...they do look good. A longsleeve top and pair of shorts sound toasty! 8)

I have done a couple of dives now in my new set of ARCTIC gears and they are WARM,I deliberately soaked the arms to see how it would perform,and even soaked they provided insulation and warmth,I can understand how a product of this standard could be used in Everest expeditions.
And the top looks pretty good on,the bottoms are too long so look ridiculous... :D
But you could easily get away with wearing the top about as previously mentioned with some track pants...or whatever..

Bottom line..
They are definately worth the money...

I would second that. The arctic outshines everything else on the market for me. Yes they maybe the world's most expensive pyjamas :lol: but are definitely good value. The last time I used mine, I was actually glad my feet got wet on the boat when I had taken my suit off so I could cool down!!!!!!
