anyone had or seen one of the oversuits that they sell in caving supplies in buxton?

going to go and get one, but they dont sell beavers there, so i either have to drive for an hour and half to ingleton for a beaver or 25mins to buxton for the ones they sell.

they are more expensive than the beavers, but what i'll save in petrol will cover that

any info help advice?

tar-lar

I would go to Ingleton to be honest.

Bernies cafe for Beaver and next door you have Inglesport for the Warmbacs.

I used to have a Beaver, but now i use a Warmbac. Much better than the Beaver in my opinion.

the only thing with the Warmbacs is they are 2 different colours, which means they have more seams, pluss they look like a rental when you're in the dales.

have you seen the suits from caving supplies?

I would definately go to Ingleton where you have two competing shops right next to each other. I found Bernies were polite, helpful and obliging, whereas Inglesports were abrasive, discoureous and blatantly profiteering.

Can I also suggest that you post when you do the shopping trip as other may like to join you and help cover the fuel cost? Also, why not make a whole day of it and invite Joel to come along and take you down some Yorkshire glory holes?

For me the warmback is the best suit, I have worn out several other kinds including a made to measure one, warmbacks are brilliant.
I got my current one from Inlesport and they were prepared to haggle over the price, I got a tenner off.
:woohoo:
