Get yer coat!

Last week it was shoes we wanted to know about, this week it’s that winter essential, a decent waterproof. For the rest of the week we’ve got tests of waterproof (or water resistant) splash macs from Race Face, Altura, Karrimor, Endura, Ground Effect and any others that we can track down. For this week we’re concentrating on value for money at around £100 rather than the real big money Gore Tex (etc.) numbers, which we’ll be covering in the not too distant future.

Just as important as what we think though, is what you think about the jackets you’ve got, as chances are you’ve ridden round in them a whole lot longer – for better or worse.

Have you been saddled with a showerproof of shame or are you wanting to applaud an angelic anorak?

Whichever way your waterproof fortunes have fallen, we want to know, so mail me [email protected]. As usual we’ll have round up of all your reviews at the end of the week, so if you were going coat shopping this week, we suggest you save it till Saturday.

Until then, on with the reviews…..
