Air bergy drysuit or dry top

Should I buy a 300 dollar dry top. Or just buy a 400 drysuit, the dry suit is actually good quality, surprisingly.

What are you planning to run, when, and what kind of boat? I have both and almost always use dry top for short trips (e.g. evening runs). The dry suit is great when it's cold or rainy, or especially both. There are lot so people on MtnBuzz that always wear a dry suit. The dry suit is safer because it's got a lot of flotation and you can spend a lot more time in cold water.

The general rule is to dress for a swim. If you don't need a suit when swimming in the water you paddle, you can use a dry top. If you can only get 1, and you want to paddle in the winter, you need the suit.
