Nope - not necessary to take it off your shouldersKrazy Koika wrote:It comes down to convenient piss zips for me
To do a piss in a Gul Astro, do you need to take your shoulders out completely? (Get half undressed to do so?) Or can you unzip the first part and piss from there?
We use these suits in the winther, with a warm undersuit underneath.
The undersuit many of us use is fleece with a double zip so you can just open the lower part of the drysuit zipper as much as needed, and zip the innersuit up a bit (here the double zipper is a must have for winther use with innersuit).
But you have to take your harness off (or loosen it) I think - I have to do that before taking a piss from the Gul drysuits
I have had the Astro, but am using a Gul Shadow (with latex feet) now.
The front zipper is the same type in both.
Actually much more comfortable than most 5/4/3 wetsuits, because so much easier to take a piss (thats a nightmare from a 5/4/3 as you almost have to take it completely off - especially the "climb into the neck" types )
