    OK I’ve spent a year in this jacket. I’ve taken it on multiple summits and full days in some pretty terrible weather, through winter its my go to it gets abused and yet its has never let me down. Everything you want from a heavyweight shell, keeps the distractions of the weather to a minimum so you can get on with the task at hand. Stop fucking around and buy one you won’t regret it.

  2. Josh Kind

    The Raid is unbeatable in the heavyweight waterproof jacket category. On a recent trip to Pen Y Fan in South Wales we were met with horrendous amounts of weather. The Raid never once let a drop of water through.

    I’ve had other branded waterproof jackets before but after a while they normally give in, not this one. I was completely bone dry underneath and more importantly warm.

    Even a simple hike can turn into something very nasty and this was one of those. Many company’s claim their gear is better than the rest but few go to the lengths these boys do.

    ThruDark test their kit to the extreme, pushing the materials used to the brink of destruction. They never release or rush a product until they are 100% happy with it.

    The Raid is worth every single penny in my eyes, with the amount of deign, testing and most importantly the ThruDark promise that it won’t let you down.

    If your looking for a waterproof jacket that beats all others and will safely return you back from your adventure warm and dry then you’ve found it!

    After all you’re only as good as your kit so why not make it the best.

  3. Pauly O

    Have owned a lot of high end adventure brands over the years and this is by far the best shell I have owned. Quite a pretty penny here in the USA with our worthless exchange and all…living in Buffalo NY, our winters are riddled with snow, wind and brutal cold. I’ve had this jacket in 35mph winds, downpours, freezing rain and snow. It has performed flawless on all accounts. Just ensure you have proper insulation. Currently selling off my other other adventure brands. They are not needed.

  4. willpim711

    Amazing Jacket, delivers on so many levels, I’m very happy with it and is perfect for winter weather. The fit is great and its really comfortable.
    The small details make it unique and different from other jackets.
    The quality of the material and design is unparalleled, The Thru tech from the R&D ops and knowledge of the Thrudark team really shows.
    Well worth the money and great customer services

  5. leigh Ibberson

    I debated buying this jacket for a long time, as for me I thought spending that sort of money on a jacket I’d be too afraid t use it for what it’s designed for, but now I have won’t be looking back.

    When the jacket arrived I realised the quality of the jacket eliminated all my fears of not wanting to wear it, so I set off with my weighted pack over the sas fan dance route on the brecons in the early hours of the morning in blistering winds and rain… the elements around me were insignificant the Raid jacket kept the conditions out and I could solely focus on the task ahead!!

    When you don’t have to think about the conditions around you, you know your wearing the right kit!

  6. Scott

    Like others I waited a long time pondering buying one of these jackets due to the price but like many others I am not disappointed. Having owned most other high end brands there is usually a small snag with each. Not with this one the quality of materials and workmanship are second to none. Attention to detail likewise such as quality of cuffs and fasteners and general fit which is the most comfortable jacket I’ve ever owned. No hesitation in future purchases one of many items I’m now proud to own and also excellent personal customer service. Thanks much appreciated

  7. Ruud Kok

    I received my jacket yesterday and i am stunned about the quality, it looks and feels very strong.
    Over the years i have owned various well known outdoor brands but they didn’t look as well made as this jacket.
    It fits like a glove, very comfortable and everything is in the right place.
    Yes it is slightly pricy but so are other brands and they lack in quality compared to the Thrudark.
    Can’t wait to get out on my next “adventure”

    Also the customer service and delivery is second to none, really pleased with it.
    It won’t be the last item I’m buying with Thrudark, that’s for sure!!

  8. Malcolm

    Where better to put the jacket to test than the Isle of Skye?

    It handled everything thrown at it, strong winds, heavy, persistant rain and snow on the summits.

    Kept me dry and warm and it looks badass!

  9. Matthew Meyler

    Well well well, I’m on my 4th TD jacket now, all different and get used often. The RAID though! wow! This thing is simply unbeatable! My new (Well known brand) first Goretex jacket I bought for Xmas let me down massively a few weeks ago as I was climbing pen-y-fan. Last weekend I faced much worse conditions up penYfan and on the Sunday a local hike up Pendle Hill, the conditions where worse and this jacket just laughed it’s arse of at the rain and wind! It’s ridiculous the amount of research these guys put in and I simply won’t buy any other brand now. I get they are more expensive and out of reach for some, but if you can stretch, MY GOD ITS WORTH IT!

