Warmbac suits

Wish we had somewhere local to try on suits!
When I was buying an AV oversuit from Starless River a couple of years ago, I paid for one suit, yet Tony mailed out two different sizes for me to try on. That's pretty amazing customer service by any standards!

In case it's useful info for anyone else the medium plus is definitely too long if you are 5ft 7, compared to my previous suit significantly longer. Luckily my partner needed a new one so could have it instead. Wish we had somewhere local to try on suits!
Tony Seddon from Starless River is on Mendip this coming weekend 22nd & 23rd June. He will be based at the Wessex.

I once asked Starless River Tony to order a specific harness he doesn't sell. 3 weeks later it arrived at my door at no price inflation and it's not as good as what he does sell.

Looking at the Starless river site they don't sell the standard warmbac, only the centre suit..
This would give you an idea on sizing. I always buy Warmbac oversuits at least one size bigger than needed to allow for a bit of shrinkage. Speak to Tony and he would be able to get you a standard Warmbac suit if this is what you want.

I am 5'7" tall and have retired my large Warmbac, the leg length is fine but it is too tight across the shoulders to get on. On it's last use I need help getting it on and 2 people to help extricate myself after the trip.
