It’s raining where I am right now and hasn’t really stopped for a whole week. I’ve been almost permanently moist for about 170 hours and I’m not enjoying it.

What would make my life better would be a cessation of precipitation but failing that I would love a Blackburn rain jacket. The waterproof GORE-TEX 2 layer jacket, has a fleece line collar and chin guard and is ideal outdoor wear for your next field trip to the lost Kingdom of Atlantis. It’s lightweight, breathable and can easily be rolled up and popped into a backpack or side sac.

The Blackburn jacket is available for £169 from
