Dry-suits

I'm looking for a dry-suit that:
Has ankle seals so I can use it for water-skiing
Won't break the bank
Won't rip, leak, ... etc. first time out

Seen a typhoon at about £180 or NOS4R2's at £139

any more worth lookiing at ?

I've tried mine out properly now and it doesn't leak so I doubt you'll get better for the price

We have a Typhoon that is a couple of seasons old. Not heavily used but leaks somewhere quite drastic around the ankle. Not too obvious where from.

I would like to fit some boots on it but Andark have quoted me £80. Anyone know where it can be done for a more reasonable price ?

Not hugely cheaper, but you could try Seaskin:

They did a nice repair job on my drysuit, though I've not really put it to the test since repair yet.

Cheers

Chris
