Martin, this has been discussed before so, while you're waiting for replies, do a search on 'drysuit'. HTH

We got suits from the same manufacturer and managed a reasonable discount because of getting 2.

Ours are Crewsaver and certainly essential for winter trips. Got em a bit large so that we (well I really) can wear lots of fleecies underneath.

OK and I'm fat too

(Love Bicester BTW)

I have a breathable Typhoon dry suit and very happy with it, keeps me very dry and warm, took some friends out in my rib from Poole back in April/May, they were all wearing Jumpers and Fleeces, and all I had on was a T-Shirt Shorts and my Dry suit, they were cold and I had no complaints only the fact that I then had to buy my other half one!!

Dry Suits

I sail(yes with a rag!) every weekend through out the winter and fall in with depressing regularity so would heartily recommend the drysuits from:- http://www.trident-uk.com .

Nice people, good service and mine has lasted 3 years hard use now and still going strong. Not trendy name but good quality stuff.

Gawd yer gotta love that Peteb, Flank...Happ...whatever the hell he is calling himself in an attempt not to be the person that was banned this week. I found his incisive comments on stepped hulls based on his experience of the Larson deltaconic whasname thinggamummy particularly good. Makes that Fuller bloke look as though he knows nothing doesn't he.

Dry "suites" are available at all good branches of MFI as advertised by Linda "I like them and I think you will too" Barker. Nice three piece ones in leather.

For those who haven't seen the many threads in the past regarding dry suits then one word "Ravenspring". I thank you....

The Helly Hanson Dry Suits Are S*it

Gavin bought one this year..... around Feb I think..... I believe he is now on Number 3 ... and looking to replace that one too ....... I think you would be better off wearing a Teabag .... Design problem with the latex seals, and how there are joined to the suit... the latex perishes at this piont and leaks .......

Gavin can fill You in
