Yes, he is trying to sell product, but he is giving good information. I hate pimping also, but I don't think OR is out of line.
My wife and I own OÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢Neil and OS Systems drysuits. When we need more warmth than a 3/2 wetsuit, we throw on a drysuit over the 3/2. It works for us just as he says.

Riding alone in cold water is dangerous; doing this in offshore winds is a fatality waiting to happen.
The safest thing anyone can do when riding in cold water is ride with a buddy. The buddy system is using common sense.
If drysuits are so dangerous, why does the Coast Guard use them? Why do arctic kayakers use them? Surely, they would not take unnecessary risks.
