crewsaver phase 2 drysuit

Hi

Just wondering if anyone has tried these? , i'm either going for a crewsaver phase 2 drysuit or might stretch to a Musto MPX but wondering if the extra will be worth it . Spotted a few HPX deals but think thats overkill at this stage.

Advise welcome.

Thanks
D

Never seen the crewsavers, but if you are in the market for a drysuit, have a look at Typhoon. U.K. Made & based in the North East, great service.

Unless the weather really is really grim or I'm on the rescue boat (where I may end up in the water) I've stopped using a dry suit.

I have a set of Palm dry trousers which can be coupled with a range of tops. I have the matching dry top, an offshore coat, an inshore coat or a gillet.

Gives loads more options and dry suits are really for in the water, the combination with the offshore coat is the preferred but the dry cag is great if really wet.

+2 for Typhoon.
I have the Max B and use it for the RIB and dinghy sailing. Dry, comfortable and breathable. I usually carry a mask & snorkel on the rib and quite often drop over the side - Max B keeps me dry even after 20 or 30 mins bobbing about.

+3 for the typhoon.

I have the Ezeedon, and use it on the rib, sib, kayak and even on the stand up paddle board.

Another bit of advice, is go to a local stockist first and try on, as different companies have obscure sizing.

crewsaver phase 2 drysuit

Go for a front loader, that way you can zip yourself in & out un-aided. Personally I'd also go for neoprene seals & fabric feet.
