CHEAP Immersion suit for the lanky+lardy ones among us

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/EX-SBS-DPM-Imm...QQcmdZViewItem

I've just grabbed the other one he had for sale-it's quite rare to find anything vaguely like a drysuit for sale 2nd hand that's this big.

I'm not actually sure-it LOOKS like a sailing drysuit with elasticated legs.

It's cheap enough that if it lasts one season it's worth it though-just for the luxury of warmth and normal clothes in the winter,the pee zip and dry feet.

OK you've convinced me! Next time you are out I'll be the one in a DPM gimpsuit, unless it actually is the SBS, wonder if there is an RFID tag in it - hmm spooky!

Well... Mine's arrived.

Pretty much a thin membrane drysuit that's designed to go over your shoes-and has pockets. Bargain!

No RFID tag in it though.

Won mine so I'll let you know when it arrives not sure what I'll be doing with the feet yet. Could chop em off and put some membrane boots on or just bond on some latex socks next time I'm at the SM stall at the Bizare Bazaar.

yeah the feet are a bit cumbersome. How much is a set of membrane boots?

I bought the one with dead seals as I decided it'd be better to get a new set in there from when I bought it.

Almost all dive shps will know someone local who can supply and fit a number of different types of boot.

trilaminate membrane boots (some with steel toecaps)
neoprene boots

I'd imagine you could probably get neoprene lined tri-laminate boots they'd be comfy. Price wise not to sure as I have never had to do mine. Latex socks would be the cheapest. The repairs arent that diifcult glueing on wrist and neck seals are faily easy jobs.

Would the neoprene lined boots on here be the right kind?

By the way, the website above DOESNT appear to have secure payment so don't blame me if anyone buys from them and gets scammed....
