Ultimate Bargains December 2007

Hi 

We had a great place for Ultimate deals that any of us spotted in the shops, so on the new LFTO world I thought we should have the same topic running, and here seemed a good place. Just incase anyone does not know what this is about. 
So as before, keep your eyes peeled for ultimate bargains are out there so those with less cash can still get great gear at knock down prices. So what counts is saving between RRP and the price you have to pay, as that is the ultimate bargain and of course the gear offered has to be reasonably good. ie the sort of gear you'd tell your mate to buy. Anyone found any unbeatable bargains?

brand outdoorscene breathable

Well I have just been to Winfields at Haslingden.

Bought a Outdoorscene Cubic Jacket

Breathable Waterproof fabric jacket

Indra Fabric 3 years guarantee

Has a zipout fleece

rrp £75.00

was £39.99 Now £24.00

Got it in XL

They had Outdoorscene Izar Jackets at £19.99 but only upto size L

I need a XL as I am Six Foot Three

For me more affordable than the £169.99 Berghaus jackets I had looked at in Millets.

www.winfields.co.uk

Do not know if the Jackets are on the website or just specific to my local shop.:wink:

How did you make that link a click

Hi

Good one.
I note that the link is a click through link. Do you know how you created that.
I've found that you can cop and paste a link and it will remain a link, only if the link contains the right info, ie you cannot just type the link or paste it in from your brower. But it seems that if the link is pasted from a web page, where the link is actually a link it works.
make sense? No! Thought not.
Any ideas how your link worked?

Men's Regular Quilted Down Jacket

 £ 34.50
Men's Regular Quilted Down Jacket


Performance insulation, naturally

There's no finer insulation than nature's own goose down. And we use plenty of it in this jacket: a full 650 fill power's worth, one of the highest performance grades available. Add a tightly woven, wind-blocking nylon shell and you have a toasty warm, versatile top layer. Details include a removable hood; microfleece inner cuffs; two zippered side pockets; two inside pockets, one zippered, large enough for a CD player. Approximate length in medium 74cm/29".

Regatta Headland Children's Walking Boot

A lovely Regatta children's waterproof boot suitable for Hiking as well as everyday wear.

Remember feet expand during exercise and thick socks should be worn (two pairs of thin ones are not the same and do not make for a comfortable trek). A boot a size larger than the current shoe size may be appropriate and ensure they don't outgrow them before the end of the holidays!



Features:

  • Waterproof footwear with seam sealed upper construction - Internal seams are sealed to resist water penetration
  • Water resistant ATL treated leather - Comfort with built-in protection from the elements
  • Wicking lining - Draws moisture away from the foot to maximise comfort inside the shoe
  • Deep padded collar & tongue - Maximising comfort
  • Speed lacing system - Fast and adaptive fit adjustment
  • Rubberised heel bumpers - Extra protection and durability
  • Dual density shock absorbing footbed - Extra level of protection and comfort underfoot
  • Lightweight, hiking carbon rubber outsole - Hardwearing, durable outsole with aggressive cleat pattern to maximise grip on all terrain

SUPER BOOT
RRP £45.00
YOU PAY £25
