Ah, first, sorry, I probably should have stuck this thread in Gear but didn't see it (or brainfarted).
So, clearly a survival suit is not going to work very well as a kayaking suit - that guy in your pic sailingdog is likely going to have a hard time moving let alone paddling! Do people wear dry suits on boats while in inclement weather or different gear - like suspenders/overcoat type getup - generally speaking? I would think in bad weather, envisioning the worst case, you go over with suspenders and you have a quick trip to the bottom but if you go over in your dry suit you are in pretty good shape (all things considered).
Good tips on the dry suits though. Yea, beans will be an 'avoid'. Already have the layers prepared, polartec 100 and 200 as layering based on the temps.
Ajaribonten, I will be doing a tad over a week in northern Baffin Island. Should be very exciting.
