I have a Ridgeline smock. Great if you are not moving around too much. Otherwise you'll sweat your nads off. I also have a Swedeteam smock which is Gortex. Very breathable, great hood and cuffs. Limited pockets. BUt fantastic when the weather turns absolutely foul. For day to day wear,you will not go far wrong with Nomad, But they do take some time to dry off when they get wet.

Mate of mine has a "swazi" smock not sure on the model he rates it highly. He says the ridgeline jackets are rubbish in comparison. There a bit pricey though.

I should reckon that they are a pain to get on and off when they are wet.

I've been thinking of getting a ridgeline smock but then I luke the look of swazi and nomad gear (expensive like) but I suppose you get what you pay for. Going to have a look into deerhunter and swedeteam other wise it's a toss up between nomad an swazi

I've used the eaton on grouse moor n open fe now days never let in but most important of all breathable for all day wear ugly though but very functional worth every penny imho
