Go to a good yacht chandlers like Marine Super Store, they have excellent quality and very waterproof B&B, I have a Musto and it is tough enough to last for ever. They have some nice touches like a built in knife pocket. There are different ranges from lightweright to heavy duty offshore. If you don't care about comfort and only want tough and waterproof, try a commercial fishermen suppliers like South West Nets. I bought a cheaper set before and a tope bit right through the knees, best to keep their chompers out of the way

Hello Jamie,high octane/calcutta do some heavy duty unlined waterproofs too.Mustad 4 season are good for the money but lined and i think would be to hot for summer.

All the best

You want to get a GUY COTTON BIB + BRACE They are the best commercial waterproofs - i have tried several brands over the years and have never found anything better.
I agree 100%, Guy Cotten are the business, you can find them on Ebay now and then and definately worth the £50 or so.

I think Gaelforce Marine do them, or a similar commercial quality bib and brace...

Note the spelling of 'Cotten' if you are searching too!

If you want my advice , do not buy a Mustad id and Brace. I would buy a commercial fisherman's oil skins, they are hard core also one other quality make is Imax.

Just got back from a shore session with Paid4, who asked what weather I was dressed for when we met, we had a 4hr session, 3hrs of which were in the rain, & I find out that my Musto "Dry Suit" isn't!:nonono:
It retailed new at over £280, & I had wet thermals under both arms, & on both thighs!:nonono:
Perhaps the water molecules that splash on you when you are yachting, are larger than the ones that fall out of the sky! Musto my arse!:g:

If I bought a brand like a Musto that did that, I would take it straight back. I don't know if you have ever done any serious yachting but the water you often get doused in comes in much bigger lumps than raindrops. Seriously, if it is a new suit, is it internal condensation, or leaks? If leaks, take it back. If it is an old suit, the pores are probaly clogged and wicking the misture in, and the suit needs cleaning. Anglers get their clothes a lot dirtier than yotties and breathable waterproofs have to be clean to work properly.

At my age "internal condensation" (sweat) doesn't enter into the equation, I stand & "admire the view" long before any sweat appears, or another heart attack looms.:nonono:
I was sat down on the rocks & apart from a few casts & strikes never moved much, I take in what you say about big lumps of spray, & it might want a clean because, there may be significant more dirt on it than your average "What Ho's"!
Doubtless the cleaning will be a process carried out only by specialist marine clothing cleaners, & cost the equivalent of a full service on my Discovery?:g:

Not even close. Go to Millets or similar camping store, and buy a bottle of cleaning stuff for waterproof gear (explain to them, they will understand). You put half the bottle in the washing machine with your smelly gear and job done. Probably cost you £3 per wash.

No reason why not. The cleaning stuff is designed to clear the pores of breathable waterproof fabrics. If the pores are clear, air can get through but the surface tension of a water droplet prevents it. If the pores are clogged, the water droplet breaks and the water molecules can creep in through the dirt (or something like that). In the same shop you can buy re-proofing stuff that you wash in, in the same way.

Thats why I can no longer walk on water, I need to wash my feet more often, so the surface tension can support me!:yeah:
