hey im looking into getting dry gear for the winter. i was looking for peoples advice on which brand. I'm thinking dry top and pants because its cheaper than a drysuit.

I was looking at these Duem ones: http://www.duemstuff.com/?p=1492
http://www.duemstuff.com/?p=1502

also Id prefer latex seals to neo seals.

Thanks,
Stephen

Alrigh steve. I have the peak uk creeker and its unstopable. I have it 2 or 3 years now and it hasnt let in a drop of water.

They stock them up in mdac if your interested.

Peak also have another model called the deluxe again a really nice cag and i had one for years too. Both models have latex and neoprine seals on the wrists and the neck.
If you are looking to avoid neoprine altogether you might want to check chillcheaters cags. I also had one of them for a while, it didnt last as long as the peak gear but it was second hand so that probably had something to do with it.


I haven't ever used one of the duem cags so i dont really know anything about them but both of the peak ones i've gotten have been bulletproof which is handy as i feel some the fishermen i've encountered over the years are armed

I have an old peak cag, it is grand. If I was changing i would prob go for the peak creeker. Micheal bought the level 6 and it was fine too. Any cag you are going to get may leak and if it does take it back to the shop you bought it in.
Like anything you get what you pay for, if you buy one of the top brands you are likely to get a good product.
Like paul said, make sure it fits right and looks good too.
I would however take those who post on ukrgb sometimes with a pinch of salt, listen to those at home who paddle often, they are best to advise.
I do find though that a good deck is nearly as more important than a cag.
And shop local too, good for the auld economy
