NRS.com
$990

Perhaps no one item is more essential for cold-weather paddlers than a good drysuit. The front-zip-entry Crux has a reasonable price tag for full waterproof-breathable coverage with all the bells and whistles (latex wrist and neck gaskets, attached dry-socks and relief zippers) from a trusted whitewater brand.
