    Another questions.

    I know this is personal preference, but I'll throw it out there and see what I get. My old dry suit had built in boots. I'm not sure if that is a good way to go with the new suit or not. Neoprene socks and rock boots? Its another item to pack for a trip. It looks like USIA has 3 different types of boot options.

    1) Standard Hard Sole Boot
    2) USIA All-terrain Over-boot
    3) Soft Sole boot

    Any suggestions?

    My buddy was once diving in his sandals :) because he forgot to pack the boots :)

    I have attached boots with soft platform. The major drawback I have found is if you stand on the ground in between the dives or while getting ready when the temperature falls below 8-9C your feet get cold. Other than that I have not seen any problems yet.
