Q:Can suspenders be used with this dry suit? Or any NRS dry suit?Asked on 4/3/2016 by Christopher
A:This suit doesn't have internal suspenders, but when the double-pull waist is cinched you can slip out of the top without the suit falling down. The SAR Suit does have internal suspenders - http://www.nrs.com/product/2251/nrs-extreme-sar-drysuit
