Brilliant find, Just what i was looking for got the standard "mera peak" for 102 minus the 30 discount code used to get it for 72 - the order has been accepted and should receive it on tuesday.

Just hope it fits me.

Incidentally the exact same jacket via lxdirect was 249 ?????

As per the forum rules the code I used was found via the discount codes forum. Just annoyed with myself that once again I forgot about quidco.

Cheers

Ali

Hi

Could someone give me a clue as to where the 30 discount code is please. I have looked in the Discount codes section but cannot find it.

Cheers Wills


Edit:Found it, thanks anyway.

Cheers xueta!

Still having some problems though. As I'm a first time customer it gives me the 15 off but won't except any other codes.

Anyone know a fix for this?

Cheers



P.S. The Mera Peak is an excelllent Jacket one of the best about.
The only real difference in the 2 is the fabric.
Normal 3 layer Goretex is about 90% breathable, XCR is 2 layer, about 95% breathable and a bit lighter.
You'd have to be doing some seriously sweaty activities to notice the difference.
Jackets like this make all the difference when you're in the middle of dartmoor on a wet n windy day!!

Hello everyone. Excellent price on these jackets.

I need a waterproof jacket for wearing over office clothing when I'm waiting for the bus, or generally out and about in the winter. Now I know that these jackets are WAY beyond anything that I require, but can anyone see a problem with buying a Mera Peak jacket for this? It looks like I should be able to get a ridiculously good jacket for 75 which should last me for a very long time. Are there any drawbacks with these jackets if you aren't going to be using them to trek across the moors? Any comments appreciated.

Thanks,
BlackCat.

I wondered about that too so I phoned them yesterday after I'd placed the order as the system hadnt asked me for any payment details and the lady I spoke to said that after the goods come and you decide you want to keep them they send an invoice which, if you want to pay it off in one go, you can either take it to your bank or phone them with your card details .

I ordered one from LXDirect but have had no Order Confirmation through. If I try and check my order status via my postcode and DOB, it bombs out and says Logon Failed.

Has anyone had an Order Confirmation from LXDirect?

I've ordered through littlewoods online yesterday and had not had an email confiration.. I phoned them this morning to check it, and they said it was being processed. As soon as they approve your account then you'll be able to see a delivery date online (tues for me as it stands).

The woman I spoke to said they had a bit of a backlog I think

I also ordered some other stuff from lx direct today, and haven't had an order confirmation, so I suspect it's nothing to worry about

Not knowing which size I need and what with the "mera peak XCR" and "trango XC" coming back in to stock this morning I now have 7 of these on order. One will be for me and one for my dad.

It seemed only wise there being only limited stock and the option for free delivery and free returns.

Super!

I wish they stocked XXL. I fear the XL won't fit me with a fleece on underneath.

The Trango is a looser fitting model if that's any help!

I assume returns aren't a probelm with LXDirect?
