Dare2Be mens winter sports suit (jacket & pants) £35.48 @ mandmdirect

8
Found 2nd Feb 2010
Seems like a good deal if you're off for a half-term ski break and need some decent quality gear...

Ski jacket (waterproof (5000mm rated), windproof & breathable with taped seams) and ski pants/salopettes for less than £35 after cashback seems good to me.
Normally salopettes are around £30 anyway...

At time of posting all sizes available except Medium

Also code AS33 for free delivery (minimum £50 spend) if you're buying other stuff too

Similar set (if you don't like the bright orange) for £7 more here: mandmdirect.com/pro…htm (Dare2B mens 'sharpshoot' set)
Or approx £10 more here for same 'Sprinter' suit in different colour: mandmdirect.com/pro…htm

For comparison the cheapest I can see this sprinter suit elsewhere in stock (outside of eBay) is £70...

Nothing if you ask me...but was just pre-empting the "it's so ugly" responses :thumbsup:

Also two pairs of ski socks for £1.99 to add to the order seems good to me too: mandmdirect.com/Pro…OV1

I do not agree with the OP on the decent quality gear, Dare2b is a good enough brand but at best these are prob 2000mm, i.e. you will get soaked very easily... (unless your confident you wont fall on snow and get wet in the process)
Its not fun when your wet in the snow... (depending where you are it can be even classed as dangerous)

Recommended for people who dont plan to get into much contact with snow/water. Skiiers (or boarders) who are experienced enough to not fall and dont plan to push themselves.

Not sure on the level in mm, but it's istoex coated, I would say 3,000 minimum but more likely to be rated at 5,000 - plenty for an average user.

Pop into TXMaxx and have a gander as theres a few dare2b snowsports stuff which has isotex which only has 1000,2000,4000mm (yes there are some which are some which are 5000mm and 10,000mm but they're not easy to find)

Suppose you can ring them up and ask, but I wouldnt personally take a gamble in fear of wasting £35 for something which may not work v well plus you cant try it on.

Edit: I would also assume its low mm because I remember @ tkmaxx they have a fat 4,000/5,000mm label where it says isotex, whereas if you zoom in on the jacket it has nothing of the such. But I'd be glad if you prove me otherwise, then i'd get some.. lol

Gladly:
The Sprinter jacket in the OP is rated at 5,000mm (]source)
The 'sharpshoot' set mentioned in my second post (@ ~£42 delivered) is rated as 3,000mm (]source)
