    Basically dont want to be restricted but want to be warm not bothered about masses of pockets.

    What do you guys wear and more important where do you et it from and how much :).

    Thanks in advance.

    And reading about it gloves it seems to be none of em work really well or thats how it comes across.

    Just wear a couple of layers instead of wearing one thick one .
    as you will get overheated and then this will result to you having to take it off .

    I usually wear a t shirt then a hooded top and if it's wet then put a coat on .

    I woul reccomend going to go outdoors and see what offers they have as there are some good quality items sold in there .

    In winter I wear 2 t-shirts, 2 jumpers, my sleeveless jacket, woolly hat and normal work trousers, thick socks and work boots.

    No matter how cold it is, I am always warm enough.

    I have a couple of pairs of woollen gloves with rubberised palms, but I seldom wear these as they hinder detailing and get wet when dipping the applicator and squeegee in bucket.

    yh as above, lots of layers, a sleeveless jacket is a must and 2 pairs of socks, dont bother with gloves, there more hassle then there worth for trad, get yourself a zippo handwarmer, i got mine for about a score and it stays warm for most of the day, believe me after detailing in the cold your fingers will HURT! the handwarmer is my best friend in the winter
