a 190 will be ok take the air out of your suit and wear ankle weights a lot cheaper that will keep your legs down the water will compress the suit and force the air out, as divers we regularly swim around with just dry suits on without problems just practice righting yourself and have minimal air in your suit.

Managed to cut a deal on the HPX , all seems very good regards seals/wear etc.

Bit of a shock wearing it at first with the neck tiredness , tested it in the shower and zero leaks so all cool.
