    I have too many holes and dabs of Antifouling and paint on my 35 year old jacket. Its still good very warm and original zip but a bit scruffy for an evening in the pub!

    I have just had a look at this:-

    Not quite the same! But I doubt I will need it to last another 35 years!

    I stumbled upon this Forum when I was researching Javelin Fleeces. I am not a member of the sailing fraternity, but I have the very last Javelin Fleece made in Britain. It is the standard fleece in Red size XXL. I purchased it on 19 March 1999 and I heve never worn it. The Javelin fleece was the original in my opinion and was also a British product. Again, in my opinion it is a style icon.

    As stated in a much earlier post, Helly Hansen fleeces were about several years before Javelins were.
    Hellys were however much more expensive as I recall and less hard wearing.

    I bought several Javlin jackets for friends, the main thing I remember about the jackets - I was a boy then - was the adverts featured an attractive lady wearing one and little else !

    Okay, the original / inaugural decent fleece, worn by the majority.

    You bought expensive Javelin jackets for friends, when still a boy?
    How much pocket money were you getting?

    I had a brand new one nicked from a peg in the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club one Friday night after racing. Lovely it was - bright red! I reckon it was the crew off a French boat on a mooring just off the club. Typical French trick! Now I live in the South of France and don't need a Javlin jacket but I'm just biding my time till I can get my revenge so be careful where you hang up your jackets in the SoF, I might be in the same bar! …
