I had one I needed the boots changing on .. then, one I wanted a (ahem) fly zip on .. thats what you get for having two cans of lager after lunch at sea and the guys couldn't have been easier to deal with, and most importantly,.. they were able to alter the suit to perfect condition as if it was off the shelf The breathable fabric is amazing and yet so light, it doesn't seem feasible ! .. you can get reinforced knee pad and shin protection pockets too, they make them with thicker material where its needed like the leg fronts and buttocks, and thinner where less required to keep it light. For work I'd suggest heavier, but for a buzz out and about and leisure, I think its a good compromise

crewsaver suit with a good wooly bear underneath plus m'thermals if its really brrr cold- use it all literally year round for training- no probs and was only a couple of hundred squids. Whatever you get it needs to be breathable or you will sweat and then freeze

That is one thing with the crewsaver one I have. Any bare skin sweats like a Nun in a brothel.

Where are the prices? Say the 200 version?

I'm hoping to get a dry suit for next season, mainly for weather protection on the RIB. I'd like one that will be ok for me to do some snorkelling - NOT diving, but just swimming around on the surface with mask and snorkel. Will any of the suits mentioned in this thread be OK, or should I go for a 'diving' suit, like some of the higher spec Aqua tec ones?

yep thats what I have breathable its fine. Wife has a ravenspring cos she likes the built in wellies, and whilst it is ok and the service is exceptionally friendly we have had three now and none of them been free from leaks. In my mind not as good as the hyperdry but much more expensive
