I remember a post here last spring with someone selling some of the wet-drysuits, and saw someone at Ocean Shore this year wearing one. I can't find any info about the suits online. Any reviews on the suit, or is Patagonia planning on selling this suit? Looking to upgrade the 5/4 for winter and like the idea of a slim drysuit.

This was the only image of the suit I could find online.

not sure about the wet-dry suit but they did make a low profile dry suit 2014

they discontinued it for some reason. I think bigwinds may still have a few left. This is 2nd season I been using it it's great very comfortable and breathable I can even drive with it for an hour or so. Only downside is the neoprene seal on the neck is pretty thin and developed a few cracked that I been repairing with wetsuit glue but it's not that big of a deal due to the cuff and splash guard on the hoodie.

At end of session either my butt or legs would get a tiny bit wet. Not sure if it's from condensation or some slow seepage but keeps me warm in sub 40 deg water and air.

No one has info or reviews? I definitely saw one in the wild at Ocean Shores in November.

from my understanding it was only available for a year. then they went with the "drysuit" version, but don't even see that one offered anymore. if you're in HR you should ask the LF crew as they have experience with the wet/dry suit

I think it was Ocean Rodeo that made a surfing drysuit that was two layers, a thin neoprene wetsuit that went over a thin baggy-ish drysuit.

If you are looking for a neoprene drysuit that is slimmer and cheaper than most of the baggy styles check ProMotion.
