The bib and brace is great and accomodate an "ample" belly.

The wellies on my first impressions, bought a year ago but only worn a few times, are comfy, warm but not for arctic conditions and waterproof,,,so far.

I have heard reports of them failing after quite a bit of use, mainly by people walking dogs in them, so that's over and beyond their purpose I suppose.

I'd buy them again!

Wellies are really comfortable, only had them for a year so can't comment on durability.

The bib and brace however I've had for a number of years.......excellent.

Another vote for the bib and brace great for the price also if they are selling them this time the thermal lined joggers are ideal for wearing underneath your salopettes lovely and warm. :thumbs:
Unfortunately the wellies i had only lasted a fortnight before the heel came away and split i was wearing them to walk my dog . :eek:

Bib and brace is brilliant for the money and likewise the joggers. If the socks are the same as the ones they sold a couple of years back then they are good as well . Will probably get more of the all the above to put away for later use and a pair of boots

If the bib and brace is the same as the one i bought the hidden pockets in the bib are right on the edge of the bib itself held together with velcro.
Didn't know mine had these pockets till last season.....they're hidden all right.

Do they throw in some cheap spinning gear and a couple of free plastic bags for your catch? :scratch:

Fingerless Gloves are great for a fiver, especially if you want to throw lures in winter like I do..

Yep, the rods and reels are all cheap plastic crap but the clothing is excellent value for money. If it had a different badge it would sell for double or treble the price in a fishing shop.

Pretty sure someone on here last year was saying the bib and brace and coats are the same as one of the fishing brands but forget which now.

I got the bib and brace, great stuff, but it’s exactly the same as Crane Sports ( I think it was called) found on eBay cheaper...
