The disadvantage of a drysuit is that it is hard to adjust for changing temp and physical activity levels. With FWG, you can just open the jacket or layer fairly easily, which is not the case for a drysuit.
A march practical sailor had an review of drysuits and they said that some folks are using drysuits instead of traditonal FWG. They liked the Gill the best.
Anyone using a drysuit instead of FWG?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
