    that yellow colour is really nice, maybe better than the orange.

    I wonder what the most popular colour is? maybe the orange?

    Is the SS version Mackintosh though? I know End's description says so, but it said with the AW ventile versions too. I know Kafka says it's bonded and their AW description says ventile so maybe it is.

    We shall see, ordered the Cameraman/vest in a 48, after reading all I could seems to be the way to go (that would be size down). Am also intrigued by the vest and the price and return policy were attractive....

    FWTW...Ventile has limited breathing capability's as compared to modern "Tech" wear ie. Arc'teryx/Veilance/Gore tex and there variants etc.
    Have full Ventile pieces "Stone Island" etc. and in extreme wet/muggy weather they are warm to say the least closer to waxed/oil jackets..

    Thanks for the feed back....

    I like mine. Worn without the vest it doesn't seem particularly oversized to me. Obviously the vest does add bulk but not in a bad way IME.

    I really like the look of the Ten-C snow smocks & M65s, but there have been quite a few comments in the Ten-C thread about how they break down and lose water resistance very quickly, so that plus the price have put me off a bit. Maybe for next winter.



    I'm afraid I wouldn't know, the only cameraman I have is from a few years back (2010?) and is the mackintosh/herringbone tweed version.

    I have the navy / stone ventile version cameraman , and as it's quite thin I couldn't see how a vest underneath it would work ..

    As a fabric both single and double layer Ventile is considerably more breathable than the latest pro-shell offerings from Arc' or even the MVP class leader Neoshell. Where it falls down is on waterproofing. If you're certain your jacket is being overwhelmed from the inside then it could be just too hot to wear a jacket or may be a design flaw. I've never had a problem with NC ventile and my ghost parka breathes well but I had an older SI ventile coat which had a really dodgy DWR and wetted out from the inside.

    ^That is what I thought, that you are giving up some waterprooofiness for breathability. One of the advantages of Ventile over tech / modern fabrics.

    ^ This is good to know, have been moving away from Tech wear primarily for esthectic reasons. My real world experience with Ventile in Sub or Tropical climates has been that one over heats. To fair though I do not be live these fabrics were meant to be used in such places.

    The options in Archival clothing would be "Jungle Cloth" or some other densely woven fabric ?

    For those of you who have experience with "Everest Parka" would like to hear about the effect of WET snow on the coat.

    Thanks a great thread....

    I too read all the stuff about Ten C on here too which did put me off a little bit. However I think I'm a little bit different to most people on here as I work in the construction industry Monday to Friday and wear workwear so with the rotation of my jackets they get worn on average once a month. They are mostly for fashion purposes although warmth is a lot more important to me than rain resistance.
    I just had to own the Ten C with Shearling, it's incredible.

    I was about to buy the TEN C short parka about a year ago, but was so put off by the comments that I didn't... The fabric is incredible, very much like a rough lotus leave and stiff as hell... Love it

    The Everest is designed for extreme cold/dry conditions. I believe it still uses a non dwr single ventile L34 (only 750mm hydrostatic head) and non hydrophobic goose down.
    I think it's a wonderful fashion piece but if you wear it in milder/sleet/rain conditions you risk soaking through and turning the down into porridge.

    If you spend an hour in a tropical storm perhaps but snow is not going to soak through ventile. The Everest should be fine in a snow storm

    Yeah it's fine in proper snow.
    It really is a fantastic jacket but I think you need to live in the right climate to get the best out of it. I got rid of mine because living in England I probably only wore it half a dozen times in as many years.

    Going for the formal pant and business suit. Find it really though to decide if I should go for a 46 or 48 in the jacket. Maybe some of you gents can give me some wisdom. Here's me with a 48 cricket jkt

    Works fine here since there's no buttons on the sleeve so I can roll it up otherwise it looks like this [​IMG] Would really appreciate your help (waist in the bloomers is 32").

    Recived the Cameraman/vested model and like it a lot the weight/fabric is what I was looking for also very pleased with color way of the coat. As for the issue with the vest being apparent I find it hardly noticeable at all and I sized down one size from the "Mallory" which may have been a mistake.
    IMO for my body type these run TTS
    Have yet to decide as to keeping or try and exchange for the 50 if one is available ?

    Thanks and have fun Y'all

    I love Cabourn but £150 for a t-shirt is taking the piss.
