Try something like this as an alternative...

Gill Coast Sport Jacket Red/Graphite - Offer price 99.95 - Force 4 Chandlery
Yep but its 100 quid!

Compared to Decathlon's 35 !

AND Decalthlons states its breathability index!

What does everyone wear when SIBING?
I wear the breathable Peak storm pants, with built in socks;


With a pair of Palm neoprene boots;



And a Typhoon Jacket - Amur Hooded Smock;



I got the Jacket rather than a Cag because of the hood.

with trousers, jumper and socks underneath.


About 200 all in, which is equal to a decent Wetsuit or a cheap Drysuit.

If you'll fit in a small or medium, it's a very good price.

I like the hooded cag

I got a pair of these salopettes from Decathlon last year and paid a tenner more than now advertised very comfortable and hard wearing and does exactly what it says on the tin come with a 2 year guarantee as well

I keep a couple of Tyvek suits onboard incase we ever run into ugly, wet, windy conditions. They are super cheap, waterproof, and pack small. May not be for you, but it is a thought...

Otherwise I just wear a drysuit and stay toasty warm.

I also have one of those Decathlon jobbies. Wear it over a wetsuit on dull breezy summer days, waterproof/ breathable, cheap and a couple of useful pockets, what's not to like.
Resort to a drysuit when really cold though.
