I had a drysuit, a DUI CF200. Yes, it was warm, yes, it was dry, yes it cost aorund $900 on Ebay new.

If you want to bug dive don't buy a drysuit.

If you want to cover a lot of ground, don't buy a drysuit.

If you think you'll ever may need to swim in current to get to the boat, don't buy a drysuit.

If you want to kick a lot and go no where, but a dry suit.

If you want to have a lot of drag in the water, spend $350 a year on upkeep, and worry a lot about your seals, but remian toasty on top even on a frigid winter day...but a dry suit.

I do fine in a 7mm wetsuit with a hooded vest. Sure, a drysuit is really comfy, but if you want comfy stay home in your goose down bed.
