It is wind and waterproof and will keep you toasty when it's cold. Although I wouldn't wear it if it's a continual downpour

Go Outdoors do regular deals on their stuff so it's worthwhile keeping an eye out for that in the future.

The only thing I'll specifcally avoid are the zip off trousers. Not stretchy enough to take off the bottom half without taking your boots off, which seems like an utter faff.

I wore a pair of the zip offs to work for all of the last two summers and they survived the rigours of helping folk on and off pedal boats well. They did fade a bit in the sun so the lower legs look daft when re attatched but hey ho.
Recently I have been wearing a pair of haglofs softshell trousers and they are much more comfortable as they are stretchy. If you are just walking then the craghoppers would be ok, anything more active like scrambling then they are a bit restrictive.

I've also purchased at no great expense some Craghopper fleeces and blouses - they all wear and wash well.

I'm a big Berghaus fan, just really like their gear. Can recommend it.
Try a website called sportpursuit, they have sales on for short terms and the prices are always very cheap for quality gear. Other than that outdoorclearance and gaynors are both good for cheaper prices.
Have used them all in pirce matches with gooutdoors to save an extra 10% !!!!

They'll not win any fashion awards anytime soon but they are bloody warm. I find them a little restrictive so don't use them for anything technical but for a wee yomp out on the winter hills you cannae knock em.
Haha I guess my woman is right, the hills are a fashion parade. I too am guilty :/
