The customer who bought this (from our IRL market stall in London) tried it on, Loved it so much she kept it on and walked off in it (after buying, ofc)! She was looking for a nicely insulated suit for regular daywear in the great outdoors, as she lives on a big (drafty) long boat and spends alot of time outside.

Most Vintage Snowsuits are dual purpose. If you work outside as a market trader, sail, grow vegetables or just like to be totally warm while out shopping or doing food deliveries, we highly advise you invest in a Vintage Snow suit they are a real game changer in the cold winter months!
