IR 7Figure Dry Cag - Blue, XL - £100

Perfectly good dry cag in great condition, for sale purely because my kit colour scheme has altered. It's a comfortable fit, has full latex seals, will keep you comfortable in a wide range of temperatures (I've used it on warm spring days, and in the freezing cold), and is a beautiful shade of blue....

Re: Dry Cag Selection?

My IR dry cag failed after very little use. Unfortunately I bought it from a certain North West outlet shortly before they closed down and so sorting it out became complicated and I didn't follow it through. They do have a UK based warehouse/service centre nowadays which I wasn't aware of when I ha...

Re: Dry Cag Selection?

The difference is usually just the neck seal, sometimes the wrist seals or the bicep seals on a shorty too - on a semi-dry they're made of neoprene instead of latex; it's more comfortable but less dry if you're in a powerful feature like a hole, doesn't make much difference when there isn't a lot of...

Re: Dry Cag Selection?

The Palm Kinetic was superb value for money in its day, even more so now I imagine as it'll be being sold off! The one I had was amazingly dry for a semi-dry cag and bombproof for a good couple of years, and I was a newbie then so swimming lots! Palm's customer service is also top notch. For modern ...

PeakUK Freeride Semi-Dry Cag Blue XL - £90

This is a great semi-dry cag with comfortable, adjustable neoprene neck and latex wrist gaskets with Velcro adjustable over cuffs. The material is lightweight but extremely durable and a double waist tunnel creates a very dry seal around your spray deck tunnel. The cag also looks pretty cool in a br...

Re: River Ribble - Clitheroe to Ribchester

Myself and two friends tried to paddle the river from Helwith Bridge today and a chap who claimed to be the Fisheries Baliff with a dubious EA ID card came up to us as we were getting changed and said he'd just come from a meeting with the local fishermen. He told us there was no public right of way...

Re: Angling Trust - More Saber rattling, or serious this tim

Regardless of what people think of the BCU, or any disappointment you've suffered from them in the past - now would be a REALLY good time to get behind them and help, rather than condemning them. They'll be the only people representing us and fighting our corner in court and we will need them to hav...

Level Six Emperor - Bright Red/Charcoal L £350

This is a brilliant, pretty substantial genuine Level Six drysuit that will put up with a lot of abuse. I'm selling as the sizing is just slightly off for me, it's rather generously sized and will suit anyone around 6 foot tall and up to about a 38" waist. This was purchased only a few months ago fr...

Hey all, I'm looking at selling my Burn so I can get something more suitable for bigger water. Love the boat but there's no way I can afford to keep it as well as get something else! She's been well looked after with no cracks, however there is a little bit of sagging on the hull, a very minor dent ...

Re: Big Dog DropZone or Dagger Mamba 8.6

I have had a look at the Raptor, but I'm not a fan of the foam outfitting and found it difficult to roll. I also feel like the plastic might be a little soft (despite the 4 year warranty). Thinking about it though I can see how the DropZone may be soft as well, although I've heard from the Big Dog g...
