/ comedy waterproof trousers
Karimoor do some cheap ones :)
Have you tried washing your event?
Yes. My event Montane jacket was brilliant for first 3 Showers. Next to Useless ever Since.
I wouldnt buy it again.
I have a pair of Teva approach shoes, lined with Event, that I think may be leaking after very little wear. I say "think" because I found this out after misjudging the tide on a beach earlier in the week, and am not 100% sure that the sea did not go over the top.
However, to be honest, I only use them for kicking about in, they are super-comfy, stylish even, and only cost £30 from TK Maxx.
Mrs Ridge has had a Rab event jacket for about 7 years. Still pretty good at keeping water out, although the inner fabric is now beginning to wear. I don't think it's any worse than Goretex of that age.
I'd be interested to hear the eVent experiences of people who are out on a big trip where they have to wash in rivers etc and perhaps don't have the capacity to carry the required nixwax product.
In essence, is eVent (or similar technology gear) only any good where you're never too long away from civilisation?
