New AF Parka
« on: February 05, 2018, 08:35:16 »
Has anyone heard any reviews on the new parka yet?  Is it any sort of improvement on the old blue gortex?

Cheers,

AK

I wore it the last 3 weeks, it's very warm and nice. Can't complain.

I much prefer it to the old one. I’ve only worn it a few times, but it’s warm, comfortable and doesn’t have the bulk & weight of the old one.

I had to wear mine for a few weeks last year. It is comfortable to wear, and less bulky than the gabardine or the old blue gore-tex jacket. Points well spent.

Thank you for the input.  Storage space is getting tight so I not accepting any more kit unless it's worth it!
