Thanks all for the valuable info. Looks like I'll be buying one of the suits soon in time for the season.

Outdoorplay has sales on drysuits fairly often. This is the one I have been using for about 6 years: https://www.outdoorplay.com/products/kokatat-supernova-angler-gore-tex-pro-dry-suit

That looks like a good deal. A question. Is it advised to get a size up (M -> L), if wearing layers underneath?

It seems to me that the Odyssey is overkill unless you want to be like Mr. X. Kokatat has several other models that would be within your price range. 

I donít know where you can try them on, but that doesnít seem critically important to me. As for getting questions answered, Iíd think that right here would be the best place for that.

I mentioned the Odyssey since I was looking for something durable.
I guess my questions were based on sizes that would fit me. I'm between a M and L and I had questions around how many layers I could wear underneath or what kind of base layers to get based on a specific kind of drysuit.
For ocean kayaking, is it okay to have a semi dry suit with say neoprene gaskets as opposed to latex and not be worried about water intrusion when immersed? For comfort around the neck, is neoprene more comfortable than latex?

Looking to get a good drysuit. I was looking at the Odyssey GoreTex suit by Kokatat but the price tag makes my jaw drop. Didn't want to spend more than 1200 maybe.
Any recommendations on a place to try on a drysuit and where I can get some of my questions answered?

People caling for someone to ear it down. I think the ighty Pacific will ake care of that no problem come this winter. If it's really made from all driftwood I guess that's cool.  If it's made with other stuf that's gonna become new trash on the beach, it's not cool.  Transient doesn't mean not fun or cool!


Yep. The dark rock is indicative of water going up that high. That thing won't last too long I suspect.

West Marine is having a sale and saw this reel and the narrow version available for a great price. These are really awesome reels for the price and if you contact Okuma, they'll sell you the long Alijos power handle that can be used to horse those bluefin in.

General Fishing Tips / Spooler/tensioner to pack line into spool

This is a great line recycler/tensioner. Design can be improved still but works great.
