Cheap NEW drysuits

No, I'm not selling any more Ravensprings...

I finally found one that'll fit me off the peg and it's only £139 new!

I spent last saturday trying on wetsuits . I asked for a xxl with the legs cut off half way and the middle formed over a wok .

They had turned a fan heater on in the changing room , incase i got cold

I tried on 4 suits and had to go outside for 10 mins between each one .

Have you bought yours yet?

I have one of the previous model of this and it has a tendency to let water in. It doesn't leak in a particular place, there seems to be a kind of osmosis taking place through the fabric.

Hopefully the problem is sorted now.

Hammond everytime for me.

Whilst they may not be cheap they are made to measure ideal for the odd shaped person like my good self and very comfy, very dry and lots of options available

All the best

It's arrived and it fits!

It'd probably fit someone taller and a bit wider than me too... I'm quite impressed.

Neither-the ankle seals on it are comfortable enough.

Matt,

I ask this because a friend has a drysuit like that. How you going to wet launch in the winter. Have a spare pair of boots ? Thats the way he does it. I would have thought with your skills you could glue those drysuit boots of yours in to the suit.
