    Yeah I'm one to research purchases, even ones as little as $20, extensively, but it's usually worth it when you find the right price/item. I spent 3 hours a few nights ago deciding on a new backpack, my old swissgear backpack is full of old fishing stuff and is thoroughly trashed. That's fine though, since I got many years out of it, and I will probably still clean it up a bit and use it when I fish from shore. I ended up deciding on the Osprey Nebula backpack, off amazon it was only $20 more than a comparable swissgear pack, and was much lighter, and had that all important lifetime warranty.

    How so? This is not Kokatat dry suit, I get it. But it could be affordable substitution if this is right product. It is meant to be used by coast guard in rescue operations.
    Damn, do I need to fill out bathtub and test it out???
