As good as wetsuits have gotten; I'm surprised the inside liner material isn't better.

Are there any suits on the market that go on easy when wet?

Seems like there should be a suitable material that could make a wetsuit potentially slide on even easier if it was wet?

Stick a baggie on your hands and feet while buying another suit that is dry.

Screw the fitment charts; I usually buy bigger suits and/or wear full body rash guard suits. The former helps a LOT; the latter helps noticeably (a LOT with newer, tighter, stretchier suits).

But that's just one of several reasons my suit almost never gets put on wet. I.E., once I put a suit on (or rig a sail), I don't take the suit off until it gets dark or the wind quits (or derig the sail until I leave for home, be that tonight or 6 days away.)

Now I've kinda got a picture of Mike sleeping out under the stars at Rosey
in his wetsuit for 6 days in a row ;*)

No wonder he has to launder it.

What saves me (and anyone else within olfactory range) is that it usually gets dark each night. But that is one reason I wash my suits when I get home.
