    Hmm...not gonna ski it...gonna send it back.

    Very robust and thick, not that easy on/off, very form fitting, too constricting for me once on...prefer my Oneill Boost.

    That is depressing. Not sure what I am going to do when my Throttle retires.
    Shut up and ski

    @MS. I suggest that when your dry suit is done we move somewhere we don't need them!

    Than_Bogan I just had www.diverightinscuba.com replace my neck seal on my Sahara. I also bought some drysuit glue and finishing tape to make a few other repairs. I did this over the winter so I can use this spring. It took 2 weeks from the day I shipped until I received repaired suit. Looks like new. Total repair with supplies and shipping was $140.

    @MattP They need to make a dry suit.

    @MS I take it you have not used one of their "wet suits"?
  • WishWish Posts: 7,982 ★★★Triple Panda Award Recipient ★★★
    @MattP I take it you have not skied days after the ice is out in Southern Canada?

    Point made. A Camaro wet suit is good...own one and LOVE IT!!...but it's not that good to take on those kind of conditions.

    @Wish Looks like I was right ;)
  • Than_BoganThan_Bogan Posts: 6,586 Mega Baller
    @Wish Nice find! Anybody try the Camaro Stormtec? It kinda looks like the style I like, but there's not much you can tell from the looks.

    We need a review. @waterskigirl Have you sold any of these?

    If it is at all as stretchy as the suits you read about here then it is a winner. 4mm wont really be that big a deal. If my 2mm was a 4mm it would half as flexible soooo....more like a second skin then my own skin as I do not even feel like I'm wearing a wet suit.

    @MattP you may want to document the date on that "being right" thing ;)

    Rip Curl nailed good wetsuits 1000 years ago.

    Actually have Camaro sending me samples of several heavier suits for those in climates that need more than the 2mm. Should have them in a few weeks, so I will have them in stock for fall if any seem right for waterskiing...stay tuned, thanks for [email protected] ms same brains!

    What do windsurfers wear? I know one of my buds who is big into windsurfing and kiting wears a dry suit for early and late season on Lake Pepin and even on Superior but danged if I know what brand.

    My current drysuit is an Oneil (assault I think)...it's ok. The best Drysuit I ever owned was a Bare Ultradry that lasted me about 12 years with very little care other than replaced cuffs once and patched a few times. You kind of have to figure Canadians would make a pretty good drysuit.

    @xrated the inversion suit that is the title of this thread is a windsurfing/kiting drysuit.

    @waterskigirl If you need a guinea pig, I might be a candidate this fall. I'm fairly unhappy with the baggy suits, but there just doesn't seem to be a good alternative right now. And I (historically anyhow) spend a LOT of time in a drysuit, so I really need one I love!

    Even if I moved south, I would always have a drysuit. Always.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.
