/ ME jacket choices
You might be interested in the ME Kalanka which Go Outdoors are currently selling at £185 down from £360....
Cheers, I might give the Kamchatka a punt in that case. The Morpheus will always be a plan B if needed.
Wrote a wee review of it here...http://mountevz.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/mountain-equipment-kalanka.html?m=1
Had a look but can't find the Kalanka for much less than £300 unfortunately. £220 is about my limit which is what I've found either the Kamchatka or Tupilak for
Large, but not in Norwich :)
I found the hood on the morpheus too small for wearing with a helmet - I ended up buying a Ogre which I found had a good cut once adjusted and a spacious enough hood. The hood on the Kamchatka was better still, but I prefer to have storm flaps on zips and no pit zips, hence the Ogre. I've been very happy with the Ogre this winter - seems pretty hard wearing and is a good length (I don't like the shorter "technical" cuts a lot of brands are going for).
Good stuff, I'll keep the Ogre in mind too. I tried the Kongur and just found it baggy but no longer in the body so that narrows it down further. With regards to 'technical' cuts, £370 Arcteryx Beta barely even reached my belt!

That's because, at Arcteryx prices, £370 only gets you 3/4 of a jacket.
