Drysuit or wetsuit

Post by surfydude »

Do you prefer drysuits, semi-drys or wetsuits? Or even a wetsuit under a drysuit. I like the idea of staying dry in a smooth rubber drysuit, with boots, gloves and boots attached, but I also like the tight fit of wetsuits. So wearing both - wetsuits under drysuits would be fun.

I prefer wetsuits as they tend to fit more closely and you can still have the smooth rubber outside finish with single lined suits.

I prefer wetsuits because they are tighter. Especially smooth, that's why I mostly have triathlons. But I also have a close-fitting wetsuit with a chest zipper declared as semidry and a smooth swimrun wetsuit with long sleeves, which I use instead of a short one. It is more suitable for swimming in warm weather than the classic long one.
