Military surplus waterproofs

Recommended Posts

I know the whole waterproof discussion has been done to death but can anyone recommend a good Military surplus supplier (UK, EU or US) and a tried and trusted waterproof and breathable jacket. Not interested in the expensive chainsaw stuff.

Just google on line there's a few that come up, I've had a couple but can't remember who from. I thought you bought a really expensive coat not so long ado?

I got given a Swazi for work but it's short sleeved and $275. I also have a Stihl waterproof that was $350. Looking for some cheaper ones that'll take a beating and the military ones are always recommended.

I have a lightweight goretex new pattern jacket that is ideal as a "cagoule" but beware the sizes are very small and I had to go up two.

about £30 i think.
