Postby caveman73 » Jul 15, 2007 12:22 pm

Does anyone know of a company that makes one piece polyprop underwear, like the ones with the buttflap? :kewl:

I think these are common in the UK and europe they call them furry suits.
Some I found after a short google:

Several years back I got a "farmer john" style one piece suit with the "drop butt" from Sportsman's Guide. Not sure of their website address and too lazy to exit this and google it.

Are these the ones we see occasionally in old cowboy movies (mostly coloured red)? :grin:

Browsers with tabs are great!!! :kewl: (I'm assuming yours doesn't do tabs?)

My suit is conveniently mud brown.

OK, so "exit" ws the wrong word, I could have clicked onto another browser. My computer is old and slow and I'm on slow dial-up because I'm too cheap to pay the price for cable internet. If I have several webpages open a once my computer sometimes locks up. :-)

http://www.sportsmansguide.com

Click on Mens clothing, then underwear, then page 4 at the bottom is "poly-fleece union suit". I think it was $24.95

Or try looking at paddling clothing on the NRS web site.

At the risk of going off topic, I highly recommend that you do not google "furry suits"! :yikes:

:rofl: I put "caving" in the search as well, cause I though I might get some unwanted results otherwise.

I think it's "burrysuits" not "furry suits".
I know either Meander or Daleswear makes a "burrystretch undersuit" but those looked kind of pricey for a unionsuit, maybe because they were fleece, not polypropylene.
