If you can check out something like this;

BRITISH ARMY IMMERSION SUIT LARGE - YELLOW AND BLACK WATERPROOF SUIT - GRADE 1 | eBay

They are usually the breathable Typhoon type with reinforced seat and knees. 85 is almost a comedy price compared to new, they are tough and well designed. Bought one 2 years ago and have not regretted it, my "used" model was still in its bag with braces still in elastic bands - so brand new in effect.

For the money I'd be tempted to buy a spare. My latex socks have gone so might get boots put on, I use Typhoon rock boots at the moment, they can be a bit chilly in the cold if your boots are getting wet all day long.

Catheters? Spanner more like! Not going near any nuts of mine.



How's about an advisory visit to the john beforehand for all and sundry to avoid any tool work eh?
