Hi divers, can you help. I am planning to buy my first dry suit i have a budget of 400 i have my eye on the Oceanic HD 400 Drysuit. Can anyone give me feedback on performance and comfortably or if you have any preferences on a drysuit around my price range I would be glad to hear from you.

Trilaminates are strong, but squeeze the buggery out of you until pumped up. Personally, I prefer the neoprene suits (although I use trilaminate).. they are warmer, more comfortable seals and squeeze less. Downside is that they require more lead as they are more buoyant, they are bulkier and heavier to don. I would advise you try one of each before buying... your club will let you do this in the pool.
