    Hello,

    I'm looking at the GS Dry Suit. I was at the dealer this past weekend, and everything was fine until I saw that was impossible to put the pants outside my AlpineStars Tech5. I have large calves, which didn't help either.

    Anybody tried to wear this pants inside the boot? Any comments will be appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Ricardo

    The idea of using a waterproof pair of pants inside your boots will work just fine until it rains.

    ETA: You could probably use a pair of gators for rainy weather and get away with it.

    Good point RoundTrip.

    Some pants (Klim Mojave / Dakar) have both versions (inside / outside the boot). I was wondering if it would uncomfortable wearing the DS Dry inside (because the bigger sleeve), since they're designed for outside the boot.

    Only one way to find out. Buy a set from an outfit that takes returns. :-)

    I may stretch my budget and go with the Rally suit, since the leg openings are wider and adjustable.

    Thanks for all the comments.
