lets be honest here we havent had a cold winter for years ???
if its really cold I wear a Snugpak Venture Pile Shirt with just a very thin cotton tee shirt underneath I know its best worn next to skin but it helps to prolong the washing times and craghopper winter lined trousers and a Prologic thermo suit on top impossible to get cold in any temps you will see in this country

Completely agree with this last year I bought a sj9, the first one turned up with a rip in it but it fitted fine (size large) but had to send it back to total fishing tackle for them to replace it, they sent out exactly the same jacket in the same size but wouldnít even do up it was more like a small. I even had to check the label to see if they sent me the same size because of the difference.

As for my winter clothing I use a nice thermal base layer,a t shirt, a tracksuit on top, decent wool socks, then berghaus water proof trousers and either a trakker xp jacket (with the base layer zipped in) or my snukpack sj9.

A decent set of clothing, a decent sleeping bag is all you need for the winter and your be fine. I fish all winter no matter the weather and this keeps me warm all winter

I dont know about the latest stuff or the Fortis link. But i bought an original snugpak sleeka softie many years ago.
Everyone said they run big. About one size above most clothes shops. They were right.

Over the years, two fishing buddies have admired it and bought one. And the sizing was still true for them.
Mine is well over 10 years old and is like new. Its been soaked, slept in and covered in fish slime in its time.

Have a snugpak fortis sj9 which I rate very highly. Yes sizing may differ but honestly one of the best thermal jackets I have worn. Have numerous mates who swear by it in the military. I have never had any quality issues with it. Each to their own I guess . Just thought Iíd give my honest opinion.

Snugpak jackets - the sizing is just awful. No two seem to fit the same. I frankly gave in trying to find that fitted properly. Never had an issue with a jacket of any kind before. Quality questionable as well! Made in England usually means crap quality anyway!
Frankly, why do people still buy fishing clothing from tackle shops? Most items(not all) are overpriced and under perform. The clothing from Wofte is laughable. Should be called ****er Wear... LOL. Go on Military 1st website, loads are great gear to keep you warm and dry, way better than the dross from tackle companies. Another good place to look is Craghoppers, when they have a sale on, which is quite often... they do waterproof jackets that are, waterproof. Thermal jackets that actually keep you warm... always a carpy green version to chose from as well.

Yes mate. Though I can only compare them to my snugpak softie jacket. As ive never felt the need before. Previously it was setup in cargos. Then stick on some Polar fleece trousers. Real winter I had to take them off and put merino leggings on. Any colder and I just got in the bag.

This bib n brace felt like the snugpak. Wether they are warm enough is subjective to the individual and how cold they fish or how they feel the cold. But I liked the shiny inner, meant they were easy off and on. And the zip flare leg helped. But I could close them and velcro tighter so they didn't drag on floor

No idea of quality etc. But Prologic are often N overlooked. Brand here in the UK yet they are always decent stuff.

It's all about the layers.

Not raining - thermal leggings or tracky bottoms with Wofte Tech trousers over the top on the bottom half and thermal long sleeved t with short sleeved t over, then hoody then Fortis SJ9

Raining - exactly the same but Trakker XP Base mid-layer jacket under a Fortis Marine jacket

I bought one a few years ago and it is still going strong. Think I also paid c.£25 for it and wouldn't hesitate on buying another as and when this one has it's day as assuming it survives this winter, that is £10 a year and it keeps me very warm and dry

just got a snugpak sasquatch and its super warm (apparently designed for limited activity as well so perfect for fishing). Not waterproof but am going to combine it with the snugpak poncho for downpours.
If you want super warm and waterproof the only way forward is a sea fishing floatation suit but you have to get over the bright colours!

If you can swallow your pride...

I bought an Aldi 'Crane' bib n brace and jacket for last winter, worn for barbel fishing right through and just getting it back into use this autumn.

Cost £45. Superb. Possibly they'll be selling them again soon?

That's all really

Not really. If you open the jacket undo the suspender buckles, then it's easy to get your toys out. If you don't do a crazy dance then the suspenders will stay in place. At first I also thought that it would be a problem, but in reality it wasn't.

I have a fortis shirt 3 and itís perfect spring to autumn but when itís cold the sj9 comes out and thatís also brilliant Iíve also got the sallopettes and itís very rare they get worn if Iím honest but also have a look at the Snugpak Sasquatch as well

I also have the aqua f12 waterproofs and they also have been great but they are not warm they are litterally a shell and so have all Bases covered though you do pay carp tax for carp brands

Wouldn't you be better off with a fleece, thermals and a rather cheeky bobble hat all wrapped up in a GoreTex jacket? Those sj9's are well warm if you're active and a picklin. Nasty bitey pickles.

Looking for warm jacket for the winter.A couple of ones caught my eye first is snugpak sj9 yes I know its warm only downside is its not waterproof do you match it up with the fortis marine to make it waterproof ?. I be using the jacket for my pike fishing as well. Also aqua have brought out a new thermal f12 jacket and trouser which is waterproof but not sure how warm it is. Dont want a heavy weight jacket and dont mind paying if they work. Thank you in advance
