12 years ago I bought a lightweight waterproof windproof lightly insulated coat. for $25. It has served me faithfully with no complaints. Matter of fact I found out how good it was when I faced 25 degree windy temps in Wyoming. It kept me perfectly warm for up to 1/2 hour.
This trusty coat is now giving up the ghost. It has begun to succumb to age. It's outer shell has dried out and begun cracking.
About a month ago I started looking for a suitable replacement. Took a look in stores around here... found nothing. Turned to searching the net. Found a number of items to serve the same purpose... starting at $150 and up. No thank you, way too expensive.
I finally came across the Result Mens Core Lightweight Waterproof Shield Windproof Jacket. Man what a find!!
I can't recommend this jacket/parka enough! It far surpasses my previous waterproof jacket/parka with so many features. Without going into the details it is more waterproof/windproof, seals up better and is much warmer and more comfortable.
Man, for the quality, performance, and value you can't beat this Great parka!!!
If you find a parka better than this one at this price, let me know. I'll buy it in a minute.
Have to add a note here. Apparently this item comes from the UK. When I ordered it from Amazon, Amazon emailed me to tell me that this item wouldn't be delivered for more than a month. I received a email from the supplier saying to disregard the delivery date from Amazon. The item would be delivered in two weeks. Well the item was delivered in two weeks. I have to conclude, again, this is an excellent product that I love. Also the company/supplier goes to the n'th degree to satisfy the customer.
Also have to add that even if this parka took more than a month to be delivered, I am so happy with it that it wouldn't have mattered!
