Alright so here's my 2 cents. PeakUk and Palm would probably be the two best makes of cags on the market, there are a little bit pricey but the quality of them is second to none.
As for what kind of cag your looking to get, again you have two choices, semi-dry or fully dry. The difference is that fully dry has latex and neoprine wrist and neck seals whereas the semis dry only has the neoprine neck and wrist seals.I have the PeakUK Deluxe cag(fully dry), which I find to be perfect if you ever wnat to try it out just let me know I should be out most evenings with the club.

I reckon your best bet would be to call up the Dive shop around the corner from Lennox's, ask the guys in their cause they will be able to answer all the question you have, plus you will be able to try stuff on before you buy it.http://www.mdac.ie/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=1019

Im definately looking for fully dry as i alreadt have a "semi-dry" that i get wet in if i even look at the water. I was looking at the lomo dry cag, anybody know what its like? i know a few people have the full suits but their website said they wont have my size until sept. Rolling Eyes

I know it's easier said than done (specially for me who is working!), but cheaper cags can be a false economy in the long run. I've recently replaced my IR comp after 4+ years of excellent warm dry service, being used probably 4 times a week. I spent a bit more at the time knowing it'd pay off in the long run. This time round I bought a Kokatat cag, hoping the same will be true. Of course, both were the ladies ones, the IR one had a lovely pink trimming, and my Kokatat one is a delightful girly shade of purple, so probably not a whole lot of good to you (I don't know... maybe you're that way inclined!)

Hey Paul,

If you already have some kind of Cag maybe consider going for a full drysuit.

I recently bought a dry cag and pants and spent about 300e and this was when there was end of year sales.
The cag and pants are great but some water still gets in around the waist especially if you go for a swim.

I've been doing a bit of checking on the internet and it seems you can get a full drysuit from about €250 up and you will stay completely dry (even when you swim) so I'm told. Check some local shops too. They should have some good deals.

I'm half thinking I should have gone straight for a dry suit at the time but I assumed they would be 700-800 back then. I'm thinking of getting a drysuit now even though I have a decent cag and trousers. You'd still always get use out of a decent cag even if you have a drysuit aswell, i.e. maybe on the sea, racing or if the weather is too warm for a drysuit.

If you are still thinking of getting a cag, I have a YAK Celcius. I find it great, keeps you warm and dry. Paid about €180 at the time.

Don.
