Best buy on dry suits

Does anyone have any tops tips on where to get a good ribbing dry suit(s)?

Now that Summer is on the way, I should really think about getting prepared for next Autumn.

I got mine custom made at Raven Spring. After a few months, it started leaking water.. so I sent it back... apparently the glue had failed or something... so they made me a new one, with a couple of modifications free of charge... its perfect now... very good service. Would definately buy again from them!

I got mine direct from the Lomo store in Glasgow. Tornado Drysuit Mark II. Breathable with cordura reinforcing on the knees and bum and latex collar, cuffs and socks. Retails at 175. They are on the web at Mine kept me bone dry all last week and I seemed to be in the water constantly. Highly recommended

Totally agree with the Lomo Tornado being excellent value. Had an original Mark 1 which was replaced free when the Mark 2 came out. Have used it extensively in West of Scotland, the Solent and Inland Waters and it has never let me down.
Service provided by ewetsuits is first class.
