i really like that especially if the pants are included.it may look a little beaten but reapplying wax is not that difficult and there are places you can find on the web that provide that service.as to which jacket that is there is not a whole lot of difference between the trialmaster , rallymaster, roadmaster... each of these are made (or used to be) in different weights with the light weight being the waxed cotton and also a heavier nylon mesh , it think it's cordura . i have both as jackets and use the waxed cotton pants with both.i can't count the times everyone around me was wet and cold and i was dry as a bone and comfortable.i would almost be embarrassed to tell you how old some of my belstaff stuff is but it still looks great, it's almost bullet proof . last year some young fashionable looking character chased me down the sidewalk as he saw me leave watertower place and try to buy my heavy trialmaster off my back. until recently no one knew what it was but every now and then some old grizzly looking biker type would make the comment to me that they really wished that they still fit in their old belstaff. i don't know what to pay but look at ebay and lowball . provided it's not falling apart and everything snaps and zips i like it best with a little character already added.

jsut to be clear, you think its cordura and not waxed cotton? cause im really going after the waxed cotton look...
I heard re-proofing was easy...
this guy is gonna part with it for less than 100$...

it appears to be the light weight waxed cotton trialmaster.it will be written at the bottom of the label.

Or you could forget the re-waxing altogether. This is a Barbour:
