    I have worn a long woolly jumper for the best part of 25 years when fishing and I've found I never suffer from a cold back(end) My wife's aunt knitted it for the father in-law but it was way too big for him, I'll ask her to knit you one Alan
    I had it on today with only a thin cotton shirt under whilst digging out 3 days worth of snow and ice from the driveway and never felt the cold. Mind I did knock my crutch away a few times with the shovel

    You want:
    Aldi thermals - a full set is under £9.00.
    An ex-army SHIRT - MANS FIELD.
    These cost around £8.00 and are green, pullover, and are zipped at the neck with a roll-top. No hood, BUT- they are long enough to tuck into whatever trousers you wear and mine covers my harris quite comfortably. The body heat can't get out. They are made for the cold. We've had 17 degs below this week (in Powys) and I've been out with the dogs at first light with mine and just a jumper and jacket on top. A scarf. woolly hat and gloves and I've been quite warm.

    The Aldi thermals are a steal BTW. Good fit and well-designed - can't recommend them enough.

    Have a look at woolovers.com, they seem very reasonable and you may find what you are after at this website.

    Remember, in cold weather to wear thin light under garments to trap the heat, while warm overgarments keep out the cold and reduce the windchill.

    Best of luck and happy hunting.

    I have the Aldi thermals as well and have found them to be quite good. Last week shmbo got me a new set in a local shop for €12.00 legging and top. They are brilliant under a light tee shirt and heavy jumper, fleece type track suit bottom and my Sunridge -10 bib and brace. Ron Thomson moon boots,thermal socks, over thin wool socks. Russian style hat and snowboard gloves. Ready for anything the weather Gods can throw at me. If I could just locate the fish, I would be laughing.

    Alan, if you have the money and you want a good warm windproof garment with a long back then you can not go wrong with any of the Buffalo P5 or P6 shirts. They range in price around the £100 mark and many of the Military fraternity swear by them. Just have a look at Buffalosystems.co.uk.

    Probably not what you're after exactly but I swear by the very sound thermals by Damart(if they still exist!).......
    They do(or did)an all-in-one thermal or seperate top and bottom with tops offered with extra long body.I have worn these for years-light version for very early summer mornings etc or the heavy duty type for winter and they've always done a very good job.(Probably a bit old fashion now but still still good!)

    I like the 'layered' approach personally so if I have thermals on and it gets warm I can always shed a woollen jumper..........this is in preference to a single outfit which,IMO is not as practical EXCEPT in very cold weather when they are perfect!

    One things for sure,I never suffer with ther dreaded 'air gap' bewteen top and bottom!!

    ps Kevin o' Connor seems to have it about right!

    I have a set of "Jack Wolf Skin" thermals, leggins and top which has a generous length to the back. Also use "Crag Hopper" thermal lined trousers, TK Max best place, around £25 instead of usual £40-45.
    Also use one piece quilted and waterproof suit.
    Just can't keep the feet warm!
