The problem with a dry suit that starts leaking through a seam or the fabric gets saturated, is that you discover the problem when you are out in cold water, in rough conditions this could be a very big if not fatal problem. I watched a couple of people have drysuit failures while surfing in cold water, it did cause a fair amount of distress.
For a while you could purchase military surplus drysuits ( I think canadian air force?) they worked well for a while but tended to give out all at once.
