New Semidry Suit is a Good Fit for Water-sports Fanatics
Cruising sailors often need a wetsuit to clean the bottom of their boat or clear a fouled line from the prop—not to mention the added fun of snorkeling the clear, cool waters of the west coast or granite ledges of Maine. Neil Pryde’s new Elite II semidry suit answers these needs and then some. Better known to many of us as a sailmaker, Neil Pryde is also one of the largest wetsuit makers in the world, catering to windsurfers, kite boarders, and other water-sports enthusiasts. The company’s latest offering, the Elite II is a unique product that combines a drysuit-style top with a regular wetsuit bottom. The top’s "roll-neck" seal keeps the wearer’s torso completely dry, as a heat-locking liner improves heat retention.
