Liner(s) for drysuit

I got new Kokatat MERIDIAN DRY suit (before I used wet suit to paddle Moose (NY) in October,but last few years temperature is really cold and not comfortable to stay wet for 4-6 hrs)

I never used dry suit before and looking for right liners for it.

I see that kokatat sale "jump suit",

I could not figure out if it is comfortable
any other options ,models ?

I plan to paddle may - October in Canada (Quebec) and US(New England)

Thank you

My IR union suit won't seem to die. I like that it has no zippers, is easy to get on/off and is warm, but a little less thick than some others on the market. If it's not enough warmth I add a layer.

The one piece layer suits are the bomb, but they aren't mandatory. A lot of times I will wear fleece or silk weight base layers under the suit depending on weather. Sometimes when it's really warm I will just wear board shorts and a tee shirt under it. The one recommendation I would make is to always wear socks..... otherwise the inside of the suit will get funky smelly quick.

As a NW paddler where it is very cold I like to buy one or two fleece onesies from walmart. I can where it under my drysuit or around town. pretty bitching if you ask me.

Get one without the hood.

Guy Cotten makes some of the best under layers I have ever used. All weights, fair price, made in merka.

Bit spendy but the sweet merina wool under shirts are amazing. Any of the merina wool products are warm, don't take up a bunch of room and dry quickly.
