    I’m looking for a drysuit for winter kayak fishing. I could use my scuba drysuit but I’d like to answer matures call without having someone help me out of the suit (back zipper). I’m in north NJ so the water temps get down to solid but not all winter.

    What do you folks use? Thanks in advance.

    I prefer the mustang boat crew dry suit for anything but diving. I even installed a valve in mine to dive in though it’s not the best for that. I keep the zipper lined and have used it for years in saltwater and it’s comfortable and lasts.

    I’ve been looking as well, and this is the best expensive I’ve found so far. https://www.watersportsoutlet.com/2019-crewsaver-atacama-sport-drysuit-including-undersuit-red-black-6555-p-22619.html

    Haven’t pulled the trigger yet though.

    I use a Stohlquist EZ dry suit. Just started using it a few weeks ago. So far, so good. But I haven’t had a chance to jump in the water and test it yet.

    Paid $500.00 for it.

    I have an older Hydrus 3L SuperNova Angler Paddling Suit which I got on clearance a couple years ago. It has a relief zipper and a front entry. The price of the new one seems a bit outrageous especially since you can go a little higher for a goretex model. Then again I just checked those and they’re obscenely overpriced. I got mine for about for $399 from end of season sale at [outdoorplay.com](https://outdoorplay.com) and goretex versions were at least double or more at the time.

    Can’t go wrong with the Kokotat brand. This version is not quite as breathable which I found only a bit of an issue on warm days when you’re exerting yourself and sweating (such as lugging the yak and gear through the sand with it on) but then it was also not double the cost either. Note it’s a ‘semi-dry’ suit; I guess that means the neck isn’t rubber but neoprene. I find that far more comfortable honestly and less chafing. It’s not like your suit is going to have water gushing in it either if you get dunked. Hope that helps.

    I use neoprene chest waders. It’s not gonna help much if you end up out of the boat, but does keep you dry where you would get wet from launching, paddling or handling fish. A serviceable set is like $50
