Due to the ongoing and evolving "LOCKDOWN" situation in place since early 2020, we are anticipating a small delay in processing of orders and subsequent shipping due to a reduced workforce, in both our warehouses, and those of our suppliers.

Whilst we are trying our best to continue in a business as usual, we must again close our retail showroom doors temporarily to support the Governments COVID19 Strategy. Throughout this temporary closure we will still be shipping items from our warehouses and those of our suppliers, but it may at times be subject to a small delay.

The quickest way to get an answer to any questions you may have is to email us on customerservices@chasnewensmarine.co.uk Alternatively should you wish to actually speak to a member of our team, please call us on 02087884587 and Choose Option 1.



The lightest flotation suits on the market. This is a very affordable one piece flotation suit that does not compromise safety. 

The lightest 1 piece floatation suit on the market. Both for sea-use and for ice fishing.The suit comes with the same extreme buoyancy and thermal protection as the other Fladen Rescue System Suits. EN 393 and ISO -15027-1 certified as Floation immersion suit.

The buoyancy requirements set by EN393 regs say that a suit of size XL must have a buoyancy of at least 50 newtons. The Fladen suit has a buoyancy of 85 newtons, which means it exceeds the 'basic' standards by a considerable margin, making it safer than other competing products. This product, is also one of the few suits in the UK meeting ISO15027-1 which basically means it is an approved and tested immersion suit (i.e. will protect you from the cold of the water, as opposed to just keeping you afloat).


  • Immersion suit standards
  • ISO 15027-1 compliant
  • Flotation garment EN393 compliant
  • SOLAS/USCG reflectors (400cm/sq)
  • Neoprene inner-cuffs
  • CE 394 Approved Whistle
  • Insulated Hood and Collar
  • 7 Pockets (2 fleece lined)
  • Hi Vis Fluorescent Colours
  • Double stitched water-tight seams


In ISO 15027-1 tests at 5 degrees C water temperature body heat loss was only 1.2 degrees after 1 hour when wearing the Fladen one piece suit. One of the few suits in the UK meeting ISO15027-1. Which basically means it is approved and tested as an Immersion Suit protecting the wearer from the cold water, as well as keeping them afloat.

    Total weight - approx. 2.2kg - This is very light for a one piece suit, especially one that is so well made, not only do we sell these suits but we stand behind them 100% with all of our full time afloat staff having one of their own that they love!

    This is an excellent quality flotation suit, which you could EASILY pay in excess of £145 for in many retail fishing shops. We supply both the new and improved Black / Yellow and the traditional Scandia Blue / Yellow Fladen Floatation Suits as shown in the photographs.

    As well as sea, shore or big lake fishing these are also ideal suits for gliding, micro lighting and anywhere else where warmth and visibility are important - in fact - we have sold them throughout the UK and overseas to people in all walks of life...

    We try and keep every size in stock all year round and available for immediate shipping or collection, however at times demand can outstrip supply, so you need to be quick if you want to keep warm on the water this winter!! Stock is flying out the door at the moment, and when they are gone, they are gone!

    • Hiya How waterproof are these. Need something better than dickies apparently waterproof coverall for farm work and riding out horses. Also . Size wise I'm 66kg but 5'8" I don't want to be swamped!! Cheers El

      We use them working on the river and have had no problems with the waterproofing.
      Due to the buoyancy and insulation. they are quite bulky.

    • Would you know if these are used as immersion / survival suits in the Wind Industry? Is there any protection for the feet at all built in to these?

      We're not aware of them being used in the wind industry. There is no foot protection built into these suits.

    • Is the Fladen 1 piece suit made of breathable material?

      I’m afraid I cannot find any reference to the fabric being breathable, all I can see on our system regarding the fabric is the following:
