What happened to Scotland ?

I'm English, and I was pleased when there was a "no" vote in the Scottish referendum. But sometimes English thoughtless arrogance does make one think that the SNP have a point. The current OS Map survey on this site is a fine example Yes I know you've listed the best selling Yes I know there are some Welsh ones in as well as English But to ask which is the best in the UK without including any Scottish ones???

Fj%XE4llr%XE4ven Keb Loft Jacket (2014)

When the thermometer goes negative, down insulation is what most of us turn to. But down loses some of its insulating performance when wet, making it less than ideal for the UK; and it%X92s pricy.
