Red and black warmbac
« on: January 28, 2019, 03:27:03 pm »
Doea anyone know where I can get hold of the red and black warmbac oversuit? I bought a red and blue one but find it too stiff and small to wear over a wetsuit.

Or can anyone recommend a good alternative for wet caving? Thanks!

Some people who cave in wet-suits don't bother with over-suits. Not my preference just letting you know that's something you could try, though if it's sharp rocks you won't have a wetsuit for that long.
Anything I say is represents my own opinion and not that of a any club/organisation that I am a member of (unless its good of course)

Yes I have caved in just a wetsuit but at this time of year it gets very cold. Especially when you're waiting in a queue in Swildons! Also need an oversuit for Upper Flood due to the amount of crawling!

You should meet up with Starless river when you are both on mendip and try some of the other suits he stocks.

I have been trying to but never have enough time. I may pop over to Caveclimb this weekend

Inglesport had them in stock a few months back. I have one but haven’t tried it over a wetsuit yet.  I have used The Warmbac centre suit over a wetsuit and it works really well, the bottom is the heavy cordura and the top is nylon so is more flexible, Starless river have it in for £78 so it’s also cheaper which is a bonus.
