Don't overlook products by Mullion and fladden. I use a fladden suit and it;s tough warm watrproof and has a seamans price tag as opposed to a yachties price tag

RIBase
I use a Polar Bear dry suit www.polarbears.co.uk

My boat suit has built in boots and latex seals. When the need replacing I'll be putting neo ones on as they are more comfertable when worn for long periods and not totally submerged.

What about Musto or HH ? Are they worth the extra money ? What is so great about them that they ask double the price of "regular" dry-suits ?

Most of the dry-suits that I see are specifically for diving; which dry-suit is perfect for on a RIB?, where the whole idea is not to go diving but where you can get seriously wet.

My experience is that it's far, far easier than needing a pee in a traffic jam on the A30 in Cornwall last weekend. Eventually, a few girls just lost the will to hang on to their dignity. The blokes just stood there talking and laughing and peeing up the wheels of their cars
