Fladen Flotation Suit 845 XY - XXL - 174.75

I purchased a Fladen flotation suit to replace my old oil skins when boating. Unfortunately in the UK you can only get the blue and yellow ones, and I wanted a black one - you can only get these in Europe for some reason.

So I ordered a 845 XY - but they have sent the wrong one, so before I go through the hassle of sending it back - I thought I would see if anyone wanted it for what I paid - so I could then re-order the correct one.

I can only keep this open a few days as if no one wants it I need to return it.

Here is the spec;

One of the lightest flotation suits on the market. This is a very affordable one piece flotation suit that does not compromise safety.

The bouyancy requirements set by EN393 regs state that a suit of size XL must have a bouyancy of at least 50 newtons. The fladen suit has a bouyancy of 85 newtons, which means it exceeds the 'basic' standards by a considerable margin, making it safer than other competing products. This product, is also one of the few suits in the UK meeting ISO15027-1 which basically means it is an approved and tested immersion suit (i.e. will protect you from the cold of the water, as opposed to just keeping you afloat).

Immersion suit standards ISO 15027-1 compliant
Flotation garment EN393 compliant
Solas/UCG reflectors (400cm/sq)
Seals against water entry legs, sleeves and thighs
Neoprene inner-cuffs
CE 394 Approved Whistle
Insulated Hood and Collar
7 Pockets (2 fleece lined)
Hi Vis Fluorescent Colour
Double stitched water-tigth seams

Total weight - approx. 2.2kg - This is very light for a one piece suit!!
