Foot Wear

I have just purchased Camel Trophy dry suits for me and the other half.

What did they wear on their feet? The dry suits have no built in feet.

What do you reccomend? Brands/Websites etc

I have just ordered my Drysuit from Ravenspring. They do 3 options for feet - hard boots, built in neoprene socks, or ankle seals.

If you opt for the ankle seals they recommend a 3/4 neoprene boot - like a divers boot, which then comes up above the ankle seal.

You can then wear trainers or deck shoes fr when you are not itending to get wet - e.g. on the way to the pub!

This is where we got them from - they have other Camel kit listed but not the lifejackets any more - think they would be worth a call though.

Hi guys,
This seems to be turning into a bit of a private thread!
So I thought I had better add something to it! I've got both the above (lifejacket and epirb) and both are in excellent condition. I did buy both for friends as well, so if you are desperate for the lifejacket (to match the suite you tart! ) Jono, I will ask if he wants to sell.
Haven't tried my suit yet Jono. I didn't want to end up stuck in it, by myself in a hotel room!!. Would have been a bit sad calling room service to help me get out of it! It does look a tad small for me though Hope I don't have to end up selling it.
Hope you all have a good day on the Thames. I'm on the Thames as well but up at Reading. Suggested to the g/f about joining you lot, but she has her heart set on just us.
Cheers,
Andy.
