Drysuit from the UK??

Has anyone ever ordered from the UK? WEBSITE

If so has anyone ever used any of these brands or know anything about them? From what I can see they have some very good Prices even with shipping cost

I was looking at this one 2016 Gul Dartmouth Eclip Zip Drysuit

I'm looking for something to use in Spring and Fall

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

I can highly recommend getting something with a relief zipper...

The Dartmouth looks a lot like a semi dry suite, as opposed to a true dry suite, not sure what glide skin is, but looks more like the neoprene that is used in semi dry suites, as apposed to latex neck and risk gaskets.
Never know, maybe they found a better water proof gasket material then latex.

I also wonder what the material is. It does not mention what it is made of, other than it's 3 materials. Gore-tex is supposed to be the best, but that is quite affordable if nothing else. It could be worth the risk due to the price, but I would not expect it to perform like a quality Gore-tex suit.

Can't speak to the suit you're looking at, but the prices for the suits I'm familiar with seem better than what you would pay Stateside. The shipping would make or break the deal. You seem to have realistic expectations. Go with a relief zipper and latex gaskets and some kind of booties. You'll be happier.

I hear you .......shipping is only $25...so if I went with the Dartmouth it would only be around $330 US dollars and that's with shipping

As far as the latex goes I have a latex allergy so need something that does not have latex for neck and wrist...but yes would like a relief zipper...and yes on the booties as well

Well if I go with it I will make sure to let everyone know how it turns out

Again thank you all for the in-put
