I hear Shield are going bust, so some good deals to be had. CDC are shifting their stock at good prices. The company is looking for a buyer I'm told, so get in quick.

Got a new bib and brace for £25. Trade 1st have them listed at £60 :shock:

I used to love Shield. They were a bit expensive but really nice.

Went off them when they changed the design and now wear the Fat Hog ones,

I'm finding them to be a bit of a pain though. The zip off pouch is always hanging down and the press studs at the bottom of the legs come undone, as well as the stitching on the pockets after a while.

They've probably gone bust on account of their prices. A bit steep for what they are, but so many of these 'quality' brands are similar.

Yup, the whole landscape has changed mate. So much more choice in terms of everything these days.

I like the prodec bib and brace from toolstation for £17. I got a couple of pairs of Harris T-class bib and brace and they're really good quality but you can't wear any trousers underneath as they are quite tight fitting.
