Re: Musto br1 salopettes vs others
If you insist on calling them salopettes, then yes go with Musto or perhaps Henry Lloyd. But if it is bibs ye seek, then find the pair that fits you the best. Bibs can get very hot so you may not want to buy something that is more suitable for mid-winter in the North Atlantic when your intended use is “tropical” Chesapeake in the summertime. I have two pairs myself - one for inside the Bay and in the tropics and another pair for offshore in the fog and dreary. I was fortunate that I could get away with Gill. But once again, fit and comfort trumps cheap every time.
