    Also are you sure you want forward facing pockets? I would get the side. Also if you are thinking about getting dry gloves, ordering them from seaskin is usually cheapest. You can get the Rolock 90s from them. Many of the dry glove systems work ONLY for the oval cuffs, not the dock you originally had. You are not limited to the Antares gloves. The ultima gloves also ONLY work with the sitech ovals.

    I have been suggested to get forward facing pockets... Which is the advantage of having them on the side?
    As for dry gloves, I was planning not to use them since the beginning, but to use other types of gloves and then after step up to dry gloves if I like them. Anyway, if buying them in bundle with the drysuit from Seaskin is cheaper that could make sense too

    Ah given that you are in Europe, getting the dry gloves at a later date shouldn’t be an issue.

    Regarding the pockets, where did you get the recommendation from? As far as I can remember, I haven’t seen anyone on scubaboard who has the front-facing pockets. It’s supposedly for sidemount divers who have tanks on the side, making those pockets more inconvenient to access. On the side of the thigh is the “normal” location.

    The recommendation comes from a friend of mine. Anyway I can reconsider that.

    I have the deep 6 wetsuit, which has forward facing pockets...I rather like it, but that could just be that I have pockets at all...I haven't gotten a dry suit yet, but was going to see about getting forward facing pockets on it as well... But that's me

    I dive with a few tech sidemount divers. None of them have pockets on the front of their legs.

    Sidemounters generally seem to prefer a butt pouch to carry all their stuff.
