I assume that i will also have my PFD with harness and helmet. I will put this on when there is an imminent capsizing possibility.
Ever try to put on a 7mm wet suit when everything is wet and your in panic mode??
Also the price of a dry suit is considerable more then a survival suit..
I've never seen a dive suit come in international orange with attached reflective SOLAS tape
..though it's an interesting idea
