My Favourite Drysuit For Sale!
My favourite drysuit that I own is a Typhoon Multisport complete with double waist. This is the third water garments that I have bought and is by far the most comfortable and most durable of all the suits I have ever tried on. The double waist really separates it from the rest as I feel it helps keep the super little warmer than any of the others, although it does make it slightly more bulky. That said, it certainly wasn’t cheap and are close to $600 it would want to be pretty good!
Made from a high resistance 4 mm neoprene material that is durable, thick and resistant to damage I also managed to bargain the seller into giving me a pair of rock boots and so comfortable and thick warm socks into the bargain. For almost $600 it repays itself every time I go out kayaking or surfing in the sea.
Well I was debating with myself whether or not to get a drysuit or a wetsuit I happen to come across what is known as a semi-dry suit on my online travels. Semi-dry suits our combination of both dry and wet suits and cling closely to your body. Yet having tried one on I felt that it was too restrictive and so my mind was made up - I was going to buy yet another drysuit!
The best thing about my Typhoon Multisport is the buoyancy control. It’s not just my imagination playing tricks on me because I spent a lot of money on the suit, but is really seems to be so much more in tune with my body than any of the other previous versions that I owned. Just by letting a little air in and out I can effortlessly raise or lower my position in the water to exactly the height that I wish to achieve. Complete with an auto-exhausting valve my drysuit easily deflates any expanding air whenever I need to ascend to the surface.
As for the zip, any serious drysuit user knows that this is one of the most fragile pieces of the entire suit, but I am proud to say that after close to 1200 dives I have yet to have a single problem with the zip. Perhaps this is because I paid particular attention to looking after this one by painstakingly lubricating it before and after every dive, but it looks as though it is the very first day that I bought almost 4 years ago. In the past I have had problems with some of the drysuits for sale that I purchased and all of these problems arose from the zip or something related to the zip. If this is your problem areas with your drysuit then just follow the advice that I found and that is to wax your zip with either candle wax or beeswax all along the inside and outside of the teeth that make up your zip. This not only keeps water out but helps to keep it running smoothly. You don’t want to have to be looking up new drysuits for sale every few months, so putting in this small bit of effort can potentially save you thousands of dollars in the long run.
The rock boots that I received as a freebie with the drysuit probably aren’t the best in the world which you can’t complain when you get them for free. Warm, comfortable and water resistant is all that anybody can ask for good to be as durable as the drysuit was just an added bonus.
You don’t need to worry about having to replace any neck seals or gaskets with a Typhoon Multisport either since this drysuit is made in such a way that it will always remain water resistant. Perhaps it is the latex material used but I have never had a problem to date, touch wood and don’t envisage having any in the near future.
