AJ Sou'wester

Please note that products from AJ Group are made to order so this item can take up to 28 working days for manufacture.

During the summer months (May through to August) there may be additional delays caused by suppliers being on holidays. The delays can reach up to 7 Weeks so please bear this in mind when ordering. Also, phone and email support may be slower during this period as a result of this.
(From Waterproofs4you website)

I ordered these Sou'westers in April 2016 they arrived June 13th 2016 but was described as a possible 7 weeks delay as they do have to be manufactured.
Not been tried in wet weather as they have only just arrived.
They are a little bit tight but they are a one size fits all.

Nice tie strings with a toggle for tightening the Sou'wester and the hat should not move in high winds.
The back of the Sou'wester is long so rain etc will not run down your neck.

I bought two of these.
Fluro Blue and Fluro Orange.
Well packaged on arrival

They do look good, are they made from heavy pvc?
I am looking at buying a long smock in yellow from them at some time before autumn.
Will you let us know how it performs outdoors when the time comes as it would be good to order with the raincoat.
Thanks.

Oh wow, the blue looks so shiny! I'm really excited now, I ordered a 3/4 length raincoat & sou'wester in the shiny blue, although they probably won't arrive until summer so it may be some time until I get to wear them in actual rain.

Yeah they just contacted me to let me know it would be delayed 2 weeks due to the company closing down to go on holiday. So I'm looking at some time in June (I ordered on April 15th)

That is still with in the 7 week time line!
I had that last year but they are honest about delivery time so you know you may have a wait!
Other times of the year it is usually four weeks wait.

If what the local weather forecasters in Wisconsin are saying is true, it should arrive just in time for our annual severe summer thunderstorms. fingers crossed.
