    Sounds like you've got everything covered John and a good selection to take.

    Have fun in Iceland.

    Looks like it's going to be a heatwave. 8 deg on Monday

    That's a shame if it's going to be that warm but if it is I'd ditch the ANJ-4. You just won't be able to wear it and all it'll do is take up space and weight in your suitcase.

    I have only ever seen this jacket on Japanese blogs. It's quite old, I'd say more than 10 years, long before the obsession with grain began . They don't make them anymore but the pattern is identical to that used by RMNZ, the sheepskin coating is more brown rather than the slightly too black RMNZ used.
    If you like it then my advice would be to get aero to copy it. They are the ones who would / could do it.

    That really is a stunner John and looks to be the perfect fit.

    Did you eat hangikjöt whilst in Iceland? Very popular over the Christmas period.

    You need them here at the moment as there's an inch of rock-hard mirror ice on the footpaths and roads over the whole town.
