Just an observation. Smocks are notoroius for overheating since you can`t ventilate them adequately. If you buy a smock now you`ll find it very oncomfortable to wear until the weather turns really cold.

Thanks for the reply’s been looking at reviews and most say smocks are too warm for general weather and not willing to pay £200 for 1.Think I may try a jacket been looking at percussion brand clothing looks ok and good price

Arktis mammoths are great for winter, and have side zips to ventilate ... but they’re very warm!!

I bought one of these in January and I bloody love it!! 

They have some good cammo patterns and they are pretty reasonably priced too.

I have a range of smocks for winter only, two tweed and two Ridgeline. Would not bother in summer just a lightweight inexpensive goretex. Look at Austrian army Goretex online hardwearing, totally waterproof and inexpensive.

I've never seen the point of a smock. At one time when the only fastening was buttons they probably had a place, but given modern fabrics and how efficient modern zips are I struggle to see  the advantage of having a garment that you can't actually open. All weather sailing jackets have zips...... : )
