Dry trousers

Is there anyone out there that makes Dry trousers with intergrated socks?

I'm fed up strugging into and out of my dry suit and want a two piecer.

I've asked in a couple of Chandlerys and none of the big manufacturers seem to sell them.

Ravenspring !

Ask them to put a pair of boots on instead of the socks. Although they don't advertise it they will do it.

At the moment I'm using a neoprene set of waders. Very warm and seem to be tough. Only cost £44 including next day delivery. They seem a lot better at lasting than the crappy nylon waders I bought for £30, which lasted all of two goes over a year period. Don't look very boaty though.


I've promised myself a set of Ravenspring trousers for the New Year though.

They'll even do a RIBNET logo if you can get the rights to it from JK.

A possible cheap option if you've got a spare drysuit. Would be to cut the drysuit down and sow the seems.

Andy,

Heres a link to the waders I can recomend.

http://www.lathams-fishing.co.uk/pro...tegory/37.html

Plus points are they are sturdy and warm. And cheap !

Downside they are only available in green and the material is thick like a wetsuit.

PS. Order a larger boot size than you are used to. The wellies are quite a tight fit.

Nick.
