I don't know if you are planning to carry on once it starts to cool down, if so you are gonna need drysuits. If you do want to pack up for the winter the sea is at its coldest in the spring when you would want to start again. Most of us use drysuits which are considered much safer, you might be better off saving your cash for them instead.

Yes, a dry suit is the way to go I have a crewsaver (crew member spec.) which cost £220 inc fleece, these suits are rated as temporary immersion suits not full survival suits which cost about £900.

At this time of the year supermarkets sell off their wetsuit stock at 1/2 price, I bought a full mens one last year for £17. A wet suit is not as good as a dry suit but will extend the season a month or two.

if you want a dry suit and dont want to pay for a new one, find your nearest dive club and get in touch with the diveing instructer and ask does he know if the club members have any seconhand wans for sale.

There are only two bib and brace type paddling pants on the market to my knowledge,the Palm sidewinder and the Peak.

I have had the Sidewinders and they leaked after a few months and ended up in the bin.

I've just ordered a pair of the Peak ones but you won't find them anywhere for £60 :nono:

To be honest you'll be hard pushed to find anything suitable for £60,I would save your money and buy a drysuit as Pinkfoot said,,,,It is not a cheap sport!! My drysuit was £320:banghead:

We don't use divesuites, you need a 'surface watersports drysuit'. Very comfy, nice fit, keep the wind out.

Just gonna echo what's been said already - dry suit is the way to go ...

In the warm summer (HA !) I use a shortie wetsuit and a lightweight windproof sailing type jacket but as soon as the water temp reaches 15c - the drysuit is back on !!!
