19 Aug Staying dry in Norwegian Rain

Want to keep warm and dry this winter, without looking like a Polar explorer or a rap star – then try some Norwegian Rain. Anoraks and parkers are fine in cloudbursts but here at gg2g we’re fans of of full length coats. Call us old fashioned – but we like to keep dry.  It’s why we thoroughly approve of the current range of waterproof macs and coats from Bergen at Norwegian Rain: Built like tanks, just a bit lighter, totally waterproof – and very cool. Each has two layers of water repellency, detachable thermal linings, and a ‘water tunnel’ (like those in cars) to funnel water away. Heat sealed seams, most with storm flats and others with hoods and and shearling collars. They come in all shapes and sizes but we’re opting for this season’s Moscow, available for men and women. Swiss woolen wading for insulation and roomy enough for a jacket or heavy sweater beneath.
