These look good value.

I have a Palm suit. Keeps me dry so thats a bonus! I love them. Definitely get yourself one. Whichever brand it is you'll like it I'm sure. They are (in my opinion) an important piece of safety kit for sea journeys.

Just treated myself to one of those Lomo drysuits in readiness for the start of my boating season (I do most of my leisure boating between October - March). It should be arriving Monday :D

The most important feature I wanted on the new drysuit was a front zip. My existing suit has a rear entry zip and it means you have to hang around outside toilets waiting for someone to unzip you.
