Neck Issues.

Post by Tricky Ricky »

Hi, had a run in with scan cancer a while ago and needed surgery around the neck area. Now I find it hard to tolerate the squeeze of a dry cag.

I was looking at the Nookie Storm Jacket which looks good for the depths of winter but would like recommendations for an in-between summer winter job.

Thanks, take care.

'Glideskin' neoprene neck seals are pretty good unless you're doing lots of rolling. Typhoon fit them as standard on some of their drysuits. If you have a cag that's otherwise good, you can buy the seals, but having replaced one I can say they are are much harder to fit than latex necks seals, and I don't recommend DiY. I'm sure people like Rubberman would fit one for you.

+1. I have one of these and it's absolutely brilliant. The soft neck material is far more comfortable than my dry suit - so much so that once it's on I forget about it - yet when rolling it doesn't let in any noticeable amount of water. I've had it for about 2 years now and it's still water tight. Try one on if you can.
