I have the Ravenspring 2 piece dry suit (duo). I only wear both halves in poor conditions, bottom half only for wading outside summer (combined with fleece / jacket etc). Very practical.

I have got a Ravenspring with the built in boots etc. It is 5 years old not and needs replacing.
I went into their Totnes office and found out that the only boots they fit now are GREEN!!!! They cannot get any black ones. This has put me off a bit. Perhaps fine if you ride horses or have a Barbour jacket??

I use a Gul Solent Drysuit and can recommend it.

At 200 I bought it as a reasonably priced replacement for my old rnli style typhoon suit.

The neoprene neck seals are certainly a lot softer on the neck, although lets in a slight amount of water if you take a wave over the head.

It's only 4 months old but seems durable enough. The lack of built in boots wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be - wetsuit boots dont do as much damage to the boat.

If you are at the boatshow, go and see Ryan at the Andark stand - he boats and dives, and will probably do a good boat show deal

Recommended Drysuits


If you are looking for a light weightsummer suit then Ravenspring are hard to beat on cost & fit.

Regarding the Woss Suit this is an excellent suit but make sure you get your measurements right.

Ultimate is an musto HPX Survival Suit. Totaly breathable and completely waterproof. This suit is designed to take the extreme ellements and beleive me they work. A one suit to do all jobs.

Thanks for all your replies, just got back from the show having ordered the Ravenspring, I found them very good to deal with and nothing was too much trouble, Black boots no problem! I'll let you know how it goes in a couple of weeks.
