Stohlquist drysuits

I'm thinking of getting a gPod or bPod. Does anyone have any experience with them? What is Stohlquist customer service like? Any recommendation as to which is better? Thanks in advance.

Their customer service is pretty solid; I've sent mine in for a free pressure test and patch every winter. bpod v. gpod I believe is just a difference in the neck gasket, if I remember correctly. I think it's more personal preference than anything, though I like the latex gasket.

I have the b-pod and have been pretty happy with its durability. I kinda got dragged along the bottom of the bruneau river(sharp volcanic type shitty rocks) earlier this year and sustained no damage. Im 6'3" and about 210lbs and got the XXL if that helps. I didn't know about the free pressure test though... interesting.

I just ordered a bpod. I'm 6'5 and they are adding 2" length to the legs and supersizing the feet. I figured not a bad deal at 20% off retail for semi custom
Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.

I've heard stohlquist has improved but I had poor durability and customer service on a couple of dry tops in years past. Am very happy w/ Kokatat.

I've been using my Bpod since I got it late last year.

I didn't think to send it in for any kind of free service. It's been almost a year since I owned it, and I plan on getting some stuff to recoat it with soon, just for the hell of it, but it's still bone-dry.

Not sure what else to say. I've really enjoyed this suit. Winter, Spring and Summer.
