Wanted Offshore waterproof jacket

Having spent last weekend on the water, one day wet and one day dry - I need a new jacket! Don't need a drysuit just yet. My "waterproof" Berghaus jacket is actually shower proof not waterproof. So I borrowed a MUSTO PERFORMANCE offshore sailing jacket. This kept me dry, warm and fitted like a glove (size L).
Has anybody got one for sale - new/secondhand?
MUSTO or equivalent?
.
If you have let me know, cost, details, etc.
.
Any training schools getting new clothing and therefore used clothing to sell?
.
Thanks in advance.

'Offshore' rather than 'Coastal' is what you need to look for. I think the Musto Performabce stuff isn't full spec offshore. Musto MPX or HPX is up there as is HL Ocean or Ocean Racer.

I have HL Ocean Breathing gear which is a few years old now. It's spot on.

Just bought Coastal musto channel br1 jacket from scotts of Langholm, 114 less 5% on web, reduced from 165 see thread. when I rang it Appears the main difference is that offshore uses br2 material which is no more waterproof, just lighter. The inshore jackets are showerproof like my old berghaus and with smaller collars etc Great for cycling but not on the boat in bad weather. The channel jacket is classed as Coastal to offshore. Hope this helps.
