Pro-deal... Got my Palm Stakine dry suit for $325 when they first hit the states in 03' I think. It is a little porous now, but still far better than a wet suit. Everything has a breaking point... even the $1000 Kokatat Gore-tex seams will begin to leak after one hard season of use.
Whatever brand you buy, just keep it out of the dirt/grit/sand, and dedicate a bottle of baby powder to the bag you keep it in for the gaskets. That is how I still have the Palm...
