The main benefits of using a rebreather include no bubbles and reduced noise levels so you get closer to marine life, longer no-stop decompression dive times, reduced dehydration as the gas breathed is moist and improved safety with a reduced risk of decompression sickness.
You can dive on a rebreather for between 2-3 hours, and your dive time whilst using a rebreather is limited by the scrubber duration. Rebreathers are a closed-circuit breathing apparatus for scuba diving as an alternative to a scuba tank and apparatus.
A drysuit should be a snug fit with room for insulation undergarments under it so you can still move freely when you’re wearing it. You should not experience too much restriction on movement with layering under the drysuit, as this would indicate the drysuit is too tight. But if there is no resistance to movement, the drysuit may not be tight enough.
When you consider any guide to choice of wetsuit and water temperature, you must consider your own personal tolerance to the cold. In addition to how easily you feel the cold, also consider the topside conditions between dives on your dive interval. But also take account of the depth of your dive too.
