    Something to be said for 'weight' in clothing. I bought this US AirForce Parka from a surplus shop as a student in Edinburgh in 1968. I think it cost £12 at the time (which was not cheap then.) I've done mountains all over the UK in winter with it and used it continuously for winter wear (and sleeping bag cover) up until a couple of years ago when the front zip went near the base. Still in pretty good nick for it's age, and I can't bring myself to throw it away, and haven't yet found anybody who will repair the zip.
    (Edinburgh is a great city .. but colder than a Scotsman's Wallet in the winter.) :heyhey:

    Having extolled the virtues of 'weight', I did buy one of these in the mid-80s.

    Mine is a sage green polycotton outer - to avoid the garishness and the 'swish-swish' of the nylon varieties.

    Goretex and Quallofil, it's a marvellous jacket, though suffering a little from elderliness now and not really waterproof any more.

    It has lots of excellent features and I do have a saved search on eBay, but they have unfortunately reused the name many, many times.

    I bought it over the phone - high-tech for me back then - and was ordering a 'medium' - but the chap said "They are a bit on the large side, you might be better with a 'small'" - so, I took him at his word and it was a perfect fit.

    Can't deny the garish colours are really good for mountain rescue search teams, and military drones looking to pop a cap in your ass. :heyhey:

    Rather embarassingly sitting in my house, listening to the noisy 'sh*ggers' next door yet again. :embarrass: My plumber is upstairs working in the room the other side of the wall. If I can hear their screams above the drilling, pretty sure he can :embarrass:

    They don't need much to get them at it..been banging away every day since he met her. Was the same few years ago with his last girlfriend before he moved out ( his mum's house & he's moved back in..)
    I broke sons little Karaoke machine at the time, trying to blast out S Club 7 to put them off their stride. That was when son was younger and innocently said " Mum.. I think ***** is being murdered" one night :lol:.

    Must admit, I was a bit disappointed when I found out that Screwfix was a DIY store, and not the latest dating agency.

    If you need a fix after your screw, then you're doing it wrong.
