    Yeah too many Aussie stores are stuck in 1999 and keep producing PDF, they should use a auto translate into HTML and put a page up, so frustrating!

    To be fair they are only a small store and have really helpful staff, bought a great jacket(gondwana) from that lasted years it was designed better than my current Macpac jacket, it has alredy killed a phone

    A PDF to HTML converter costs about $30! Will give them better Search Engine presence, and make them easier to list their deals anyhow... I'll stop talking about PDF issues and mention their voucher:

    Camping Country Superstore

    oh and not been a fan of MacPac gear, went into their store in Christchurch after hearing great things and really wasn't impressed!

    Yeah every brand seems to cater for urban hikers now, my MacPac jacket was the best I came across but it like most others has resin coated zips which are supposedly waterproof. It seemed to be waterproof in one direction only, outwards, I found my phone in a puddle of water in the pocket.

    My Gondwana had a flap over the pocket, didn't look as nice but worked flawlessly for years, sadly only Anaconda sell Gondwana now and they don't stock the higher end gear.

    I'm so sick of North Face and Kathmandu, it seems you must have the top of the line outdoor hiking gear for a city rain shower! It's odd!

    I wish Aussie stockists would start supplying Paramo, they're expensive but by far the best outdoor clothing I've ever come across: Páramo waterproof jackets, trousers and outdoor clothing

    They know what people interested in sports and outdoor photography need and want!

    Wow that is a horrible website too, one picture for a 245 pound jacket? Doesn't really make me want to rush out and buy one however this one could be what I want-

    Páramo - Men's Alta II Jacket

    That price is fine my current jacket retailed at about $700au which is why I am so annoyed as I like to buy a decent jacket and give it hell for a few years.

    yeah their website doesn't give enough info. You really have to talk to their reps or look at reviews on youtube

    Paramo Alta II Jacket - GO Outdoors



    a video from one of the biggest outdoor shops in the UK. They've got it for £220: Paramo Alta 2 Men's Jacket | GO Outdoors, but probably find it cheaper, use the Google website and the shopping option to search

    An in depth look at the Paramo Alta II Jacket, available online and in store from GO Outdoors.

    Stay comfortable even in the wettest weather.

    • Fully adjustable, wired, roll away hood
    • Maximum freedom of movement and increased comfort in the shoulder and arm area
    • Adjustable venting and temperature control
    • Increased comfort and protection when load carrying provided by reinforced, double layer shoulder construction
    • Handwarming provided by two 'dry' pockets
    • Easily adjustable cuff design which allows sleeves to be pushed up for cooling
    • Additional temperature control provided by single-handed hem drawcord pulls.
    • 2" drip skirt and scooped tail
    • Handwarming provided by two 'dry' pockets
    • OS map storage provided by one large external working plus large internal dry map storage pocket

    The Paramo Alta II is a lightweight jacket ideal for hill walkers looking to maintain an ideal comfort level without taking layers on or off.

    When on the mountain, you need something that can keep you cool on the incline and cozy on the home run. With adjustable venting and temperature control, you can acheive just that.

    In cooler periods you will appreciate the handwarming pockets and drawcord pulls to keep in heat, and similarly when things start getting heated you can use the roll up sleeve function to ventilate yourself.

    The rollaway hood provides the perfect mix of protection, and no-fuss packing to suit your needs and location.
