Whether you’re swimming through a chilly slot or paddling an icy river, a drysuit beats a wetsuit by a canyon mile (the name says it all). Drysuits are lighter and more compact than neoprene wetsuits, and you wear them over normal insulation layers, making transitions quicker and more comfortable. Made of coated nylon, the Swift-Entry has superior detailing, effective latex gaskets, reinforced seat, and fully waterproof chest zip; the price is also nice for a high-performance drysuit. Durability is top-notch; the suit has served 3 hard years and is still going strong.
