Best waterproofs

My Musto Offshore MPX waterproofs are delaminating and I need to replace them. They're going to get used 3-4 times every week as I run a charter (diving) RIB.

What do other commercial users use?

Safe RIBing

err...mainly Musto Offshore !

However, I do spend more time in the drysuit (Typhoon WOSS) which seems a lot harder wearing though.

How old are the Musties ?

We supply Baltic's hi-vis commercial 'Dock' jacket and trousers and have always had good reports, it is nice that they also include buoyancy (the jacket not the trousers ).

Musto have the so called "Musto Promise" that is basically a lifetime guarantee. Might be worth getting in touch with them and trying for a free replacement.

This may sound weird; but I have a set of Henri Loyds that I purchased 26 years ago. Agreed, they have not been used much, but they still work.

Musto MPX Oilies and a Musto Drysuit as well - everytime...!

Never had any problems with them ever... perhaps you got a rough set...it happens occasionally...

My Musto's have been beasted over 5 seasons now and still are as good as new. I also Foredeck on a racing yacht in the Solent so they get quite battered but I've never had any problems with them...
