I was wandering around Covent Garden the other day and saw this coat in a window. After trying it on and seeing the price (19.99!) I had to grab it. I don't normally put this kind of thing on here but after wearing it around for the last few days I feel this is a great budget alternative to jackets like the Nano Puff but for under 1/7th of the cost of what you might pay for one on the high street, and this is coming from a guy that wears Arc'teryx, TNF etc. Just thought there might be a few people out there tight for cash that need a nice layer that IMO would be ideal for breezy spring belays or as a layering piece on colder climbs, and without the feeling of wearing last months paycheck.

I'm sure theres many reasons why it falls short of branded jackets of a similar type but for the price you pay I think it's a steal.
