Re: If you were going to buy a new drysuit today...

I have had both and will stick with the shell suit, its lighter, dries faster if it gets wet inside, usuallly packs smaller, and you can vary the thermal protection with different levels undergarments. Plus its usually easier to suit up in a shell suit, just my .02cents
