As in title,what you guys got?

Usually I wear a light running style jacket which is ok for slightly cold days but I need something a bit better!

Hi

Decathlon have some decent softshell type jackets for under £50(quechua forclaz 700 is the one i have £25) decent bit of kit for the ££££

If you can find the extra £30 the Rab vapor-rise lite pull on is a awesome softshell/top.........Wind proof highly breathable warm but not to warm and very light and small when packet away, IMO well worth the £££

I got a cheap and cheerful Aldi jobbie from one of their biking special days, bout 15 sovs iirc. Tbf, never felt the need to replace it, great bit of kit. You can spend daft money without getting anything much better than the Aldi jobbie.

Quick heads-up.
Aldi have the jackets/bottoms in again as of 26.04.14. Look to be really good value too.

Montane Dyno or Haglofs boa (from sport pursuit).. both can be had for under £50 in the sales
Dyno is closer fitting and less windproof.
