Carrier Bags
« on: June 11, 2019, 21:59:37 PM »
Not a whinge about them being 5p but I just read a "helpfull hint" on a.n. other place (wot I before Thot off).
For those that use oversuits --- keep a carrier bag with the suit: put said carrier bag over a boot: insert said boot into suit leg : etc   .
Stops the boot catching allegedly. Sounded like a smart idea to me.

Old skool eh?  They have holes in 'em to stop nippers suffocating these days  ;D Also you'd look like a poverty stricken muppet.  I'm not a big fan of Goretex suits, but in boots it works very well.

I don’t think you’re supposed to leave the shopping bags on your feet Three Dawg! They just make it easier to get a one piece suit on over your boots. Whip ‘em off when you’re leg’s through, so to speak.

However, now the idea has been mooted (and it’s a good one), let’s flesh it out a bit.

What brand of carrier bags would you be prepared to wear over your boots?  Aldi on the left and Netto on the right? A matching pair? Something upmarket... Harrods, Fortnum & Masons?

Would the Asda ‘bag for life’ promise still apply?

'04 TDM900, ‘84 XL600R (again), ‘08 Ulysses XT

I’m trying to be the person my dog already thinks I am.

 ??? I should have written an Application Procedure to clarify the intended method of use !
Builders bags probably best for 3dawgs application !!
