Dry suit

Do most of you use a dry suit when launching if so is it best to get an all in one or a 2 piece.
Or best to wear chest waders and a good breathable suit.

Is there a good range thats worth getting

Dry Suits

Hi

I much prefer Gortex salopettes, a good offshore jacket and wellie boots so long as i'm only getting my ankles wet, much more comfortable to wear for long times and the added bonus of being able to take a pee when you want, on the other hand if i'm launching off a beach as i was at the weekend then i prefer a dry suit every time as your likely to be in to your waist getting boats on and off.

Lots of different manufacturers out there making various quality dry suits, pay your money and take your choice, if you have a bottomless pit of money have one made to measure with appropriatly placed zips, breathable material, pockets and built in boots, if your on a budget go for what you can afford.

I have just bought 4 new dry suits for work from Boat and Jetski world.
There made by Sola and they are one piece breathable ones.
I think they were about 250, they seem very good. Time will tell as to how long they last!.
