Shakoo Drysuit? Any experience

Hey,
I was ebaying around for a drysuit for the season and discovered Shakoo Drysuits. At first I thought they were only for out at sea and didn't have a tunnel for the skirt but upon further investigation they make drysuits with tunnels that are selling new for 350.00$. Does anyone have any reviews about this company?

Thanks for the reply. I've been in contact with the company owner and they're sending me a custom fit suit in exchange for me keeping a log of its use and areas where it could be improved. The owner Elva is really nice, professional, and would really like to make an affordable, quality drysuit.

I contacted the company directly through their profile at HIsupplier.com, I don't think you can buy them on there as it's more of a company database.

I'll be posting an initial review along with continued reviews of the wear and how the suit is holding up.

I bought 2 Shakoo drysuits in March 2013. The feet in both of them leak badly. The material is porous. There is no way that these should be described as drysuits. After a very efficient sale and delivery after initial contact on ebay, Shakoo suddenly stops answering emails, when they have your money. The after-sales service is non-existent. Shakoo has no concept of Quality or Customer Service.
