The publication date for issue 289 is the 10th of December, meaning subscribers should receive their copies during the week leading up to that date. It is also available from caving suppliers such as Inglesport and Starless River, or from our new website
I wondered that!
One of your fellow cavers mentioned that old neoprene isn't as flexible and therefore comfy as the new stuff, so I priced accordingly.
But then, I'm guessing cavers from Derby are as lean as whippets (a southerner stereotyping!) so whoever ends up using the wetsuit will probably be rattling around inside it anyway!
Anyroads, buyers seemed to just be attracted to the pretty colours so it'd be interesting to see group photos with one caver in aquamarine, yellow and red, surrounded by cavers in black...
