Cheers Shane. I was just reading that the zips are a bit crap but that could be just bad care. Would deffo need to try one on.

I have one, will hold up in a light drizzle but if its pouring down forget it, also im not convinced about it being a thermal suit because if its really really cold you can deffo feel a chill, I have a Sunridge SAS mk1 suit which is now about 8yrs old as a backup so more often i use that jacket as it is both warm and waterproof....

IMHO I'd keep away from the stuff designed for anglers it's usually cheap nasty stuff. Better going for a proper yachting clothing that's designed to be immersed in salt water for long periods.
Kstaff has always been the new black in my eyes anyway!!!!!!!

I just bought a Fisheagle 2Pc floatation suit, I used it twice at the weekend and was very happy with it, and after several thumbs up from fellow anglers in the club who have had them for years i am confident my 95 euro investment will last for years to come
