"My Henri Lloyd Ocean Racer jacket and bib trouses were bought in 1988 after cheaper stuff failed to keep me warm and dry."
Same here, although as I recall the bib pants and jacket are from different lines, they are the same classic bright yellow, the year before "neon" was brought out. The color is now rather gray compared to what bright yellow used to be, and I'm afraid that even after soaking with ArmorAll one of these days the plastic is just going to crack because it feels stiffer than I remember.
Still, I trust it in extreme weather more than I trust my beloved newer GoreTex. Which wins hands-down in heat and humidity.
