Just seen this Wolf Titanium air jacket on ebay for £99 in case anyone's interested:
http://www.ebay.co.u...=item58c9e6aa54

Reviews on a different site for the Wolf Titanium Outlast do say the shoulders hold water for a while which makes me think it's not bonded gore-tex throughout, but for less than a hundred quid it's gotta be a good deal. The seller is based in Peterborough if it helps.

Edited: Only Small, Medium & 5XL available so little'uns and largies only need apply!

Gowza, the Wolf Titanium I bagged on Ebay was a 5xl, I'm a 48/50" chest and I like things a little "roomy". Wolf tend to be quite snug on their sizes so if anybody is considering the jacket and they are local, it's certainly worth a run out to the shop. I am normally an xl or xxl in t-shirts, tops etc and the 5xl was something of a surprise when it fitted well!!!

The Wolf air jacket has a removable waterproof lining so it's not bonded gore-tex. ;)

The Wolf Titanium Outlast is bonded, not Gore-tex though, has kept me dry this summer, not sure if it will be warm enough for winter unless you buy a bigger size for more layers underneath !!

Go Altberg, the most comfortable boot you will ever wear and fully waterproof to boot! So much so that I have a pair of TCX gortex boots sat in a box at home that dont even get a look in now.

If you simply must have Gore-Tex, don't go Altberg (there's nowt wrong with the boots). Altberg use Sympatex and have done for a while.........

My wife wears sealskinz for running in the winter. She reckons they do the job but they're quite a stiff material so I'm not convinced about comfort

I use gore-tex boot liners in my Dainese boots. The boots are comfy but pathetic at being wetproof. This winter will be new wellies yea and heated socks.