  10. Chris

    Stop pissing around and bye it. I have had this jacket for 6 months now, I live in the Lake District. I have just Spent the day on the fells in storm Denis, this jacket is on point, it hasn’t breached. It’s not often these days that you get what you pay for. Believe the hype this jacket delivers. And yes it looks cool as ****.

  11. Glenn stone

    This jacket is amazing have just spent 4 days winter mountain training up in the Cairngorms through storm Ciara the conditions where brutal wind speeds of 80mph -20 temperatures above 800 meters with driving snow and on lower levels driving rain.

    This jacket did not miss a beat even after 10 hours on the mountain I was so warm and dry and insulation and never once did I think it’s just a mater of time before the water gets in like on other jackets I’ve had.

    You will never own another outdoor jacket after you have used sf raid jacket it’s an astonishing bit of kit ??

  12. Ryan

    An incredible jacket, the quality is sublime and fits like a glove. Its strong and robust and will keep you very dry.
    If this is the standard of quality from Thrudark I will be buying plenty more from your range.

  13. Luke Robinson

    Great bit of kit, worth every penny. A recent trip to the Alps and the Raid jacket coped perfectly in all winter weather conditions mother nature threw at us.

    The design detail is outstanding and the over sized hood worked at treat in some nasty summit days. Excellent and ample storage options too! Best jacket I have ever brought hands down.

  14. Glenn Littlewood

    Quality and attention to detail, as usual, is just outstanding. The best heavy duty shell jacket I’ve ever owned…bye bye Arcteryx LEAF Alpha jacket.

  15. Barnaby Schooling

    Amazing company, and amazing jacket. I’ve taken this all over from Australian rainforest to the alps and uk mountains. Been in some torrential downpours and its kept me dry as a bone, whilst being breathable so you dont get soaked in sweat. The adjustable hood is really good when wearing a climbing hat and the material of the jacket is super tough. Slid down rocks relentless times and the jacket still looks new. The customer service with thru dark is also second to none as well as the delivery service fast and reliable. Extremely strong company, 100% recommend them.

  16. David Pickersgill

    Got the Raid last week and wore it yesterday in some of the worst weather we’ve had. It was like being insulated from the elements. The fit is perfect and you move so easily in it. I love it

  17. Adrian Chubb

    Had the Raid Jacket for coming up a year now and it’s done everything it said it’s going to do on the Overview and Technical sections on the website.

    Since arriving it’s served me well in all weather conditions in the Scottish Mountains, including getting submerged in a river in spate; remaining dry underneath.

    Honestly say it’s a top class bit of kit and wholeheartedly recommend purchasing one.

  18. Rinica Warner

    Well after ordering my 1st item a few weeks ago which was the benne hat in green it was time to look at one the jackets and the raid looked like one the top jackets that would get you ready for the adventures ahead so after the what size will I need I decided to go for the green raid in size XL.
    Made the order on Friday took advantage of the price dropping which I was so happy and lucky to get my size the order was placed and just like before kept right up to date on delivery and delivery date the service is top class and they go beyond in keeping the customer happy.
    Now for the jacket service again so rapid and fast it arrived on Tuesday and again blown away how much this jacket looks so amazing the feel the finish the little touches on the pull string on the hood and just the the sheer quality of the finish 10-10 with one more point added to the level of service to the jacket to me so fast.
    If you are looking for jacket that will get you to end of your adventure and get ready for the next one and the next one then this jacket is for for sizing I would look at going up a size if you going to and need to wear a base layer XL fits like a large and it looks very nice on 4 big pockets and 2 inside plenty of storage and hood is amazing I can only say a massive thank to the company and team for the level of service you give to your customer even down to post card and bag the jacket comes in I am now looking at red raid and going to be looking forward to getting back to hills when we are allowed and I will leave another feed back when I have tested this top class jacket if you looking at price and thinking ? a bit expensive think again you are getting a lot for your money and hands down you will not be disappointed that I will say definitely a top brand and exclusive you will not look back once you have this jacket on top class my next purchase will be red raid in red just have to save now lol but once you to go Thrudark you will not go back to any other brand or jacket that I can honestly say just don’t leave it to late you might miss out on a very top service and next level jacket ?????

