Hi,
I am looking for my first drysuit. I am looking for something good that is reasonable and is of good quality, which won't break the bank and will last for a long time! without leaking???

I have heard of DUI, Hunter/Gates, Northern Diver, Polar Bears, Oceanic, Hydrotech, Beaver, Roho, Otter, O'Three, Cressi, Whites, so far. Can anybody recommend something good, is it better to go neoprene or membrane!

Thanks Jo.

Hi I am also new to drysuits but have just bought a Typhoon Nexus, and love it, I picked it up for 160 of ebay unused, I believe they are around 250 new, I have now dived with it several times and its great, after purchasing it I discovered my new dive club/school use the same suits for the school suits and are very happy with them. Good Luck

I bought an O'Three Ri2 recently and my girlfriend uses the MSF500 and they are both fantastic neoprene drysuits. Just look in any of the dive magazines and invariably the pictures all contain people in O'Three drysuits. Clever marketing or people using the best equipment. Make your own judgement, but my experience of the quality of their suits and aftersales service is unsurpassed.
Have fun!
