TOG24 Silkstone Mens Waterproof Jacket | Gear Review

We have been homebound for a few weeks now. And it looks like it is going to continue for a while longer. April is when we were supposed to be away on two fabulous activity breaks. Sadly, with the travel industry and most other things abruptly shut, our plans had to be postponed. But that doesn't mean we are stuck in a rut. We have been making use of this time to research about places we would love to visit once the travel restrictions are lifted and things eventually return to normal.

Luckily our local green spaces have remained open during this time and we are making use of the government's allowance of 'taking part in one form of exercise each day' to stay active. And it is on these walks that Bhavin has been putting the TOG24 Silkstone Men's Jacket to test. It is waterproof, windproof and breathable making it a great piece of outdoor clothing, whether you are into camping, walking or hiking.

TOG24 Silkstone Men's Waterproof Jacket

UK's weather has a mind of its own. It is quite unpredictable and can change hour by hour. That is why it is important to have a good, waterproof jacket if you are heading out to experience the outdoors. The Silkstone jacket has been designed for the 'most devilish of Yorkshire downpours', according to the makers. While Bhavin has not had the chance to put the jacket to test in heavy downpours, based on his experience so far, he terms the Silkstone jacket a very function-centric jacket. It is well made, has a good fit, is lightweight, windproof & breathable and has a classic, yet modern style.

Bhavin also put the Steward Men's Waterproof Trousers to test. These 100% waterproof trousers are perfect for trail walking, camping, walks with your dog or any other scenario where you need to keep yourself dry in wet weather. 

Made from a 5k rated waterproof and windproof fabric, the trousers have fully taped seams and a durable, invisible water-repellent finish so the water drops simply roll off the fabric. The trousers are also breathable and are easy to wear and remove because of the adjustable stretch waist design and Velcro covered zips at the ankle to open up the legs.
