Looks good just a matter of choice in my opinion the rab is a good jacket, this has more stretch, closer fit, thumb holes, neck clip, pocket pack, longer back vs front, formed hood peak and is, in my view better jacket for me. I've a rab vs I use for colder weather with the same pertex membrane, (which is patched up with fabric stickers from a fall so probably doesn't help breathability) and it doesn't, for me, breathe as well as the inov8. Probably the best breathable jacket is the gore Infinium, however it's not waterproof enough and theyre only partially taped preventing use in competition. I've got gore Infinium tights which are amazing.
That one does look a decent option for racing. I’d still rather pay £5 more and not need a separate bag to pack it and have a full length zip. Both are good options depending on what the individual is looking for
This other Rab jacket is lighter than the deal jacket, same waterproofing and double the breathability by the looks of it, targeted at mountain runners. (y) ultralightoutdoorgear.co.uk/mens-clothing-c1/mens-waterproof-shell-c51/waterproof-smocks-c202/rab-phantom-waterproof-pull-on-p13025
Thanks, couldn't have explained it better. I looked at the OMM tops, but went for this as I run hot and had read it should be better for me. And this was by far the best price and it was in stock too. Which is seemingly difficult for normal sizes.
Decent price this, it was on my shortlist a month ago but I opted for the OMM Kimelka as it was in stock at the time and marginally cheaper. Is this item cheap? No. Does it provide value for money? Yes 100% if you're going to be spending a couple of hours out in the rain running in horrible conditions. It's not aimed at people heading out for a 15 minute jog around the block, it's a serious piece of kit when you're out in the elements for an extended period of time.

Inov8 Men's Windshell Jacket - £45 Delivered @ Pete Bland Sports£45 Free P&P Free
Saw this and figured even though there's only small and extra large left in stock, it may be helpful to some. Seems to be the best price going for this at the moment.
They seem to be out of stock now so I'll expire this. Very sad to hear that Pete himself has passed away.
Also available for ladies https://www.peteblandsports.co.uk/buy/inov-8-womens-windshell-fz_7708.htm
Pete sadly passed away a couple of weeks ago from covid, a fantastic runner and out on the hills most days so a great loss to the running community. A great shop too and still still family owned. So please support

What a rubbish company, took my order and my money the 4 days later they tell me they don`t have any. Then refunded me. How the hell can they allow a transaction to go through when they should have know they didn`t have the stock. . and then they took 4 days to tell me.
Refund for me.
Great deal on the trail jacket too, £22 instead of £65.... Heat added by the way 8)
Anyone got one of these?
Lightweight, keeps you warm but let's sweat out, comfortable and looks good too in my opinion. For me they are much better than track suit tops or hoodies when playing sport or running.

mightykaboosh, thanks for backing me up! To all the people who voted cold, you are all idiots! :P
I think the reason why people have taken issue with this deal is that we're all used to seeing inflated rrps followed by massive "sale reductions" which make average products seem more appealing. Mike Ashley has managed to flog a lot of low end TNF gear through the high street. Montane is a UK company that makes good quality high end performance clothing. Montane aren't actively targeting the Millets or Blacks demographic and as such they don't adopt the same pricing strategy. If you go into an independent climbing or mountaineering shop you will see Montane! I agree with blahblah Montane clothing pound for pound is a lot better than the TNF stuff that Mike Ashley's shops have been peddling. The jacket looks a lot like the Marmot/ Mammut top end design stuff from '09
Mountain Hardware are also excellent. imho, The North Face do make 'some' good products, but most of their stuff is overpriced standard apparel. Whenever people see a North Face jacket reduced from £300 to £70, they think it is the bargain of the century, whereas in fact it isn't. To all readers out their, Montane, Mountain Hardware, Haglofs, Arc'teryx >>>> North Face
I quite agree. But my experience is that anything 'specialist' or outside the awareness of the general public will be slated on here by people who know nothing beyond big brands. (For the record I'm sat here in a Mountain Hardware softshell which I think is brilliant)
Thanks! Montane > The North Face
