What do you plan to do in the event of a large glove tear in sub 10°C water with a long decompression obligation?I have may gloves directly to the santi smart seals, no wrist seals. Only take the gloves off from the suit when needed to be replaced. Kind of happens 1-2 times a year. Warmest and easiest option I have ever had ️ - different brands of suits obviously have different solutions. And of course with wolly undergarment gloves.. !
Honest question.. obviously that can happen, but have you ever known anyone that has gone through that?What do you plan to do in the event of a large glove tear in sub 10°C water with a long decompression obligation?
I 100% agree with that.. I had started to post something about "why?"... but then I realized that some folks just like to dive off the beaten path.Interesting how much effort people will put into not buying a better solution.
I've had several drysuit floods in water slightly colder than that. With a proper wicking undergarment, it was more of an inconvenience than anything else.Honest question.. obviously that can happen, but have you ever known anyone that has gone through that?
I'm genuinely interested in what guys would do with the DUI zip seals?
Personally I dive with the seals cut back, but I don't do technical dives yet. I think when I do I'll probably throw new seals back in. I understand the concept that they can leak or rip... scary thought if you're stuck.
