I am thinking of buying a fishing two piece suit, jacket and Salopettes, and thinking of either a Preston DF25 or KORUM light weight anyone got either with some feedback? I don't do extreme winter fishing and as I am a short AR----s most winter suits I've tried make me like a Michelin man lol.

Just want something reasonably warm, wind and waterproof comfortable thanks..

I've got a Preston jacket and salopettes thingy. Very warm, very dry. I like it. It does make me look like one of those commercial carp catchers though.

I have one of those 'all-in-one' suits. Very well insulated, keeps the rain out, well worth the tenner I paid for it from the car boot sale.

Get one of these cannot fault it. You cannot beat the price £99 fully seamed, generous cut, reinforced areas, waterproof, well designed. Little if any condensation comfortable all day. Cannot se why anglers are not snapping this suit up. Had mine over a year now, no complaints .

MM. Morning, No not bulky at all. It is not lined in any way just like a heavier weight Gore Tex.. I have a XL, 5ft 10in, 40 chest, 34 waist. Not too big for rainy days not too tight for winter fleeces. Very happy with mine. Hope it suits you;)
