You should get the standard WOSS which has a fully breathable yellow top.
The RNLI WOSS also falls to bits on the inside of the knees, the knee pads aren't very good.

I bought a Typhoon max b drysuit at the boat show last year and love it. It was one of the only ones I could get on and off on my own.

You need it in the winter months

Light, breathable, hard-wearing, made to measure, not top dollar

Had one for a good few years and think their great.

And their service is excellent, for adjustments or repairs, fast turnaround etc I use a rapide with hard boots which is light but strong

Thanks all - some really useful suggestions - will get ringing and decide on which to go for - the WOSS look great but then made to measure might be a better option being a girlie

We have a few lasses on our crew of various shape and size and they all seem fine with the Typhoon suit.

Thanks for all the suggestions

Have now placed an order for one Rapide with hard boots and one Uno with hard boots - both front zip

Ann at Ravenspring is lovely - really helpful and nothing's too much trouble - should be with us in about two weeks

The Typhoon looked great but just out of our price range and of course Ravenspring are made to measure - what more can you ask

Will let you know how we get on with them once tested

Thanks again

J

Apparently the RNLI have just stopped using Typhoon and have a new supplier, not sure who yet?
