Ravinspring Drysuit

I just tried out my new Ravinspring suit today and I am really impressed, I got the UNO with hard boots and Fly zip ( which I used twice) and found it very well made, with nice well thought out features........ And It didnt leak !!!!! I took someones suggestion and I fitted an astray in the neck seal (same size as my neck) over night to loosen it up a bit. As, when I was wearing it in the office The neck seal was very tight..... Its a lot more comfertable now, the ashtray did the trick!!! I wore it for about 4 hrs to day and was VVV happy.... If you dont have one.... Go and buy one now.... you will never use any thing else

Sorry for the delay being very busy

Hi to all,

Now the crusial point of the dry suit for 40/50 well in so many words looks good, colours are nice but is C.R.A.P..
The material is so light that is similar to a very cheaply made wind-shealed suit and is NOT breathable either.
In my opinion for what it actually worths the suit does not even worth 50.00.
I believe that Charles was right in saying that although they are cheap they are not up to any good.
Sorry guys!

Nice going Manos, it is indeed rare to see people these days apologising or correcting earlier assertions. That's what this forum is all about, like-minded people offering their experiences and advice founded on personal trials and purchases. Unfortunately a very good dry-suit comes with a hefty price-tag, that is exactly why it is expensive.

Cheers Charles

I always admit it if I'm wrong
I'm just sorry I've lost 55.00
But what the heck is not that much money (a vist to Odd Bins for the daily dose of wine LOLOL) and will try to get it back one way or the other LOLOL

Manos

reserve judgement

the material may be light , etc , etc

but you havent tried it yet , if it keeps you dry then at least its living up to its name - a dry suit

even if it does this just to keep you dry when launching a boat waist deep then it has been worth 40/50 quid

nobody expected on this forum for it to match the quality of an expensive suit

rember a fleece in a uk chandlers would cost more, so dont be so negative !!!

I too am disappointed that you are unhappy with your new suit, Manos.
However, you deserve 10 out of 10 for trying.
Nobody else did, and you just might have got the bargain of a lifetime.
So well done for keeping us all in the picture and up to date.
