Got some camping shop near City Hall (in Capitol building), very good selection and knowledgable sales person, but I think they are quite exp. also got some in Peninsula plaza or ChinaPoint. Dunno about their pricing though.

you can get them at either base camp (shaw towers at beach road), or adventure 21 at chinatown point.

Go-lite from base camp offers lightweight and reasonable jackets. Adventure 21 offers top quality jackets from mammut. be prepared to pay between 300-700 for one though...

There's one shop in peninsula plaza level 2, opposite Alex Photo selling outdoor equipment. They have some goretex jacket.

And there's another one in Adelphi, basement level.

Or if you don't mind local brand, you can go to the shop selling outdoor equipment near Queenstown. Their brand is Winner (or winning? can't really remember). they have a wide variety of jacket.

if you have friends going to CHina.. you can get a mammut /north face / marmot / mountain hardware / jackets/windblock fleeces/thermals/ for between 90 - 150 SGD.

If youre lucky you can also find lowepro bags.. for like half the price they are in Singapore.

A good place to shop is www.rei-outlet.com. They often have good deals on nice eq.. pantogonia or Arc'teryx even.

prices are better than Singapore.

If you have friends GOing to AUstralia or New zealand, you can also look into Katmandu. The prices are steep but they have regular sales where the prices can be slashed by as much as 50%.

http://www.kathmandu.com.au/

other places that sometimes have sales are :

http://mountainco-op.com/
and
www.moosejaw.com

but if you cant find the online e-coupons they are pricey.

Ebay is also a good place if you dont mind used or factory overruns.

These are all great palces ESPECIALLY now with VpostUsa.

check out http://www.camperscorner.com.sg/ They stock the best parkas.
campers corner stuff are much more expensive compared to what you get thru mail order from overseas.
There are 3 climbing/trekking shops in Peninsuala; i know two of them will sell goretex.

have fun for your trip.

Its close to impossible to get a Goretex jacket for below $200. The cheapest one I got was for almost $200 and this was a Hong Kong brand after a very steep discount. You can either get a Goretex alternative, there a few on the market, or like someone said, get a friend in China to buy for you.

really, as Soyuz said, in Singapore, close to impossible to get a GoreTex jacket for $200...
go for other alternatives; I settled on a Lafuma jacket (using their Climaway material) with $200.
