    Waterproof jacket

    I'm torn between investing in an OMM Kamleika jacket, Kamleika smock or a Higher State (Sportsshoes.com) jacket/smock

    Any advice or experience with these?

    My montane minimus has had it and I've not been very impressed with it.

    cheers

    I'm chuffed with my Kamleika smock. I found the zip on the jacket meant it didn't fit quite as well, but that's personal preference; material is the same. Comfortable to wear (more than the Minimus, IMO), which means it gets more use than just as a running jacket, and seems to perform better than my Inov8 "condom". If you're going to be at the XC in a couple of weeks you're welcome to have a look at it.

    Also, OMM customer service (through Needlesports) was spot on; had a slight issue with some stitching which was immediately sorted out. 👍

    Another vote for the OMM Kamleika smock. Had it for a couple of years now and have had no issues whatsoever with it. Kept me lovely and dry and warm throughout this year's torrential mountain trial.
    I prefer the smock to the jacket as I think the full length zip is unnecessary and its easier to get on in a gale force wind. MrsS has the jacket (equally satisfied) and prefers it to the smock so just a matter of preference I guess.

    Thanks guys. It would ultimately be a running, dog walking jacket and it does look more substantial.

    May see you there Mr H.

    I think the jacket has 2 waist pockets and the smock just the one on the chest so that may be relevant if dog walking!