    “The jackets are way too expensive.”

    That’s probably the most common complaint online I’ve seen about ThruDark.

    If you’re thinking the same thing, here’s my advice: get yourself a second job or piss off to North Face.

    The clothing line is worth every penny. This is the sixth piece of ThurDark gear I’ve purchased and it’s bloody faultless. My new Raid Jacket has been amazing, with heaps of layer protection against the cold elements. I went for a hike this morning in 5C weather and didn’t feel anything. All I had under my jacket was my ThruDark shirt and I still felt warm. I’m already looking at the Breach Jacket for my next ThruDark purchase.

  20. Craig Mann.

    Just wanted to say thanks guys, I received my SF Raid in green a couple of weeks ago and I’ve finally had the chance to try it in the wind and rain. It’s fantastic and I can’t wait to try it out in some serious weather later in the year. Over the years I have used many different fabric types, but none can match the Raid. If you are in the market for a serious hardshell jacket don’t waste your time looking at the massive choice available just get one of these.
    Fantastic product from a fantastic company.

  21. Mr M

    This is my third outer garment from the guys at THRUDARK and I have to say it is a great piece of kit. I opted for the Raven Grey, a great alternative to the Black. I have been issued lots of kit over the years, but nothing comes close to the this. The zippers and taped seams are designed to last, the fit is comfortable allowing for freedom of movement,far better than some of the high priced American brands. I am planning a return visit to Finland this winter, this will be part of my kit and hopefully some of the new base layers that are due in for winter.
    If you are looking for great kit designed and tested by the people who know, then you wont go far wrong with this… Don’t just take my word for it, look at what others have to say…Keep up the good work guys…..Always Stepping Forward…

  22. craiggarbutt

    I have been a member of the dead bird society for years…. (Arc’teryx LEAF)

    Their kit was far superior to anyone else’s on the market for years…..

    Until Now!!

    This jacket is a heavy weight waterproof and the materials used on the coat look to be far harder wearing and robust than any other jackets of similar cost on the market at the moment. The taped seams and stitching on the coat are absolutely perfect and the build quality of the jacket is 100%.

    I also own an Arc’teryx Alpha SV and the cut of the SF Raid jacket is similar, you get full range of movement and the jacket doesn’t ride up when you have your arms in the air at full stretch, which is needed when scrambling around in the lake district / Snowdonia / Scotland or indeed anywhere else on the planet!

    The chest pockets are great and are standard on most other brand jackets of this nature, Thrudark has added the hip pockets as well which are great and highlights Thrudark’s attention to detail.

    I’m a bit of a kit geek, and when looking to replace my Alpha SV have researched, looked at and sampled every other jacket on the market of similar cost and design.

    I can confidently state that I have found this jacket to be the best with regards quality, features and fit.

    The jacket is expensive, but the bitterness of poor quality stays with you long after the sweetness of a low price is forgotten. So if you want a top quality waterproof jacket that will last many years then buy or save for this one.

    You will not be disappointed!

    I first discovered ThruDark after I seen the clothing on SASWDW and immediately checked it out. I liked everything that was on offer but the price was high but within good reason to which I can fully justify. I first bought the Recce Beanie as it was relatively cheap in comparison to other things and because it looked really good. When it arrived I was not disappointed and is the best wooly hat/beanie I’ve ever had. It’s lightweight, warm and tries quick after being in the rain which is needed up here in Scotland.

    I had my eye on the Raid Jacket since I first found the brand and said that I would get it one day. Over lockdown I was doing a lot more outdoor activities and finally decided that I needed a high quality water proof jacket that also looked good, so I went ahead and purchased it and don’t regret it at all. The quality is incredible and has everything you need from a jacket, I kept finding small things with it as the days went on. It’s my go to jacket for walking the dog or going out adventuring and easy to carry around in case of a rain shower. Yes the price tag is expensive but you’re getting what you pay for and that’s an amazing product. No complaints from me whatsoever!

  24. Andrew

    Just received the jacket. You can see straight out of the bag it is a quality product, with quality components. The riptop is excellent with very small rip weaving meaning that approx only 3-4mm will rip at anyone time – this was the main reason for getting the product.

