Ski and dry suit

My local Craig's list has a listing for a HO ski with double boots and an XL dry suit. It's a 69" turbo TRX Ski and from what I have found, it looks to be about a 93 model? He wanted $150 for the ski and suit. he will take $100 for both. Would this be worth buying? I'm sure I would use the suit this spring and I use to love to ski but don't have one at all now.

Depending on the estimated age of the suit/material would be a factor as well as the material for the boot on the ski.

I sold a couple of shorties last year and they were probably about 10 years old. Both (separate) parties responded with an "OK, but..." and the complaint was that a cinch or a collar was dried out and needed replacing. I just refunded their Paypal account full amount and said to keep them.

Probably not a bad deal if you're expectations are recreational from time to time.

Technology in newer neoprene has advanced pretty significantly in terms of stretch for flexibility. For about the same money you can get a full 4/3 suit which will keep you warm in 55 degree water. Here's the link were a buy my stuff.

OP says the ski is included as well. As long as the suit and boots on the ski are in good condition I think this is quite the deal.

I met the seller yesterday to look at the items. I thought I was meeting the man these items belonged to but instead it was his ex wife. Come to find out, she was just dumping his old stuff as he lives in tx with his new wife now. The ski and suit were both in great condition and she let me have them both for $100. I think I did pretty good.
