The main difference between the Nookie Blaze Suit, compared with the Nookie Charger Drysuit, is simply the choice of neck.
The Charger offers a drier, more traditional water tight seal with a double neck of latex with an outer layer of neoprene for protection of the latex and to reduce extra water ingress.
The Blaze is a much more comfortable choice with a soft, adjustable, single neoprene neck, but is not a completely dry seal so you may notice a little more water getting through. It is a very popular suit due to the additional comfort.