    I have the Skirmish jacket which really is just a shell but this jacket has more weight and you could probably get away with wearing a very light weight mid layer, yet still feel warm.

    Well done lads, top product.

  25. Richard Tiley

    Like many others here, I have tried any number of ‘big name’ waterproof jackets, all of which have come up wanting. So, it was with some trepidation that I ordered the Thrudark iteration.

    Many ‘heavyweight’ waterproofs are stiff and ‘boardy’ but not the SF Raid. Yes, the fabric feels really tough but it is supple too. Add to that an incredibly good cut, allowing for all sorts of movement and hindering none, and you have an extraordinary jacket. The sizing, too, is brilliant, allowing for layers underneath but never giving the feeling of being swamped by acres of surplus fabric

    In use, all of its qualities shine through. On a recent backpacking trip to Skye, it took the Raid instead of a lightweight jacket and I was very glad I did. Caught in ferocious winds on the Trotternish Ridge, the jacket kept me both warm and dry; the following day, the performance was repeated in the pouring rain. I can hardly wait to give it an outing in the snows and blizzards so often encountered in the Cairngorms!

    The only, tiny niggle I have is with the hood brim. A wire stiffener would stop the brim from flapping into my face when not wearing a cap underneath. It’s a small detail in an otherwise perfect jacket. In fact, I have now added a Zodiac to my collection as I reckon that the two will be ideal for any of the weather that the U.K. can serve up.

    The combination of Thrudark and Schoeller is a match made in heaven for anyone who ventures into the outdoors. I, for one, am both delighted and impressed. Thank you.

  26. Dave Mee

    So when you’re out for a long time in really severe weather the Raid shines… The Zodiac is great for on / off weather where it’s showers more than driving rain, but when it comes to the heavy stuff, this jacket feels rock solid.

    The fabric looks and feels special… it breathes really well… far better than I though a heavyweight jacket would. Massively confident in its protection factor and durability.

    It just feels remarkably well made and seriously comfortable to wear. Very impressed yet again.

  27. t.maisonobe

    Once again, glad i bought it.
    Be it the gear or the customer service, it does not get better.
    Buy with confidence.

  28. Jamie Smith

    SF Raid in black, XXL.
    I’m 6’1” and 112kgs, solid 36-38” waist so I go on Dan’s sizing. Fits like a glove, with enough room to layer up. Great, no problem got big gentlemen to own one!
    The Jacket….absolutely incredible quality, design, construction and performance planning has gone into this item. Stopped me in my tracks when I opened it, from the ThruDark dust bag, boom, what a piece of kit. Material, construction A1, technology,,cutting edge, as I said fit perfect. Thrudark has left nothing out with this jacket it is everything I thought it would be and much more.
    Test Drive being planned. People may look at cost, worth every penny! ThruDark’s SF Raid Jacket…. no just for Christmas, it’s for LIFE🇬🇧👍🏼

  29. Richard Foster

    Just bought the SF Raid, what a jacket, love it to bits. Can’t wait to get out to Pen y fan this weekend. I so hope the rain comes pouring down as it always does when I’m up there,Now I have a proper jacket to tackle the rain.

    Love all your stuff, bought my first item a month ago and now I have 4 bits of kit. Need to get me the long sleeve T shirt next 👌🏻

  30. Joe Walker

    I can honestly say that I can’t fault the SF Raid at all. It’s flawless. I debated for months on wether to get this jacket due to the price and the only regret I have it not buying the top notch bit of kit much sooner.
    The material just feels like it will last for decades and water beads off it like no other. Why buy a few £200 jackets when you can get one so well made it will last for life.
    Absolutely hoofing, if your like me and keep looking at the products and debating if it’s worth the price then gen just stop and get it bought.
    Class service, class product. Looking forward to the next item.

  31. Mike W

    Bought the Mk 2 in Olive Green and love it – fits perfectly, looks great and love the detail and thinking behind it. Wished I’d waited for the Mk 3 in tan now! 🙈 Definitely recommended.

