I am trying to find a good 4/3 wetsuit because lake erie is always freezing. It probably takes up untill June to hit 70. I dont know what brand to get.

Jet pilot makes great suits and also most of the oneill products are great also. Imo <BR>Good luck

Why not just buy a drysuit? Way more flexability with a baggy one and the best part is, you don't get wet.

Can i get a drysuit for 2-300 ? What brands of drysuits should i look at?

Rip Curl and Xcel are the two suits I have always used. Here is a link if your interested. <BR><a href="http://www.surfboards.com/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=105" target="_blank">http://www.surfboards.com/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=105</a> <BR>J$

I agree. Get a dry suit. Makes your season last a bit longer, and are much more comfortable than a wetsuit. <BR> <BR>"Bare" makes a nice one for about $250. O'Neil is also great. I believe a bit over $300. Both are very nice.

Yeah i am thinking about going with a dry suit instead i thought the cheapest bare was 350

I have a bare, it works just fine. I heard the neo seals on the more expensive oneil ones don't seal as well as the latex ones on the bare.

I dont see people wearing a life vest with there drysuits. Are they wearing them under them? Also what is it like trying to swim in one if you had to?

Chris, <BR> <BR>I have the O'neil Boost and love it. I always wear a PDF in the drysuit just in case but unless you empty (burp) all the air out of a drysuit you are much more buoyant due to the trapped air. <BR> <BR>As for comfort, IMO they are just as if not more comfortable than a wetsuit. Mobility is excellent (compared to a 4/3 or 3/2) and being able to wear fleece underneath makes it nice. <BR> <BR>-Tyler <BR>
