    Best thermal wear for neoprene drysuit?

    Hi all, need some help.

    Well over last month I've pretty much bought everything I need for now.

    I have the Arctic fourth element top but need leggings or similar. Don't really fancy paying the price for arctic leggings.

    Anyone recommend an alternative?

    What sort of drysuit do you have?

    I have the o'three PBB system under my neo suit and love it. Just bought fourth element drybase top and bottoms to go under them for the freezy winter month. Super toasty in 9 degree water today. I do feel the cold though!

    Depends on what Neo?

    In my 5mm MSF 03 id use Arctics or a 200g Thinsulate

    In my crushed Neo 03 I use Arctics in the summer when the water is warm (13c+ but in the winter) I use PPB + a weezle extreem

    PPB + 5mm neo is 60-90min max UK diveing. When you get up 120-180mins it simply dosen't cut it


    Alternitives for Arctics?

    Nothing cheep

    Weezles are out of fasion now so they are generaly cheep and I cant fault my one and I have had Otter DUI and Santi undersuits to campare it with.

    Otter leggings are quite similar

    A 200g undersuit should be fine for that in winter.

    Depends on how cold you get, everyone's different. For instance I wear Arctic bottoms/socks xerotherm top with a subx - but then I also use a 5/7mm wetsuit fit the Red Sea in September

    I use Kwark, I have a summer undersuit and a winter undersuit. The winter one is a bit warm but the summer one isn't warm enough in winter.
