i havent bought a floatation suit before but im getting right back into me shore fishing and unsure of what suit to buy.

can you give me any of your own preferences or suit you prefer any why.

if you have links for suits let me know, im ideally looking for a breathable one for around £80.

thanx

Try a search for Sundridge crossflow or En-tec on the auction site, if you are lucky you may find one for just over £80.

They are a good make............:thumbs:

I have just got a Sundridge Entec 2pc, it is light, comfortable and has plenty of room to move in it. Cant wait for those cold wet days/nights to try it out?:unsure:
I was told that they are going up in price by as much as £40, so if you are going to get one Grab it now?
Paid £120 for suit, RT thermal wellies and Shimano tribal gloves all from Mainwarings.
Good luck

the crossflow is breathable. Imax ones dont have a very good reputation, binned mine after a few sessions when it started to fall apart, too heavy and usually drier outside than in.

Well I've got a Fladen one pice and it is great in the winter and reasonably priced too.
I would say to go for the two piece though.

I got a Fladen one from everyone's favourite auction site for peanuts. It's a Fladen so it's pretty well made. It's a two-piece and was ISO standard and all that jazz. It was a former year's model or something - still brand new - but I think it was about £60 if I remember.

It's a little bulky when you're just walking around in the dry on the beach but I bet it feels a WHOLE load better when you're floating around in the freezing cold sea.

Fingers crossed I don't ever get to know what it's like though.....

I think it must be ok though 'cause a lot of the guys on Trawlermen (TV show) wear them and they fish in seriously cold water.

i can get a sundridge sas mk5 2 piece 2008 brand new for £50 but its not breathable and the crossflows a bit over priced, so how hard wearing is the fladen and does anybody have links to any of these suits, preferably breathable

thanx
