I have known people wear lifejackets inside drysuits for the same reason- so they dont get caught on things in the boat. However it does make putting your drysuit on even harder- and isn't the most flattering of looks.

P.S never ask a lady if shes wearing her lifejacket under her drysuit- the answer is usually an agressive no!!

Thanks, am considering getting a drysuit as I really don't like going in the oggin until at least july. Once all the air is expelled are they more comfortable than they look?

Also make sure you never rip one where it may
become submerged - or you have legs of water (not
nice if you fall in).

And don't pee in your dry suit.  It don't flush through like a wetsuit or so I've been told.

You pee in your wetsuit!!!!!

There is an advantage to wearing your BA on the outside - if you have to be rescued it gives the rescuers something to grab

No I don't pee in my wetsuit.  It was a conversation being held in the changing rooms.  He did stink!
