    Suggestions for PWC apparel

    Winter is here and I'd like to know what is the preferred choice of stay warm/dry apparel. Santa Wife asked for some ideas so help me give her some....hopefully more affordable than I've found so far.

    This is my absolute favorite! http://www.amazon.com/JetPilot-Tour-.../dp/B004DZPBZM

    And I just got these. There are many styles and degrees of thermal protection. Haven't tried them yet but I hate cold wet feet. http://www.amazon.com/Seal-Skinz-Wat.../dp/B000G7VZXI

    I just addressed this matter in an article not yet published... but - I'm a wet suit fan and if you go that route, I suggest a Farmer John/Shorty combo. And make sure it zips from the front, not the back. As far as fishing goes, foot protection is important - your feet will get wet. Riding boots that drain well and are large enough for neoprene socks, as VineC points out above, are a must.

    PS: Welcome to the 'hulk.

    wetsuitwarehouse.com. You will find everything you could want there. What water/air temperatures do you want to ride in?

    I'm looking to fish from the pwc and by February's first tournament be able to do so from o dark thirty until 15-1600, mostly in the Chattahoochee River. That you have to get wet is the killer because I'm disabled and generating body heat is a hell of a tax. Once the temps warm, no problem but during late Winter and early Spring, I was hoping to find a Dry Suit that was more affordable than the Kokatats but their lower end suits are not that bad for what I'm wanting I guess.

    Thanks for the welcome, I'm just getting started with this project so as it begins to come together, I'll share the pics. The search for a suitable, affodable ski is ongoing as there are hundreds for sale around the ATL and it appears that economic conditions are serving to depress prices, which is good for me!
