Edgar, had a look at one of these in the Snowbee shop last week as I was also interested as they were on offer. I didn't buy one as the jacket is lightly padded and therefore quite heavy for its size in comparison to non lined / single skin fabrics. It would be good if you were stationary for long periods of time but I felt that I'd get too hot (despite its breathability) walking any distance in it.

Hi,does anyone own this jacket? Any good,bad points about it?I would appreciate your oppinion,cos considering buying one myself.
I have this Jacket, I got it from the shop at Rutland water a couple of years ago.
Its very well made (brilliant) and totally waterproof with extremely high durability etc,the only problem is (and its a biggy) you get way to hot in it.
I now only wear a Simms thin base layer top under it or a tee shirt.
If your moving around a lot like when rock hopping then you will burn up.
Once you get to April/May time you will find it to warm.
I would go for something much thinner as all you really need is a 'shell' type wading jacket.
