Okay chaps I get asked quite a lot of questions about my jacket by Ridgeline.So I thought I do a quick overview of this bit of gear. I contact Ridgeline and apparently this particular jacket is no longer in production. But sometimes old stocks can be found and some camping and hunting stores and also on some sites on eBay.

great review. I'd only suggest, if someone goes into a store to try something out, then do business with that store. You are getting the benefit of their staff, having something in stock and it's available there and then and the possibility of dealing with returns - these are all costs the store has to cover, unlike an on line business. And it seems unfair to take advantage of a bricks and mortar store when you don't intend to do business there - unless the price is outrageously different.

I was not suggesting that...I was informing viewer that Ridgeline sizes run a tad big.

Sweet jacket(y) I was wondering what that jacket was called. I'm guessing an equipment belt can just be worn on top of it.

For sure you will see that in some of my photos on Esty and Instagram. Less useful set in Oz but you do see it done a fair bit in New Zealand.
