At that price why don't you just take a punt on it if you can't find anyone who's tried it? It's got a hydrostatic head of 15,000 so it's probably OK. I googled and found mixed reviews of Dare2b. Most people said their stuffs great but some said their waterproofs were as bad as mountain warehouse (and from personal experience mountain warehouse is bad). Lots of people think waterproofs leak when they sweat though as you probably know.

I am wearing one of there wicking tops right now, stitching is ok and comfortable. I haven't tried their waterproofs, though I gather dare2b is the sister company of regatta.

Good find, might be tempted to get the better half a pair at that price as she's a size 7 👍

When I bought my Alta 2 the 'small' size for me proved to be a 'medium' in reality. Mine has lasted me 4 years without a difficulty but my zip let me down last Sunday, which is a real irritant!

Lidl are currently selling polyester base layers for 4.99, tops and trousers in black and grey - some have a hood too.


I bought a top (without hood) - seems pretty decent.
