Are they worth having do they keep you warm when just sat for hours fishing etc. Comments appreciated
Dry suits are great to keep you dry and afloat the clothing you wear underneath keeps you warm get one with front entry zip so you can dress yourself and have a pee easy also get one with boots on better for walking and keeping your feet warm and lastly get neoprene neck and wrist seals they are more comfortable and last longer

dry suit is a must if you are planning to go to sea look at Marino wool for base layers for keeping warm and EPRIB would be good idea to if you are planning to go solo with a emergency grab bag if you have a look back on here you will get a good idea what to carry
