Musto BR1 Channel Jacket going for 114.95 NEW

Found these on special offer at 114.95, not sure for how long. Normally 164.95. Cheapest I found elsewhere was 145.

Just ordered one. Good enough for Ellen McArthur, good enough for me.

I agree, but.... are you buying it as a fashion garment or as offshore weather protection?

I know it wasn't directed at me but I hardly ever where my HH on a boat. I've still got a Head Worx jacket which is about 14 years old and a HH jacket which is about 11 years old. I find sailing jackets last alot longer compared to other jackets of a similar price.

rich b

Only passing comment. Just think the blue looks the best.

I had been researching the jackets and they have a good reputation. I only boat between april and october and only go coastal so dont need an offshore jacket.

It was between this and the Helly Hanson that my dad has. But they are 179 and the Musto 165...then i found this offer and it swung it. A lot of jacket i thing for the money.

You can get a further 5% off on line as well....so it is only 109 ish

I rang the IOW branch of the store today and he said the offer will end tonight. I ordered one over the phone, then realised there is 5% off on line also. Will phone up tomorrow to moan. Still a bargain. They are stocked in the Scottish store evidently. Free postage too!!

size decision

There is a chart that gives chest size and waist size for L and M. Chest on large is 41-43 and waist 34-37. These measurements are more important than height!! If i went on height id be in a small.

Yes im short and fat!
