            In that price range it would be difficult to beat Protak.

              Preston Dri fish winter suit gets my vote. I bought mine last winter and its seriously toasty i often just wear the bib and brace with my windstopper fleece as its so warm i rarely need to wear the jacket. No need for long johns etc with this suit.
              I wore it saturday in that 'rain' and remained totally dry so the waterproofing definatley works!

                  Or just google up 'Army Surplus'.

                  Most of the bigger suppliers do mail order, and they're not bad on camping gear as well.

                  If you're near Wells in Somerset, there's a damn good (and cheap) stall there, too.

                    I agree with LuckyPiker. I was at the same match and i was wearing the Preston 1000 Jacket and Bib n brace. The rain was torrential. After the match when i took the jacket/bib n brace off I was totally dry underneath.

                    Might cost more than standard gear but it is far better and more importantly will keep you dry and warm + it is extremley lightweight.

                    NB: LuckyPiker: If I find your top 3 at Haverholme tomorrow its yours for £50. lol.

                      Some great advice there. The Preston stuff had already caught my eye. Does anybody else have comments on the Preston gear. I think I will be asking Santa to chuck some down the Chimley (thats what we call it in Liverpool).

                        iv'e just bought the drennan drenchwear jacket and bib and brace, cost me £45 off ebay, the jacket has a fleece like material inside so its like wearing a jacket over a fleece, ever since i bought the suit its rained everytime iv'e been so it seems to be a bit of a jinx, but i sat in the pooring rain for 5 hours the other day and when i took my jacket and trousers off i was bone dry underneath and at the same time it's very warm and comfortable while im fishing. for £45 for the suit i dont think it can be beaten, absolute quality as per usual from drennan. why pay £450 for a daiwa suit when you can pay £45 for something just as good in my opinion. and a drennan matchpro fleece is only about £30 aswell top qaulity.

                          I have a lot of time for Drennan. Along with the sponsorship of the England Team they have a brilliant customer service as well. To put a finer point on it a few years ago my son won Young Angler of The Month on Keith Arthurs Tight Lines.
                          Unfortuately he had the float rod stolen by some youths on the bank. I contact Keith to find out where I could get a replacement. Peter Drennan gave him a 13ft float rod absolutely free. That my friends is good service, going in this case beyond the call.
                          My question now is why is it so cheap? Does anybody else have the Drennan Drenchwear jacket and bib that David avfc talks about. How does it compare to the Preston Celcius and 500?
                          Thanks David for your input, as you pointed out why pay the earth when sometimes good companies are offering equally good gear at very affordable prices.
                          I would just like to compare them now.

                            I have had most of the suits you mention.
                            The Drennan Drenchwear was rubbish lasted about 3 months then leaked.
                            Preston Drifish 50 was better lasted 12 months then the bib n brace split jacket was OK.
                            I have a Protak TR lined Pole Jacket and Bib n Brace which is very warm but quite bulky now for sale as i have just splashed out on some goretex gear which is awesome lightweight and totally windproof/waterproof.
