Dry Suit advice
« on: May 07, 2018, 07:56:12 AM »

    My 10+ year old dry suit has lost a tooth in the zipper, so I'll be getting a new one...can't complain, I've gotten many years of heavy use from it, and now it's time to buy a new one. I do know something about dry suits, but a cord of many strands is always stronger than a single strand, so any advice or comments anyone has would be appreciated!

Tony, I've had good luck with my Kokatat dry suit. They stand behind their product.
I had to send it back because of wetness and they sent me a new one even after a few years of use !
Boy they are expensive now but well worth the years you'll get from them.

Make sure you take advantage of the "Customizer" on the Kokatat website for sizing adjustments.

Thanks, Cam! I just placed my order...I was going to wait until the end of September and get by with wetsuits until then, but this offer was just too good to let pass by.

I can get dry suits from Peak Uk.

Just a thought.  Top end kit.
