Sailing jacket from TK Max.

Saw this jacket in TK Max for 40 should have been 150 size small only, so I got it for the wife for the easter Anglesey cruise. I have never heard of this make ( probably that's why its cheap) has anyone on here got one or heard of this make and are they half decent. Cheers.

PRO RAINER.

Poisonally, I'd go for a bit of pre-loved higher spec gear via Fleabay if you don't want to shell out arms and legs. I bought one of our lads a cracking Duggie Gill offshore outfit (jacket and hi-bib) for 130 last week. He does a bit of 1/4 tonner racing.

Ive had a couple of their jackets, though it was years ago - they were ok.

Looks fine for sailing kit. Don't knock Cheeky Max, they come up with the goods occasionally.

However, Mrs willk has had the choice of 2 part sailing stuff and a Fladen 1 piece, and she's plumped for the Fladen, most days. Tricky when nature calls, but nice when nature dumps on you...

Brand Awareness: Depends on how much the company has spent to make you aware. Just 'cos you haven't heard of it, doesn't mean it's rubbish...

Conversely, it's very difficult to charge lot's of money for just a name.
