Things You Should Know About Scuba Diving Suitsby Dorano V. Professional PR since 2010
Before you think about anything else, deciding on a suit should be at the top of your list. Wetsuit or drysuit is one choice to consider but within that a number of other specifics are important to think about.
Before you do anything about diving make sure you have the correct knowledge. Consider getting some preofessional advice and training before making any choice. It is emphatically suggested that you get a complete training session before you dive.
Types of scuba diving suits
Today, diving suits use many kinds of materials for suits such as neoprene, vulcanized rubber, crushed neoprene, trilaminate, etc. The broader terms for scuba diving suits are dry suits and wet suits. These include the membrane dry suit or trilaminate and neoprene drysuits. Neoprene is a thick material and offers preferred protecting characteristics over a trilaminate dry suit so it will keep you warm with a thin under suit. Neoprene suits provide a more snug fit and can be tough to get in and out of. They are also susceptible to damage.
Diving suits use two kinds of seals, neoprene and latex. Both provide great seals but most prefer neoprene seals due to the amount of people who have latex alleries. Both provide a snug, comfortable fit which keep you dry.
Dry Zip is vital, and it is quite a costly piece of the suit to alter - so you will need to take good care of the Dry Zip. You need to wash with fresh and clean water and keep it greased up. It has U-zips, shoulder zips, and front Passage zips.
The inflator on a drysuit uses a hose connected to your regulator to keep your drysuit inflated. This creates a layer of air around you to keep you warmer and keep water out.
