Wetsuits are not waterproof! You'd need a drysuit

wetsuits are meant to be wet!

if you are talking about keeping your body dry, maybe fleece type will do some help.
revolution is nothing but the start of the next fall.

No idea where you can find the waterproof line here.

If I may recommand 4th element suits to you though, Livingseas carry them and they are the warmest suit in their respective categories: excellent value for money very little water penetration due to the technology of the seams between the neoprene panels and the wrist, neck and ankle seals while not being restraining, are very tight/ minimise water entry, the opportunity cost is they are a bit harder to don than other wetsuits but believe me it pays off.

The 3mm is as warm as a 5mm of other brands. I personally use the 5mm for diving in water temperatures ranging from 15 to 28  deg. celcius.

I'm not sure but I'd estimate the waterproof suits to be more expensive than 4th element

im looking for wetsuit that has wrists and ankles zip for easy donning which 4th element dont have. i read reviews on henderson aqualock but not very good as the wear and tear rate is high.

Yeah if ease of donning is what you're looking for then the fourht element might not be for you. Personnally I feel the trade off from spending one or two more minutes getting in the wetsuit is worth it though!

You'll find plenty of wetsuits easy to don ;)
