well said!!

If a light liesure user, fairish weather user ie not out at all times and generally head when it isnt a blooming storm. A decent waterproof sailing jacket with a nice high collar and framed hood will stand you well for years. I paid 140 fir a musto cruising jacket. The full on offshore ones ate and i dont think you need them unless you are sailing or out in horrible weather for hours on end regularly. Then a cheaper pair of waterproof trousers for when weather is v bad. I then got some second hand ski goggles from flea bay and shoved them in console for when you get caught out. Crew can bury their heads but skippers need to see!!

Thanks for the recommendations guys, really appreciate it

If I cant get a pair of the MPX trousers cheap what other warm waterproof trousers would you recommend?

Also the MPX Offshore jackets, how do you find the high collar? Could see that it might irritate when bouncing up and down?

I would suggest some nice Musto jackets, along with some decent thermal stuff underneath.

If you do fancy a Dry Suit, the Crewsaver ones are fairly decent. Been one of the best buys of mine over the last few years.

I actually find Decathlon brilliant for nice warm, practical clothes at prices far better than your average boating place

For MPX trousers try the musto outlet shops, i'm sure the trousers are about 97 and The MPX race jackets are around 130

Here's IanM's thread that explains a bit more:

I agree had my crewsaver for over 3yrs and it has never let me down.
