavy duty fleeces, hard shell jackets are more rigid and tend to be extremely waterproof. They may be a little hot in mid summer, but when you feel the mountain chil, they will provide plenty of protection.
Layering is another great way to keep extra warm, and to have the flexibility to deal with different weather conditions. Why not wear a fleece underneath, with a lightweight waterproof on top? It's a great combination for spring excursions, when the temperature varies and the sun can't be relied upon.
Jackets For Sport
At our merchants, you can also find a wide range of jackets designed for sporting activities. These could include:
Golf jackets are available from brands like Under Armour or Nike which protect against perspiration and provide excellent mobility, helping players to swing freely.
Training jackets from brands like Converse or Adidas that are lightweight enough for runners, allowing you can head out for a jog in any conditions. Brightly coloured training jackets from sportswear retailers like Nike can also double up as football or casual wear, adding another string to your bow.
High visibility jackets for cyclists or motorbike owners that feel comfortable and keep you safe on the road.
Ski and snowboarding jackets with extra padding, excellent water protection, high collars to keep the wind out and a hood large enough to stretch over your helmet. Look out for designs with handy features like pockets for ski passes.
Saving Big on Jackets for Men, Women and Children
Buying a cheap mens parka or cheap ladies coats isn´t a big deal if you consider a few things: Deals on Jackets can be found throughout the year at merchants like Hollister, Superdry or Decathlon, but they tend also to be cheaper at certain times of the year such as Black Friday and the January Sales right after Christmas. It´s also a good idea to buy clothes anti-seasonal, meaning to buy cheap womens winter coats or mens leather jackets in summer or spring.

Now I become home worker and pajamas is my working clothes. no suit anymore.
I'd beware of this particular jacket - it's listed as "100% linen" but one comment says it's a polyester-linen mix. John Lewis customer service confirmed this to me in an email months ago but, shoddily, haven't updated the website yet.
Thanks for posting (y) Your thread has been selected for our Highlights pages (highfive)
Narrow minded comment... PS, you say "Hotuk deals repeatedly censors & deletes my comments as against rules, whilst many other users are allowed say the exact same thing. Double standards deals." I wonder why...?
Again... Great find and well worth the price!! It's a shame they have this very stupid process that you would need to download the link to be able to press it 🤦🤦🤦🤦🤦

Is that the one made with the pockets with a hole in? (So they can surreptitiously drop rubber bands discreetly like in The Great Escape).
Thanks, now I won't be able to make myself to order one (lol)
Imagine been seen out with regatta plastered on your cloths..
More Star Trek uniforms
I usually wear medium in almost all brands but with Regatta medium always tends to be a bit tight under the arms/ shoulder. However the fit everywhere else is perfect, meaning if I size up to a large then that solves the slightly too tight under the arms problem, but it's then too big everywhere else. Thought it might be less of an issue with a gilet but it was just as bad, if not worse. Went for a Uniqlo one in medium instead, which was double the price, but probably worth it as it's down not synthetic, so it's also much less bulky and more packable, probably slightly warmer too (?), just don't get it wet... If you are on a tight budget, maybe look at Decathlon, only thing is their sizing is even worse, so try in-store rather than buying online...
I have one and quality is good and strong. Size was completely correct for me so maybe I was lucky or people are fatter after lockdown than they care to admit haha probably my favourite body warmer even compared to £100+ ones. But I wear it as a general jacket when it’s warm but not hot out and for driving in.
Regatta stuff is always on sale and I have loads of it that I don't wear bought about 6 jackets last year bored in lockdown and regret it. Looks good but after you wear it you sweat like a pig as they have cheap nylon fillers. Better to buy more expensive ones
Useful guide to down vs synthetic jackets here: https://outdoorsmagic.com/article/synthetic-insulated-jackets-buyers-guide/? Or for TLDR version, see attached. :D
No sparkly silver lining.... Boo. They make good stuff though (y) 🏻
Yeah it was a thermoball with some synthetic down filling. I suppose it was my own ignorance but I was really surprised how bad it was in anything more than a light shower. Living near Manchester rain resistance is kind of an essential. I've seen a few jackets advertising the DWR coating so maybe not having that was part of the issue. Seen a few people with these on recently so was tempted but maybe i'd be better looking at something else. cheers
Did it have a down filling? Down is terrible if it gets wet, loses most of its warmth and volume and takes ages to dry. Synthetic fillings (Primaloft etc) are better, as they will retain some warmth and are easier/quicker to dry. But these types of jackets are mainly designed for cold dry weather, not for wearing in the rain. So not always ideal for UK weather. Usually they have some kind of outer 'water resistant' coating which means a light shower isn't necessarily a big issue, but they are not waterproof and you will get soaked through in prolonged rain or heavy rain.
Are these terrible in rain? I had a North face puffer type jacket that was useless as soon as it started it raining.Cheers
Brought one the other month during last discount and just got a second one delivered today. Excellent quality and proper full padding for a puffa jacket unlike more expensive ones that are thin insulation and poor quality.
