I 'd like to ask , can you wear an impact vest with the ocean rodeo soul? And if yes, you have it over or under the jacket?

I wear a PFD over my suit. Has to go over the jacket. Even though it looks like a separate jacket it's not really. It's attached to the main suit just under the armpits so you can't get an impact vest underneath.

Thanks again Heat 2.0 in size L & with soft socks will be ordered.
Would go for Ignite or Soul but these aren't available in L or XL size.

If someone is interested I have called distributor and as predicted due to Covid and problem with chain supply there is a shortage of Ocean Rodeo drysuites. Wanted to wait for Heat 3.0 as it has neoprene instead of latex seal but they estimate they it will arrive for spring earliest and I wanted to have something for incoming winter.

Confused by the sizes now. I have an original soul in size large. It fit pretty good. Could maybe have been a little longer in the legs. I’m a 32” inch waist 6ft2” and 86kg.
I have just tried a lk the inner suit isn’t too bad but the out coat is very baggy and there is quite a lot of sag around the arse area. A large in the new sizes says up to 82kg so not up to my weight.
The xl looks to be the right size but seems to sit below the lk size wise? Wondering if it will be too big? The lk fit height wise just a bit too baggy. When will there be more stock of suits in circulation please?

As an OR dealer, here is my two cents. All of the "king" sizes are the same length but with more. ahem, girth. I wear a MK Soul because I'm thick as oatmeal.

The Soul drysuits will not be restocked until this fall. So whatever is on the market now is all there will be until September. Ouch, I know. We could sell them if we could get them. Ocean Rodeo couldn't get them in time for the spring season and there is no sense in getting them for the summer, so we have to wait.
