Chase I rock my Dry Suit w/o a life jacket. Prolly should rock one, but I hate the suit and the Jacket Combo.

There was thread a while back about a Company out of Japan that was making super sick looking Dry Suits, very snowboard inspirded like these. I have wondered for ever why they dont make them look cooler.

HOLY CRAP! DID I SEE A ZIPPER TO PEE OUT OF?!?! IF SO THAT IS GENIUS!

ON ANOTHER NOTE...I HAVE AN OLD DRYSUIT...FORGET THE NAME THAT LOOKS KINDA LIKE THAT. IT LOOKS LIKE I'M WEARING A WINDBREAKER WHEN I WEAR IT (POCKETS AND ALL)...I FORGET THE NAME OF IT, BUT IT IS A COOL DRYSUIT.

SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS...I'M NOT YELLING I SWEAR...JUST USE CAPS LOCK FO ONE OF THE PROGRAMS I WORK WITH AND I'M TO LAZY TO GO BACK A RETYPE!

CARRY ON!

I REMEMBER NOW I THINK IT IS CALLED A "RONY" OR "RONNIE" OR SOMETHING DRYSUIT. ERIK CARTER HOOKED ME UP WITH IT A WHILE BACK. LOVE THAT THING.

Dan, I too saw the pee zip. If you hadn't beat me to it I would have pointed that out in all caps too. I don't care what it looks like. YOU CAN PEE OUT OF IT!!! Only downside is I think a zipper shot to the nuts would be none too comfortable.

Oh & copy & Paste into Word and then hit SHIFT F3, it will lower case everything.

Hey Andy,

do drysuits have any kinda of buonacy to them at all? not that im not man enough to not rock a life vest!

I have the O'Neil Boost drysuit and it is very buoyant. More than my life Jacket. The problem is when the drysuit gets a hole or tear it in. It can be bad news.

I usually ride my drysuit without a life jacket, but when I do wear one, I put it underneath.

Chase,

There is no buonacy in a Drysuit at all, the buoncay comes from all the air in the suit that is trapped inside.

I know this has been knocked around in years past, but how much of an issue would it be if your drysuit got a hole in it? Wouldn't you just be neutrally buoyant? Anyone gone in the pool and tested er out?

I still wear one regardless of bouyancy just for the padding of falls. Didn't wear one one time last year and it led to a rib injury. Learned my lesson.

Big Heavy-

I fell in the water once getting right after My suit got unzipped. It filled with water and I paniced Like crazy. But actually it was okay, I was still floating and above water, it was just super hard to swim. Didnt sink tho-

That suit is definitely killer. Reminds me of that movie west side where Igor rides into the water from the snow.

Please always wear a USCGA vest guys! 5 seconds to sink after unconscious. This drysuit looks pretty bomb.
