"Love this product, it’s really been put through the tests. Various uses in the glorious weather of Dartmoor and the Brecon Beacons, the jacket was amazing in both wet and dry conditions. Myself and friends have got this jacket and the FWP and can’t speak highly of them. Lots of thought gone into this jacket with the reinforced shoulders and elbows as well the inserts for elbow pads."

"Bought this to replace my older Keela, which itself was pretty good, but this is a definite step up. When considering both price and functionality I feel that this is the best waterproof smock on the market. The cut and solid construction means you're properly protected from the elements, but the smock is sufficiently breathable that you remain comfortable when moving around dismounted. It's absolutely packed with features and pockets meaning that it excels as a proper standalone smock, rather than just a goretex jacket (in the sense of the issue variety). The reinforcement on the elbows and shoulders is a nice touch."

"After slowly watching a lot of guys I know who are the same role as myself buy Keela smocks I finally gave in and got one. I opted for the para 4 because it’s a little longer. Has more pockets. The inserts in the sleeves for cards are awesome. And the colours are a much closer match to mtp than the older Keela smocks.
I have now had the chance to wear this in a torrential downpour and I can vouch for its waterproof claims.
I am so impressed that I am now considering matching combats."

"Worth every Penny, waterproof, lightweight, warm and very durable, pockets perfectly sized with a massive inner map pocket unlike other smocks I have owned, I also bought the liner 3mths later which complements the smock perfectly very warm indeed and excellent for a CTR or Range day."
