Canoeing & Portwest

Two weeks ago I was back on the Kerry rivers, doing some work for an invasive survey of our waterways. The Brown Flesk was high and brown, with nice flow after several days rain.

Weather was wet and cool - a real Irish summer day! I was in the Portwest Erris Softshell Jacket plus the Portwest Salzburg Salopettes and delighted with both sets of gear. Warm, breathable and really nicely waterproof.

Especially impressed with the Salzburg Salopettes - I have been using them a bit recently for canoeing and kayaking work - they seem to be well beyond their advertised level of waterproofness which is awesome!

High point of this day was following a kingsfisher downstream and seeing it's waterside perch, covered in droppings.
