I used to be on the round side, and found that it was a lot easier to find garb that fitted on american Ebay. Or have a look at good quality workwear. The quality will probably be better, and the price will certianly be lower, than most stuff marketed by tackle manufacturers.

My original Preston dry fish lasted years but. this newer one doesn’t seem to be as well made. The missus has stitched it up twice already. I’d give this latest one a 6.5 / 10.

I'll second that Mick, my first one was very good. This one, (DF30) has gone already, I was soaked right through after fishing all day in it.

I have an original dri-fish Celsius suit that I bought off @lambrettasx200 and it's still going strong. Fully waterproof and warm. My only gripe is that it's very stiff when it's brass monkey weather.

I advised a larger club member to look at ski salopettes and jacket. He got the size he was after and saved himself some cash. One happy warm angler
