Friday Schwag Grab: Howies Slate River Jacket worth £130!

Blag yourself a posh waterproof for nowt!

We've just had a couple of FX bikes in to test from Trek, and the lovely Jez who dropped them off (in exchange for Tiffin and coffee) also came up with a top bit of schwag for us to give away: a Howies Slate River waterproof jacket worth £130! And all you have to do is post to be in the hat.

Not only a posh jacket but a famous one: it's been featured on the Howies Blog, modelled by the big man himself. No choice of sizes I'm afraid, we've only got one and it's a large. It's in royal blue with Bontrager and Gary Fisher embroidered logos on the front and sleeve – it did come from Trek, after all...

Same rules as ever: just post a comment on this story saying you want it and you're in the draw. We'll pull a name from a receptacle next Friday, round about 3pm. The judges' decision etc. No cash prize will be yadda yadda.

i'm usually an extra large in girth, but this great looking jacket will inspire me to put some miles in to slim down to a large in order to fit into it.

Im in. I've always been 'in'. When I was a kid I wore cardigans now they are 'in'. At the time people called me a twat. No one is listening now. So now blue jackets are 'in' but nobody knows it yet. So it's obvious that I wear it first then it will be 'in'. This might take 25 years but it will be such a great 'in'. Trust me guys.

you're setting a bit of a precedent for the ol' schwag... will we see flash kit every week now, or is it back to mugs, postcards and t-shirts after this?
