April Clothing!

Hey,

As my current gear is getting a bit dated and getting a new boat etc wondered what gear people would recommend?
Picking up the new Rib at Easter and spending a week down there so have a feeling it will be a tad chilly and may be a bit wet (hope not)!

Recommendations lads!

Cheers
Jas

I've been using XM Offshore (T 5000 material) jacket and trousers (with braces) for the last 4 years. Can't fault it, and has kept me dry is some poor conditions.
