UKCARP MAGAZINE 59 SEPTEMBER 6TH 2011ON TEST 2011A smart jacket in its own right, this fleece is all part of the package.The hood is adjustable and insulated and has a peak to maintain its shape.The trousers are very easy to take off or put on over your boots.The fleece can be zipped out on milder days when you still need a waterproof.THIS SUIT is designed to deal with the ups and downs of the British weather, so it is able to cope with wind, rain, frost and maybe even the odd bit of sun.The jacket and trouser combination comes with a zip-in fleece and is available in six sizes from S to XXXL. The outer shell is made from Climatex 3000, a breathable and waterproof material that gives protection to 3000mm and has a breathability rating of 3000g/m2. For insulation the suit utilises Thermatex 500, which allows you to be active and for the suit to wick away moisture, then provide warmth for long periods of inactivity.The jacket also has an adjustable insulated hood, two cargo-type pockets and two handwarmer pockets, finished off with two zipped security pockets. For added comfort the fleece can be removed and worn on its own, or to make the main jacket slightly cooler if the extra insulation isn't needed.The trousers have been well tailored with articulated knees and waist adjustment for a very good fit. They also come with braces that help support the weight of the trousers with their generous insulation, and keep the garment comfortable. To make the trousers very user-friendly, you also get zipped pockets, zipped fly and ankle gussets to assist taking them off or putting them on.The suit is good value for money and will provide excellent protection, so if your bankside clothing is looking a bit tired I'd take a look at this package from Chub.
