I am currently in country New Zealand which means winter clothings including jackets etc are not in season except for the big outdoor brands like Kathmandu and Macpac. I am arriving in London on the 16th Dec (in less than a weeks' time) and will be travelling in the UK through to the new year and then swinging past france, italy, spain, germany and greece until early to mid february.
I don't really want to spend heaps in getting winter jackets which i won't be using after my travel so i am reluctant to get the big brands. I am wondering whether I will be able to get cheaper ones in London, or should I just bring them from NZ?
Also, if it is anything, I am connecting in HongKong and may be able to pick up one on the way however I am just concerned the jackets wont be suitable for a snowy winter in the europe...
your advice is kindly appreciated.
