Im in the market for a new drysuit, i need it to be affordable but effective for new England early spring and late fall competitive 420 racing. If any one has any suggestions as to brands and locations to buy them it would be appreciated.

Kokatat makes some nice drysuits, usually geared towards the Kayaking market. LINK

I had one of these until I left it in my unlocked truck; I think it was under 500.00

Practical Sailor just did a review of them. They spoke highly of the Gill drysuit.

I'd recommend

Kokatat, NRS, or Stohlquist B-Pod models. If you want gore-tex, Kokatat is the brand I'd recommend. For non gore-tex models, NRS and Stohlquist make bombproff, "economical" suits.

If you go with a drysuit, DEFINITELY get on that has booties, either latex or cloth/gore-tex. It will make get the suit on or way easier.
