New Foul Weather Set $85 - GREAT!

I ordered a set of this for a friend as a gift. It is so high-end, and well made that I ordered a set for my husband, just to have when his weather gear">foul weather gear wears out. My husband has a well known, brand name and when he tried this on, he said: "this is nicer than what I already have."

This would easily cost you $300-400 elsewhere. Free shipping too. I suggest ordering up a size, I did for each of them. That way you have room for warm clothes underneath (if needed) and plenty of room for movement.

A brighter color would be better, but reflectives are good and the hood is NEON, chartreuse yellow.

$84.99 is for the set (jacket and bib)!

Re: New Foul Weather Set $85 - GREAT!

I have a pair of these bibs I bought on ebay for about $50 almost 2 years ago (bought a different brand jacket to go with it). They kept me dry during Irene after my North Face gear couldn't keep up... The set on ebay is still well over $100 (haven't looked in a while, so I'm not quoting here).

They don't have a brand name, but they are definitely as good or better than any basic foulies from major brands. Also better fitting than the West Marine brand foulies.

Looks like a good deal, great find

Re: New Foul Weather Set $85 - GREAT!

If the link doesn't work for you .... It is Overstock.com

Item#: 13977818

They run quite true to size actually, but my friend who usually wears and XL, took and XL and my husband who usually wears a L, took and XL for the movement room. However, they both has a little extra room.

I hope you like them as much as we do.

It appears they use IP geolocation and use that to display different prices to different markets. May I ask what price was displayed to you?

For Poland they displayed 412.95 PLN, which at today's exchange is US$ 130.. If it is for shipping it is quite steep..

Re: New Foul Weather Set $85 - GREAT!

94,00 Euro' s something. At present rate that is about $117,50.

But for 94.00 Euro' s I wont nowhere get a jacket and trouser of off shore quality.
The cheapest combination overhere runs at the double. If quality is ok than it is worth the gamble. People here believe in HH, Musto and similar (expensive) brands.

That is still cheap if quality is comparable to Musto, Helly Hansen, or similar brand. But that I cannot see.
Maybe you can give more info. I can' t see the quality of used fabric and if it' s really watertight.

Look good but trying to buy is sterling these guys are charging the equivalent of $118! It's not ok when you have shipping on top.

Re: New Foul Weather Set $85 - GREAT!

Including shipping it comes to US$ 148,--

Again, when it is of Musto quality then it is worth it. Cheapest here sells for around 200 Euro' s minimum (250 US$)

Re: New Foul Weather Set $85 - GREAT!

And, before you even get to see your checkout quote, you must give them your email and register. Luckily, there are temporary email providers

Anyway, for me the final quote is:

item subtotal: 412.94 PLN
shipping: 317.07 PLN (yeah, right)
duty & VAT: 262.88 PLN
order total: 992.89 PLN - equal to US$ 312...

which is over a street price here. Good try

Edit: (not to multiply posts, a short clarification here)

@Darby
Just to make it clear - it is not directed at you. It is great that you found this deal and good luck to all who can take advantage of it. It was more to show that some companies doing business over the net do not care much about 'overseas' orders apparently.

@ MRM, sorry it's not a bargain for you!

@MacG .... We have not used it yet, so I cannot speak to water tight, but it is as well made as anything I've seen and better than many. Great stiching, double velcro cuffs on the sleeves of the jacket, velcro cuffs on the pants, velcro flap over jacket, very warm, heavy duty zippers, many pockets inside and out with velcro closures, conture stiching at "bends" for comfort and durabilty, Teflon coated, Cordura fabric.

No, I don't have a vested interest in anyone buying (LOL), I just love bargains and a good value.

Thanks,
Darby

Re: New Foul Weather Set $85 - GREAT!

However, I have been a longtime shopper with Overstock.com and have spent a good amount of money with them. MORE THAN pleased all the time. One time, I sent back a cabinet that I was going to use as a vanity, but decided against -- NOT ONE ISSUE, called them and they were delightful, sent me and RMA and return instructions via email.

I purchased quite a bit from them on my home remodel. All that to say I like the supplier.

Should read: .... velcro flap over jacket zipper ......... contour stitching.....

Re: New Foul Weather Set $85 - GREAT!

This is positive. My boat is heavy, takes a nice slosh of water over and I have no real shelter from the deck, because it is all flush. Gear therefore, must give me more protection.
So I' ll give it a try if no delivery surprises.
