B dri nylon rainsuit

We got this suit to wear when out with the cameras.
The one we got was xxl

Worn once and the zip came off it's track and would not go on again.
Light in weight and warm on wearing as it is not breathable material
I do not know if it is waterproof as yet as not tested for the purpose it was bought for.
It does appear small in size so care needs too be taken.
Has popper fastenings on both the arms and legs too tighten them.

Not bad apart from the broken zip.

I was actually looking at these since they are fairly inexpensive and I could do with something like this during the severe storms we get in the US where the rain can be so torrential, not to mention hurricanes/tropical storms.

Would you say its worth the price even though the zip sounds kinder dodgy?

Hello

It feels as though it would stand upto storms as it has the zip and a storm flap to protect the zip.
Be prepared to sweat whilst you wear it as it is not breathable material.

It has a hood that rolls into the collar which is not shown on the video.

Apart from the zip which is nylon/plastic it is ok.

Looks great, Looks similar to my old vintage Regatta Nylon Rainsuit. I wouldn't mind one of these, but as usual the GBP to USD + Shipping is a killer :roll: For me to purchase that suit, it would cost around $40 which is £26 so its nearly double the price.

I ended up ordering one, it should take about 3 weeks or so to arrive, I'll let you know what I think when it arrives.

What weight nylon are these? Are they similar to the regatta stormbreak cagoules or are they light weight like the peter storms?
Lets get swishy!

Hello
These suits I suppose are medium weight
Never having had either of those suits it is hard too say!
Sorry about that!
