A bit expensive but I use a Henri lloyd outfit, the jacket abit bigger than I need so that I can put a decent fleece on underneath if it gets cold, works very well and keeps me dry, im sure there are cheaper alternatives but it works well for me. In rain I use a pair of sailing goggles which work great. I would recomend checking out any end of season bargains at the yachty shops. Of course a woolly hat is also a must. If only I could find a waterproof woolly hat I would be comepletely dry. I also invested in a pair of decent marine boots which are great.

wet Weather Gear

It's got to be Musto!! Lots of different kit for different conditions. Fully support the lots of light layers. Helly Hanson, Ron Hill tracksters, etc. Hands, feet and head are most important. I've not yet found the right gloves, but content with the rest. Any recommendations re gloves mainly for helming the RIB? Thanks.

This is almost as good as the traditional 'cutting a hole' thread!

Musto jacket with nice high collar

Beghaus neck liner and fleece under if proper cold

berghaus waterproof over trousers and water proof north face x running shoes. (always hated the thought of going in with wellies on)

Seal skinz waterproof gloves, functional yet waterproof and warm, magic.

Smith ski goggles For when the rain kicks in or wind is biting.

Though just wear shorts and t shirt in the pub when the boat doesn't work!

My OH wears a full polar fleece woolly bear suit under her wet weather gear. On the trip back from Alderney, she actually got a little warm. It was a first.
