Lonsdale and Karrimor in Zurich?

Hey guys, I am new in this area.

Maybe any shop with Lonsdale or Karrimor brand in Zurich or arround it?
I need to buy a light waterproof jacket and I saw a few of them of those brands online so I'd like to try it first before buying it.

Any other advice for brand for jacket would be great. I'm just looking for simple waterproof jacket, nothing so expensive..

Thanks a lot!

Just bought a load of that type of stuff at Sports Direct... in the UK of course. I've never seen anything like that in CH.. they seem way more concerned about spending lots on something with the right logo (maybe try the 'sports' department in one of the big Migros). There are discount sports gear shops in France like Sports Direct.. but it may not be worth the hike from where you are.

Karrimor used to be great (lifetime guarantees on rucksacs etc) but now basically rubbish from China with a Karrimor logo on it.
This happened when Sports Direct bought it out.

But if you want something cheap and cheerful then it will do the job.

Just like I said, if I get any other advice, I'll go and check it.
Because, I'm not familiar with many brands up here in Swiss, I'm newbie here

You can try SportFabrik, which is in Regensdorf, ZH. If you are lucky you can find some stuff with up to 70% off the RRP (recommended retail price). They have a wide range of brands from NorthFace to Mammut, to McKinley.

Another shop which I say has some pretty cool stuff is Sherpa Outdoors.

And check Aldi/ Lidl, if you are looking for a basic jacket - they have some pretty decent ones.

But as ever, best time to have a great deal is when they do a sale.

Have fun shopping
