All our fabrics are coated in the UK rather than imported. Although this means they might not be the cheapest, it means they are of the best quality and therefore do not compromise our years of experience in manufacture of waterproof clothing.

In times past we have tried various imported fabrics, and never found anything as good as Good Old British Made! We are very proud of this manufacturing ethic, and the proof is in the quality and durability of our products.

Our 4oz pu (polyurethane) coated nylon (non-breathable) and 4oz pu Exeat coated nylon (breathable) are made here in the UK and are premium quality. We have tried others in the past but always came back to these fabrics. Nothing compares….

Our 8oz neoprene coated nylon is our most durable fabric – it can take some stick! Used widely in Outdoor Education Centres for all sorts of activities for many years it has stood the test of time. We still occasionally get garments back for repair that are over 20 years old! Also sourced in the UK.

Our 3-layer is manufactured in France using a breathable Event membrane and has a nylon face for durability – a lovely quality fabric with excellent breathability.

Ventile is a most special fabric. It is 100% cotton, therefore completely breathable. It works by the fibres swelling when damp to block the water. It also draws away moisture from the body. All our garments are double layer Ventile to make a pretty much impermeable shell.

Our materials come in different weights, degrees of breathability and a variety of colours:

Sizing Chart

The following sizings may be used as a guide, although of course there may be much individual variation, particularly in children. Our chest and leg measurements are bases on body measurements (not those of the garment). Waterproof garments are amply sized to allow plenty of room for clothing underneath. Leg lengths are deliberately a little on the short side so the overtrouser sits on the boot top rather than allowing them to get scuffed under the heel.
