I mix and match

I use a Weazel suit (remember I scuba too) and I have 5 Seasons combat kit on top (real ex army stuff from an ex army shop)

I have to make sure I stay warm to stay mobile with my Spinal injury
but
When doing so you don't want to get so hot that you sweat
because in long sessions that can get really uncomfortable and if you get too wet you will find you will start getting cold again

AHHHH but the blurb I read only says -5 and of course I'm a skinflint
My 5 seasons combats cost me 15 and are as warm and they are camouflage too

the coldest thing on my is my feet as usual 'cos I can't do anything with them irrespective of moon boots, snow boots or whatever I wear

I think foot warmth maybe start on another thread ?.. hmmm 5 season, but have you spent a full day in the winter in them and not got cold ?.... going from a mate on another forum, this sasquash jacket (that he has) is designed (he tells me) for non movement warmth, not roving about, so any walking and such its bound to be warmer than the normal jackets....and i'm sure others do like for likes...has anybody got any Nash Zero stuff that looks warm, see some jackets in Angling Direct Norwich the other week about the same price if i remember right...

The Saquash is a good jacket (the SAS use them) the combats I use are tagged 5 seasons which means Artic wear even though they are green/brown camo and yes I've stood in the river Derwent for hours in winter and sat for hours on hte bank too
the best laugh I have is the snood type hood with it you can pull the wire rim into what ever shape you need and still breath easily


As for me feet that is nothing that can be done by any shoemaker except maybe buying some electrically heated socks it's a problem since having my spine worked on surgically
