Hopefully they will enjoy the experience instead of not wanting to come out with us.
Hoping there are two out there tucked away in a garage shed etc.
Dry suits aren't the most comfortable, and probably require adult intervention for entry and exit (certainly for 7 yr old if not the 9) as well as quickly being outgrown and the seals / feet being vulnerable to damage. So, I'd consider looking at flotation suits which are cheaper, warmer, most robust, etc. Of course its the extremities that get cold first so hat, good cloves, and something like a buff (or sailors towel scarf thingy!) to stop spray going down their necks would be important too.
