My only advice is to NEVER buy one with Latex socks

I bought a second hand dry suit from a local dive school .he had all sizes so even had one to fit me.really tough suit with proper boots .only problem is no pee hatch and is heavy to wear.might be a cheap option for you if a school local to you is replacing theirs.i paid 100

I had a drysuit, but didn't like it, felt like the michelin man when wearing it.



I'm going to go down the Kayakkers route with waterproof bib and brace with fitted socks and a Cag top.

If its owing to the air trapped inside its best to bend your knees & do a quick squat to vent excess air out before closing the zip fully or you can pull the neck seal open with a finger , having too much air inside can cause buoyancy & movement problems .

also if air is trapped, when you do enter the water, the air escaping opens up the neck seal and lets a little water in. release the air and you wont have any problems. oh and i always have fitted latex socks - one less place for water to get in.
