Do you put on your life jacket when you use the Dry suite. <BR> <BR>I have a Boost dry suite. If you dont let all the air out you puff up like a marshmello and float quite nice. I guess if you were to hit the water hard enough you might be able to bust a seal and start taking in water and sink like a rock. My question is how many of you where a life jacket when you wear you dry suite?

I wear one under the suit as does everyone I've known.

I don't because there is so much air in the dry suit that I float without any effort. Don't feel uncomfortable no wearing one. <BR> <BR>Chris <BR>Get the Grip you Deserve <BR><a href="http://www.wakejunky.com" target="_blank">www.wakejunky.com</a>

Non CGA vest with the drysuit, CGA while trunking it. <BR> <BR>If nothing else, the vest gives you padding on falls.

most of the time I wear my non-CGA vest with my boost. I let most of the air out, I don't like it in there. <BR> <BR>I wear a non-CGA vest in the summer too.

i dont were a vest under my dry suit, I cannot move with it on. Probably should wear on tho-.

Yes i wear non cga with drysuit,why?? <BR> <BR>because ive seen peoples zippers rip or a suit get punctured and rip a huge hole in it,guess what the drysuit will fill up with water quick and you can sink... <BR> <BR>better safe then sorry <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

I never used to wear a vest under my dry suit because it was a lot constrictive. then I got a hefty fine. so now I have a non cga vest and were <BR>it unde the dry suit. when the water is really cold, it helps to keep me warm<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>
