Is it this one?

Not so sure about the MOD not throwing money away, trialling products and always ending up with good bits of kit though.

RN Dry Suits

dry suits, used by clearance / ships divers are made by Oceanic - the closest match available commercially is the Oceanic Aerdura Ti. The immersion suits are made by Typhoon and are top notch bits of kit.

I have used one of the fishery dry suits.
Very very good.
If you get one cheap or free hang on to it!!

I now use a Hammond most weekends.
Have to say top bit of kit.
Neoprene neck, rubber cuffs sown in boots.

Regards
