What can I do to prolong the life of my drysuit?
There are some easy things you can do every time you use your drysuit to protect it and prolong its life;
- Always be careful when putting your suit on, try and stand on a smooth surface and as soon as possible put on protective footwear. Where latex is involved try not to use your nails to stretch it over your body and where socks on your fit to protect the suits socks from your toenails
- Whilst in your suit try to keep away from sharp edges or other hazards that might damage your suit
- When you have finished rinse in fresh water as soon as possible. Try to dry your suit out of direct sunlight where possible and always ensure it is dry before storing. Sometimes the inside of your suit can be damp from condensation or sweat use an antibacterial wipe to wipe it down and allow to dry
- Don't leave your suit hanging by a coat hanger for too long as over time this will stretch the neck/shoulders especially if wet. The best way to hang a suit is folded over a bar/hanger
- Lubricate your zip every 3-6months with zip lubricant/wax
- Latex seals can be revived with a silicone based lubricant sparsley applied and rubbed in.
- If water stops beading on the outside of your suit when splashed it's time to revive your DWR (Durable Water Repellent) treatment. We recommend Grainger's available in store
