Wanted - caving suits and fleeces

Hello all,

It is well and truly agreed in our family now. Caving is an official family activity (thanks to my wayward brother taking us on now countless holiday trips and all three boys often asking when the next trip is). Myself and husband have purchased full kit for ourselves but whilst the kids are growing we are searching for secondhand kit for them. Boiler suits and wetsuits (plus the amazing wetsuit socks) have served them well so far but honestly they really need proper warmth and protection now with their level improving.

We are looking for any suit and fleeces in all sizes from any brands for anything from a 5 year old up to small adult (the oldest is 13 but these boys keep growing!). Hoping to collect as much as possible second hand.

Thought I’d pop this on and see if anyone has anything to be sold on.

Many thanks,
Jo

A picture of the littlest having just come out of Mistral in Yorkshire last week (and yes, the elephant had to come too. He is only 4 1/2)

My friend is selling a virtually new Warmbac cordura oversuit size "S" that his son has outgrown.
I will check what price he wants and can get some measurements tomorrow. Warmbac have a size chart on various suppliers web pages

Wet wellies have just closed down, don’t know if they’d have any kit they’d be looking at getting rid of. Might be worth commenting on the thread and asking 💪🏼

I've a wetsuit trousers and jacket combo which has an 11 on the label, certainly won't fit our 11 year old but 11" seems highly unlikely. It's old fashioned and not great for caving as it's jacket connection has huge studs been in the garage for a decade but you can have it for postage.

Hi there,
I have an old Warmbac wetsuit plus feet and kneepads I am looking to re-home.
No idea what these things sell for.
150cm from neck to ankles.
Size 42.
So may not be useful for you until boys are mid to late teens?

That is a sexy wetsuit, what thickness is it? Wondering if my cake loving ass would fit in this 🤔
