I've just about tried everything.
I used to use a dry suit untill the seals started to leak and break up. I had one with socks and found this difficult to get into and almost impossible to get out of
Was an excellent protector against the wet and cold. But was always the last man to be ready when getting to a destination for lunch and when leaving to come home....Blood sweat and tears and lots of wriggling on the floor
. If I ever bought another dry suit, I'd have one with built in boots, much easier. These are also expensive too!
I now use a much cheaper option of a one piece and two piece thermal floatation suit, depending on conditions and find these more than man enough to meet my needs and are much more comfortable and warmer.
However with this option you would need some long boots or waders to launch and recover with.
Hope this helps a little.
