Ocean Rodeo. I have one and it rocks. It has started getting cold here and so I switched over to it and have worn it the last 4 times out and I'd forgotten how much I liked wearing it. Super comfy, lots of room and although I hear people talk about loosing mobility with drysuits, I have never felt resticted in it at all. Built tough also.

YHEP !

I already have one PYRO from Ocean Rodeo. Nice suit !
Keep you dry and warm... you choose what to dress inside.

And it's stylish :thumb: !

The price it's the only thing it's no good at all !!!

First time wearing my Ocean Rodeo Pyro, dry suit today. Air temperature was about 9 degrees celcius; water temperature was MUCH COLDER; southeast 18-22 knots. I was really warm and comfortable. The suit is so easy to enter and exit, I can change in the back of my car. My last dry suit was quite a workout to get in and out of. I found my mobility in the Pyro was fantastic. And yes, they do look good!

I just bought the Oneill Boost a few days ago. Haven't used it yet, but it fits just right and seems like it would be pretty comfy. I bought the XL the largest size available and at 5'11", 220Lbs I'm at the upper end of the fit for this suit. If I was much bigger it wouldn't work.

I'll let you know how it works on the water when I finally get it wet!

I just got the Bare next-gen ultradry, I’m pretty happy with it so far (3 sessions) though it does have a plastic zipper which I hear are not as good as brass. got mine from http://www.gotriver.com/BARE_ultra_drysuit.htm
