What we say...
Waterproofs Test October 2012
The fleece and storm jumper were my favourite items. I was very happy with the styling and colours and the fit was great.
Both tops are very warm and the Storm jumper performed brilliantly while playing nine holes in showers.
I am not a great fan of wearing waterproofs so the extra protection provided by the Storm top was a really nice feature. The styling is very minimal, which I like - although a more neatural colour would have been preferable.
Performance wise I was very happy with this product. The fitting was much more comfortable than other products I have tried and there is a band on the inside of the bottom which prevents it riding up.
The waterproofs however, left me with mixed feelings. I really liked the fit of the trousers, and they are much more fitted than my current bottoms. The jacket, however, was a little too long so I ended up tucking it in on itself using the elastic cord.
I also felt both the bottoms and the jacket were not very breathable. I found the material a little too hot abd would not want to wear the jacket if I only had short sleeves on underneath.
Though they're not super comfortable due to the closer fit I am happy to report that they are very easy to swing in with minimal interference with my swing. They are also very waterproof and such a good fit for width.
