Typhoon Dry Suit PS330

With my new UK demo rib now on order I will have to replace my ageing Typhoon WOSS dry suit. Having looked at the Typhoon web page the PS330 caught my attention. Has anyone on the forum got this suit?
the red & black one is a standard product and the yellow one a limited edition. My choice is the red & black one.

I might be mixing my members, or indeed my unmemorable part numbers but I have a feeling ShinyShoe bought something like that earlier in the year. He sails dinghies so probably can tell you if it keeps the water out too!

Many thanks most helpful and as the clips shows easy to put on. I am hoping to visit Typhoon early December as we are their Polish distributor and will try on the suit and if they have my size then will come back with one.

Yip I've got the red.

Not worn it much this year. Nor been for a dinghy swim in it. But I've worn it up front on a RIB in a F5 gusting 6/7 and was thoroughly dry.

Liking the fabric socks. Love the warm bits that are removable.

Can't fault it.

Used the Typhoon in fairly cold environments and was very comfortable and warm.
It was a company suit, so when I got back to the real world, the only shock I got was the price...
As far as I am concerned, If I was buying, I would choose the PS330 for all day boating in wet environment as my day job... just a tad expensive for the recreational buyer...

Aye he's a star, not unlike a young Clarkson
We have the Typhoon MaxB suits & have been very happy with them. The PS330 looks a nice bit of kit

Looks great, nice and snug, plenty of pockets. It's probably a bit of overkill for most people though and a Max B or Multisport would be a whole lot less expensive and still more than adequate.

The Typhoon kit is all pretty good and is backed up with really good customer care.

Still, for anyone with the cash or a trade account a PS330 would be nice to have.

Many thanks for the positive feed back. I will for sure go for the red & black PS330. I will be doing some sea trials in February in Poland so will test it then.
