What can people recommend as a good synthetic belay jacket? looking at a price range of 70-100 pounds (or cheaper if possible). Something thats obviusly warm but also very durable for winter climbing and ski touring ect?
In reply to sethmford: I have the flux and found it to be a great jacket, I used it in Scotland last winter and was plenty warm enough, I don't think the prism is enough for a belay jacket, if you shop around you could probably get the flux for around the top end of your budget,

It's is a damned good one over 3 seasons, but the usual suspects: Flux, Alpine Generator, Fitzroy, are more suited to winter. I find the Flux oddly sized. Too tight unless you size it up. And then too much bag in odd places. I bought a TNF Makalu because it doubles well for snowboarding or in town and is definitely warmer and drier having a wind and waterproof membrane.
