    celsius is spot on for winter as you'll be like toast, the 500 is good but the 1000 is alot better mate, i've got a 1000 bib an brace and cant fault it

      I've got the 500, warm as toast, but I think the 1000 will be even better.

        You can get both the celcius and the 500 for the price of the 1000 and then all your neeeds are covered.

            I have the Celsius bib n brace that i wear with shorts most of the time or the Preston thermals in winter and the 500 jacket which is great all year round but i wear a fleece under it when its really cold.

              the 1000 dont come cheap but what does.never been a fan of fishing suits seem to be bulky i use karrimor gortex jacket and bottoms with a diving thermal suit under it weather can do what it wants.the diving themals are designed to be used for hours under water at temps around 2c and as water disapates heat a lot faster sat on the bank is bliss

                  I can only comment on the celcius which the wife bought me last year! Very warm so much that you will only need a t-shirt underneath most of the time. The bib and brace have velcro and zip fastenings on the legs so you can pull them over footwear if need be. The jacket has plenty of pockets and is a good fit. Ive yet to test out how good the waterproofing is though...
                  I personally wouldnt bother with goretex kit as once its dirty you have to use pure soap flakes or a speicalised cleaning product for goretex clothing and in my experience they never come up properly clean or waterproofed.
