New one piece Winter slope suit arrived today.
 
DETAILS HERE

Should do the job perfectly.
Colours are nicely subdued, so I won't stand out like a sore thumb. Suit is about half the weight of my fishing floatie and is easier to move around in. Hood is detachable, which is handy.
It has a breast pocket and 2 hip pockets with hand warming slots. I'm 6'0" and 42" chest and the supplied XL size suit fits fine. Can't knock it atthe price - £29.99 & P&P.

That looks a good buy, personally I think a bright colour can be a good safety feature up on the slopes though.

It also attracts attention; I prefer to blend in as much as I can, particularly on some of our permissive sites.

One where I have negotiated with the land owner for permission to fly ie.flying is not generally available to all and sundry.
It pays to keep a low profile on some of these sites.

Slope tested the suit today for about 2 1/2 hours at Woolacombe.
Blowing 25 - 30mph NW.
Ambient 4.5c - wind chill would take that a fair bit lower.
Wearing a par of jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt underneath.
Came home as warm as when I left the house.
Easy to move around in and the 2 way zip is handy.
Can't fault it at the price.
Best £30 I've spent this year.
 

Click on the piccie - I ain't really that fat!

Seems that quite a number of people are buying them - they'll be sold out soon. LOL
 
PS. I must just add that I have no relationship with the company supplying these;, apart from being a satisfied customer.

Easily recognisable, a most unusual square black face.

I got a XXL and its a little tight TBH
I reckon L, or maximum XL would probably do you .... skinny little wretch
I hadent realised it was quilted quite so heavily, and it feels like its gonna need very little other clothing to keep you warm.

I think one of these looks handy for flat field flying too. I keep trying to get the motivation to go flying at the mo and the cold does put me off...
