Sorry to be boring but... If you want a set of 'sailing' water proofs then Henri Lloyd's products have been recommended on here before. You will probably be a few hundred quid for a decent outfit. If, however, you wanted to spend considerably less money then have a look at floatation suits commonly used by sea anglers. If you do go for a floatation suit I would recommend that you get a breathable one. either way, you are best to find a shop and go try them on before you buy. Some of the floatation suits can be a bit bulkier than your normal stuff.

Sadly I can't think of any make of sailing waterproofs or floatation suits that will allow you to look all black and slinky...

Anyone tried Seal Skinz? Looking at getting some good Water Proof gloves from there, wondered if anyone had any opinions?

Hi, if it helps I use the following:

Musto MPX jacket and trousers
Musto Goretex boots
Musto Socks
Seal Skinz gloves
HH base layer

All the above are great and as I live near an outlet village here in swindon I got most of the above for half price or less

To protect my head/face and to keep warm I sometimes use a Gecko helmet that came from ebay about half price too.

If you are going to own a rib I think you need to use it all year round as some of the best ribbing to be had is in the winter
