New Waterproofs - APT Fabrics, Acclimatise.

During May many folk will be undertaking the TGO Challenge and so reading what’s new in the gear stakes could well be overlooked. So i am posting this now so that you can keep a reminder somewhere so when you get back you can check out a new set of waterproofs that is being launched in the month of May.

The “Merlin” (no pre-launch photograph as yet), will be a smock with a breast pocket. The smock will have Riri zips.
Colours Red with blue zips.
Black with orange zips.

I’m told that the RRP will be £150 which is a fair price for a good waterproof with Riri zips but a launch price of £120 including delivery is fantastic.

Keep your eye on the website.

Also coming soon will be a climbing smock with double breast pockets and over trousers.

I’m hoping to try one of these soon and report back on progress.


  1. Looking forward to that Alan.

  2. I will be interested to see how you get on with this Alan. Will it live up to the claims!

  3. Hi Mark,
    I can only tell you at this point. That the material is the same as the Brenig Aran smock which i tested last year and proved it to be successful. I havn’t seen one face to face yet and i have only had a brief email to let me know of them being released. I’m certain more will follow. Great price though.
