This query came through on another list, and again for some strange reason
the first place I thought of to ask was here................
Either reply direct to the poster or send to me and I'll forward to the list

Subject: dry suit for stream work

Greetings Fishy Types, I am looking for an inexpensive dry suit suitable
for snorkeling in small streams. About ten years ago we used to buy suits
like this from Camero in Austria (they were wind-surfing suits) but I can't
seem to find them on Camero's web site. These suits could be put on over
regular clothes and you could just hop in the stream and make your
observations. They were rubberized heavy nylon and could tolerate immersion
in shallow water without leaking. I don't want to spend more than $300 on
such a suit and there is no need for purge valves or any scuba-type
accessories. Does anyone know of anything like this? I'd like suggestions,
even if they're out of my stated price range.
TIA, g2
