If you want to wear more lead, buy a dry duit
I wear less lead with my drysuit than I did in my wetsuit.

If you want another point of potential failure, buy a dry suit
Apparantly you've never had to patch holes in a wetsuit.

If you don't want to use that suit for free diving, buy a dry suit
That goes without saying.

If you don't want to pout hot water from the hot tub down your suit, buy a dry suit
That water will eventually cool. If you have a good drysuit, you get out of it warm and dry.

If you can hold your pee indefinitely, buy a dry suit
I never peed in my wetsuit in 800 dives, I can handle a drysuit even easier.

If you're a male and like wearing 'condoms', buy a dry suit
I only wear a condom if I'm getting wet in another way.

The only time I am willing to wear my wetsuit these days is when the drysuit is in the shop. Like any other piece of gear, it requires maintenance and occasionally repair.
