They are worth keeping an eye on at Decathlon, I have been into one of their stores and a lot is not displayed from website, always offers on some kit in stores and on line. Actually paid in store 9.99 for waterproof hooded jackets and similar for saloppettes

Ever bit of kit we have used has some down sides, but on costing alone this may decide on future purchases even of they don't last as long.

Looks a good option to a dry suit. Especially if worn over salopettes.

....and yes, would suit the boat RMS!!.
Same as but Decathlon uses Euro sizes which is smaller than UK sizes

I am similar and bought XL due to fact I will wear layers below jacket and being tall the sleeve length and body length are great

Tall and I don't go together in a sentence without a negative.

Had an XL musto jacket at first, drowned me and arms flapping everywhere. The body length too long too.

Sad thing is that they do not have any large sizes left at that price.

Not sure if it's any use to many of you but there is a designer village outlet near me that to my amazement has a musto shop . My wife has spent the last 25 years trying to get me to go shopping but since buying a rib I now will go there !

I don't know whether it's because it's in derbyshire but we seem to get some really good deals on what I guess are last years range . I bought a BR2 coat for 100.00 . I don't know how that stacks up with other places but they have most things half price , then have 20% off that on some days and we usually haggle another 20.00 voucher off .

I know it's not near most of you guys but worth a mention

Agree those outlets have been good in the passed, from. Bicester, Swindon and GLoucester , used them all for Musto, Helly stuff but recently their prices have been higher than some outlets on eBay.. If using them check in advance the retail price of say BR 1 or 2 and see what deal they will do

Checked ebay before buying and the outlet was quite a bit cheaper plus you get to try and know who you are getting them off .
