The Commercial Diver Network
I want to buy a new drysuit and I have some options, but I can't seem to make my mind. What do you suggest? Here is the link of the page of them http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-19/Dry-Suits-Dry-Suits.html
Personally, I would love the Bare Nex-Gen Pro. But I will stick to your recomendations.
i would suggest a neoprene drysuit. trilams are nice and all but they dont have any insulative properties. I dive a Bare D6 pro which was not too expensive and keeps me mighty warm. Also remember to always wear chaffing gear over your suit and it will last you for years.
I'd stick to Northern Diver all the way.
Here comes the plug.
If you interested let us know what you like. I'll hook up a deal for you.
brooks wetsuits sells custom fit measured over the phone tough ass drysuit to commercial guys for great rates.
call chuck, get a real suit.
I got a Bare last year and hated it. I went back to my DUI cf-200(?) aqua seal experiment. DUI, is a working divers suit. Unless they went to crap like so many other products. Blew a seal on DUI and after a couple dives the Bare broke in and it fit fine. I have a feeling it IS actually a really tough suit.
DUI if you can afford it, and are still making the same suit
Bare if you want to save a little $ on a quality suit, but they are creeping up with the other suits in price.
I also had 2 Oneill drysuits at one time and rotated them. Kinda disposable and cheap
*Both of these suits I would consider commercial/construction diver quality*
are the best I've ever used.
The Northern Diver Thor is the best one out there. Viking a close second. You can usually find a lightly used suit on Ebay. The kids that go to commercial school up in New Jersey are always selling off their suits.
