Cold-water scuba divers have more choices than ever in their exposure protection. Here are the features you should consider when purchasing a drysuit, plus a look at the newest suits and undergarments on the market.
Cressi’s Spring 3.5 one-piece wetsuit is designed to be worn in waters ranging from the tropical to the marginally warm. Made from Ultraspan neoprene, the suit comes with pre-shaped legs and provides lots of freedom of movement. Its glued and blind-stitched seams minimize water seepage. Wrist and ankle seals are made with a new Aqua-stop smooth-skin cuff. The adjustable neck seal is also smooth-skin neoprene. It is available in six mens sizes and five Spring Lady sizes.
