Bealey Men’s GORE-TEX Jacket $239.99 (Was $399.98) + $10 Delivery ($0 for Members/ C&C) @ Kathmandu


According to a friend of mine Gore-Tex is meant to be the best material for waterproof jackets due to very high water resistance and wind resistance while remaining breathable (so it does not trap sweat inside).

I was keeping my eye on this jacket as it was one of the cheaper Gore-Tex jackets on the market. It is now on sale at 40% off normal retail price.

This jacket is just an outer shell and does not have any built in insulation. For winter you would need to wear this jacket over a fleece or down to stay warm.

Comes in Blue, Black and Grey colours. All sizes available except for grey colour at time of posting.

    This is only 2 layer gore-tex, not 3 layer.

    • Yeah 2 layer gor-tex plus Kathmandu's sales model plus just being Kathmandu means I'd question how much of a bargain this really is.

    George: It's Gore-tex. You know about Gore-tex?
    Jerry: You like saying 'Gore-tex', don't you?

      Even after 30 odd years I can't see the word Gore Tex and not think of Seinfeld.

    Dont fall for Kathmandu's bullshit supposed "sales" they have everyday.

    Edit: maybe it's a good sale, I don't know. Just expressing my distaste for Kathmandu's dirty marketing tactics.

    I have this jacket (bought one a couple years ago but it's basically the same). It's actually relatively warm in winter. The Gore-Tex does help to keep the rain off your skin and clothes, but the outer shell is not waterproof and gets pretty saturated. I like the jacket overall, I think I paid a similar price for it at the time.

    Shame really. Been into Kat on 50% specials sales and staff near on begging me to buy . Thermal unders - very average quality but helped - no more.

    The gum tree colour is available in all sizes for $175.20, due to an extra 20% off clearance (and free shipping for members).

    I watched this regarding Gore-Tex recently and I now equate it with any other reputable brand's water proofing.

      Cheers, that was an interesting watch. I wish he named the few brands that do it better. Is that in another video?

        Unfortunately no, but I agree with you - it would be good to know. Glad you thought it was interesting too!
