I bought mine from Girzzly Sports for 250 shipped to my door. Just so u know, Im 5"8 188 and got a medium/Large. Its pretty baggy on me, I probabbly could have gone with just the medium. I think they make them for height more then weight. Works fine though, I jumped in my pool several times with it on and kept me dry. The water temp was around 44 feet were freezing though

Both are great suits. I have an O'neill myself. The only difference I know of is the neck seal. The Bare uses latex, and the O'neill has neoprene. From my experience, the neoprene is more comfortable but may leak a bit more on certain falls. Then of course there's the price difference.

Karl...what's OT?

pappasurf 03-30-2005 9:48 AM

I personally prefer the Oniel. It is way more comfortable, but its more expensive. Of course, you get what you pay for.

I love my bare drysuit, yeah the the seal are latex and are uncomfortable the first time but you can trim them or stick a 2liter in the neck seal for about ten minutes and let the latex stretch alittle. I have yet to have any water leak into my suit on a hard crash. Like Scott said it is all a personal choice, good luck in making your decision.

Dan OT stands for Ocean Tec......they have one on the website that is $199.99 I was actually thinking about it. But if not I will get the Bare Ultra from Grizzly for $250.00

If you don't like the OT - I'll take it back (unused). I have never had one returned.

p_b_parks 03-30-2005 8:33 PM

how is the water when u guys are using these dry suits is a wetsuit full not sufficient? jw <BR> <BR>-adam

tcluv85 03-30-2005 8:50 PM

Chris - Yes just call grizzly's. <BR> <BR>Water temps are hoovering above and occasionally below 40. Although I use mine right up to the 65 mark. I rarely use my wetsuit anymore. Why get wet and cold when you don't have to. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by tcluv85 on March 30, 2005)
