Just got back from ALDI with a new bib and brace £24-99. They have a few items of clothing and a good tackle bag for £12-99. No tackle just clothing and flasks at good prices.

Got myself a pair of lined joggers and hoodie with neck warmer for £12.99 each felt warm when I tried them on and loose, should be good sitting on the box and a bag for £12.99 good size bag with 3 outside pockets very pleased, the boot look good but was quite heavy, they also had the bib and brace & coat which I bought 2 winters ago I recommend them still has good as when I got them.

Had a bib and brace from them a few years ago and it is still going strong and gets used most weeks at least once

I don't know whether they've improved the boots for this year but there were at least 6 cases of them splitting round our way last year.
I bought a pair of the neoprene fingerless gloves last year and have never used them until today. I lifted my carryall onto my octbox footplate as I was unloading the van and the rubber palm grip ripped straight off. I kept them on and fished a while in them and they would have been very comfy if they had straight neoprene palms. Once the rubber dropped off it was just a fine netting underneath similar to women's tights.

Mate bought some for his mrs to walk the dogs in, he was well miffed when they started cracking and falling apart..... blamed me because i recommended some neos to him for fishing.... then he tells me they'd never been wet because she didn't walk the dogs if it was wet and they spent most of their time sat in the conservatory..trying to make him understand that UV and neoprene aren't a good mix was difficult but not as difficult as getting him to understand that warming them up with the hairdryer before using them was a quick way to kill neoprene (heat and neoprene is another no no) sheeesh

My Aldi wellies are two years old - was wearing them yesterday - feet as warm as toast all day(y)
Bib and Brace hasn't ripped or dropped apart yet either and the fingerless gloves are also intact.

I got some of the wellies a couple of years back and they are still going strong. The bib and braces are also very good, too hot some days.
