    Does anyone recommend any coats or jackets for cleaning windows in now the wet season is here, ideally lightweight and waterproof and not sweat inducing :eek::rolleyes:

    golf windshirts are what iv used the last 3 or 4 yrs. they have a generous cut that allows wide arm movements as in a golf swing/ squeegee arc windshirt.jpg sunderland.jpg elasticated cuffs and waist are features that are very handy too

    i usually buy mine secondhand on ebay. just search for "golf windshirt" . windshirts are lined but you dont ever sweat in them as long as you buy a decent make . my favourite make is Sunderland of Scotland ,as theyre very light weight , these are expensive new maybe £60 + but secondhand £5 or £10 touch

    If you are after something that is waterproof but doesn't make you sweat then you need goretex or an equivalent material as it breaths. Berghaus is a good mid range brand and I find them a good fit.
