What is the easiest way to get and out of a drysuit (any tricks that made it less difficult)? What are you wearing underneath?

Since the seals are very tight, a simple trick to help get in the thing is to put a plastic grocery bag over your hand/foot to push through the seal. I wouldn't recommend putting one over your head unless you are going for the Darwin awards. Under the suit I generally wear thin PJ pants and a long sleeve shirt.

Also, be sure to pee before you put it on and if you are going to fart, be sure to vent the air out a sleeve. If you fart and forget, venting out the neck can be a horrible situation. Trust me.

Baby powder applied to the skin helps the seals slide on/off a little easier. Aside from that, always pull the seal itself and never the dry suit material when putting on/taking off your dry suit. Pulling on the dry suit is a quick way to pop off a seal.

don't strain while pulling on seals it may cause a pressure relief. if it does refer to stephans post and don't vent from the neck as this could cause nausea.

What you wear under a dry suit depends on the conditions. Anything from boardshorts and vest up to sweat suit and vest works for us in Texas, depending on the temp.

I to usually wear whatever I have on that day. But again it depends on the conditions. I have seen a few front zip drysuits show up lately on here, I think having the zipper int he front would drive me nuts. They are so stiff and rigid that it seems to defeat the purpose.

wow....used a dry suit all last winter....the grocery bag idea is great one! What I wear underneath depends on the air temp....I've worn everything from a bikini to sweats. Really resist that initial urge to pee as soon as you get in the water!

That is my exact thought every time! Especially after riding a few weeks with a wet suit.
