Landjoff brand?

Postby Adventurer » Dec 4, 2011 6:48 pm

I was wondering if anyone has bought,used or know of the Landjoff line of caving products,in particular the cave coveralls they make.In my search for a cave suit,its one of the names mentioned on E-Bay for a suit.The suits sound decent and cheap(about $115),but no where can i find reviews.The bags and such they make,I have read good reviews on.

John now has a website for Landjoff stuff.

I use the Landjoff pack for project work. It holds up really well.

So I purchased a pair of the Landjoff coveralls.
Waterproof,scuff resistant,the built in suspenders are a godsend,keeping the coveralls snug and always ready for a good crawl.The only complaint is lack of pockets(1 inside pocket) and no zipper.Other than that,these are extremely lightweight and comfortable-just make sure you wait until you get to the cave before putting them on(and wear something THIN underneath(breathable nylon pants for me),these are also quite nice temp. wise in a cave,not outside.Also,the price cant be beat.
i would say a 9/10 for these.

The coveralls are well made. The inside of the nylon is sealed so they are very waterproof. Of course, that makes them very warm - too warm for dry, mid to lower latitude US caving. That being said, I prefer them over PVC for wet caving as they keep you relatively dry but continue to provide warmth when you stop moving.

As for myself,im 6 foot 200 lbs,and the tough as nails nylon lets me do some serious squeezing,without clothes catching or ripping.Also,our caves in the northeast(Nova Scotia,Canada) are always cool and soggy.
