Fellsman 2015 Weather Forecast and TNF Storm Stow Jacket

Now then true to the usual weather patterns around the Fellsman weekend (according to folklore built up from over 50 yrs of the event being run) the weather is going to be a bit grim:-

This means navigating will be fun in the rain and low cloud with winds upto 50mph gusts, plus a bit of rain..

Lucky I have got my North Face Storm Stow jacket – a super lightweight waterproof for travelling fast in grim weather – 100% waterproof and taped seams. It packs down to almost nothing, stashed inside the end of its own sleeve with a little drawstring – very neat and tidy (plus very small and light).

V12 has these in stock for £150.. I have used it loads in the rain and snow so far earlier in April before the weather got better and it performed excellently.. Even the zip is water sealed to reduce the damp patch down ones front and the hood has a built in drawstring to tension it brilliantly onto the head to stop it blowing away… Action shots of the jacket, plus poles and my shoes will inevitably find their way onto this blog shortly, there is just the small matter of 61 miles to run in the meantime….
