Direct from Gecko on line unless you can wait until Southampton Boat Show as they always have a stand there.

In fact, I don't think you can buy them anywhere else.

They do come up on ebay sometimes, or even on here.
Ours are a mix of White Ex-RNLI ones for my boys purchased of ebay and refurbised by me, plus Black Ex-special forces ones for me and Mrs Nasher, which were purchased from an army surplus stall at a show and again refurbished by me.

We have supplied them to a great many Ribnetters and other customers, sometimes standard and sometimes with customisation. We do not currently have them on our web shop as we do not have any in stock since our re-shuffle at the start of the year.

Sorry, can't resist posing this again.

With a bit of effort old Geckos can be refurbished quite easily, we use these with 'long' visors rather than the shorter ones as they protect the whole face.

Thanks for ours

I have got very, very used to mine now. I wear it almost constantly on the boat, even on the nicest of days when in shorts + tee I find it very good to wear. Needs a small bit of velcro replaced but apart from that both are great. On the back of Martin's advice, we went for 15% tint half-face. The tint is brill, just takes the edge off when the sun is reflecting off the sea, but at dusk it is still perfectly usable.

Would advise full-face though, we are looking to move to a pair, but Martin reckons we should go direct but I'm so bone idle I haven't gotten round to it in 3 months.....

Gratuitous vid containing GD in his navy Geck'. Mine is light blue

Just checked out the embedded link - should be fine, what might be the issue? On a side note, I have noticed that many pages and links of the site seem to be broken. Chrome comes up with a "reload" button and that seems to sort things out but not always. Many things seem to now have different codes in the URL - or is it just me?
