This is exactly what Ive been wanting! I would only use a dry suit for a couple months in the early spring and late fall and have never been able to justify $500+ for what would probably be 15-30 uses per year. $250 however, is much easier to swing. Even if it only lasts a couple or 3 years, I'd call that good enough.

Considering if it lasts 3 years (probably more with semi infrequent use) that comes out to around $80 per year...that's a pretty hard price to beat for most other dry-suits. I know Kokat's are the Cadillac, but at $1000 retail and $80/year comparison, you need to keep it 12.5 years to pay it off. I know it will last that long with warranty, but thats a huge initial investment. Thats more than any of my boats!

Anyways thanks for posting this. I'm seriously considering one for this spring if taxes come back in my favor
