Looking through my blog to see if there any embarrassing rants that need removing I came across this thread from just over two years ago.
I am still wearing this jacket most of the time. It is still waterproof. Over the years the colour has faded from black to a peculiar browny red tinge, but not all over.
Although I have a mesh jacket for summer and last year I bought a Steve McQueen jacket for summer wear. The FT Aqua is still the go-to jacket.
