    Our swift water team has NRS Triton extreme drysuits and we have trouble with the boots (latex) developing holes near the ankle during storage. Has anyone had any experience with ankle seals instead of the boots for this type of work? We have temperature extremes from warm water to ice during the year so they have to be flexible.

    We use DUI drysuits for our dive rescue group, and the neoprene boots on those hold up much better. Does anyone offer a "conversion?"

    Thanks,
    Michael
