    Lightweight travel drysuit

    I'm interested in getting myself one of the above that I can take with me if I'm going abroad and a drysuit would be more suitable/comfortable than a wetsuit. I've looked at a few threads that touch on this and mentioned the HDS lite 100 and ive also been having a look at the ones from robin hood. I dont want to pay silly money for one and like the look of some of the robin hood ones but was wondering if anyone has experience of these particular models or any other ones that would fit the bill? It doesn't necessarily have to be super light and as I like squeezing through wrecks I'd like one thats fairly hard wearing!
    Cheers

    Which suit is it? I was looking at their range and wondering if there's much weight difference between the commercial suit and the "flex" range? Am keeping an eye on eBay but nothing so far that would do the job.

    I may have dreamt it but I thought O'three were selling a travel drysuit at the Dive Show. I can't see it on the website though.

    Otter Hammerhead.

    It's a light basic membrane entry level suit from Otter and as such they come up all the time s/hand for
    around 100 odd. Usually has no pockets, no warm neck etc. no second flap over the zip and tends
    to have non thermal boots. All this making it lighter, but still bloody tough

    To add fuel to the fire on this...

    You can no longer (well I couldn't yesterday) buy the Ri1-100 suit, they offered me a Ri2-100 instead, due to them releasing a new suit soon, so they said. Was asking for a ML size, so not exactly an odd size either.

    ..

    I've just ordered a Santi E.Motion+ for travel purposes - 3.9kg.

    Hi. . its almost the same as the one Tell. has posted its weight is about the same as my 3/5mm wet suit and packs away a bit smaller

    PS has a cuff dump put it works OK once used to it

    For travel I'd be looking for small pack size low weight and fast drying as I often dive the same day as I fly home lol.
