    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.

    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.

    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.
