    Swahank,
    Are you actually feeling the cold water as it comes in? Don't underestimate how much you can sweat in a drysuit.

    My drysuit has a little neoprene flap on the inside that goes over the inflator. The first few times I dove the suit I was always wet on my neck and chest. Turns out I didn't notice the flap folding over when I put on the suit and it was sticking out of my neck seal. Now that I know to check for that I'm dry as a bone.

    find a way to seal all teh legs arms and neck and pressurize it. roll the seals and put them between 2 wood boards and vice clamp them. inflate the suit and look for leaks especially in the area of the seals if they are replacable. be sure to close the vent valve.
