I have a Warmbac oversuit for sale. The size is XL. It has been worn probably 6 times at most. I am selling as it is much too big for me and I want to buy an AV one.
It is listed on eBay at £70 but I am open to offers if anyone is interested.
Thanks.

Shame it's not 5XL as Meaty would have had it I'm sure.

Landjoff oversuits (available through Ebay) are pretty good too and less expensive than AVs. That black one of mine has stood up to a lot of grovelling around in the six years I've had it with nothing more than a seam gone at the back and a couple of nicks/holes. The only weak bit on them is the thread that holds the cuff velcro on, that tends to wear quicker than anything else.

I'm thinking about getting one of the reinforced versions to replace my current basic one, and move that over to being a digging suit and finally Laughbin the knackered Meander!

Oh God of Sarcasm, thanks for everything...

Cheers Adam. I'll have a look at them. I'll need to get something fairly soon. I remeber your suit seemed a lot more flexible than mine. IP: 2.220.5.142

I'm 6ft 3 and about 100kg. The warmbac XL made me look like a tellytubby. The sizing suggested I have an AV XXL, Tony at Starless suggested I try an XL and it fitted perfectly. Tony would do the same for you with a L and an XL. Return the less great one.

Mine fits very well and is worth the money, for sure. I've got a 48" chest and a 36" waist and a 30" leg. Since I've got a long neck, I'm possible more like a 6'1 person bodywise!

I'd strongly recommend an AV, because they are great and it's still going strong, having had total abuse. It looks smart and Tony is great.

There you go.

Tony is to caving kit what RF is to lamps.

Cheers for the advice. I have ordered one from Tony. Looking forward to receiving it.
