Yup, they sure are. Alive, comfortable, enjoying our RIBing.
But seriously, we picked three of our friends out of the sea last weekend. One (who'd been in the water longest) was in mild shock and in risk of becoming a real casualty. Have you seen the difference in survival times, in the sea, between ordinary wet weather gear and a drysuit? It makes very sobering reading.
If you're planning winter RIBing, either get in touch with Matiboy on this forum (if you're a skinflint) or Ravenspring (if you want top quality and value) or Musto (if price is irrelevant).
