I`ll let you know once I bought my suit !
Cheers !

Wie Gehts Jürgen,
as previously mentioned you can get cheaper drysuits but, in the UK, the going rate for a something decent is about £300. I bought my first drysuits (for myself, wife and son) at the start of last year. Typhoon Max B and I couldn't be happier with them. Goretex with built in socks and neo cuffs/collar. Cost £299 each from Wetsuit Outlet - Offering Great Deals on Water Sport Equipment Clothing Drysuits Wetsuits. Great service (dispatched on the same day and received following day). I am just a customer and have nothing to do wetsuit outlet. Good Luck mate.

Yes. I bought my Typhoon from Wetsuit Outlet. Excellent service. I wanted a convenience zip and shorter legs. They put me in touch with Typhoon, who did a great job quickly. Excellent courteous service from both companies and a comfortable dry suit made in Britain.

Hi - danke gut !
Had a look at the Typhoon Max B . Does your`s have a pee zip ??
The current price @ drysuit outlet is 349,-GBP which sounds reasonable - but the pee zip cost 75,-GBP extra (!!!)
Heard already a few times that their service is great - but their respond time on emails is´nt ..
The suit I am interested in they do not have in my size and no reply yet whether they will get it nearest time or not .. ((

Regards - Jürgen

Treerat, it really comes down to breatheability. Suits designed for scuba diving do not breathe. Surface suits designed to breathe are much better as you won't retain as much moisture in the suit causing you to get cold. Remember we sweat to cool ourselves.

My scuba drysuit often has water droplets all over the inside of the suit. And yes I do get chilled sometimes in my scuba suit from water both inside and outside.
