Has any one tried these?
I asked them about texture and they say they are smooth on both the inside and outside.

Back a couple years ago there was much discussion on these rain jackets. Search and you will see it. They are wonderful. Thick, stiff, and robust. The ones I bought snap and crackle when you put them on. The sizes run small and are women's sizes I believe.

I bought one, the quality is excellent, and yes it is quite thick, smooth inside and out.

Now the downside. The sizing is so ridiculously small it is untrue, I bought the largest xxl and it is no bigger than a large. It is just sitting there back in its bag. I must get round to sticking it on ebay as its no use to me whatsiever

Thank you for the heads up.

Shame as they look quite good.

Hi Merv, If you want I could purchase yours instead. I'm not a big guy so I think it may fit me ok, let me know the chest size in inches to see.

I've noticed from the sizing information in AliExpress adverts that there are essentially two sizing systems. One is the, shall we call it, western sizes we're used to and one is eastern which is about 2-3 sizes smaller. For instance you'd expect a women's M to be dress size 12-14 or around 36-28-36 but from some stores it'll turn out more like 8-10. They never say that of course, you have to find whatever sizing information they offer and work it out.

So Merv, did you get your thing out and run it across the plastic? ;)
