I want a drysuit, but don't want to spend an ungodly amount of money for something I won't need from May till October. I have wetsuits and dry tops which are fine, but I did get a little cold the other day. I have been looking closely at Kokatat and Stohlquist, but even at sale prices, I could get several nice Sawyer oars w/blades or build some new frames, which I need way more than a drysuit.
I have been looking at Kokatat's tempest pant which has socks, but it has no skirt tunnel. I have also been looking at whirlpool bibs but the goretex ones are about as much as a good suit. The tropos bibs look ok but unless they're made of the T3 material, they will be thin, not to mention cost way more w/socks and relief zipper added.
Does anyone know of a good pair of pants with waterproof/breathable(non latex) socks that have a skirt I can mate to a dry top? Would kokatat, stohlquist, IR, OS systems,or bomber gear be able to retro fit something for me?
