I use one made by a company called Ravenspring

http://www.ravenspring.co.uk/system/index.html

Mine has hard boots attached, and a waterproof fly zip fitted. The material is extremely light, but reinforced where neccessary, and is breathable so I don't sweat. Its not the cheapest, but the service and help Ive had from the company has been 1st class, highly reccommended. I cannot fault this suit so far.

Hi Martyn

We got a deal from Andark for getting two suits and wouldn't look back really. Zebedee was quite like your boat in that we were 'at one with the elements'!!!! and we certainly never regretted the drysuit purchase.

Dry Suit Repair

HI,

We have just had all the seals replaced on all our dry suits and we use a company called Hammond Drysuits Ltd, Based in Wilmington Kent, Posted all the suits off to them and within 3 days they had sent them all back fully repaired and tested, Have used them 3 or 4 times now and they are great. Phone number is 01322 523583.

I can highly reccomend them

Julian
