Inflatable, Waterproof Work Suit

If this suit is suitable for fishermen to work in, it could be a life saving addition to a sailors wardrobe.

Looks like a modified tropical dive dry suit. (no boots, but with leg dams)

Anyone ever seen these? Hpx Gore-Tex Ocean Drysuit | Sailing Clothing | MUSTO
Similar (old) idea, but different theme & audience. But they still Rock! Okay, rock, except for the price.
They were developed by & for RTW racers, starting with the Whitbread about 25 years back.
