    Surf-fur WaterParka Boat Coat Review - For Scuba Diving
    Thanks to a tip from my dive buddy Sean, I purchased, tried and now reviewed the Sur Fur Waterparka (boat coat). It's wind and waterproof, ankle-length, reversible, and has "open" pockets that allow changing. This coat is perfect for chilly surface intervals and/or for driving home after a scuba dive. The one downside is the price, which is more than many of the cheaper neoprene boat coast, but about the same price as the Scuba Pro offering.

    I've dealt with both SP and Zenon Issel. One of the two contenders is ever so connected to end-users, the other couldn't give a . Bought several things from both.

    One of them sent me a lovely boat 'jacket' as a runner-up in a suggestion contest. Maybe the corporate behemoth alternative should take notice of their grass-roots competition...

    Truth in 'advertising':
    I have absolutely no connection to either supplier other than really good feelings for one of them.

    My TruWest boat coat has served me very well for many years now. Everyone has their favorites

    Fine by me. I only get crazy when the big money starts to limit choices...

    I bought a SurFur for my wife and she loves it. It gets a lot of use for winter dry suit boat diving, and sometimes when we are not diving but just out in the cold.
