Hello Fussy,

Pleased to hear again here in this message board. Generally, buying the waterproof jackets would better if you buy in your home town because you won't be able to get the actual quality of jackets here in Kathmandu and even in India the reason is most of the materials come from china.

So, would be worth buying there or if you need little less quality then still you can purchase in Kathmandu as well.
cheers

hi nepaladv

thanks for helping out again. Clothes in this country also come from china.

I just want the peace of mind to buy a waterproof jacket that is waterproof!
