Custom made drysuits

Hi Guys,

Been thinking about having a drysuit made as I don't fit the standard measurements eg I am short and stubby!!

Has anybody had any experience of these firms? :

I need one for sailing and on the Rib.

I have a similar problem and always had mine made at 'Robin hood water sports' they make theirs in house and I can say they do last for years.
The last time I was there it had expanded into different sections, they even have their own pool so you can try before you buy!

Hope it helps

My mtm suits come from polar bears. Others swear by lomo or seal skin.

Top man JJ. Have bought every drysuit I have ever owned from him - 20years since my first
Let him know its a surface suit (I presume) you want it for
