Yeah Rob, a little money and fame soon turns a young head! (I just wish I had any one of them!) :)
I'd quite like to have a young head again, but the fact is I'd still do the same stupid things, even with the hindsight of experience....

I did some modelling once like young Cameron, but mine was for socks gloves & balaclava's....

Hehe, yeah they have their advantages and disadvantages, but according to my mam and dad mostly advantages, I get reminded being old is harder on the old bones.

Great review and a bombproof bit of kit, mine has served me well and wouldn't hesitate to buy another the only thing I've done to mine is add some zip pulls but that's a personal preference I just find it easier.

Thanks for the comment. That's a good idea, especially if your wearing a chunk pair of gloves the zip pulls would definitely make it easier.

There is - somewhere on the net - a photo of a young (er) me modelling silk underwear halfway up a mountain...Black and White photo yet!

The problem is John, we can't un-see things....

reviewing silk thermals for one of the magazines...
I was young in those days and it was muscles that rippled then...
Mind you - the trousers were of my own design and build even then!

I just bought one of these and had to send it back for a replacement with longer sleeves. That arrived today and seems great. Seriously consider the sleeve length option in advance as the lead time is around 6 weeks at the moment.
