I don't have any suggestions given your price range, but you might want to
contact a good dive shop near where you live.  I would try to find a shop
that carries several lines of gear.  There aren't many companies that make
dry suits, especially in the price range your talking about, so I think you
are probably going to spend $500 up.  As I recall, Bud Freeman at UGA has
something like you're talking about.  You might want to ask him.

Subject: dry suit for stream work

Greetings Fishy Types,  I am looking for an inexpensive dry suit suitable
for snorkeling in small streams.  About ten years ago we used to buy suits
like this from Camero in Austria (they were wind-surfing suits) but I can't
seem to find them on Camero's web site.  These suits could be put on over
regular clothes and you could just hop in the stream and make your
observations.  They were rubberized heavy nylon and could tolerate immersion
in shallow water without leaking.  I don't want to spend more than $300 on
such a suit and there is no need for purge valves or any scuba-type
accessories.  Does anyone know of anything like this?  I'd like suggestions,
even if they're out of my stated price range.

TIA, g2
