Carradice raingear
« on: March 22, 2017, 10:04:54 PM »
Now all gone to new owners

The following items of Carradice waxed cotton raingear have been sitting in a cupboard for several years, so they are available for the cost of postage from France if anyone wants to try this sort of gear.

I found waxed cotton was too warm for me when cycling. It might work OK for someone else or in a cooler climate. Other particularity - to me this raingear smells of wet dog.

Large size, so spats and shoe covers are for about Eur 45 shoe size, maybe larger, trousers and jacket are an ample fit on a 90 Kg 1m80 rider. Helmet cover probably doesn't suit peaked helmets.

Apart from the spats and shoe covers, which have been used a bit, the rest of the gear is hardly used and as far as I can tell it is all in reasonable condition.

I work as a botanist, so at this time of year I may be slow in replying.

I would be very grateful for the overtrousers.  I have the jacket which I really like but have no protection for the legs.  :)

Any idea of the cost for getting the Jacket to me in Bath BA3 3RP please. Been after one for years, as the saying goes Duxback - Hens Teeth.
Thanks Stu.
