Sounds like very interesting research; have the findings been published anywhere?

They are also quite bulky so I walk around a bit like the Michelin man on shore, but not bad when stood helming on the boat. Even in rough & wet conditions the combination didn't let in a drop of water.

Fladen floatation suits - we have gill os2 jackets but need some waterproof leggings to go with them. I have seen the floatation suits at quite a reasonable price, are they suitable for ribbing?
Remember that it is very dangerous to wear floatation trousers without the floating jacket, or a decent lifejacket. If you fall in you don't want your bottom-half floating above your top half

FWIW I paid about 90 for mine.

Very interesting indeed. I take my hat off to the guys and gals who undertake this type of scientific research work.

Luckily, when I was about eleven, my teachers and I agreed that an 'academic' career wasn't for me....

These are excellent and do not steam up. You can get them cheaper than this on ebay if you look around.

I like the look of these - not tried them but might see if they have one in next time I go to Reading - PRO LAND PHOTOCHROMIC GOGGLES WED'ZE - Ski Goggles Ski and Snowboard - On sale...


They have various other goggles in the sale too.
