    Fleecy Goodness

    I've got a Patagonia R2 for Spring/Summer/Autumn.

    Really light and should keep me all snuggled up from 12-18C. 2mm and wool lined.

    Relatively environmentally kosher too. I was originally after the front zip suit but couldn't get one. However, this has a very clever gusset system which looks the business so if it works I'll have the ease of access of a back zip with the flush-free benefits of a chest zip.

    just as well.You'd probably put it on back to front.
    If you end up like this feller,you've made it.

    I asked Juan if wearing the merino-lined suit meant he'd be shearing.He retorted,"Bugger off and get yer own"!

    Wore this last night and again this morning.

    Snug as a bug in a rug! Super comfortable. The clever design with the seams really works with movement not being restricted at all. No shoulder bunching when doing the swimming float kick.

    As for the wool, not only is it warm but it's really comfortable! It also dries really fast.

    The R2 is rated with a bottom end of 12C water temp. We're at 11C at the moment and I was fine.

    Very happy. cheers
