Best place in dublin 4 a winter jacket

Hi folks
Where's best place in dublin for a decent jacket.
I'm looking a proper warm rain proof textile for around the 250/300e mark.
I know most the shops are probably similar prices just wondering is there one shop better than the rest for price and range.
I normally buy most my gear online from uk/Europe just wont chance a jacket as I prefer to try it on..thanks..

Cotters in Ballymount have a reasonable range.

You may as well check Bikeworld while you are in that area.

Find out which jacket you want and then check real-world
prices on-line. Use that as a basis for haggling. I have found
local shops can often match or beat the on-line sellers,
particularly if you can wait for 'Thanksgiving' or New Year sales.

Cotters also get my recommendation as they're sound and have lots of kit in stock. The one time I had trouble with a pair of boots I bought from them they swapped them out with zero arguments.

mmmmmmm burritos. I decided recently that burritos are my favourite food. What's not to like, carbs, meat and veg in a tasty, easy to eat package.
