I have had a 2 piece Level 6 dry top and bottom (with booties) for about 10 yrs now and have had mixed success with them also. They are definitely more flexible in how you use them than a one piece. Mine has had occasions where the bottoms leaked a bit at the connection with the top, and other times they have been quite dry. The most water I have ever collected in them was on a super hot day where the booties on the bottoms filled up with water (sweat) and sloshed around even though I never went into the water for a swim. That is definitely a situation where gaskets on the bottom would be better than the booties, as it is a lot simpler to drain. I also find the booties uncomfortable to wear shoes over top of, so last year I cut the booties off the bottoms and had gaskets added.
