No good to me mate. It provides far too good a target for the shotgun toting Yorkshire farmers, when I'm 'testing' the lift available on some happened-across moorland lump on a Guerilla Sloping mission. ........

The very reason I bought this suit, in the first place, was that it was in subdued colours which don't draw attention when you are flying on some 'sensitive' slope sites.
Last thing I want is to stand out like a sore thumb.

What a bargain! Mine has arrived, 5'10"=XL, and am just going to try it out if the wind co-operates.

This suit is as warm as toast, no drafts allowed in, wore it in the car to drive both ways and its waterproof as I found out when the clouds came down to envelope the slope.

I got a similar thing from Lidl, a pair of quilted winter overalls £16.99. No hood to these but Santa had already brought me a couple of fur lined trapper style hats. Been as warm as toast flying all tho' the winter.

Seems to have become the club uniform as more and more appeared at the field. wink 2

Only snag is like all their bargains, you have to wait for them to come round again. I snapped up a second pair the next time they appeared.

Now that I've started sloping they'll get even more use. yes

Hi All

Anyone know where a good slope suit could be bought now? Looked at various suggetions from last winter, but no bargains available as yet for this season. The first post looked ideal, but cannot find it anywhere. Thanks. yes

Just for info, those original suits unfortunately became very rare, very quickly after that listing.

I did manage to get one and based on the fact that I've comfortably worn single, thin layers underneath all day in sub zero's at Horcum, I would recommend looking for a similar fishing suit. It's a huge and aggressive market, so prices are damn keen - especially for outgoing, last year's items.
