Best bits: The top-to-bottom zip arrangement means you can get in or out of the suit in less than ten seconds and it fits over your normal clothes.
The fabric is more substantial than any other textile garment I’ve owned including premium brands like Rukka.
Worst bit: Since the bankers stole all the money the pound dollar exchange isn’t in our favour. This makes the Roadcrafter teeth suckingly expensive.
And water gets through the zip system eventually. Oh, and the fact that it’s mail order-only is a pain.
