I have just seen a Daiwa Matchwinner 2 piece suit, reviews look favourable and the price is good £74. Does anyone have any experience of it?

Cheers fellas

I have one Dave. With the right gear underneath it’s toasty.
It kept me warm today, only thing I struggled with was cold hands .
Oh........and lack of fish ?

Hi Dave if I am not mistaken the suit is made by Sundridge for Daiwa and is a very good suit.

Kev
Think Daiwa own the Sundridge brand.

Use their reltex for coarse and sas for beach fishing.
Both very good

Get yourself some neoprene gloves, they keep your hands warm even when wet , mine have the forefinger and thumb tips missing.

I have already ordered from Angling Direct, advertised at £73.99 but £67 at the checkout, inc. postage.

My suit has just arrived:headbang: When I saw the box I was very dismayed, it was not much bigger than a shoe box and I assumed that the clothing would be very thin to fold up that small. However, the box was like a Tardis, how Angling Direct packed it I will never know.

It is, as suggested by a previous poster, made by Sundridge for Daiwa and the quality appears to be excellent, the waterproofness I will check when it rains. I ordered the XL and it fits perfectly other than being a little bit long on the legs, but it will be tucked into my new boots and so does not really matter. If anyone wants a size comparison I am 5' 11" ish and 15 stone

Is that the one with the Efgeeco badge on it? Looks toasty.
