Is a Primark One-sey the best bit of kit for £10??

Post by justin-g »

I just got a super sexy 1 piece fleece man grow in a fetching tiger print for a tenner - it's so warm and perfect for under my dry suit. Anybody else use these?? They seem custom made for the discerning paddler.

Awesome stuff - why would i spend 70 squid on an IR suit?

Does it come with a tail? I'm not interested otherwise.

i know loads of people with them, pretty much standard paddling wear now here! I've got a fetching camo one, although apparently even the x large is on the small side for a 6'5" bloke (funny that!). Only downside is the lack of pee zip! easy enough to create one though...

I have two - one cow and one giraffe/leopard/spotty thing. Great for fancy dress too, but I did have to cut a pee slit into them lol.

If your local Primark have sold out or you've not got a local Primark there are loads on Ebay! This one with a fetching picture of a reindeer is lovely, although could be a rip off at £10.99 plus £4 delivery pah. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/PRIMARK-LADIES-FL ... r_Design_2

Tiger suit seems all the rage but the S10 is just being kinky. Although it could come in handy for those days when you've left your wet kit in the car a week...

These are blatant rip offs from china !!!! How can you guys sleep at night knowing these where obviously made in a chinese sweat shop .

What about tibet !!
You should all take these suits, and burn them in the garden !!

You do realise that they will not be to the high standard of genuine tiger skin, don't you. The detailing will be all wrong and the material will be inferior, not to mention the R&D evolution.

Son, one day you will make a girl very happy for a short period of time. Then she'll leave you and be with new men who are ten times better than you could ever hope to be.

If only they did Otters and Herons - imagine the look on the faces of our bank side friends as two of the most hated creatures float by in kayaks/canoes in the fishing season.

My wife is rather concerned that there is a plethora of paddlers around the country with a fetish for animal man-grows.
Though she has now got an idea of what to get me for christmas. :-)

BeWise used to do ecellent fleecy jogging bottoms for £5. I used them for years for paddling and snowboarding, excellent stuff. In fact they were warmer than a £40+ branded pair I got years later.
