This is a bit of a weird one, but I bought a midge jacket in the post-Christmas sales. I had been looking at the Beaton’s jacket, but I was alerted to one from Bush Wear, which was reduced to £4.95 (the Beaton’s jacket is £20). In fact the postage cost more than the jacket! It weighs 118g and is cut very generously, so it will fit over other clothing easily.
For such a cheap jacket, it’s very well made. The head opening is a zip at neck level, which might be preferable to the Beaton’s one. I really don’t know whether I will ever use it, but if I went to the Highlands in summer or to Scandinavia, it could prove to be a useful item. At a fiver, it seemed worth getting.
