Our Experience: A gale can't penetrate this outfit. The Airsoft foam makes it as thick and protective as a hockey goalie's gear. Hard spray just bounces off like pucks. With only a flannel shirt underneath, we were sweating on a 49-degree evening. The suit floated us in a bathtub test, but we found that every seal (ankles, wrists, neck, jacket waist) needs to be cinched really tight to keep the suit from taking on water — do not use it in place of a life jacket. We wish the hood were standard.