  32. Rob Halliwell

    As stated in many reviews the price can initially be a stumbling point. Fear not, the old adage you get what you pay for most definitely applies here. The raid jacket arrived well packaged in its own cloth bag and the quality of the finish is akin to a Savile row suit. I don’t think I’ve ever purchased an outdoor clothing garment with so much attention to detail. The fit is exactly as described on the sizing chart.
    Extremely pleased. A quality garment done right and totally fit for purpose, long range shooting in the Welsh and Scottish mountains demands a performance jacket like this.
    Well done Thrudark.

  33. Ben Duncan

    Having an old hard shell jacket that was well overdue replacement I read the reviews and was fairly sold, yes the price is steep but buy cheap, buy twice.
    As soon as I opened the swiftly delivered parcel and took the Raid out of its soft bag I knew I had made the right decision. Amazing material that you can feel the quality of as soon as you touch it, and you know where your money has gone. I do not regret buying this jacket at all, and will be buying more Thrudark gear in the future. Thank you Thrudark team.

  34. Louis

    Received my SF Raid Jacket super quickly (to a EU country). I wasn’t sure about the sizing but fits me perfectly. Just spent the week under the rain and it kept me dry in any circumstances (so far, can’t wait to endure more bad weather). The quality is just outstanding, even more in the details, so I’m confident that it won’t fail. No more cheap clothing that do not last! Thanks ThruDark, for the good energy (and products)

  35. Scott Cameron

    Had this for week now and it’s been up Blencathra in driving snow and wind, didn’t bat an eye lid had base layer t-shirt and Thrudark jumper on and it was amazing, no water in or wind. Quality bit of kit!!

  36. Harry Reeve

    Quality piece of kit, had numerous items from Thrudark and couldn’t fault them. Their attention to detail is second to none.

  37. marc2179

    “ThruDark is over priced”

    If that’s what your thinking this gear isn’t for you and your not as serious as you think you are about Adventure gear. This gear is for people who really appreciate equipment that does exactly what it says it will do.

    I knew I needed a new outdoor jacket for hiking so there was only one jacket I wanted.

    After receiving my jacket it was in use straight away and I can honestly say it’s the best rain jacket I’ve ever used and the only one that actually doesn’t let water in after a while.

    Not only does it keep you warm and dry it looks Ally as f#%k too.

    Up next Charge trousers!!

  38. Jamie Woodward

    So finally decided to get the raid jacket after much deliberating.Obviously the price was a factor,but after it arrived there’s no doubt its totally worth it.A absolute monster of a jacket.Eveything is of the highest quality,which u can feel and see straight away.The rain just runs off,keeps u warm,and I cannot understate how light and easy this is to pack away or carrt.Get one…you won’t regret it.Fabulous product.

  39. Liam Swain

    This was my first purchase from the ThruDark range! So impressed by it I now have bought a further 3 items! With this coat they have thought of everything, the quality of the materials, the zips, oversized hood ensuring no rain will touch your head down to your waist. Well worth the price as it feels like it’s indestructible

  40. Pete

    Like so many have said before, if you’re contemplating it, do it. Yes it’s a big outlay but it’s worth it. Yes it looks cool, but it also functions. I’ve had it out in the driving rain and the snow and it hasn’t yielded. I’ve just followed it up with the Engage jacket too. Love the brand. Top work.

  41. Mr James Stirling.

    Hi guys. I received my parcel early today was ordered late Friday got it early Tuesday the delivery service is excellent and the Thrudark customer service is excellent to. I am myself a former infantry Soldier didn’t have a piece of kit like this. All I can say is treat yourself to a Exceptional & Excellent piece of kit the ( SF Raid Jacket.) I Would Definitely recommend this outdoor Anyone Well done lads at Thrudark I’ll definitely get more items from you. Once again very well done.

  42. Mr James Stirling.

    A follow up from last review. I received the Raid Jacket in size large the Olive green colour. The price is on the high end all I can say is you get what you pay for. Its definitely worth Every Single penny. Have worn the jacket within an hour of its arrival. It does fit like a glove & feels So Comfortable & plenty of room to move about in. It’s looks the business. It’s highly Recommended for everything the money & this kit won’t let you down inthe Harsh Elements when you need it the most. Many thanks Mr James Stirling. Leeds UK.

