I popped into go outdoors for the sale bargains, saw these and decided to try one on, I went for the front opening with socks.

I went for the XL (big greedy christmas pudding filled man) I too currently have a typhoon wetsuit that has been great however it needs a new neck ankle and wrist seals and just for rubber replacements will be about 100-120.

The nice thing about the gul suit was the neoprene wrists and neck so it felt comfortable and no cutting required. I also tried on the gul boots to match.

Have to say very tempted, felt really comfortable, I can zip it up myself, has good wear patches on the knees and looked quite well made, but as other members have stated you get this for 175 to 180 online.

But then for 249 there's a Crewsaver Cirrus Drysuit with underfleece & bag from wetsuitoutlet.co.uk
This suit is breathable - is this a better piece of kit / value for money?

I suspect it's made in the same factory!!

Yes it's a better piece of kit, breathable helps if out for long periods. It does add a few quid to the price when compared with the Gul, which is a great price itself using the links but up by others.

By choice - I don't think there will be much to chose between them but I would be going for the Crewsaver
