So I’m ordering a new drysuit…and I’m going back and forth on getting a front or rear zipper. Do the front zips suck? Seems like they’d be crunching into your chest from the pfd. I’ve only ever used a rear zip.
I have a back zip now, and have figured out ways to get it on and off when nobody else is around…I make it work. The fromt zip seems to solve that problem, but a buddy told me that the front zip is uncomfortable under his pfd. Like he always feels it. That’s why I wanted more opinions.As someone said above and I agree, once your PFD is on, the front zip is a non-issue.
I only know you from what you’ve written here on the buzz, but the independence factor (solo trip or just don’t want to need someone’s help putting this thing on) seems like a key element for you.
