Does anyone know much about these? I am entering Tough Guy an extreme endurance event in January. This involves running in freezing waters (-10 outside) and interminably going in and out of water.

Would this be suitable? Or am I thinking wet suits!?


Be no good for Tough Guy unless you plan on wearing a completely sealed waterproof layer over the top mate. Baselayers are brillant at regulating your body temperature, but only if you keep them dry (when it says 'Lifa Dry' it means it wicks away sweat, it isn't waterproof).

When I did it I was completely saturated by the end of the first field (and ditch), luckily wasn't wearing much. If you're cold, run faster! Good luck!

My teenage daughter is doing her Duke of Edinburgh bronze award in a few weeks, would this be good for her? Blooming thing has cost us about £400 in equipment already!


I love the Dry range of clothes - so I would recommend them and suggest you get one if she doesnt have anything like it so far.

Multiple layers are always the answer to regulating heat during activity. its the layers of warm air trapped between that maintain the heat ( much better than a tradional big jumper) and its easy to take a single layer off it need be.


FWIW the Warm (or Ice) range of Helly clothing is not quite as good it used to be and IceBreaker is a better brand from what I have been told (100% merino wool).

Depends on the conditions. A friend of mine entered Tough Guy on one of the coldest years ever - there were a lot of people stripped of wet clothes and trying to recovery from hypothermia (not funny) - so this wont really help (if its wet).

Perhaps a dry suit will be in order if the conditions are as freaky next year? Check the tough guys forums for recommendations IMO.

On the other hand a good thermal base layer makes training more pleasurable and Ive loved Helly Stuff.

IMO, you should go for the next size up unless you have a very athletic build, as I am normally a medium or large and found the Large stripe cut too narrow across the shoulders.

I'm thinking 'why would anyone want to do that - in January too?'.
