    100% anything but the Maver gear..

    Ive had a pair of the Maver B&B for 8 weeks and theyre totally funked..

    Cpmpletely ripped and shredded between the legs, and if you sit on the bank be very careful as a nettle causes a 2 inch rip...!!

    Ive just ordered a set of preston,, lets see what theyre like..

        Protak TR, 100% waterproof and breathable. I am about to replace my Preston gear with it as my Preston Dri-fish 500 leaks.

          Hi Dean,

          I'am the proud owner of the Preston 500 dri fish suite and I have the Preston celcius these suite are the best around mate, and you can buy both for the same price as the 1000, suite so you have a summer suite and a winter suite. I sat at Boldings in a gale force wind and rain and the 500 did not let any water in at all I was a dry as a bone at the end of a 6 hr match

          They really do get my vote every time top draw mate you wont be dissapointed.
          Regards Billy Boy :)

                    Thanks guys for your replys i was gonna buy the maver wetsuit cos i got all maver gear.

                        maver is W**K
                        Preston Is the Best In Price Range Yes Some Times They Leak But 4 like 150 - 200 odd good value for money
                        i have heard at least 7-10 people say there goretex has leaked and thats £500 hmm i know what i got

                          I got a goretex suit from EBAY .I payed less than 50 quid for it new. Ex RAF so its blue . From what i can see its the same stuff as used by the fishing companies! Well maybe the brand names have a little more around the knees and elbows hey but ive been using mine for a year now and never get wet.. One draw back i found is the RAF one doesnt have a hood!!
