Bill Robertson asks
Do you sell dinghy boots to wear with Dry Launching trousers?
Yes we do and what works best is a wetsuit boot a size larger than you would normally take and they will need an opening down the side with a zip or laces which enables you to put them on and take them off again
I hope that helps
What hip size is small broad please?
The small broad is to suit about 42 inches on the hips.
The trousers should accommodate a hip measurement slightly larger if measurements around the hips are less
Any questions please let us know or if it's easier you could call us on 0191 4901736
Malcolm Chalmers asks
Hi, sounds ideal for use in a RIB for launching etc, but would they be safe if accidentally falling overboard<
My son drives RIB for university sailing team, launching from stoney beach. Think these would be good idea for him - l presume he would need to wear some footwear as well so wouldn't wear holes in the attached socks?? (Wellies would fill with water obviously so thinking his Zhik dinghy shoes??). He is 6'3" but with very slim 32" waist, probably needs large for the length but maximum medium for body fit?? Would appreciate advice on footwear and fit. Many thanks.
Hi, You're right, footwear does need to be worn as the latex socks will get damaged easily. A pair of conventional dinghy boots will work fine.
As regards sizing I would suggest large, which might be a bit baggy but will be more suited in the leg length. The other option is to go for a made to measure set which will cost an additional £35 and can be found here;
Michael Cox asks
I am thinking of ordering a medium broad launching trousers, do you have any info on the equivalent shoe size(range)
I am 5'10, 34/36 waist.
Hi Michael, It has a large sock fitted which probably fits about size 8-12.
The way to fit them is pull the sock on so your toes are at the end and then any lose material goes around the ankle.
Alistair Waterston asks
Probably a small broad size. Can it have ankle seals instead of feet?
<p>Hi, yes we can put ankle seals onto our Dry Launching Trousers in place of the latex socks, and there are a couple more optional extras you can add too. Please use our product <a href="http://www.tridentuk.com/gb/trident-custom-made-dry-launching-trousers.html">Trident Custom Made Dry Launching Trousers</a> to tailor the Dry Launchers to your requirements.

Tim Lucas asks
What size launching trousers please?
I'm 39 inch chest and my height is 5 ft 11 inches
<p>Hi Tim, to make sure we advise the correct size, please could you also supply your hip measurement (the measurement round your widest part, rather than the usual waist measurement for trousers). Many thanks, Kieran Parslow</p>
Thomas Tong asks
Just wonder that would it work well with dinghy smock for the effect of waterproof ? Would the bottom of smock, neoprene stick with the dry trousers tightly ?
Hi Thomas and thanks for your question.
This combination would be 'splash proof' and 'rain proof' however it would not be waterproof. If you were submerged fully into the water you will get wet.
If you are looking for a waterproof solution I would recommend a Drysuit.
I hope this helps.
george taylor asks
Hi could you supply a set of m/b launching trousers with a 42 sock at the normal price?
The medium broad will have a large sock on as standard which would fit a range from about 40 to 46
You can order the custom launching trousers and specify a medium sock which is the same price, the only difference is it changes the T&C's of sale as you are not ordering an off the shelf item.

I hope that helps
