I saw all the holes in the adidas jacket and decided that where I live in South Wales I would get wet so bought a Gore classic top from Royles in Wilmslow and I think that the Gore jacket is the dogs doo-dahs. Even in minus 7 just after New Year felt toasty. Got caught in a very heavy shower while walking just after and no rain penetration at all.
Mesh does the job BUT be careful of the seams and don't be afraid to use some cream to prevent chafing!!! if the seams rub along the top of the leg and underneath area generally-if that is not too anatomic.