  43. Darrell Beazer

    Purchased the raid jacket after doing my research. I have bought top brand high end outdoor gear for over 20 years. If you “choose” to get out and about and active in uncertain conditions, there are many brands that are suitable. However if you “MUST” be out and about in these conditions, there is THRUDARK. The raid jacket is indeed THE perfect outer layer. This jacket offers total protection and represents excellent value for money. Love the ethos and all THRUDARK represents. Pleased to join “THE BROTHERHOOD”. Extremely please with this purchase. Top marks to the team! Will be back for more.

  44. Martin P

    My SF Raid jacket arrived today less than 24 hours from ordering it! At this price point, clothes usually arrive in a suit carrier.. but if you expect that you are missing the point. This isn’t a coat designed to ponce around the town in. It is made of pure hard bastard and will challenge you to see who will give up in extreme conditions first; you or the jacket! My money is in the SF Raid coming out on top!

  45. esheldon15

    I’ve read all the reviews on how good this jacket is but I was still surprised when I opened it, the quality is outstanding. It’s clear that every tiny detail has been well thought through and it fits great too. If you’re on the fence go for it, I’ve not seen anything remotely close.

  46. Jayson

    Sure when you looking at the weather and you are wanting a jacket that will definitely keep you dry warm and keep doing it when you are on your adventures you need a jacket that you can take out of your bag it’s ready for what it is made for rough weather. yes this jacket is expensive yes it’s only available on line yes it’s jacket will look at thank very nice but I give a honest answer is the jacket worth the price I can say a big fat yes it’s a outstanding jacket the quality you are paying is definitely a upgrade from Arc’teryx or mountain equipment or rab. I have been using the olive green for nearly 1 year now and it’s been to Scotland been to 3 Yorkshire peaks and also been to wales and it’s the only jacket I have needed and used and it’s performance has been top class kept me warm kept me dry and most importantly did every time I have worn it. I have now treated myself to the black raid and I want for large this time and fits very nice and plenty of room for base layer or micro down or fleece it’s a jacket that will definitely be one I will definitely be using for my upcoming adventures amazing service again from a great company who are going from strength to strength and delivering top class world service thank again for a great service on my black raid jacket sizing was spot on I went for large I medium build 38-40 I think medium would just fit I have plenty of room for base layer 100-100 for jacket 100-100 for the great service again think my next treat will be the smock 👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿

    Had this for over a year now and absolutely love it. I’m always up pen y fan in forever changing weather & it’s perfect, keeps all weather out, but is nice and light on the body. I’ve used it rock climbing, walking through dense forests and it’s still yet to show any signs of wear or tear. Would 100% recommend, don’t think, just buy!!

    I have several hardshell jackets and the Raid is resulting in a clear-out! It’s a heavy-duty jacket, so if you are looking for lightweight mountaineering jacket, this might not be the one, but the Raids design, features are what I struggled to find in others and the quality puts this on top.

    Best jacket I’ve ever owned and then some. Never failed me once and taken everything the British weather can throw at me through multiple hikes in The Cheviots, Lake District & Scotland.

    The gents at Thrudark have absolutely nailed the perfect balance between top quality, style and comfort with this jacket.

    People mention the cost but I’ve always agreed with the “buy nice or buy twice” adage and it’s completely true. You have to pay for quality and I know I’ll still be wearing this jacket in 20 years time.

    Absolutely love Thrudark and their attention to detail and strive to commit to 100% perfection in not only materials but also design, testing and quality control.

    My SF Raid Jacket arrived today. OMFG it’s more than gucci kit, it’s absolutely spot on. The Quality is outstanding just by the look of it right out of the bag.

    Bring on the wind and rain I say

    Great designed piece of gear, esp the great pockets, hood shape that actually works, and climbing compatibility. But it has one major flaw – the material (all layers) let in water. First time out today in a light shower and was wetter on the inside of the jacket than the outside after taking it off. The material selection actually spreads what was once external moisture everywhere inside with great efficiency. Had better performance from a $7 Disney poncho at 1% of the cost. Real shame since I love the brand, and have many of their products. Wear this at altitude in freeing temps though and you won’t be coming home.

    Had been toying with buying one of these for a long while and thought I’d just take the plunge.
    Winter on way needed a bombproof jacket.
    Arrived next day on free delivery well impressed.
    Jacket itself feels top notch.
    Can feel the quality.
    Fit is spot on.
    Now just got the crap weather to arrive and get out and about.
