    Mountain Warehouse microfleece 1/4 zip pullover. 270g and has some structure to it. Very warm for the weight and breathes well. Best of all, half price in their January sale: £12.99.

    I like my MWho Snowdon fleeces, 240g in Medium, I picked a few up a couple of year's back for ~£11 I think.....still good value.

    I though 270g for XL was OK. It has some noticeable 'pinch and release' bounceback and was warm enough for my walk today under my 90g Golite windshirt in 7C air temp with windchill taking that down to 'feels like' 2C according to my weather app.

    Picked up a Tramplite from Colin, going through gear to see what to sell now to avoid a thermo nuclear event at home ;)

    Decent price?

    I've spent about 3 hours tonight looking for the non gtx, cheapest I've found in my size is £98

    Have you been and tried them anywhere? They are a different beast to previous models. I've had mine a while now and I love many of the improvements and the light weight but have a couple of negatives with them. They are more flexible than 12s and I find them to feel like a less stable platform when running in them off road. The lugs on the soles look great but they don't self clean on sticky mud, I guess this is similar to the 12s. I decided I wanted some shoes that were more like the 12s and ended up with Mizuno Wave Mujin 6. I tried 10, my usual size and they were a bit tight so ended up with 10.5s. I know we are all different but I thought I'd mention what I'd found with Cascadia 14s. If you are buying them for walking on trails and rocky ground I think you will really like them, on clay muddy paths not so much. Just my 2ps.

    Cheers, interesting about the sizing as I was debating going 1/2 a size up, maybe order both

    And its hiking rocky trails in the main I want them for.

    Is the Inov8 wind shell the best wind shirt you've had @Chiseller

    Anyone had better. I have a Rab Vital Windshell Hoody and various running windshells but none seem to breathe as well as I would have expected. Maybe I'm just a sweaty git.

    Moved onto the salomon fastwing hybrid... Wipes the floor with the inov8 in terms of fit and breathability.... Not got it wet yet though....

    I've used many over the last thirty years.
    The Arcteryx Squamish is the standout, for cut, breathability, and durability.
    I have lighter (Montbell) but that is not for conditions where humidity reigns... it's clammy.
