Seasafe Xtreme suits

Does anyone have any comments, good or bad, about these suits.
I am interested because they have a built-in lifejacket, but I have doubts about:
Is the leg length adjustable
Is the leg velcro-able to fit the outside of the boot
Are the sleeves velcro-able to the outsides of gloves
And how do they adjust for body length versus leg length
What about the billowing effect at the waist

The top half looks identical to my Seasafe Explorer.I wouldn't be without it now. The sleeves aren't velcroable to gloves, but are pretty good at keeping the wind out anyway.

Personally I'd rather have the Explorer with the trousers over a one piece just for ease of use and being able to use it as just a jacket.

Yes.It's also got a built in harness which is really rather useful.The handheld VHF clips to it rather nicely with a tether going to the D ring.
