Well, Ive had this for six months now, so its time to write it a fair review.

Not a cheap bit of kit at over 100 notes but I was after a quality bit of kit which would last. I tried it on to find it very comfortable and quite light, ideal for summer rain I thought.
Anyway, it got its first soaking a few weeks ago and I got soaked to the skin. Not waterproof. Now the seam in the crotch of the bib n brace is splitting and not going to last much longer. I',m cotemplating contacting MAP to convey my dissapointment. What a waste of money.

I would imagine that your 1st course of action should be to return the suit to where you brought it from, to see if they can resolve this issue for you (as this is who your contract of sale is with).
If they cannot resolve things for you, then you should look to contact MAP.

Couldn't be bothered with the hassle of an hour and a half round trip to the shop where i bought it!

Myself and approx 7 or 8 other lads from our club all purchased the MAP suits and a few including myself bought the bib n brace. These suits are totally waterproof on a sunny dry day. Absolute rubbish when its wet !!!! Advertised as 100% waterproof...b****x

Never ever will I buy any MAP product, neither will any of the 30 lads in our club!
