Walked over to Chatswood this evening to look at some more gear – my goal was to get a waterproof jacket and Polartec fleece.
I had previously found a jacket that fit me in Columbia (and a variation on that jacket at Mountain Design), but I found a better fitting Mountain Hard Wear jacket with better features at Paddy Pallin in Chatswood for around the same price. It actually turned out to be cheaper with the sale on at the moment, so I bought the jacket along with another pair of Ex-Officio boxers and Leanne found a pair of The North Face pants that suited her.
I looked at fleeces, found a nice fitting one in Columbia that wasn’t Polartec and I wasn’t sure it would be warm enough, so I kept looking and found another in Mountain Design. I wasn’t convinced, so I decided not to buy it – would wait until tomorrow when we go into town to look at the larger stores there.
