Can a comfort zip be added to an existing dry suit, i have a cheapish HH dry suit and i wont wear it at the moment due to the fact that every time i get it on i need a pee, but its a pain to get off if i'm alone, so i tend not to wear it unless i know i'm going to get drenched or its freezing cold.

I know where you are coming from !

Yes this is something that can be done to most drysuits but its not cheap, the zip alone will cost about 50 plus the cost of doing it. The other thing to consider is whether your suit has any bulky seams in the way, because this could restrict where the zip can go.
