Got the liitle bargin thingy through the post from cotswold the other day. In it Rab powerstretch zip top £40 reduced from £80. Looks good. But hang on, isn't the powerstretch Zip top about £50 usually. And if you pop onto the Cotswold website lo and behold there is the Top listed both under the half price offer and for £50. The only mitigation I can see is that the £50 version looks like an older version (no little chin prtotector at the top of the zip).
So have I missed something and grasped the wrong end of the stick (quite possible!!) or have Cotswold atificially infalted the price just to discount it?
Typical Costwolds behaviour IME. They slip these price hikes in all around the shop amongst the rrps.
eg. just by the door in my local branch they have a basket of Regatta 'Packaway' wp jackets - £30 and troos £20.
I use the same for work and summer walks. But I get mine from the local 'countryside store' for £13 and £8 respectively - less than half the Costwolds price!

There's definately a law saying that you can't have a sale price unless the quoted full price has been advertised for at least 30 days. There are probably ways to get round it though.
EAsy. Go elsewhere.
Probably a slightly different version so technically they might be right.
