It was not the "chili" that split the suit, but you wouldn't believe me if you saw how it split. I will also say this about the Tyvek I used, if you touch anything, the water will come through. I'm sure the heavy duty suits some have mentioned are better at keeping water out, but make sure you know what type you're buying, lest you find yourself a victim of the "chili" <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

They are a nice emergency item to have, that you don't have to worry so much about taking care of, though using a sheet of Tyvek as a type of blanket would probably work better than wearing the suit, for various reasons
