Fulmer jacket, not pants

I have one of the Fulmer textile jackets, but not the pants.

It's very warm and reasonably priced.

Fit on my XL is roomy, not tight, I'm 6'3" and 195. No way to adjust the sides or arms, but that's OK for my use.

Construction seems OK, but a few loose threads after three weeks. Elbow, back, and shoulder pads are just dense foam, no rigid plastic.

In hindsight, I would have spent a little more to get a hi viz jacket, but the Fulmer was a reasonable option at the time.

I just bought pants and opted for Tour Master Caliber, which definitely seem to be higher quality than the Fulmer jacket. They just arrived yesterday, so no road test yet.

has anybody had any experience yet with these?

I was at a small local shop yesterday and they had a couple pair hanging there, and i was checking them out...They seemed pretty nice for price he had? I just don't know about actual waterproof-ness and comfort and durability?

Anyone else have any input?
