(not tortoise related)
I say "hard" shell, what I really mean is fully waterproof, breathable shell, presumably hard shell. I have no Paramo experience and not about to start sorry! Quite a few sales starting soon so probably a good time to buy and I need by end of March. Just a regular decent shell, ideally
I like but, am not limited to, Rab/Marmot/ME. Looking for value for money, no fixed budget but expect to pay £100-£160 ... £200 definitely too much.
I actually bought my last one (Craghoppers eVent) from someone on here who'd nabbed a few bargains from TK Maxx!
Any suggestions appreciated
Thanks .... Simon.
PS I managed to rip mine with crampons in the bag - have patched it up with Spinnaker tape (albeit a different shade of green), which was okay for a while but comes off in proper rain. Also has sleeve seam coming loose and (despite recent reproofing) one of the arms had several non-beading areas, although it didn't leak to be fair. All in all I should probably replace.

As Serriadh says you can get some bargains if you're willing to wait. Early last year I got a Crux Torq for £130 in a sale on WebTogs because it was older stock - RRP for the current version is £270.
